Great way to do a loop of the city for free! Tram was crowded for first few stops but we got a seat after a couple of stops and did the loop. Appreciated the commentary and advising what attractions were at each stop.

A very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. The service was second to none and the food was delicious. This is a great way to show your out of town friends some of the sights of Melbourne.

It was a very convenient way of transportation within Melbourne CBD. Connected to almost all main spots which we had to visit.

This free tram in the Melbourne immediate CBD is a fantastic idea. Once you've got your MYKI card for $6 then top-up as you go, you can zip around the city very quickly. There is the circle tram but also the trams that go in...More

Great for getting about but unfortunately many people think the same making a lot of the trams very crowded. If you haven't been to Melbourne it is well worth doing a loop just to listen to the commentary on board.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

The PTV (Public Transport Victoria) website shows routes, times and has an App that despite the odd poor review was actually quite helpful. It's worth looking at as sometimes trams might run at nearby stations at more... More
