If you are in the city (CBD) the ride is free. So I cannot complain. New trains and lots of tourist as well so just enjoy the ride eventhough it's full.

Great way to get around Melbourne. Get on and off as you please. It's free. Often the tram has a voiceover providing information about what is at the next stop or iconic buildings and landmarks along the trip.

City circle team was well worth doing. It's free and it offers a very informative commentary of the city. You have the ability to hop on and off as you please.

Central Business District
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
