An iconic symbol of Lisbon, the tram is a fabulous way to get around town and see the citys top attractions. Since the early 1900s, the trams have been transporting locals and visitors through the city, and with this hop-on hop-off tour, you can combine the experience of riding down the vintage tramway with a sightseeing tour of Lisbon.
Start your tour at any of the 8 stops, and ride until you want to hop off. Make your way to Baixa, Lisbons downtown district where you can explore the majestic Comercio Square (Praa do Comrcio), Rossio Square (Praa de D. Pedro IV), the Square of the Fig Tree (Praa da Figueira) or the Santa Justa Elevator (Elevador de Santa Justa), an Eiffel Tower-like structure and one of the city's most visited landmarks.
For a dose of history, get back on the tram and head to Alfama, Lisbon's historic quarter that houses many of the city's most famous sights. Stroll along the medieval alleys and visit the impressive St George's Castle (Castelo de s. jorge). Take pictures of the beautiful Monastery of So Vicente de Fora and the Miradouro das portas do sol, a grand balcony, which offers stunning views over Alfama.
Then hop on the tram again and head to the Bairro alto & Chiado, Lisbon's cultural heart and the must-see quarter if you like shopping or nightlife. Its also home to some of the city's best restaurants, so stop here for delicious Portuguese food.
If you feel like relaxing, continue to Estrela, the perfect area to escape the hustle of the city. Here you can visit the lovely Estrela Park (Jardim da estrela) and walk through the gorgeous gardens.

We waited an hour at the designated spot, the tram never showed up so we left. There were so many people waiting, even if the tram had arrived when they said it would every 25 minutes, no way everyone would have been able to board. Skip this, do a different more reliable city tour.
Commentary was informative.
The tram trip is billed as hop-on, hop-off, but it doesn't work. The trams are small appropriately and there are not enough of them, so the frequency is too long at half-an-hour.
Whether you can get on again after getting off entirely depends on how many others are doing that. We made the mistake of getting off at Stop 6, to see Castello San Jorge, but we couldn't get back on again.
Having waited an hour, during which two of the red trams came along, we had to give up as neither of them could take us. Nor would a green tram operated by the same company, so we had to get an ordinary city tram to get back to our hotel.
Effectively, we paid 87.50 for four adults and two kids for a tram through Alfama to the castle, making this by far the most expensive outing we had in Lisbon. We would not make that mistake again, nor should others. The only way to get your money's worth is to stay aboard from start to finish.
Really, the operating company should stop deluding people that this is a hop-on, hop-off service. It is anything but, as we found to our cost.
A unique way to see the delights of old Lisbon definitely would recommend to first time visitors
Every thing was great except finding the start of the tour in the first place! The trams do not leave from the same square as the 'Yellow Hop On Hop Off Buses' and there is no indication there about were the trams depart. The geographical location of the tram stop on the download would be a great help.
Take the bus tours rather than the tram tour. The best is to buy the combination of all these tours: two around Lisbon, one around Belem and the tram around downtown Lisbon.
I like this trip but a small circuit with only three points to hip-on/off. The best is combine with the yellow bus (red and blue line).
When we arrived at the tram stop we presented the confirmation and ticket printed on line. The operator of the tram stated we had to go to the office for a ticket. I explained the paper i gave him was my ticket. He had a customer aid call their office to verify our ticket. She was on the phone about 15 minutes before they finally accepted our on line ticket. When we ended our Tram tour we were told to take the yellow line bus back to the cruise ship. The yellow line told us we had to take a different line. We had to walk quite a distance to locate the correct line. The Tram Tour was okay.
