    Glenelg Tram
    Visited on Saturday 6th May. Had time to kill before I could get into my hotel so caught the tram to Glenelg and back to CBD. It's a relaxing way to travel and takes you right to the pier at Glenelg.

    Worth a trip!
    Very comfortable tram ride from the north side of Adelaide to Glenelg. It was clean and efficient. We simply tapped our credit cards on in the city and off at Glenelg. Coming from Qld, I was very impressed with the beach and piers, Glenelg is a million times more appealing than St Kilda, for sure! The sand is white and there are a lot of shops as well as a museum which was really well presented including both Indigenous and Colonial perspectives.

    Lovely way to see another part of the Adelaide area
    A great way to see the sea at Glenelg and the delights of the town. We took the tram down and thoroughly enjoyed a few hours wandering round the town. There are some attractions listed in Glenelg that seem to have disappeared but totherwise a lovely half day trip.

    "Great Service, No Stress."
    Visiting from Victoria to Glenelg we thought the tram service from Glenelg Beach to Adelaide City was great. Takes the stress out of navigating an unfamiliar city. Nice to sit back and relax for approximately 40 Minutes to Rundle Mall.

    A Great Day Out
    Spent a day at the beach at Glenelg travelling there and back on the tram. A great day out. There was an Asian Food Festival on with entertainment the day we were there - excellent! Lots of independent shops and eateries to explore as well as a beautiful- and empty - beach. Tram is easy to access comfortable and a good price. An interesting journey too. Enjoyed it all.

Brilliant and easy to use public transport from Adelaide to the picturesque seaside town of Glenelg. Just tap on with your phone! Think a great beach, iconic pier, Ferris wheel, coffee shops, great bars and restaurants next to the marina, and a lovely boardwalk along the coast. A super spot for chilling, and only a couple of dollars for the tram. You'd be missing out if you visited Adelaide without spending some time in Glenelg

What a handy service this was. Parking in the City especially near the Central Market is difficult. But parking in Glenelg and catching the tram is both easy and relaxing.

Visiting Australia from UK I finally got to ride a tram. Very easy, very cheap - brilliant. Easy to pay with debit card but the route is free around the City.
