As of September 2017 this service is closed. The website directs users to other services such as the free tram zone and sight seeing tours.

Value for money way to see other areas of Melbourne City not covered by the Inner Circle tram. Commentary on points of interest during 90 min.trip. $10.00 ticket is good for 2 days with hop on-hop off feature.
