About the tour

Join Alexander as he hops on an old, 1920s traditional W-Class tram and shows you how they used to travel back in the day from the passenger's point of view! These trams are a blast from the past and they are a pleasure to commute in. We will also learn more about the history of Trams in Melbourne, their significance to our city, their pros/cons, and we might even make a few friends along the way! We'll then hop into a 1980s tram and lastly, finish our trip on a brand new modern-day tram! This will be a fun progression through time and we'll enjoy witnessing how far the technology has come throughout the decades! This will be a trip, unlike anything you've ever experienced. So if you're looking for something a little different, then hop along and join the ride! Is there a more enchanting way to enjoy a city?


Meet Alexander

Alexander

Alexander wants to live in a world filled with appreciation for other cultures, free travel and guacamole as a global currency (we’re allowed to dream right?!). “Storytelling has always been a passion of mine. Whether it’s it in the form of acting, writing or showing people around my captivating city. It feels great to express my passions in so many different ways” Alex says, while sipping on a decaf soy latte (a very common beverage in Melbourne, also known as Australia's coffee capital). Alexander believes that it would be a waste and disservice to his fellow humans to not show them around his backyard (well, not his actual backyard, but you get the picture). He’s dedicated to sharing his city’s beauty and history, and once and for all proving to people that kangaroos don’t just bounce around everywhere. Alexander has been running tours for the last 4 years, with his most popular tour being Melbourne’s Hidden Penguins (there you go, saved you a trip to Antarctica!). When he is not touring, Alexander works as an actor, filmmaker and blog writer.

I loved taking different trams from a variety of periods, from an old school one to the most modern one. A fun way to sightsee Melbourne!

I enjoyed my tour with Alex! He shares a lot of information about Melbourne and gave us a great look at some of the ins and outs of the city. He answered all of our questions, and I look forward to travelling with him again!

The first tram on the tour had a pre corded message that was going on while Alexander was talking. It was very difficult to hear what he was saying. Perhaps coordinating with the tram driver to find out timing of these pre recorded messages will help.
