This bus tour is very informative and our bus driver was very nice, pleasant and helpful. He also gave us tips for getting around the city and what other tours were available. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone new to Melbourne. The Shrine of Rememberance was the highlight of the trip for us.

Large group in the full sized bus but it all went smoothly and I enjoyed being able to stop and take photos at the James Cook Cottage and the Shrine of Remembrance. The cruise was lovely too and saw things you won't see by road. Enjoy!!!

This was a great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. Lots of time available to spend at each stop. The most memorable part was the visit to Acland St in St Kilda and visiting the Shrine of Remembrance. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour. Picked up from my hotel exactly when they said they would and transferred to Federation Square where we boarded a smaller bus. Tour took in all the city sights, the Shrine of Remembrance, The Botanical Gardens and out to St Kilda and Brighton Beach to see the beach huts. Tour was just long enough with just the right number of stops and return to the hotel. Definitely worth it.

I thought this tour was a complete waste. Firstly the bus did not stop at any attraction except for 45 minutes at the shrine of remembrance and a few minutes at Brighton Bathing boxes. I have been on a lot of city tours and they are planned such that people get the opportunity to get down for a few minutes at every attraction and click a few pictures. That was not the case on this bus. I actually had to go back to some of the places to take pictures as it wasn't possible to take them from a moving bus with the glare of the sunlight on the window. The driver was also busy showing us apartments in Melbourne than spending time at the tourist attractions. He took a detour and went to Toorak to just show us someone's mansion as he thought it looked obnoxious. Everywhere he was spending more time taking the bus through bylanes and showing apartments so much so that it looked like we were touring with a real estate agent. A complete waste of time and money. I would not recommend this tour.
