This tour was a fantastic introduction to Melbourne. The content of the tour covered almost everything we wanted to do and objects of interest pointed out by the guides on the tour set our list of must dos for the remainder of the time we were in Melbourne. another two full days after the tour All guides and staff were very friendly, had great senses of humour and their knowledge was comprehensive.
We would recommend this tour to everyone.

The tramcar restaurant was also fantastic - from the service, to the sights, to the meal and the atmosphere and vibe - all exceeded our expectations manyfold. It was a wonderful experience and adventure and one we would recommend to everyone. The night was made even more perfect by the exceptional service of Chef John and waiters Ryan and Angela. Their sense of humour and professionalism really topped off a fantastic day.

The boat tour was interesting. Our bus driver Russell did a fantastic bus tour of the city. The tour bus was small which was nice and we got off at a few stops to stretch our legs and check out the city. The best part was the tram car dinner. Fabulous food in a very funky refurbished tramcar with great staff chef Joe and his crew and an open bar!!

Another must do experience. Tour interesting but difficult to hear the commentary on the river cruise. The speakers seems too weak for the loud engine noise. Packed lunch very tasty and filling. The tramcar experience was the highlight with excellent food and service throughout.

Superb day out for all and the meal on the tramcar was limited (due to space) But the food on the tramcar was out of this world - Really good day for everyone

We enjoyed a wonderful day and our thanks are due once again to the Viator team. The Colonial Tramcar experience was truly memorable, the coach tour of the Dandenongs very relaxing and made so by a courteous and knowledgeable driver.
The river trip was slightly marred by the sound system on the boat which made the droll but very entertaining commentary by the skipper difficult to hear. We look forward to our next Viator experience wherever that may be.

This was our favourite trip, it mixed a boat cruise, city highlight tour, mountain trip and rounded it off with a lovely dinner aboard the tram. A lovely day out for all!

A great tour! The dinner was good, the best part was that we sat with some of the people from the tour unexpectedly, and had a really fun time. Not too long or too short!

I was surprised at how well this worked and the quality of the dinner. First, you do need to pay attention to the location required to board, and be there at least 15-to-20 minutes prior near the Casino area. Beverages are all free while onboard. The dinner was great. You get to see the town while eating. If you wanted to impress your wife.....this is a fine way of doing it. Note, no shorts.....this is a fine dining opportunity and you need to dress appropriately.

A little cramped, but excellent food and service. Perhaps the tram car route needs to be extended to allow time for dinner as we did go over the same lines a few times. Overall a great unique dinner. A few Taxi cabs at the completion would have been appreciated. The Melbourne city tour very informative and the Yarra river cruise enjoyable. The boat captain's humor appreciated by all. A great way to spend an arvo and evening.

River Cruise was a hoot. Lunch terrible provide warm orange juice - incorrect lunch and bad tasting no place to eat as we sat on very small ice cream chairs and were placed knee to knee. City Tour had a great driver - this included neighborhoods and the botanic garden tram restaurant was awesome.

It was a lovely day to be on the river and see the city from a different perspective. The bus tour took us to places we would never have seen on our own - loved the Brighton Bathing Boxes! Dinner on the tram was a super experience. Service, staff and food were all excellent - what a great way to get around and enjoy a meal at the same time.

River cruise disappointing due to poor commentary - not loud enough to be heard over passengers. Also desserts missing from boxed lunches! Instead had a child's cookie that had gone soft! Coach tour of city excellent. Tram dinner also first class.

Excellent food and service on the tram, a memorable experience. Tour good but cruise on river disappointing with kitchen chairs to sit on. Too many people.

The river cruise was too long and the dandenong drive was a bit boring, but the Dinner on the Tram was excellent!!! Would definitely do the Dinner again.
