5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

This cruise was a lovely way to spend a few hours in Melbourne. We had perfect weather and could enjoy the view from the outside of the boat. My only complaint is that I wish the narration for the tour had been piped outside for our listening pleasure. We missed hearing all the highlights. We naturally assumed it would be repeated on our return trip back to Melbourne but it was not to be. Still a pleasant day and worth the money.
