Excellent cruise, staff friendly and welcoming. I had to split the cruise owing to the river height and low bridges - but they validated the trip to Williamstown for a month - (or I could have received a refund) ..... Highly recommended if you are visiting Melbourne
\Highly recommended must do - also very friendly and helpful staff thanks :)\
Great crew, interesting commentary, relaxing way to spend a couple of hours on the Yarra. Well worth the price. Thank you.
We took overseas visitors and we were all very impressed with the commentary and the whole trip. Well done! We will certainly keep this in mind when we have more overseas visitors.
We thoroughly enjoyed the City Cruise on the Yara River, even though it was raining. The Captain and assistant were tremendous. Melbourne is a beautiful city! We would love to go back there again for a longer time, as we spent only 2 days there this time.

The cruise was fantastic. The captain was so knowledgeable and interesting, I have lived in Melbourne all my life an I we learnt so much more about Melbourne and the Yarra. Many thanks.
A great day out. There were 6 of us. The commentary was excellent and very relaxing. With tea, coffee provided. The break of 30 minutes between the upstream ride and downstream ride can work out to your benefit, giving you time to freshen up and maybe have a light snack at the many eating places close by. If you are looking to entertain friends or have a day out in the city, why not go on a river cruise? I hope to go again soon to entertain our friends at Easter.

My husband, brother and sister-in-law were given this trip by our parents. We thoroughly enjoyed it so much we are going back in to do it again with our children. Thankyou very much.

Fortunately I picked a bright sunny day, so the water was calm and the view excellent. I did an up-river and a down-river cruise and both were excellent. Nice leisurely pace and lots to see. Captain's commentry was great, he was knowledgeable and amusing.

Excellent trip,particularly downstream. Only marred at the last minute by a black sky and thunderstorm.

A trip well worth doing in Melbourne. Well organised, fabulous captain/commentator, comfortable boat. Saw the city from a wonderful perspective.

Even though the weather was overcast and a bit cool, we really enjoyed the cruise, especially the informative commentary from our Captain. It was very relaxing. The complimentary coffee was a bonus.

Great crew and lovely scenery. The only negative was that coffee was instant and not that good, but we didn't take the trip for the coffee.
We boarded the cruise from Southbank and the first section of the journey was upstream passing the sporting venues and under old bridges. We turned at a small island at a junction in the river and the return journey offered great views of the Melbourne skyline. It was a pity we couldn't stop at the island to view the the sculptures hidden amongst the foliage. The second part of the journey was downstream through the Southbank restaurants and into the Dockland wharf area. There is a lot of development in this area but it was good to see Melbourne preserving some of it's history too. We went right into the Port area before turning back on what was a relaxing 2 hour cruise. The crew were great and the Captain provide excellent commentary along the way. If you get the opportunity, take the cruise as it's good value for money and provides a completely different perspective of Melbourne from the water.
Definitely take this cruise. Although our trip was on a cloudy day, the trip was very calm and enjoyable.
The cruise is recommended due to the magnificent views of the Yarra River.
We all loved the cruise...thought that the coffee/tea could have been a little better...maybe a bikky also would have been nice but the commentary was excellent
Tour guide was awesome, but your was a little shorter than I thought.
The cruise was two hours and included free tea/coffee. It was good value and gave an ideal opportunity to see the city from the river. Recommend that you do both A and B to make sure you see all the sights!
