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 day and very informative with the information. Pleasant staff, well done.
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.
Tour was everything promised in the advertisement. We were a group of 6 seniors. 2 were local Melbourne residents of 40 years. All of us found the tour enlightening. It was wonderful to see Melbourne from the water. The trip out to the Bay/port facilities was particularly interesting and scenic. The view of Melbourne CBD with the Bolte Bridge in the foreground is not to be missed.
This trip was a good way to see Melbourne from the water... we took both the north and the south trips ....I do feel the commentary was less than enthusiastic, a bit of going through the motions and could've been more informative but, all in all if you have modulated expectations you will enjoy this trip .....
loved it that they waited for us for our trip further uphill!
Nice 2 part tour but can mean changing boats and time we "booked" was fully booked by operator and we had to go an hour later
The river tour is good. I recommend doing both tours that take you to the east and west side of the river.
You get some really good views of the city when you go down the west side, which is better than the east side I think.
Arrive 10 minutes early to board if you want to get a good seat. You can sit inside when if you want to listen to commentary, or stand/sit outside if you want to see an unobstructed view of the city.
If you are outside remember to duck when you hear the horn, because a low bridge is coming :)
a great way to see the city and learn some interesting facts about Melbourne :)
i would definitely go again!
Good boat trip, could do with updated seating.
Overall good experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the river. The weather was perfect.
