The cruise downstream gave a very comprehensive coverage of the city, docklands, and harbour areas. The upstream trip was a peaceful cruise through parklands and sporting facilities, also showing some expensive suburban homes. Complete with excellent commentary, the two cruises gave a good introduction to the attractive city of Melbourne.
It was very interesting and worth doing. I would recommend to others to do if they haven't been to Melbourne before.
Worth doing, person at check in suggested an equal cost alternative that seemed to be better value and which we took.
A great way to see a lot of Melbourne in a short time, ideal for those who want to cram a lot into a city break.
Pleasurable trip. Due to weather conditions, we could only manage one part of the trip. But staff were very friendly and professional.
The cruise was worth it and the commentary was very informative. The views from the boat were great and plenty of leg room on board. I would recommend it for a weekend activity.
This is a good way to learn all of Melbourne's history!
This your was very enjoyable, and it lets you get a feel for the vibrancy which is Melbourne! There is plenty to see at Southbank when you finish the cruise, also. Lots of lovely restaurants.
The A trip was great, but B was a bit bland. Would definitely recommend A!!
The river cruises in Melbourne prove to be a relaxing and informative way to see the main points of interest, and to get one's bearings before exploring the city in more detail.
We found this cruise very informative learnt a lot about Melbourne.
i did find the driver to be a bit lacks in that a one stage while coming into a doock he cut off a rival cruise boat and then tried to blame her, cruise was 11am Sunday.
The tour was good. I went with family and we all enjoyed very much. The down stream trip was better than up stream but down stream visit was delayed due to high tide.
It was fun accompanied by a knowledgeable and funny tour guide...
and right on schedule.
Definitely worth doing to see Melbourne from different perspective.
The afternoon trip was much better with more to see and the captain was very good, as we came to different things of importance he explained about them . We all had a good laugh at the stories behind the scenery . Something should be done about the Coffee, it was terrible a plane biscuit would have been good .
This was a wedding gift from some Queensland friends and we thought we knew Melbourne so it was a pleasant surprise to learn more about our home town. Really enjoyed seeing Melbourne from a different view point and finding out about some hidden treasures like the island. Found the constant crossing the river to pick up and drop off people a bit frustrating but understand it's probably quite profitable for the company. Loved the relaxed nature of the captain Garth and his sense of humour.
Was okay, but the first part could have been better, as you didn't see much of the City.
While we enjoyed the river cruise, there were aspects that we were nor aware of when booking.
Firstly, the cruise was in two parts, A and B, and either part could be taken separately.
The cruise was advertised as 3hours, in actual fact it lasted little more than 2 hours.
The commentary was interesting but not as descriptive as we would have liked.
We were not advised until the day that, if the tide was high, we would not be able to go downstream because of lack of clearance under some of the bridges.
Fortunately, there was just enough clearance for us to do the downstream leg on the day.
All in all, it was good but not great.
