Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Melbourne City Afternoon Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
On a very hot day, the coach was cool, almost cold. The tour was enjoyable, but felt a bit rushed. Maybe that's the way it has to be when there's only four hours. The driver was pleasant and informative.
This was more than I thought it would be. I just imagined this would be a tour through the immediate city but it was more than that.
I was very satisfied with Viator and will use the company again.
Really enjoyed the trip to the Dandenongs and it made for a really great 6 days of relaxation for both my daughter-in-law and myself.
This was out first day Down under so we were still playing catch up. but had a very good time. It was nice just to sit back and let someone drive us around and see the sights. The drive up to the mountains and the stop for scones and tea were great. The girls loved the birds. Jerry Greeneville TN USA
Whay made this tour really good was Gordon the bus driver/tour guide, He is a really friendly and chatty man and his comments throughout the trip were informative and interesting. The tour itself was pretty good but some of the highlights mentioned are only seen from a distance (Old Melbourne Gaol for eg). All up however, this was a great tour and I would recommend it.
Good tour and well worth doing if limited for time. Billabong tea was excellent. Boomarang throwing was great fun as well.
The tour was fantastic, very good bus driver and very friendly he did not stop giving commentary for the whole tour. I enjoyed the Dandenong’s and the tour operator provided Billy Tea, Crackers with Vegemite and Lamingtons, very Australiana. I would utilise the tour operator again.
The driver was friendly and informative and I learned a bit more about the city as we drove through it. The only problem was the break-down -which just happened and was nobody's fault. In fact, I felt sorry for the driver having to deal with us passengers in these circumstances and I felt he was possibly let down by those who said they would be with us in 1/2 hr but, in fact took over an hour. In spite of all that, good value and I would recommend this tour to others.
We thoroughly enjoyed it. The driver was very pleasant and gave a good, clear commentary. We would recommend it to others. Thank you
Great tour guide, loved the trip to the Dandenongs....would love to have stopped in one of the quaint villages for a devonshire tea...would have just made it to a 5 star.....
Since our flight was delayed we had to cancel and rescheduled for another day which was easy to do with the tour service.
Bus driver was fantastic - informative and friendly - would recommend this to my friends
We bought the tickets 2 for 1 so the tour cost $36 each. For that money it was great value but full price is a bit expensive.The driver who picked us up and the driver on the tour were both very good. The tour driver made all of the trip interesting and was most obliging about dropping people off when we returned home. All in all a great afternoon. Maybe they could invest in some real lamingtons and not pre-packaged.
A very good way to get to see Melbourne and the surrounding countryside, if you are short of time as we were. The coach left on time and the driver was very informative throughout the trip. It was nice to see both the city and the Dandenongs in one afternoon. Would definitely recommend it and it is good value for money.
Waited a long time for the bus to turn up 40 minutes late, but when it did everything went well from then on. The guides were knowledgeable, great fun, and the route and stops were very scenic. Good value for money.
It was a nice trip with my first day in Melbourne. The guide was really good with a good sense of humor. I recommend it!

The commentator knew his stuff. He was articulate and presented the facts with candour and clarity. The trip could have had two or three other stops to see the sights at closer range and take some memorable photos. One of the better trips I have had in a while.
It was a great way to see lots of Melbourne in a limited time. The driver was friendly, humorous and informative.
Although it was very quick, the trip around Melbourne and up into the Dandenongs was excellent. We really enjoyed the Bush Billy tea and Lamingtons, and the bus driver's tour talk was interesting and informative. We had a good time.
Nice trip but mainly focused on the Dandenong Rangers.
Very informative and friendly driver. Trip was good - was supposed to have a photo stop at the memorial but did not. Most of the trip was centered on the Dandenongs and would have liked more time and stops in Melbourne city - as in Melbourne City Highlights !!!
