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 !!!
It was good but I would have liked more about Melbourne's old buildings.
The driver was excellent, with strong knowledge of the local area as well as Australian history. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
tour was so so , due to weather, because weather was too cold for visitors from India, so we can't visit all th place as per schedule
Was a good half day trip, guide shared some great knowledge on lots of things around Melbourne and great deals
It was very interesting thought it could of seen more of Melbourne.
Nice adventure for a person from France...Long way to go to see hand fed birds, but view was very nice....
We enjoyed this tour but would have found it more beneficial if additional time was focused on Melbourne city and less on the surrounding area.
Melbourne is an exciting city. Unlike Sydney, there were no "red buses" or free tour buses. This was a good way to see the city.
I found the trip details to be a bit misleading. I expected us to get off the bus a lot more and also expected us to have more time when we got off the bus at certain venues eg. We only had 10 minutes at Brighton. Tour guide was great though. Felt we could have done more on our own.
The tour was basically fine, except for the driver and her commentary.. She didn't stop talking for one second the whole time. We do enjoy a meaningful commentary along the way, but then she would waffle on about anything and everything else. A commentary that might in total occupy about half of the tour time is all that is necessary. I think most people also enjoy some more relaxing periods of quietness and just taking in the scenery. Even though the tour was okay, in talking to our friends we are advising people to keep clear of your operation. Perhaps she is just following your issued guidelines to drivers. Thanks
It was ok. It should have been the entire day though. A lot of the city was skipped and we couldn't get off the bus to take pictures. It was too rushed.
We didn't stop at some of the places listed in the brochure.
Tour did not stop at any site in Melbourne City. The Dandenongs part was excellent.
I thought this tour was a complete waste. Firstly the bus did not stop at any attraction except for 45 minutes at the shrine of remembrance and a few minutes at Brighton Bathing boxes. I have been on a lot of city tours and they are planned such that people get the opportunity to get down for a few minutes at every attraction and click a few pictures. That was not the case on this bus. I actually had to go back to some of the places to take pictures as it wasn't possible to take them from a moving bus with the glare of the sunlight on the window. The driver was also busy showing us apartments in Melbourne than spending time at the tourist attractions. He took a detour and went to Toorak to just show us someone's mansion as he thought it looked obnoxious. Everywhere he was spending more time taking the bus through bylanes and showing apartments so much so that it looked like we were touring with a real estate agent. A complete waste of time and money. I would not recommend this tour.
They never picked me up at the hotel, there was no number to call on the voucher, so they basically stole my money.
It was one of the most terrible tours that I've ever taken in my life. The main reason for such a terrible rating is that Darryl our bus driver and tour guide spoke about personal information relating to himself. I had recordings for your review. Terrible!
