Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Melbourne City Sights Morning Tour with Optional Yarra Cruise. 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.
Bus tour was good with a knowledgeable guide and enjoyed the stops at the parks. They were beautiful and peaceful. However, don't waste your money on the boat cruise. The engine was so loud with an exhaust smell that you couldn't hear the guide. He wasn't very friendly or accommodatimg either.
This tour, especially the City portion, was very well liked by us as well as others on the bus. Our driver was very friendly and knew a lot about the city, and more. Some of the stops were a bit rushed, but only so that we would have time for all that was yet to follow, and there was a lot. The Yarra portion was good but not great. You couldn't hear a word spoken by the driver unless you stayed inside of the boat, which wasn't much of a choice because the outside area was very small. It was nice to be on the water and see the waterfront buildings, but this could also be done by standing by the water's edge and looking up and down the shoreline. Given the choice, I would find a tour that offered the city only.
The bus trip was amazing with a very informative driver lovely bus well worth doing.
The cruise on the Yarra was good
Very informative, gave a great overview of Melbourne - really enjoyed it. Optional river cruise wasn't great though - wouldn't bother.
My 24, 20 and 18 yr old children took this tour without my husband and me because I wound up in the hospital. They enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about Melbourne.
Good tour, well organised and knowledgeable tour guide! Great way to see all the sights that Melbourne offers. We also added the Yarra River cruise which was also very good!
The city tour was fabulous. The optional Yarra cruise was not necessary.
The scenery was amazing from the Yarra river. But I couldn't hear the driver, the speaker system was really poor so I don't know what he said but the scenery was amazing
Great morning trip , good way to see Melbourne and its site , tour guide was great
We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the sights of Melbourne and the arcades, the colonial tramcar was the highlight.
We were however shocked to see how many people were smoking and were horrified at a restaurant to be
offered smoking or non-smoking seating when smoking in any place serving food is now illegal!!
The tour was fantastic. The driver gave us so much information and by the time we finished the tour we felt that we could navigate around Melbourne quite well. It was a lovely coach and a great idea to take the tour rather than try to drive in Melbourne with trams etc. recommend everyone to do this !!
Drivers of both coach and boat were interesting and knowledgeable. A really good way to see and here about Melbourne if you are short on time.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. My first trip to Melbourne gave me a good insight into things to see and do. Pick up from hotel and tour ran on time. Driver was very knowledgeable about what he was showing us and the commentary was relevant and informative.
Our guide and driver was fantastic gave us lots of information and recommendations of places to eat and other things to see and do.
Excellent driver/tour guide
The balance of driving around, stopping at interesting sights and tea breaks was v good
Good trip and easy way to see the area and then decide what bits to go and see in more detail.
More stops to look at what we were driven past perhaps, but still a good way to see range of melbourne sights
Very happy and impressed with bus drivers knowledge on tour need to be able to get more pick up information for motels on site. I.e, very pleased
