The trip was fantastic specially the commentry was good both on the bus and the ferry. However, a better quality ferry would have been much appreciated.

We had a great tour. The bus driver was very informative and took us to many places. A great way to see the major attractions around Melbourne City and Port Melbourne. We were disappointed in the river cruise part though as the boat went away from the city and there was not very much to see from a Tourist point of view. I understand that tides have something to do with the direction in which the boat will travel because the boat cannot fit under the low lying bridges, however there is no mention of this on the brochure nor when booking. As the boat had a total of 10 people on it, we should have been given the option to come back later in the afternoon when the tide had changed, however this was not offered until I asked ( after the river cruise ) and was advised that we could do this if we wanted to pay a nominal fee. The small fee was not the issue, we should have been advised prior to getting on board. All in all though, it was pleasant, but not as much to see. Would recommend. Neville and Sue

Value for money! Well organised. Staff friendly and courteous. Vehicles clean and comfortable. I appreciated learning how to complete a 'hook turn'

Very well organised. Although it was raining heavily it was not disappointing. Driver was very informative. Bus was a little late in picking me up, but I put this down to the heavy rain and traffic.

Excellent tour with entertaining and informative commentary. The Yarra River is really the Melbourne harbor which is mostly industrial,not a lot of photo ops but the boat tour operator's commentary was superb. Bus driver and boat operator were very helpful assisting my disabled wife.

We were very impressed with the hospitality of the drivers. We did not realise when we arranged to get picked up at our hotel that it would be as well organised as it was. Getting all the different bus companies to pick travelers up and meeting at the departure point was a very good idea. We found our driver very informative which made the trip very enjoyable. Without the tour we would not have seen as much of Melbourne as we did. It was very enlightening and we would recommend it to anybody.

Even though it looked chaotic at the beginning, we has a good time. It was organized chaos. It was up to our expectation. We regretted not going on the other tours.
