5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

My wife and I together with another couple, all from Melbourne suburbs, took the ferry cruise to Williamstown and back on a day when the weather was perfect. The ferry tour was very exciting and the commentary each way was excellent. The service was of very high standard and we thank you for the fun day. At Williamstown we did a guided tour which lasted about one hour and that also was first class.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

It was very nice and lovely experience. We saw warts of the town that you are not able to see when driving...
