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.
It was very nice and lovely experience. We saw warts of the town that you are not able to see when driving...
We had a very enjoyable time on the ferry cruise to Williamstown and the guy who took us was very entertaining and very knowledgable. It was my hubby's 70th birthday and he had a ball! My nephew and partner came from NZ a couple of weeks ago and did the same cruise and was very impressed. Thank you again.
my 2 grandchildren and myself were standing in the wrong plc waiting for the ferry when we found out and ran for the proper one which was just leaving the captain brought the ferry back to the pier,it was a very relaxing trip, thank you
my husband and myself had a very enjoyable cruise around Melbourne, the staff were also very nice, would recommend this trip to any one, well worth the money and will do again
Had a great time. Watch out for high tide making the return journey a bit hair raising! Those bridges sure are low to the water.
Ticketing so easy on-line. Departure point easily recognised and signed. Return trip was smooth and interesting. Even the coffee wasn't too bad. Ferry staff attentive, informative and good guys. All in all an enjoyable day.
my husband and i had a lovely trip we would definately do it again. the staff were excellent and the ferry was very clean
The trip was a most enjoyable one and would recommend it. Also we look forward to doing it again!
Williamstown is a small town but with lovely restaurants and quaint craft and collectable shops. Unfortunately some of the attractions were only open at the weekends (not mentioned in the brochure) and the ball tower hadn't been in use for nearly 30 years! The ferry timetable listed the ferries leaving Williamstown every hour but when we tried to book on the 2.30pm return we were told that the next ferry was at 3.30pm. That aside we had a lovely day out and it is always interesting to see a city from a different perspective (in this case from the Yarra River).
Great place and good way to get there. The young skipper's speaking voice needs some work
The boat was clean and comfortable, the commentary was entertaining, and I learned some interesting facts about my hometown. When I booked I made a couple of phone calls for confirmation, and the operators were courteous and helpful.
Most enjoyable trip. Very informative for both locals and national/international travellers.
