5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

We had a wonderful time on this tour. My husband had a real interests in the crimes of Melbourne and he is pretty well read but as we are not from Melbourne it was interesting to go to the site of the crimes. Alex the tour director was fantastic and his knowledge and ability to give us extra information was amazing. Only criticism was that it did not include the Underbelly crimes of resent times.
