It's our first time coming to Melbourne and this package allows us to see an overview of the city via 1 hour river cruise on Yarra River and 3.5 hours city tour via Coach bus. Our tour guide and driver James is very knowledgeble and provides us lots of history and story while we are on coach bus ride touring the city. We were able to stop by Royal Botanical Garden, Port Melbourne, St. Kilda, etc. Enjoyed the lunch box and sandwiches provided by the tour. A great tour if you would like to get an overview of the city. Enjoyed the dinner so much at the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. It's a unique dining experience. You are able to enjoy the dinner and view the city view outside the tramcar as well. The 3 course dinner are delicious. Highly recommended for first-time visitor to Melbourne.

We booked this experience for the early evening 3 course meal. We were seated quickly and professionally by the staff. The seating was comfortable. The food was of a very good quality considering the cramped conditions for the chef and staff. Our head waiter was Peter who was originally from England, he looked after us very well, making sure we had everything we needed and keeping our glasses topped up. The whole experience was great, eating good food, drinking great wine while watching the sights of Melbourne go by. This is not to be missed when in Melbourne.

We enjoyed the atmosphere and food, but especially the entertainment by our Chef Joe! He made a big deal over fellow traveler Simon, singing his birthday song, plus a lot more in a fabulous operatic voice.
