5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

What a wonderful way to start a surprise holiday, the vpriver cruise was brilliant and the guy gave so much info while we meandered down the river, lunch was great, vegaterian option was very tasty. Back on a lovely co for table bus, and Gordon was just a fountain of knowledge, the commentary never stopped and so interesting. I am now a concert to bus trips, as I have always thought they are for old people, but no, go out and do it a any age, you get to see everything for a greater night and learn as you go. Thank you once again Gordon for a truely memorable trip, and also for dropping us back to the hotel in Little La Trobe street.

The bus driver was great but the river cruise captain had a poor sound system.

Viewing the city from the Yarra River was really nice. The only problem with this part of the tour was the fact that you could not hear the boat captain talking and he didn't seem to care. The rest of the city tour on the bus was just fine. Gordon worked hard to tell us about the visited spots and to get us there timely despite traffic issues. He was also helpful in getting us back to the hotel

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2015

Our tour began at 12pm, the Yarra River Cruise was good, might be a bit too long on the river and maybe the cruise could be shortened a bit and its place a short stop at the Southbank. The cruise downriver on its conclusion gives the voyagers a glimpse of the Southbank riverside restaurants and the Crown Casino complex. It would've been nice to go landside for say 15 mins or so. Coming back to the cruise, the information that the skipper passed on is all good however he should minimize the ladies and gents and just get on with his presentation. The cruise is worth doing as it gives you an opportunity to learn about the Yarra River. The 2nd part of the tour was the City Tour and this is definitely worth doing. One place missed was the Queen Vic Market. I especially enjoyed the short stopovers at the Botonical Gardens, St.Kilda and Brighton Beach. The weather that day was good and our driver I think his name was Geoff did an outstanding job of driving safe and giving a lot of good information for each site. For the 1st time visitor, definitely worth your while to take this tour.
