If you have limited time in Melbourne, this is a great tour to see the highlights. As this was our second trip to Sydney, we wanted to spend a weekend in Melbourne. We were able to see the harbor via boat which is the first part of the tour then we were taken around the city by coach. Our driver and guide was Ian and he was fantastic. He seemed to know everything. A true scholar and gentleman. Just FYI, the coach will not pick you up from your hotel but it will drop you off there. Getting to the departure point is very easy and the city tram is free to that area. One final point, we took the train from Sydney to Melbourne. That is a long ride almost 12 hours. Thought it would be fun and bought first class tickets...unfortunately, first class is not what you may be accustomed to experiencing. Left a lot to be desired.

Good introduction to the city. Especially liked St. Kilder and Brighten Beach area. Would have enjoyed more time there. Got lost in Garden and was a few minutes late but guide was very patient.

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.

Really good trip, I just found some of the walking required a little difficult due to my mobility and age.
