Alert...this is a Gray Lines tour. The tour has great potential, but the driver tour guide Jeff, although very friendly, put us all to sleep. Good information but delivered in monotone, like he has done it over and over.

We do not enjoy the afternoon tour. We hope there will be a stop at shrine of remembrance for us to take photos rather than the botanic garden. The stop at Brighton beach bathing boxes was too short only 10 minutes and we were rushing to take our photos. We can't really enjoy the beautiful scenery at Brighton beach.

The tour was very informative. My favorite stops were the Shrine of Remembrance and the very colorful Brighton bathing boxes.

I enjoyed this thoroughly! The tour people were friendly and their knowledge was outstanding. I was late due to my plane being held up, but the staff went out of their way to contact me and waited for me to meet the tour!

A very good introduction to parts of south Melbourne area. We were expecting to see more of the inner areas but was our misunderstanding. The tour supplied all it advertised.

This was a great tour, really informative. I learnt so much of the early and more recent history of Melbourne. The tour covered a wide area of the City and suburbs. Our driver John was really engaging and so patient with all the passengers some language barriers to overcome and confusion with where they wanted to be dropped off. The driver certainly made the tour enjoyable, it was well worth the cost.

An excellent way to get a good overview of the city and surrounding areas. Had a very informative guide/driver and enjoyed the sights from a comfortable bus. Frequent stops were appreciated but at times one felt a bit rushed.
