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

  • We were disappointed to see if we'd booked onsite at federation square we could've got '2 for price of 1' for this trip! Dissapointed and feeling ripped off! Bus trip was great with a very good knowledgeable driver.

  • We were not impressed with the Yarra River cruise, very noisy from all the children I know it's school holidays so because of all the noise we could not hear the driver talking. The bus trip after that was fantastic, the driver was loud and clear and very knowledgeable.....

  • Verygood and enjoyable...Highly recommended!

  • The Coach tour and Driver were excellent. the Yarra cruise and lunch 5 out of 10

  • it was a good afternoon out, tour guides were knowledgeable and very friendly. enough stop off times so you had time to explore and relax.
    the lunch option was pretty good too :

  • A very informative tour both on the ferry and the bus, although the ferry was very tightly packed with no room to eat the lunch supplied.

  • 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.
