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.

Great tour, plenty of time to explore at key stops. William our driver was excellent...the right balance of input We almost goofed on pick up times, failing to read the not so small print, that hotel pick ups were well in advance of tour start time. Maybe this should be in BOLD BLOCK
