Knowledgeable staff, interesting trips....a quick & easy way to get around! Highly recommended!




An easy way to see the city with limited time.


Great way to see Melbourne but hitting the trees was a bit of dodging and ducking but otherwise great




Was a really nice comfortable way to check out Melbourne. Would have been great if either there were more speakers, or if they wer...e louder. Overall, a really nice time and love the freedom to hop on and off anytime we wished. more

Monika Lulla

Informative commentary- difficult to keep to timetable and waited nearly an hour before leaving Federation Square so took the whol...e 2 hr city tour and went back later in week to places of interest. more


Very informative and punctual.


The audio on the first bus was terrible, although a number of people asked that the volume be turned up, it was at its maximum.... /> We stopped for lunch and the next two buses had very good volume and we could hear everything unlike the first bus.
We will have to repeat it as we missed the first hour of commentary which is a real shame.
