The Yarra River cruise was good but the city bus tour was wonderful. Our guide was Geoff and he was great! We went all over Melbourne in a comfortable Grayline bus. At the Royal Botanic Gardens we went "punting" on the lake which was an added surprise. The gourmet boxed lunch was very good & a good idea to eat while on the River cruise. Also, a nice stop in St. Kiilda to enjoy a "cake" from one of the many cake shops on Acland Street. A stop at the Brighton bathing boxes was fabulous - they are something to see. I researched a lot of tours for sightseeing in Melbourne and I was extremely happy with this one. The day is long but Geoff dropped each of us off at our various hotels.
