Shelley was an amazing tour guide for Jewish Melbourne, as her knowledge was extensive and her delivery was very pleasant. She also taps in to what her clients' primary interests are and zones in on them. She was so accomodating--we really felt this tour was personalized just for us! We were also glad she included the Jewish Holocaust museum on the tour for us ; this was unexpected. It was really a full day of learning and touring!
