A Recent Review of this tour

Great comprehensive tour of Melbourne! One of the best we've ever taken. Not only did we learn a lot about the city, but saw some sights we would have missed on our own even with a guidebook. Greg gave us a lot of interesting facts, but also showed us some really fun places like Victoria Market and the wonderful shopping arcades. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see the 'real' city instead of just the touristy areas. An A+ tour with an A+ guide.
