To say that I spent a fabulous day with Shelley would be an understatement. It was both delightful and informative! Shelley ensured that I experienced the traditional points highlighted in a Jewish tour as well as special ones - like tasting local bagels and challah. Thank you for a great day and your follow up, Shelley. Should my travels take me back to Melbourne, I certainly would like to spend more time learning about the city from you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janet Thank you for your kind review. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with you and hope we will be able to do so again in the future. Best regards Shelley
Shira GoodmanUnited States
Shelley was simply amazing. Our family of four was interested in seeing and understanding the Jewish community in Melbourne. Shelley gave us a great overview of the history and current make up of this wonderful community. Shelley took us all around. . . from the bakery to the jewish book store to the holocaust and jewish museums. she even got us into a synagogue which was closed where we had 1 on 1 time with the rabbi--a gem. Shelley knew everyone around town--she is the mayor of Jewish Melbourne.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: To the dear Goodman family Thank you for your kind review. What a pleasure it was for ME to meet YOU I just wish we had had more time together. I hope to catch up when I am in Boston as I hear great things about your community. Fond regards Shelley

Lj KuttenDenver, CO, United States
Shelley was fantastic. At the last minute my wife wanted to see Australian animals, so she changed course and took us to a nature preserve in the morning. Shelley was a wealth of information about the history of the Jews in Australia, the animals, and the plant life. My wife and I both decided if we ever made it back to Melbourne, Shelly will be our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad to be able to show you the special things you both wanted to see. It was a pleasure meeting you both. I hope to show you more next time. Best regards Shelley

Shelley is an outstanding tour guide. She has deep knowledge of the Jewish history and culture of Melbourne and the rest of Australia. She took a personal interest in us and customized the tour accordingly. She extended the tour time as we took an intense interest in the Holocaust museum. The entire experience was unhurried and thoroughly engaging. We highly recommend this tour.

Shelley is the absolute best. She is committed to her guests having a great experience. She reached out to find out what we wanted to get out of the tour and did additional research to find out where to go to deliver exactly the experience desired. This was our second visit to Melbourne and our second tour with Shelley and I can't see coming back to Melbourne without connecting with Shelley again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anne and Olivia What an absolute pleasure to be able to see you again and to show you another aspect of our great city. I hope this will only be the beginning of many wonderful experiences in Melbourne. Best regards Shelley
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!

One of the best tours we have ever had. Shelley, not only had deep specific knowledge of Jewish heritage in Melourne, she had broad knowedge as well from her living in Israel. She coupled the knowledge with passion and a most effective communication style. A highlight among many was her complete explanations of the exhibits in the Jewish Museum.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad you the tour and hope you continue to enjoy many more exciting tours with the family.It is always wonderful to see a number of generations happily travelling together Fond regards Shelley

Patricia TibbitsUnited States
The guide was prompt and generous with her time. The tour ended mid afternoon. She drove, and we walked. I saw a synagogue and toured the museum with her. We went to some shops that stock kosher foods. We did not tour schools or the Holocaust Museum. She finished the tour with a drive through St. Kilda where I saw Luna Park and Acland street. She recommended an exhibit at the state library which features books that changed the world. She redirected my plans to go to Government House from wrong guide info.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia, Thank you so much for coming on my tour. It was a pleasure to meet you. Unfortunately this time we did not have sufficient time to see both museums and we cannot now for security reasons tour inside the schools. I hope I will have another opportunity in the future to show you more of the community. Best regards Shelley
John StoryUnited States
