Greg is an excellent guide! Our tour took us past many interesting places in Melbourne. Greg is very knowledgeable and explains things very clearly. We loved seeing the market and some of the old building facades. He also helped us plan the rest of our limited time in Melbourne. We would strongly recommend Greg.
