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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan and Paul It was my pleasure to show you some of Jewish Melbourne. I hope this will not be the last of your voyages of discovery into what Australia has to offer. Wishing you a safe return. Best regards Shelley

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! 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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lily and Aaron I am so pleased you enjoyed the tour and am always happy to help people learn about our wonderful city and community. Best regards Shelley

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

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

Shelley was superb. An intellect of a University Professor who gave us the "Full Monte" of Jewish life in Melbourne. Loved visiting the ethnic suburbs as well as the other Australian spots she showed us. Would highly recommend her for any of the tours she offers. This one was fantastic. Ellen and Paul Walk
