    The cruise is really slow since its on a river, however the first hour was really boring, the cruise to wards Dockland was very very nice , I wish I had only done the house

    Fun on the River

    Magic cruise, I did both the gardens and the city, and what awesome value. Couldn't have asked for nicer staff. Our skipper Carlos answered all my questions with a smile and was handsome also! Can't wait to visit Melbourne and do it all again! (loved the free tea and coffee as well as the sights) Many thanks to Melbourne River Cruises!

    Check in early

    We had booked a river cruise to go up and down the Yarra River for 11am. It is a two hour cruise. We turned up early to confirm our booking and was told due to tides that the cruise would be split over two cruises with a couple of hours between the cruises. This wouldn't suit us as we had a plane to catch in the afternoon. They were happy to change our cruise to the Williamstown cruise which we took. It was a great cruise down to Williamstown where we hopped off and went and had lunch then caught the next cruise back an hour later. Was a great day out. Would recommend if you have some time and are looking for something to do.
