great cruise

We did both up and down river cruises, Down river cruise was fantastic with great views of the city and docks etc. The up river cruise had less views. But was informative about the area and all the bridges. If you had to pick only one i would choose down river.. Great family activity.

worth the money

We took the Two Tour version. It took around two hours and we found it full of information that we never knew. My daughter loved taking photos and we all enjoyed it.

Melbourne River Cruise

Not what I was looking for. Very disappointed. Most of the sites could not really been seen due to obstructions in the way and very short.

Melbourne sights by river boat

A really good way to see the many sights of Melbourne from the river It was very relaxing and cool way to see so much in a short time. Informative commentary so you knew what you were looking at.
