    We were lucky to get a sunny day and the cruising was beautiful. The boat goes down river for an hour, then up river - so you can have a 1 or 2 hour cruise in whichever direction you want. The commentary is a recording (and was very good) but the Captain will jump in when he wants, and he was very informative. Can’t say much for the other guy - zero personality and barely even spoke, even when spoken to. We were lucky enough to catch a ship being piloted out, it stopped us from going the usual distance as the ship had precedence in the river, but it was a great view, and the Captain gave us a great commentary on the whole process.

    We went on the 21st of December, 2023. It was a gift from my partner’s parents for his birthday 2 months prior. We had such a good time. The four course meal was delicious and generous, plus the service was amazing - especially the Italian host / server who looked after us and checked in on us all night. He was so kind and attentive, which really made the experience feel extra special for us, to the point that my partner even gave him a tip at the end. Watching the sunset and the night views were beautiful as well. I would highly recommend booking this experience for a special occasion.

    This boat tour offers a great opportunity to get your first impressions of the beautiful city of Melbourne. You can see how many sports facilities characterize the city and have fantastic views of the skyline. I can only recommend the tour.

    Nice little cruise up the river. Loved the music - caters to all ages. The voice over giving information of the sights was good. Not overly enthralling but some spectacular views of the city! Maybe do the docklands cruise instead, there's only so much nature you can appreciate in one trip.

    The Melbourne river cruises is a great way to explore the city in the boat. It takes about 2 hour round trip and that is if you do not get off at the stops. Highly recommend if you want to see the city in a short time and the boat also tells you information on the city as you go along the river.
