Again be objective when writing reviews people! You’re you’re not gonna see anything in the dark !!! The food was good and good value...it’s about the experience not the views. Personally I enjoyed it and he staff were attentive and friendly.

Not too much to see, 2-hour ride on a small cruise. Mostly see the city skyline, which helps me to get a general understanding of the city geography, I guess. I am, however, not sure why this was recommended to me from Tripadvisor.

Cruise on the Yarra river was interesting. We had two for the price of one tickets. Tea and coffee included. Commentary by the cruise driver was knowledgeable and witty. Worth a trip to see the Melbourne skyline.

My sister and I took our 83 father on this hour tour today. As dad is in a wheelchair, we have nothing but praise for the company. Sam, the captain, was so entertaining and knowledgeable. Sam made our trip even better. Totally recommend

Explore the heart of Melbourne with the sightseeing cruise. We were fortunate that the day was sunny so it made it that much more enjoyable.

Very nice staff, excellent service and the food was very nice. There wasn’t much in the way of music but good atmosphere at the end of the day. Great way to see the city at night
