Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Decided to tag along with a friend as he really wanted to do this, I'm so glad I did! Was actually quite fun, got a unique tour of the city with lots of interesting history of the Yarra River. Austin the instructor clearly explained everything you needed to know before we got into the boat, (two people to one kayak) and there was another instructor on hand in case anyone fell behind or ran into difficulties with the boat. They also had spf to ensure you didn't burn! Overall it was a chilled out, fun activity and they guys made me feel safe.

I purchased this as a birthday gift for my friend - we had such a great night!
I had no kayak experience before. The instructions were clear and the tour was well-guided. Kayak Melbourne really looked after everyone on water. I felt safe and was able to enjoy myself. The talks about several landmarks and Melbourne's history were a nice touch. Although we were a bit far and behind at some points and missed a few talks. Dinner on the water was such a welcome break from the constant paddling (I got so hungry!). Combining the calming water, sunset, companion, exercise and the spectacular view of Melbourne nightfall, it's a magical experience and is worth every penny. I would recommend this tour and Kayak Melbourne to anyone who's looking for a special thing to do with loved ones in the City.

One of my best trips ever. Small group, Adam a very good and informative guide. For just under 2 hours we kayaked the Yarra Rover through Central Melbourne to the dock lands, and back again. All the time with interesting facts from Adam about the city and buildings around us. Amazing to view the city from the water. Great value tour, highly recommended

I booked last minute, having a few times walked past the tour group as they were starting.
It’s super easy to do, they have somewhere to leave things if you have a bag or jacket etc that you need to leave.
Greg was super cool and relaxed and had a great attitude to the group - I found that I learned a fair bit about the area’s history as we paddled along.
Would recommend and I’m also thinking of going back again if I have time, to other evening or sunset tour
