We took this tour on Saturday, May 6th. We were picked up at our hotel right on time and shuttled down to Gray Line's staging area at Federation Square, where we waited along with other tour customers for the buses to load for the various tours that Gray Line runs in Melbourne. The process was very efficient; we didn't have... More

Their service is very good, nice coaches, very on time. Fantastic Commentary. They would have been perfect if they make improvement during queue up for Tours at Federation Square. As it is approaching winter and morning are very cold. If they use portable heater or offer simple hot tea for those waiting in the cold, it will be perfect. Wifi... More

Day tour started at 12, with a boat trip on the Yarra river. Very good commentary by captain, trip a little disappointing as it was mainly of the dock area, but still quite interesting. Lunch had been provided for on the tour and was good. Then followed a coach tour, for about 3.1/2 hours, visiting the botanic gardens, Brighton bathing... More

What a fantastic way to see Melbourne! Let someone who truly loves this city, show it to you with true passion. That's what our fabulous driver, Rob, did on this day. We wanted to see as much as possible in a day and so we combined the morning tour and afternoon tour of the city sights with a lunch break... More

What a wonderful day we had, despite the occasional mist and drizzle. Con was our driver and was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed his commentary, although at times it was difficult to hear. Many of the passengers talked while Con was trying to give us information and Con had to ask them to show respect for the others who wanted to... More

The morning tour was okay. The walking tour would have been more interesting if the tour guide could speak english alittle clearer and sure of her information. The PM tour to Phillip Island was long but that was expected. Our weather for the first two stops were canceled because of a huge rainstorm. Our driver continued to try and show... More

We visited Australia this February for our honeymoon and while visiting Melbourne our agent booked The Great Ocean Road tour with Grayline. To say this tour was epic is an absolute understatement. The bus was very well maintained. Our captain Mr. Rob was unbelievable- professional, knowledgeable, funny and witty, all at the same time. He told us so much about... More

The staffs were nice and provided us good information. Too bad, it was a short tour. It was too rush for us. We hope we could spend more that 30 mins at Koala conservation center. However, we had a great time at the Penguin Parade.

Kelly D, Manager at Gray Line Melbourne Day Tours, responded to this review

Hello sbralee Its a shame you found your tour to be a rush. I'm assuming you joined the 1.15pm tour of the Penguin Parade? It is quite a big day, returning at this time of year at about 9.30pm. We spend approximately 45 minutes at the Koala Conservation Centre which is an appropriate amount of time to spend here. We... More
