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.

Excellent tour of some historic sports venues in Melbourne. Kel explained the history behind some of the venues which hosted 'firsts' in Melbourne and Australian sports as well as the info about the better known stadia. We also got to drive round most of the F1 track albeit somewhat slower than the race cars.
The second half of the trip was less sports orientated, which suited my wife, and an excellent tour of South Yarra, St Kilda, Brighton and South Melbourne Market. Again supported by lots of interesting facts. We also got to walk round a couple of areas to get the feels of these Melbourne suburbs.
All in all a great trip with Kel and Mel.

Thank you Chris and Linda for such a great review - particularly as access to some areas was limited due to preparation for major events. Hope you arrived home safely after your amazing holiday.

We have done two tours now with Kel and Mel and both have been excellent. Booking was easy. The itineraries are very well thought out and the attention to detail is second to none. We saw not only the usual tourist sites but several off the beaten track. Highly personable - Kel did a wonderful job of sharing his knowledge, and both were charming companions, as well. Felt that they truly cared about us and did their best to make our tours and time together memorable.

Kel and Melissa are extremely welcoming and provide a wonderful insight into the sights and suburbs visited. This is my third tour with Melbourne Encountour and I would highly recommend this small and intimate company. Kel is so knowledgeable and informative, and also has a great sense of humour. It was great to be a tourist and visit iconic places in our own city.

We absolutely recommend this trip to everyone visiting Melbourne for the first time. They have done a thorough job of explaining the history of Melbourne especially sports. We visited the MCG, Rod Laver stadium, rode on the F1 circuit (Albert Park), and also grabbed a coffee at the Melbourne market. We enjoyed traveling with them and saw how passionate they were to share everything they know about the place. Thanks Melissa and Kel for a fantastic time!
Cheers

Often when you book an experience there is a little apprehension as to what the experience will actually deliver.
Although the reviews were good we were a little unsure.
However from the very minute we met Melissa and Kel we knew we were in good hands!
The tour delivered everything that was promised and more.
Very informative, very thoughtful touches and lovely warm hosts.
We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon and would totally recommend this.

Actually, I would rate this a 5/5. The people who guided us there were really friendly to be honest!and we got to understand a-lot of Australia’s history and the great people out there.Surely, when we come back we’ll get to ask our friends ( tour guides ) to help us again.

We had a private tour with Kel and Melissa and it was just like a day with good friends. They are proud of their city and it shows. They created an itinerary that included everything we asked for and more. It was a jam packed day that included stops at the Brighton bathing boxes, a drive past various sporting venues, a visit to the main highlights of the city and a lunch stop at The Stables. We were treated to commentary on the history of the city and enjoyed every minute of the day. There could not have been a better way to experience Melbourne, and we recommend Kel and Melissa to anyone who wishes to have the best tour ever.

Thankyou Melinda and Jerry for your gracious comments. Melissa and I were happy to design a tour of Melbourne which received your generous endorsement. From the moment we picked you up from your cruise, we knew we were in for a brilliant day. We certainly bonded well which made the tour fun for us all. We value your recommendation.

Had a wonderful afternoon with Melissa and Kel. They are very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for them. Saw amazing streets and homes, had afternoon tea at a historic house and a relaxing walk along the river. I absolutely recommend this tour.

We too had a wonderful afternoon. It was a pleasure meeting you both Barbara and Cathy. We are conscious visitors need to see what Melbourne is all about, not just the CBD. We live in a city we are proud to be a part of. Hopefully we’ll meet again on one of your trips back to Melbourne.
