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.

    Stop! You must try the ferry from Melbourne to Portarlington. It is great. Conveniantly located near Marvel Stadium in the Docklands the trip across the bay only takes about 75 minutes. There is a cafe/bar onboard and wifi and it is super comfortable. Go the wineries or explore the beautiful town that luckily has not been overdeveloped. The pub has been restored and lunch here makes for a great day trip.

    Recently we were in Melbourne for the night before flying out the next morning.
    Stayed near the station so went to Subway and got a nice foot long BMT meal .
    What impressed me most was the place was spotless and the staff were very friendly.
    The meal was very nice and filling .
    Great for a quick and reasonably healthy meal

    This is a good service for 1 person. With recent price rises, not great for 2 or more. I got a cheaper ticket through Agoda activities - it pays to look for a cheaper deal. I saved $7. The staff were pleasant and I got a seat both ways with place for my big bags.

    The trams here are iconic and make the city so liveable as you can get all over the place. Buy your myki, put on some money and off you go! On weekends you get a lower capped price for all the travel you want.

    We have just returned from a week in Sydney, we went up and back using the XPT overnight night train from Melbourne.
    It was an experience no doubt about it.
    Booked a couple of months earlier at the office in Southern Cross Station , very simple.
    We were able to drop our luggage off anytime during the day at both ends of the trip and pick it up at the other end , that was very good.
    We choose to go first class that gives you a bit more leg room and the seats recline more.
    We ordered a hot meal on the train, that was ok , just pick it up at the Buffett car about a hour later, freshly cooked, nice and hot, eat it at your seat.
    Shortly after that the lights are turned off and you settle in for the night.
    Well I could not get comfortable at all and hardly slept a wink.
    The back of the seats are a weird shape and the noise from the creaking carriages never stopped once, it is a very rough ride.
    We were thankful to get to Sydney and get off, I ached for two days.
    A couple of days later we went to Central Stations to the Train Link office to see if we could upgrade our return tickets to a sleeper.
    Staff there were very obliging and luckily there was a sleeper available so we paid the extra to upgrade into a sleeper.
    On the return trip we were given a complimentary light supper and a complimentary light breakfast about an hour out of Melbourne, that was nice, part of the first class sleeper deal.
    It was lovely to be able to lay down and get some sleep.
    The noise and movement of the train are still the same but more bearable in the bed.
    Between each two cabins there is a bathroom, toilet, wash basin and shower, very tight and very old style.
    The staff were good, they come and pull the bunks into place and put them away in the morning, only takes them a couple of minutes. Nice towels are provided.
    If you’re going to do the trip pay the extra and have the sleeper.
    The end of the day this train is ancient with no wifi or charging points.
    It desperately needs to be renewed, this is a service connecting our two main city’s, we deserve better

    This is a public service on a tight schedule, so (a) the time you get at the key spots is REALLY short, you may need to run around a bit to make it (b) if you’re not back on time, it WILL leave (c) if there’s a delay en route (e.g. traffic), it will simply cut stop time to make up for it (e.g. ours skipped the stop at the Bay Of Islands to recover 15min). That said, it is much cheaper than commercial tours, so depends what your priorities are.

    I made a car rental reservation on Expedia. Only once I made the reservations I realized it was made with East Coast Rental Car in Melbourne.
    The prize was very reasonable. $ 210.00 for an SUV for 5 days.
    The pick up of the car is a few miles from the airport. East Coast Rental has a shuttle from the airport. They will confirm the rental a few days in advance send very detailed info how to get from the international arrival to the shuttle pick up.
    Once at their office, the pick up went very smooth. As I paid for a GPS in advance and the car they assigned to me had a GPS, I was told that they will reimburse me for the A$ 39.00 when I return the car. Was nice for them to offer the refund. As i have not driven on the left hand side for a number of years, I did take the additional insurance. Normally I don't take it.
    The car was in good condition and we did not have any problems.
    When we returned the car, again very smooth. Nothing to sign. I did forget to ask for the A$ 39.00 refund.
    Upon return to the US, I realized that they did not refund the A$ 39.00. I wrote them an e-mail. It didn't hear from them for a few days. I called them. They checked and confirmed that they will reimburse me. Within a few days my credit card account was credited with that amount.
    All in all, a good experience, good value and I would recommend them without hesitation.

    Simply put, every aspect of the service we received from Limomate by Southern Cross was outstanding. Communication before the trip was detailed and thorough. Emails were comprehensive and answered promptly and everyone I spoke to was helpful and communicative.

    I cannot say enough about our personable and engaging chauffeurs, George and Shadhid. They are to be commended for their high standard of professionalism and outstanding customer service. It was a pleasure beginning and ending our fantastic week in Melbourne being driven in their immaculate, luxurious Mercedes.

    I highly recommend Limomate for anyone looking for a luxury chauffeur service in Melbourne. We have already made our bookings with this outstanding company when we return to Melbourne for a visit next year,

    We recently used Limozine for our wedding day, Geoff the chauffeur was fantastic. So professional and accommodating with a good sense of humour. The limo was clean, well kept and just what we wanted.
    We had the limousine for most of the day at a good rate.
    Well done Limozine I give you 7 stars
