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.

    Our tour exceeded our expectations. It was such a unique experience to see melbourne from the water after sunset. Our tour guides (daniel and austin) were great! they were so helpful and friendly. this experience definitely can work for varying levels of experience. I recommend this experience!

    This was a lovely day out. 9 of us opted for a slightly bigger boat with a cover, and for a driver and it was lovely. Melbourne Boat Hire were great and even very flexible when I accidentally booked the wrong date. The team were really easy to deal with and our driver was really friendly and helpful. Could not recommend this more highly for a fun day out in Melbourne.

    The staff were wonderful , the food amazing. The only thing I could say I did not like was the fact their was no cooling making it very uncomfortable on a warm day and hard to truly appreciate the experience.

    Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day and we spent the afternoon sailing Port Philip Bay on the 60 foot traditional ketch, Alexander Stewart, with about 30 others. The timber ship is beautifully fitted out - especially down below - and sails and rigging are reminiscent of a bygone era. From start to finish it was a real pleasure - helped in no small measure by the beautiful weather. The crew, led by owner Ivan were extremely helpful and friendly and the skipper gave some of us a great education on how to handle this beautiful boat (" Steer it like a ship not a yacht!") and let a father and daughter do most of the helming under his guidance. Those who wanted to and were fit enough were invited to help with sail hoisting and trimming. Those who didn't could watch! We were free to wander around and explore all parts of the ship - it has a number of beautifully paneled cabins sleeping 18 which seemingly can be rented, two heads and a lovely central galley and lounge area. During the 3 hour trip we were served and abundance of fresh cut fruit, savoury nibbles and dips, water and soft drinks and then........ fresh scones with jam and cream and tea & coffee. All in all a wonderful and relatively inexpensive way to spend a Sunday afternoon and one I would heartily recommend to both visitors and residents.

    A family trip New Year’s Eve was spectacular watching the Fireworks on the YARRA near Federation square. The best spot to watch the fireworks and the boat4hire team were great.

    The Yarra's Edge and Marina is a mooring place for luxury yachts. It's alongside the ultra-modern Webb Bridge, which is structured to resemble the eel traps used by indigenous fishermen at the entrance of the Yarra River before white colonists arrived. It was once the swinging basin for interstate ships fot the Port of Medlbourne.

    Great bike to rent. Bianchi Aira road bike was a great ride. Responsive and agile. Definitely would rent again while in Melbourne.
