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.

What travellers are saying
- The tour was great, the guide was lovely and very knowledgeable - shame it was raining! Only recommendation would be for the tour to be an hour rather than an hour and a half, it felt a little like some bits were repetition.Written 4 December 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Spacious museum with an outstanding collection of Venetian glass, English porcelain, Gandharan Buddha statues, Sisley, Pisarro and an incredible Toltec Chacmool. They could not escape lamentation about the "black bodies" and the inevitable inclusion of substandard art based on gender/race but this is to be expected. Nice garden, stained glass roof.Written 21 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- At the top of the deck, you can get a great view of the city. Stay for sunset and get a magnificant view.Written 26 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Block Arcade is a survivor of Marvelous Melbourne. The mosaic are intricately worked and the Classical style is impressive. A number of shops are doing business including Haigh's Chocolates and the Dr Seuss Gallery. Block Arcade can be entered either from Elizabeth Street or Collins Street. Block Arcade is a Melbourne icon.Written 23 November 2023
- It’s always further to walk than it looks, but a worthwhile relaxation close to the city. Don’t miss Captain Cooks Cottage.Written 21 August 2023
- We love to walk along the Southbank at night enjoying its beauty. There are lots of restaurants and the riverside was bustling with people and activities at night. Feels romantic too!Written 26 August 2023
- Very easy access from Melbourne via the Belgrave train (1 hr), and an impressive selection of trails through the Ash-Eucalyptus-Fern forest. The place is teeming with birds (butcherbirds, currawongs, rosellas, treecreepers, whistlers, bowerbirds and lyrebirds), with the cuckatoos ruling the tree crowns. The trails are maintained and marked well. Don't miss this beautiful place.Written 26 November 2023

- Yes it's a touristy destination but I always have a memorable experience be it a simple minestrone to recover from a hectic bit of touristy stuff or a fab slice of cake after a gallery visit.Written 31 August 2023
- The Regent Theatre is in the center of the Melbourne. It's been renovated, so it's returned to the glory days of the between the wars period. The Regent often stages spectacular shows, such as Moulin Rouge. One of the better points about the Regent is that it is very easy to get to, in Collins St, near the corner of SWanston St.Written 21 November 2023
- Amazing building and lots of history I’d never learnt growing up in NSW. It’s a stunning old building of great historical significance and “Matt with a beard” brought it all to life. An excellent tour with lots of information. Matt was pleasant and informative with a wonderful grasp of the history and the significance of this building and Gabriel his 2IC has a friendly helpful attitude which is welcoming. The art work is fascinating. We loved our tour and would highly recommend it to others. Definitely book in advance so you aren’t disappointed as it is very popular.Written 30 November 2023
- Lygon St is known for its authentic pizza and gelato. Lygon St is called "Little Italy," it's a diverse range of restaurants, take your choice. The historic University Cafe launched Melbourne's first espresso machine. It serves some of Lygon St's best traditional Italian cuisine. The southern end of Lygon St is more Asian oriented.Written 22 November 2023
- Portarlington to Docklands footy trip was brilliant. Smooth trip, plenty of seating options inside and out. Went outside as approached the ‘big city’ . Westgate and Bolte bridge passing, tremendous views of ports and Docklands. Even has a bar ! Crew were friendly and polite, great price, an incredible value for money journey.Written 22 August 2023
- Carlton Gardens is a marvelous place for a picnic. The lawns are lush, and the mature deciduous trees provide ample shade in Summer. The Classical fountain is imposing, it's quite spectacular to look at. Carlton Gardens is a boon to the people of Melbourne. The Carlton Gardens adjoin the Exhibition Building, they are easy to get to by tram.Written 5 November 2023
- Lucy our Tourguides was soooo nice. She’s such an out coming person and you can see that she loves her job. She’s has so much knowledge about the wildlife and the aborigines. We loved listen to her when she told us facts about the animals, the great ocean road and the aborigines. Also she made many jokes and always had a look that we felt good and safe. We had so much fun on the trip. She had some good tips for us where to go to see the best parts of the road and also offered some minutes from her break so that she can show us her favourite and hidden place. We would definitely come again to make a tour with her.Written 4 December 2023
