Great cycle tour

Cycle tour is really nice low-key tourism, we really enjoyed it. Gives a nice overview of central Melbourne, which is totally set up for cycling more than any city I've visited.

Despite how the weather turned out, Kent took us to numerous different places that we would not have seen had we been exploring ourselves. He all have us an informed explanation of Melbourne's history. Overall, we had a lot of fun and would highly recommend this your to others. Written by my daughter.

The Kayak tour was an absolute beautiful program, even for me who is from Melbourne. I took a European friend with me, we both enjoyed the adventure very much. Kent, our guide and host was great, friendly and easy going and gave us information about the buildings alongside of the river. The sunset and the fish and chips dinner in... More

Great tour/experience - even for a local who lives and works in Melbourne! Kent and Mark were fantastic guides. Engaging, friendly, provided history/information about the area, and took it all at a nice pace which is great for those of us who are not experienced kayakers. Dinner 'on water' is included and it's a great value for money experience.

Something I was keen to do despite never kayaking before. The tour was great fun and gave a different perspective of the different buildings along the Yarra river. There were two guides one at the front for the faster kayakers and the other guide stayed at the back to help anybody who wanted to go at a more relaxed place.... More

We took the twilight kayak tour. Neither me nor my fiancee had ever kayaked before, and it turns out we're pretty average at it but it made no difference to a fantastic evening on the Yarra. Great views, very knowledgeable and patient guides. A truly unique experience. Loved it.

We were given the kayaking experience as a Christmas present for something different. Apron arriving in Docklands and finding where we were to meet our guides, we were given instructions on the best way to paddle and what to expect. We found it a really interesting way of seeing the sites of Melbourne by water and saw things that we... More
