I have booked two experiences through Viator and had the best experience, it’s great supporting Australian tourism
Very enjoyable little trip

Really enjoyed our cruise today. All the staff were very professional and the captain’s commentary was entertaining and informative. The only downside was that the boat itself could do with a little tlc on the interior: scruffy paint and a smell of rubber.
River cruise

Learning the history of the port and docklands.
The commentary was excellent.
T was busy so didn’t really get to see much and not a lot of photo opportunities
Great cruise to get a different view or Melbourne

We did the 60 minute cruise out to the Port of Melbourne. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and it felt a good balance of commentary. Due to the tide, we had to wait for a later cruise as the cruise we had booked on changed to go the other way up the river. We had already explored in the direction of the cricket ground and Botanical Gardens so wanted to make sure we saw the Port and Docklands. The boat is clean and comfortable. Definitely a must do whilst visiting Melbourne for the first time.
pricy, disorganized

Late start (30 minutes!), commentary hard to hear and only was half the trip, seats were not comfortable, the promised tea and coffee were not available, instead only warm water on a very hot day
Pricy, disorganized
