26 Jan 2015 We loved it! Took a little while to get into the hang of it but Dave and Matt were really helpful.
20 Jan 2015 Exceeded expectations. Very enjoyable
20 Jan 2015 Great fun!
18 Jan 2015 Our tour guide was fantastic and we had great fun! Looking forward to seeing the photos he took on his phone as he promised he would email them to us...!
01 Jan 2015 So glad I decided to book the Kayak tour. Kent, Dave, Sarah and Gina were all really friendly and gave us plenty of information about the local area and a little bit of architectural/structural transformations along the Yarra River. The trip was awesome and I would definitely recommend to others and hope to do it again myself!
17 Dec 2014 A fantastic night was had by all of us. We loved it so much we would highly recommend it and would love to do it again sometime. Thanks
15 Dec 2014 What a great way of spending a slightly rainy evening in Melbourne! The fish and chips afloat were a treat. We had a great time, thank you. Adrienne and David
05 Dec 2014 Very enthusiastic main guide, Kent, who took the time to greet and talk to everyone in our diverse group of 12. A good, enjoyable form of exercise to see my hometown in a new light. We were blessed with lovely weather and the kayaking was easier than I thought - definitely something doable for beginners/someone who's never kayaked before. I thought 2.5 hours was the perfect length for the trip as well, and although the starting point is a little tricky to find, the finishing point is at very convenient Flinders St station for onward connections/more city exploration afterwards.
04 Dec 2014 We struggled to find the place and were a little worried if we were in the right place and the surroundings were not the safest looking! But once our guide found us and we started on the tour it was fantastic! Definitely a highlight of our trip to Melbourne
16 Nov 2014 Having lived in Melbourne all my life, I thought I knew this city, but this experience shows you Melbourne from a totally different perspective. The harbour, the cityscape, the river, the reflections at night - incredible.
