What people are saying about Melbourne Museum

Overall rating

4.9 / 5

based on 24 reviews

Excellent but no mention that the history being recounted was of European settlement only and there were already people here who had been here for thousands of years Some mention of the first people would have made the talk more accurate and honest. However Annette was an excellent guide- cheerful, helpful and and a wealth of information

Super great

The city tour was great, you could ask a lot of questions, which were answered and the tour was adapted to our needs. We also received suggestions for staying in Melbourne.

Exceptional

Better way to see the city and get to know it in a short time, impossible! Eliseo acted as driver guide, adjusting the tour to the preferences of the clients.

Very enjoyable tour

Even though this was booked more for my husband who’s a keen horse racing and cricket fan, I enjoyed the tour too.

Very good organization, friendly and competent guide Tamara. Good final meal.
