My sister and I really enjoyed the entire experience. Our guide, Hugo was excellent his local knowledge was amazing, he was very pleasant and ensured that each of us on the tour felt comfortable and relaxed at all times. I have lived and worked in Melbourne - some time ago - and was surprised at the amount of information that I was not aware of previously. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone, whether you are a local, a Victorian, an interstate visitor or an overseas traveler I am sure you will find the tour extremely enlightening.
