Great experience. Guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. Great training for first timers. Amazing evening. Highly recommended.

Great way to see the city. Great not just for tourists but for local Victorians as well. City skyline looked amazing from the water. This tour is highly recommended. Great guides. Very friendly. I would definitely be doing it again. Fish and chips on the kayak was a nice experience.
