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

Great 3 hour tour through Melbourne

If you only have a short time in Melbourne and want to get a quick overview, then this 3 hour tour will serve your purposes. Especially St. Kilda and the visit to the Eureka Skydeck are a must for any visitor.
