The crew were very friendly and accommodating. The food and wine was outstanding and the whole experience exceeded our expectations! However, if you're wanting great views, I recommend only doing the dinner cruise in Daylight savings and choosing the lunch cruise at other times...

A truly wonderful night. Staff were lovely and the food was very enjoyable. I was surprised though that the staff did not walk around offering to fill glasses up as guest had to go to the bar themselves. I would definitely recommend this event to others.

Hugo was amazing! His knowledge of the best places to eat, his knowledge of the local food scene and his passion for the city of Melbourne and its history was infectious and second to none. It was a great experience I would highly recommend to anyone!

Dinner was delicious & great choices to choose from. The service & the cleanliness of the boat was wonderful. It wasn’t squashy with guests either. Highly recommend.

was lots of fun, it was great experience with ben and learning about the different parts of Melbourne!
