What people are saying about New South Wales

This was a great activity for me and my son. We found that a lot of things to do in Melbourne appear to be closed on mondays and Tuesdays so we were not sure what to do. This was our 1st visit to Melbourne and navigating round was very daunting. This tour gave us an hour and a half of fun whilst visiting lots of great landmarks. There was also the opportunity to have a sneaky beer along the way. Would definitely recommend and the price is less then a schooner. Will definitely use the app again.

Chris was a gem, with grear knowledge of the area and we had a greatmix o1f oldies and young ones to make the day very special

Great day from start to finish Dennis the driver was so nice and attentive would decently recommend

We had a very enjoyably day with Julie. It was great to support the Aussie wineries we went to.

Great bus, Julie was fantastic host, very enjoyable
