We spent a beautiful warm Autumn night on the Yarra. It was fascinating to watch the bustle along the banks of the river seeing it in both twilight and nighttime. Our guides Dayne and Phil both gave great instructions, were very helpful and open to questions.

As a family of five it is not always easy to find an activity everyone enjoys. We all loved this activity. The activity was at a nice and easy pace. We have lived in Melbourne our whole lives and this was a sensational way to see the City. Highly recommend.
