We had limited our shopping everywhere else waiting for this "Oultet Shopping" experience. What a dissapointment. Only 5 people on our tour but ages 21-55+ so I can understand it would have been difficult to please everyone. I felt like we were only taken to places that Tracey could have clipped the ticket on. She wasn't very good at reading... More

Hi Pearl. Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate the opportunity to review our tour. I’m sorry you weren’t happy with the outlets we took you to. As you pointed out, it can be difficult to suit a wide range of ages. Generally we manage it as evidenced by our numerous positive reviews, but it appears that we missed the mark... More

Melbourne is known for its outlet shopping malls. This tour takes you to the places you have never heard of. Lots of time in the bus, some items hardly discounted, felt like tour operator more interested in her commission at friends retail outlets than meeting customers needs. Very disappointing as this was the day I was most looking forward to.

We had a group of mums and daughters, there were a few stops/shops that didn't cater to everyone. The bonds store converse store and mink pink were ok for the younger girls. We thought we'd get a few more bargins or different stock but we didn't. It was great to be driven around and seeing the outer suburbs. Lunch was... More

We were picked up on time by Tracey. Bus clean and her driving was safe! Weather was windy and wet. Tracey did her best to drop us near our destination and return and pick us up nearby so we did not become too wet. Lunch was very tasty as was the glass of bubbles!

My friends and I enjoyed an excellent day out shopping on the Bargains and Bubbles tour. We were picked up from our hotel promptly at the specified time. We were taken to numerous outlets that we could not have reached on our own, including warehouses, wholesalers and factory outlets. Lunch was delicious in a beautiful old pub. Overall a fabulous...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
