We took the twilight kayak tour. Neither me nor my fiancee had ever kayaked before, and it turns out we're pretty average at it but it made no difference to a fantastic evening on the Yarra. Great views, very knowledgeable and patient guides. A truly unique experience. Loved it.

We were given the kayaking experience as a Christmas present for something different. Apron arriving in Docklands and finding where we were to meet our guides, we were given instructions on the best way to paddle and what to expect. We found it a really interesting way of seeing the sites of Melbourne by water and saw things that we... More

We (8 of us ranging from 12 to adult +) had a great day cycling in Melbourne with Kent as our fab tourguide. The tour is fun, beautiful, exciting and educational all in one and all at the right pace. I would also like to add that our booking was made super easy due to Kent's flexibility in handling his... More

We Had a great afternoon kayaking trip with urban adventures in Melbourne. The guides were a lot of fun and gave us a nice tour of Melbourne via the Yarra River. They also incorporated a few fun kayaking games amongst our group. It made for a lovely afternoon and added some good exercise in the middle of our vacation.

Great tour guides- very informative. I'm from Melbourne and was learning new information about the major sites. great views, great fish and chips, all round a fantastic way to see Melbourne. This would be such a great Christmas gift idea for friends and family and even a good/fun team building experience for work functions.

I did the Bike About Tour today and it was great. Kent was a fantastic guide and I really enjoyed riding around Melbourne. The tour can be adapted based upon the skill level of the tourists so we had a good ride. I liked seeing the city from this perspective - better than a walking tour because you can go... More

Great views of the city from water level. The kayaking is not too strenuous and can easily be achieved by another who managed to walk to the starting point. Make sure you double check the joining point. Fish and chips on the wharf is a great touch. A great activity even for this who live in Melbourne.

We recently did the Melbourne kayak tour with our two young kids and at bedtime, when I ritualistically ask their favorite part of the day, they both agreed it was the kayak tour. Kent was easy to correspond/book with and both he and Mark were informative guides that are clearly passionate about their city. Thank you for a great afternoon!
