WOW....This was a absolutely amazing experience. Leisurely paddling on a perfect afternoon, delicious fish and chips, beautiful sunset reflecting on the city and interesting facts shared by Kent our guide. The flame display was the icing on the cake. Don't miss this trip. Thanks Kent.

When you visit Melbourne, one of the things that jumps out at you is how perfect a city it is for cycling. There are so many gorgeous bike paths through the middle of the city and along the river, and Melbourne Urban Adventures takes full advantage. Kent was our guide, and he customized the route for a group of 3... More

We went on a bicycle tour of the city this morning and it was amazing! Our guide Kent met us and the others by the river, adjusted our bikes, gave us an overview of where we would be going, answered questions and off we went. We got to see so much more of the city than we would by foot.... More

Fantastic way to experience Melbourne and one of the highlights of our holiday. The tour was suitable for beginners as well as those experienced kayakers. Our guide Kent was very professional and gave clear instructions and assistance in adjusting foot rests and using the paddle. The kayaks are very sturdy and there is a waterproof pouch in the life vest... More

What an incredible night we had! I was a bit apprehensive before I went but there was no need. David and Gavin looked after us. They paddled at the front and rear as we saw the incredible sights of Melbourne at night. We live in Melbourne but could never have imagined how spectacular the city looks like from the river....

Great way to see Melbourne from a double kayak on the Yarra River. Kent our guide, was very knowledgable and able to steer us successfully away from the river cruisers. Paddling time about 1.45 hours. It didn't matter it was drizzling, all added to the fun. Would highly recommend the trip.

Riding bikes through Melbourne is the best way to see downtown. Kent got us through the area with minimal traffic, staying primarily on bike paths, but still catching all the urban highlights. He is a perfect guide. Organized, knowledgeable, and well prepared, yet very easy going and a fun part of the group. Will make sure everyone is comfortable and... More

Absolutely fantastic, highly recommend this tour. I am not a tourist as I live in Melbourne but I saw Melbourne like never before. It's wonderful to be on the water at night and watching the city come alive. Guide was fantastic - very friendly and professional. The Fish and Chips was delicious! Felt safe at all times. My 16 year... More
