Awesome time. Bike tour G8 way to see C B D. Guide Mark is special. Do the morning tour cause of the heat. Moonlight kayak tour a gem. Kayaks very stable an easy to paddle. Felt like coming into Venice as we paddled up the Yarra river. Ask Kent to pick you up as it's hard to find. Transit bar... More

Fantastic evening kayaking through the CBD. Lovely touch having dinner in our kayak. Tour guides were brilliant. Extremely friendly and encouraging. Seriously anyone can do this tour. I took my 70year old mother and she loved it. Would highly recommend and happily go again.

Absolutely fantastic experience kayaking on the Yarra in the early evening. The two guides were well prepared and professional and made the experience one to remember. The length of time was just enough and the sights from the water were unbelievable. I would recommend this experience, if you are considering something slightly different when visiting Melbourne.

It didn't matter what you ability to paddle a Kayak, you were well looked after. The views were great and there was no rush at all. Sights were explained and opportunity given to photograph.

Adrenaline still pumping which is what is keeping me up this late writing a review on perhaps the most organised Kayak tour I've ever experienced. I've been to other countries and experienced various Kayak tours but none could compare to this tour. While the starting point took us to a random boat shed, the directions on their website along with... More

Mark and Dave were our guides and they took good care of the group. Kayaking gives you a unique view of the city through the harbor and up on the Yarra River. My only suggestion would be to give a little more information on the sights/history/buildings that we are paddling by. It would make the tour a little more rich... More

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
