You can't find a better value for touring the city. At $5 for an entire day, with stops at all the major places in downtown Melbourne, there isn't a better deal. The information is comprehensive and you can hop on and off as often as you like, or if you just want to get an sense of how the city... More

At $5 this is a very cost effective way to locate the places to visit around central Melbourne. There are 13 stops at various locations where you can get on and off including the MCG, the Immigration Museum, Victoria Market, etc

While the free 35 tram take us within a smaller CBD loop, the Melbourne Visitor Shuttle takes you to more than one hour of journey round Melbourne on a hop on hop off basis. It is certainly a very economical way to see Melbourne! The commentary is also helpful.

Excellent service for only $5. Our driver, Jason, was very interesting between recorded commentary. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to spend at various venues this time, but it was good to view the city again from the inside of the bus.

This is the very best way to see the city right out of the gate. Hop on and take the lap around a few times so you can get use to the area and use the shuttle all the time to your advantage. everyone was great and helped with any questions we had.

For $5 it is worth the trip. It stops at different areas in Melbourne and you can get off at on where ever you like for the day. Running commentary on the sights. Bit of history. Our driver spoke several different languages to the delight of the overseas visitors.

The driver makes this either a good experience, or a really good experience. Our driver, Ben, is excellent at his job. He is talented with the ability to speak several languages, and thereby greet his passengers in their native tongue. His commentary was done in a way that was not boring, but allowed room for a laugh every so often.... More

Comfortable buses, commentary and only $5 for the full day. 90 minute loop if you don't get off but plenty of stops to get off and explore more of Melbourne. Buses come along every 30 minutes and is designed to take in the major tourist spots within and just outside of the city centre.

We bought our ticket from Federation Square and caught the bus from stop 2. This was a great way to see Melbourne outside of the Free Tram Zone without worrying about a transport card. There are 13 stops along the way and you can purchase tickets from Federation Square Information Centre or at each of the 13 stops (small ticket... More
