Melbourne itself is so exquisite and breathtaking but having a tour by Fred makes the city come alive! Accommodating, exciting, kind, funny and adventurous, Fred was the best man for the job. We went on our group tour using Oceania tours after we had completed other tours with various companies and regret not booking all tours with Oceania (Fred especially). Fred has a passion for his city and is so informed about all things Australia, Melbourne specifically. Fred quickly became our friend who helped us navigate the city, giving us tips and insights to beautiful Melbourne. Thank you Fred and Oceania tours for creating a trip we will never forget. Please check out all Oceania tours has to offer and there is no doubt you will enjoy your adventure.

Our tour guide Fred was amazing, so in love with his City and ready to tell us everything we needed to know about Melbourne!! He also had a great sense of humour and was very welcoming! It was our first morning in Melbourne so it left a fantastic first impression of what is a great City!! Hope to see you again soon Fred, ‘the Honeymooners’. (9th Feb) p.s. sorry for the late review, getting back to reality was tough!

We normally do a hop on, hop off the first day of a city visit, but this time we opted for the small group tour and were glad we did. We also got lucky when our guide, Cariminda, told us, with a bit of German accent, we would be the only one's in the car and we'd have her full attention.
She was extremely knowledgeable of both the city and its' history. We were able to get out of the CBD and see areas like St. Kilda, South Melbourne, and Albert Park, getting a full view of Melbourne and everything it has to offer.
I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

Many thanks for taking the time to review our city tour. There is often a lot more to a city than just what the average tourist sees around their hotel, and we find our guests get a much better understanding of what makes Melbourne tick when we share some of our suburban highlights with them. We are delighted that you enjoyed that experience with us.

This is the first time I feel compelled to give a negative rating: According to the voucher, the tour starts at 08:30 at the hotel. Arrived at 08:25 we were snapped directly by the guide "Annette" (German), that we would have to be there at 08:20. She was loud and was totally rude, a welcome was missing. (Later it turned out that the same happened to our company which previously entered). After we have pointed out to her friendly, that our voucher is 08:30 she was just more soggy and impolite. Even during the tour, she began without any behavior over again and became offensive. This had nothing to do with friendliness and certainly nothing to do with customer service. During the tour the guide stuttered again and again every few seconds with an "um" or "ääääh". The route itself was ok, passed many sights and lasted exactly 3 hours. Afterwards we wanted as booked on the Eureka tower. Despite the confirmation on the voucher, it took an eternity and several phone calls until it had turned out that we actually booked it.
In summary, the route guidance was in order, but the behavior of the guide completely wrong and unacceptable. Clear non-recommendation!

On behalf of everyone at OceaniaTours, I am sorry to read you did not enjoy your Melbourne City Tour with us. I have investigated all concerns raised within your feedback and can assure you that you were hosted by one of our most experienced guides who regularly receives outstanding reviews from our passengers. Upon further investigation, I can confirm this tour did indeed get off to a challenging start. The official start time of this tour is 8.30am however with a number of passengers staying at different locations throughout the city, hotel pick up times are arranged prior to this start time. This ensures we have everyone on board and the tour is commenced by 8.30am. I can see that your dedicated pick up time was scheduled for 8.20am as advised on the booking confirmation provided by our reservations team on the 1st of July 2019. I do apologise if this was unclear and if you feel our guide displayed a demeanour that you found unwelcoming. All feedback assists us to review our operation and in an attempt to ensure we continue to provide the very best customer experience, I will be taking time to review all training policies to ensure our guides are better equipped to handle this situation, should it ever occur again. In response to your concerns relating to your expectation that a Eureka entry ticket was included in the tour, I can advise that this ticket is not included in our standard city tour and I apologise for the error in translation on your confirmation. Unfortunately I have not been able to derive an explanation for how this has inadvertently ended up in the German translation on your confirmation however I have been personally liaising with your booking agent to ensure this is corrected for their future customers. Our guides do need to seek approval to offer complimentary services which can take a little time to resolve. In this instance Eureka tickets were approved by myself and provided to you at no additional cost, and for this, I am proud to have been able to personally assist in meeting your expectation. On behalf of everyone at Oceania Tours, I would like to convey my appreciation for your patience with the challenges you experienced during your tour and I thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. I wish you all the best for your onward journey and hope we will have the opportunity to look after you again when you are next in Melbourne.
