Got ripped off

Nothing to share. It was canceled and supposed to be rescheduled for Friday. Was told I would receive a confirmation email. Never received any email. Plus tried to get in contact with Viator. Still no contact.

Hidden gems in Melbourne

We discovered some great places to go, hidden amongst city buildings. We had a fantastic tour guide named Joseph who was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information on Melbourne. It was a perfect day for our tour and we thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Would recommend this tour.

Great Afternoon Exploring Vibrant Fun Hidden Bars

We had a very interesting and informative afternoon with V ! We loved the bars we went to. The drinks were yummy too. V has a wealth of information about the history of Inner City Melbourne’s early days. She particularly showed us and discussed with us how women who had no other choice set up successful businesses in order to survive.

Not much history.

Not much history but saw four interesting/boho bars. Pleasant enough guide but was a little disorganized. The last bar wasn’t even open so we had to scramble to another.
