"It was the best free or paid tour I have ever been on. John was funny, highly entertaining, adaptive, and informative about Australia in general and Melbourne specifically. He was able to give us honest recommendations about things to do in the city. There was no pressure to tip the tour guide but he well deserved it." - Kenz1996 (TripAdvisor review, Aug 2018)
