"Our family (booked under: Saw Chan Hong) would like to express our appreciation and praises to the tour guides & other Grayline staffs who brought us to these respective day tours in Melbourne: Their experience, knowledge and professionali...sm really impressed us. Not only that, the warmth, care and consideration really make us at ease and we really hope to come back to Melbourne again (and Grayline of course!) if there is opportunity. For our first ever trip to Australia, we had so much fun and so many beautiful memories! It was so difficult to say good bye on our departure day on 12 Nov. (Sat.) especially for our 2 kids. Melbournians are so lucky to have such wonderful & convenient city to live in with so many natural wonders all around. Please take care & see you again :-)....and G'day Mate!!"Read full review
