    Thank you Chris. It was a good pace and very informative indeed. We loved our time with you and certainly gave us exactly what was needed on arrival to Melbourne.

    My husband and I recently did a full day tour with Sebastien as our guide. This was the first "private" tour we have done and it won't be the last! I was able to send Sebastien a 2 page list of places we were interested in seeing - he was then able to work up a tentative route ahead of time. We ticked every item but one off the list!! We did a lot of walking, heard a lot of interesting historical facts and stories and got several suggestions of other interesting places to visit in Melbourne. I would take another tour with City Unscripted again!

    Our guide met us at the port. Guided us into the city. Then took us on a 3 hr tour slow and easy as he gave us wonderful insights into Melbourne. We really learned a lot and had plenty of time.
