The Melbourne Visitor Shuttle was a great way to see the city. I don't know why it has now stopped, but we used it on several of our visits to Melbourne and it was fantastic.

Value for money way to see other areas of Melbourne City not covered by the Inner Circle tram. Commentary on points of interest during 90 min.trip. $10.00 ticket is good for 2 days with hop on-hop off feature.

Yes , circle tram was free but for me who had 1 kid together was not comfortable . This bus had 2 routes or 2 loops . I bought the tickets from the machine in front of the cathedral at Federal Square . Easy to buy but accepted credit card only . Because the route was like a loop , so there will not have bus passing by at the opposite side of the road . That means if you want to board the bus at Fed Square , you have to buy tickets and wait for the bus in front of the cathedral only . The tickets will be valid for 2 consecutive days .

Wow what a gem this is. A 90 minute hop on hop off journey around Melbourne for 2 days for only $10!! This would have to be the cheapest (besides the free city circle tram in Melbourne) sightseeing tour in the world. It stops at 13 key locations around Melbourne from the Shrine/Royal Botanic Gardens all the way to Docklands. You can get off and on as you would expect and there is recorded commentary as well as commentary from the driver(s), who give an extra flavour to the experience. I think this is a great initiative from the 'most liveable city on the world' and really highlights everything Melbourne has to offer as well as giving an insight into the history of the city. A definite recommend.
