    A great day out with a small group of people. There were only six passengers on our day tour - basically 2 groups. My Mum and myself, and a family of four. Tour host Jess did a great job of taking us to places that suited both groups, and even dropped one group off, took us somewhere else, then went back to get the other group. She did this a couple of times during the day, ensuring that both groups got to go where they had the most interest. A lovely lunch was had at The Vines. Jess is very friendly and certainly knows her way around to all the best shopping outlets. Thanks for a lovely day out.

    Tracey took us to some fabulous small outlets we would never of found. My mum and I both enjoyed the trip and got heaps of bargains! Well worth the time and money and would book on this tour again in the future.

  • Rosa

    Jess was a friendly and excellent tour guide on this shopping tour. With all the lovely restaurants in Melbourne the lunch stop could have been at a nicer place than the Vines. I was the only one that finished my meal. Having said that, I will book again.

  • Maria

    Jess definitely went out of her way to give us a great shopping experience. Our group was great too. Made some nice friends on the day. Thanks Jess. I would definitely recommend this tour.

  • Liz

    My daughter and I enjoyed our outlet shopping tour with Jess. Communication was excellent and Jess even tailored the tour to suit some of my daughter's preferences, as it was her birthday. The mini bus was great - clean and comfortable and easy to get on and off. Having no more than ten on the tour meant less time waiting for everyone to return, and more time visiting a greater number of outlets. There were bargains aplenty (depending on what you were looking for) and two pairs of boots for the price of one was a highlight! Lunch and a glass of bubbles/wine/soft drink was included in the price. I made a bad selection from the menu and should have chosen the parma or pizza which looked great. A very enjoyable day out with a great tour guide/tour hostess/ driver in Jess. Thank you!

  • Mary

    Great day. Tracey was so good and I hope to come back to Melbourne with my daughter soon and do a spring tour.
