Luxury Melbourne City: Private Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your expert guide and luxurious vehicle at your nominated Melbourne hotel or address before setting off on your private 5 or 6 hour tour. 

    Explore downtown Melbourne, teeming with exciting cafes, bars and restaurants. Uncover the hidden laneway gems where you can grab a latte, cocktail, or a unique design piece from one of the city’s many stylish boutiques. Take in the vivid street art brightening every alley.

    Marvel at architectural brilliance, from the historic landmarks of Flinders Street Station and the Royal Exhibition Building to the thoroughly modern statement of Federation Square on the banks of the Yarra River. Food lovers will leap on the seasonal produce offered at thriving Queen Victoria Market.

    Refresh with a stroll around the superb Royal Botanic Gardens and pay your respects at the Shrine of Remembrance, commanding spectacular 360-degree views of the city. Sport-lovers will relish a visit to the MCG, home to both the cricket and Aussie Rules football.

    Dive headlong into the bohemian retreat that is seaside St Kilda, with the thrill rides of Luna Park and the stunning views of the city across the water. And then there are the colourful bathing boxes of Brighton Beach, like a classic postcard brought to life.

    Whatever you decide, your Guide will be right there with you, guiding you through the very best of Melbourne’s diverse riches.

    What a pleasure! We learned a lot from the super thoughtful guide/owner Stu. The stops and journey were carefully planned, and did not feel calculated. Stu took great photos (later sent via Dropbox), so we didn't feel any pressure to document everything ourselves - and...More
