City Sights Private Tour - Melbourne
From $520 AUD
Come with us and explore Australia’s fastest growing city built on wealth from Victoria’s goldfields in the 1850s. Melbourne’s mix of culture and history offers visitors a vibrant and diverse experience with a creative, sophisticated energy making it one of the world’s most liveable cities.
We have a fleet of 9 or 11-seater buses for your Private tour and the price is for the driver/guide and vehicle, not per person. The larger the group, the better the value.
Melbourne showcases a delightful blend of art, music, sport, food, gardens, and of course, is the coffee capital of Australia. The gold rush poured vast wealth into our city, giving rise to the name Marvellous Melbourne.
The beautifully preserved buildings of the gold rush era and Victorian age boom years, sit proudly alongside more contemporary designs like Federation Square.
Our small group private tours explore inner city neighbourhoods so you experience Melbourne’s history, architecture, gardens and places that only the locals know, and where the big coach tours can’t take you.
This world-renowned Olympic city draws huge crowds to stadiums with Grand Slam tennis at Melbourne Park, and F1 motor racing on the Albert Park Lake street circuit. The birthplace of Aussie Rules footy at Yarra Park and the MCG welcomes 100,000 passionate fans in a Coliseum-like atmosphere each September.
Test Cricket does the same in summer, whether it’s the Poms, India or the Kiwis coming out for the historic Boxing Day clash. And Flemington Racecourse becomes the epicentre of international thoroughbred racing with the Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday in November.
Melbournians embrace their multicultural heritage with many ethnic ‘eat streets’ featuring, restaurants, cafes, bars, and character-filled pubs. You can discover the oldest Chinatown outside of Asia, a Greek Precinct, Little Italy, and historic Jewish bakeries on St Kilda’s Acland Street.
On our private tour, you’ll explore Melbourne’s history, culture and see landmarks and stunning views along the Yarra, as the river winds down to Port Phillip Bay with its many beaches.
