Melbourne Shore Excursion: Private City Tour
Melbourne offers a wealth of options for all tastes. Perhaps you’ll drive along the Yarra River to the Docklands' lively promenade with its variety of public art, cafes and restaurants. Or head into the heart of the city to see examples of Victorian-era architecture. Maybe you'll hear street musicians on Swanston Walk, or pass the elaborately decorated theaters on Spring Street and visit elegant buildings built during the 1850s gold rush such as the State Library, Town Hall, Parliament House and Treasury. Check out the neo-Gothic flourishes of St Paul’s Cathedral, shop in the stylish Block Arcade (modeled after Milan’s Galleria), or stroll along oak-lined avenues in one of the world’s finest botanic gardens: the Royal Botanical Gardens.
A little outside the city center you can find the seaside charm of St Kilda, browse in the clothing boutiques along Chapel Street, or savor the Italian ambiance of Carlton. Your tour includes morning tea no matter where you decide to go.
At the end of your 4-hour tour, your guide will return you to Port Melbourne.

Our tour guide, Fred, did a great job and covered more than what was required. He added on and tour lasted at least an hour over the time allotted. It was a good tour. The only thing I wish we had more time was at the Queen Victoria Market. We were given about 15 minutes and told we could be dropped off there at the end of the tour. The tour lasted so long that we did not get to go back to it.
Our guide, Bruce, met us exactly as instructed at the pier. We had a private tour for 8 people and seem to have hit all the highlights in the allotted 4 hours. Bruce was very informative and very professional. I would gladly recommend him to others.
The tour guide was great. We got to see alot of Melbourne and walk around some of the downtown area.
It was very good.
