Magnificent, magnetic Melbourne - what an incredible place! You’ll join one of our local Melbourne hosts, a fun and passionate local (as they all are), as they show you their cosmopolitan city in a bespoke experience tailored just for you!

Exploring a new place should never feel intimidating, and with your host by your side, it never will. Orientate yourself among the enchanting street art, vibrant laneways and arcades as you wander the lively streets lined with dozens of hip cafes and eateries, familiarising yourself with the many faces and stories of the city.

Choose your transport; do you feel like walking to map our the city in your head a little or would you like to take the opportunity to get to grips with the tram network? (It’s excellent though, you’ll be cruising like a local in no time).

Ask the 101 questions we know you’ve been dying to ask as you get to grips with the ins and outs of life in Melbourne, and you’ll feel right at home in no time at all.

    • Familiarise yourself with Melbourne and the best ways to navigate around the city
    • Visit some of the city's iconic spaces, neighbourhoods and buildings
    • Take the experience at whatever pace suits you - be it a leisurely stroll through the tangles of alleyways rich in street art, or squeezing in as much as possible
    • Walk the streets with a local - you’ll be surprised at how much faster you feel at home - and get to grips with everything from the tram network to the Aussie slang
    • Ask any and all questions you have about the city, and let your host recommend things they think you’ll love to do during the rest of your trip
    • This experience will be personalized to you!
