What you’ll do

If you are stopping over in Melbourne for just a short time, why not make the most of your adventure and spend it with a local who can show you the sights? This personalised experience with one of our hosts will be like exploring Melbourne with a friend and, while you may not be able to see the entire city in just a few hours, you can still gain an authentic and engaging impression while forming loads of new memories (and snapping tons of pics for IG!). Your host will be there to help you actualise any experience you’ve dreamt of in Melbourne. You could visit the iconic sights like Fitzroy Gardens, the architecturally iconic Melbourne Train Station or browse the dozens of unique and quirky eateries and coffee shops lining the lively city streets. Perhaps you would like to visit a local market where you can pick up fresh fruit and vegetables, preloved treasures and streetfood or check out the city's colourful street art? And if you get hungry you could always wander into a local eatery for an authentic taste of Melbourne, or sit down to chat with your host over a cuppa at a hip and trendy cafe. Melbourne caters for everyone and the opportunities to embrace its beauty, culture and heritage are everywhere - you just need to know where to look.

Great walking tour of Melbourne with Chris

Chris was very open to doing what we wanted. In our case coming from out of the country, he asked for our interests before we ever arrived and designed a walking tour for us!

Personalized Melbourne, Australia Walking Tour with Chris

Our tour host, Chris, conveniently and promptly met my husband and I at our hotel lobby. We did not receive an introductory email which Chris sent...no worries.....he conducted an impromptu interest survey before we "rolled." Based on our responses and my mobility limitation (I use a manual wheelchair pushed by my husband), Chris guided us around older, as well as, trendy areas of attraction around Melbourne. He provided historical, unique, and curious information about the sites. Admirably, Chris knew the location of public lifts to access different street levels by the Yarra River. We were pleased that Chris did not insist on a set route, rather, prioritized our likes and needs. Chris's varied life experiences initiated fun conversations on a number of topics. Overall, an enjoyable private tour of Melbourne with a knowledgeable, personable and friendly host.
