Tour description provided by Viator

While your ship's in port in Melbourne visit the highlights of the city on a private 4-hour tour with an expert guide. Your guide will accompany you to Melbourne’s shopping districts, historic neighborhoods, financial center and Victorian-era terraced homes, and share details from Melbourne’s vibrant history. As this tour is private, you can choose to spend more time at shops or cafes if you like, and stop in the places that most intrigue you.

You’ll meet your private guide at Port Melbourne to begin your private tour of Melbourne. After reviewing itinerary options with your guide, you’ll decide which areas of Melbourne to visit and you’ll have the freedom to stop when and where you like. Customize the private tour to your interests or let your experienced guide take you to the city’s highlights.

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.
