Tour description provided by Viator

See marvelous Melbourne your way on a private tour of the city. Your private guide will take you to Melbourne’s shopping arcades, historic enclaves, financial center and Victorian-era terraces, and shine a light on the history behind Melbourne’s vibrant streetscapes. Because this is a private tour, it’s your choice to spend longer at cafes or shops if you wish, and visit the places you’ve always wanted to see.

It’s up to you to decide which part of Melbourne you’d like to discover, with the freedom to choose when and where to stop. Tailor the private tour to suit your interests on the day, or let your expert guide show you the area’s highlights. You can follow the Yarra River to the Docklands' cafe precinct on Port Phillip bay, or discover Melbourne’s rich variety of Victorian architecture in the heart of the city.

Watch street musicians on Swanston Walk, see the elaborate theaters of Spring Street and visit the grand buildings built from the wealth of the 1850s gold rush, including the Town Hall, State Library, Parliament House and Treasury buildings. You might like to visit the neo-Gothic St Paul’s Cathedral, shop in the glorious Block Arcade, modeled on Milan’s Galleria, or take a stroll through oak-lined avenues in the Victorian-era botanical gardens.

Heading further afield, take a walk on the beach at St Kilda, browse the clothing boutiques of Chapel Street, or enjoy the Italian atmosphere of Carlton. Wherever you end up visiting, the tour includes a stop for morning tea.
