Boroughs of Melbourne – Private Day Tour

Duration: 6-7 hours
No. of Guests: 1-10
Languages: Available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, French, German & Italian (others by request)

Go behind the scenes and beyond the tourist trail to experience Melbourne in a way most locals never see. This extended experience lets you delve deeper and go further into local life and creative culture.  Meet Melburnians, soak in the passion, coast through all the cool neighbourhoods. Have a grand old day with a fab host in a great city doing all the things you love.

Take to the backstreets for a coffee somewhere local and share a few interests with your host to make the experience personal. Discover Melbourne’s passionate entrepreneurs at the heart of the city’s local ‘laneway culture’. Leaf through old books and maps, jazz records or vintage clothing. Sample local treats and native flavours. Hear the tales of a strange, off-beat city of radicals, prospectors, and adventurers who all wound up together in this far-flung corner of the world. Head to Melbourne’s former working-class heart, where punks and gangsters once reigned.
