Loved my tour

I had the most wonderful guide Dillon who picked me up at my hotel. Loved my guided tour of Phillip Island. The Fairy penguin parade is a memory that I will treasure forever.

Dylan was an amazing guide throughout the Great Ocean Road tour. He worked hard to understand what we were looking for and adapted the trip to our tastes. :)

We did extensive research to find the right private tour to experience a full day in Yarra Valley. Melbourne Private tours seemed like a perfect match. The sample itinerary was exactly what we were looking for. While the price was quite steep ($2000 for 5 people for 8 hours) the idea of having a private tour just for us in... More

We had three amazing days in Melbourne with our guide Jeff. He was fun to be with, had lots of interesting information and he was able to customize our tour to our interests. We started with a trip down the Great Ocean Road. We stopped for breakfast and a walk by the lighthouse, followed by a scenic drive with stops... More

We enjoyed a marvelous day along the Great Ocean Road with the perfect guide, Katie. A local to the area, Katie was an incredible resource. Her knowledge of everything Australian can not be overstated. More than her knowledge, Kaite distinguishes herself with a relentlessly positive attitude and ability to be flexible and make good decisions. She was the perfect companion... More

I did enjoy two day tours with MPT last weekend. Really worth it if you want to get a good taste of Melbourne and surroundings. I did the Great Ocean Road tour with Helmut and the Daylesford day tour with Brendan. Both great and knowledgeable! The Great Ocean Road is obviously a must. I would even more recommend the two-day... More

We enjoyed a private day long tour of Great Ocean Road with Jeff as our guide. The scenery is magnificent, exceeding the Oregon Coast for those familiar with that area. Jeff was a fantastic guide and we truly enjoyed spending the day with him as much as the incredible scenery he took us to. He also saved our trip when... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
