We had an amazing day with Michelle, she showed us around Melbourne and explained every single detail and well as answering all our questions with a bright smile. I can't think on a better way to see Melbourne, is really worth it. Actually if I ever go back to Melbs I'll go for another tour!!

Our tour was run by Geoff, who was friendly, knowledgable and very welcoming. The cycling was easy, with plenty of stops and most of it on either cycle paths or quiet roads. Lunch at Naked for Satan was a highlight of the trip. Highly recommended for seeing some of Melbourne's highlights.

Just go for it. You will love it. You will see parts of Melbourne from a different perspective. It is much hillier than you might believe...from the Italian area to the food and fruit market and all around with lunch in an unusual place you might not see otherwise. ...coffee too.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes, we are able to tailor the tour and take you to places you would never find without a guide. Yes everyone thinks Melbourne is flat but the bikes we use have only 3 gears, making it not at all difficult to conquer the inclines. Thanks for coming along. Loved... More

An excellent day. Geoff was very knowledgable with anecdotes and historical facts. He was enthusiastic throughout the whole route which gave an excellent overview to the city, parks, a couple of suburbs. Lunch was tasty and plentiful and the level of cycling would suit all. I always like to visit a new city by bike and this was up with... More

Thoroughly recommend this company, we had Rick as our guide. Great way of seeing Melbourne. Rick had so much knowledge and information that we wouldn't have got any other way.

It was not the most beautifull day in the world when we, three friends of Belgium started the Melbourne by bike tour. We expected a young, suntanned Aussie guy, but we were awaited by Michelle, a lovely beautifull lady.

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.
