Boroughs of Melbourne - Signature Private City Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:
    Be picked up from your hotel (or met at the airport and hit the ground running +$150 AUD)
    Take to the backstreets for a coffee fix (our treat, put your wallet away) somewhere wonderfully local and get to know your personable Localing host. Share a few tastes and interests to help make the experience personal.
    Stretch your legs in Melbourne’s quirky lanes and Victorian arcades. Leaf through old books and maps, jazz records or vintage clothing. Cruise the grand boulevards, get a lay of the land, hear a few stories and meet some of our interesting and creative local mates.
    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 Little Italy for freshly whipped gelato or precision perfect pastry. Chat with the artisans and makers in kitchens, galleries and studios of Melbourne’s most colourful local boroughs.
    Head to Melbourne’s former working-class heart, where punks and gangsters once reigned. Visit micro-factories, studios and warehouses powering Melbourne’s creative economy.
    Learn about green coffee bean selection or how to temper chocolate, visit street art galleries and local milliners, admire the craftsmanship, knowledge and passion that have become the calling cards of ‘Made in Melbourne.’
    Enjoy a quick lunch at a neighbourhood cafe or slow down over first-rate fine dining. Get to know your host better, discuss local culture and how best to spend your time in Melbourne (Usually, we only have time for this on the full-day option).
    In the afternoon, the experience is tailored specifically to you – explore the culture or sporting precincts, leafy bay-side suburbs like St. Kilda, riverfront gardens, galleries or local markets and shopping precincts.
    This is a private tour so you set the pace and help dictate the focus. No two tours are exactly alike, which is why we call them 'tours for people who don't like tours'. 
    The experience concludes at 2 pm (half-day) or between 4 and 5 pm (full-day) at your hotel or an inner-city location of your choosing.

    We received an excellent private tour with Eliot. He asked our preferences and gave us a great tour! We had spent two days in Melbourne already, and Eliot took us to places we had not yet seen, and probably never would have thought about visiting....More

    We had a great tour with Rick. The tour went on for 4 hours, in which time flew. We drove thru the Rod Laver arena, the F1 track, and thru the Italian area. Also thru Chinatown and the CBD. Great tour.

    Patrick's tour of the boroughs was like a storytelling adventure. He gave us a deeper appreciation of the street art and history of Melbourne as only an artist could do. We left feeling like we were immersed in the rich culture of this fun city.
