I honestly don't think you could get a better experience anywhere else. This tour is unique in that it not only covers the major interests of Melbourne - and often with a unique twist or story - but also unearths some amazing little gems that even the locals don't know are there! Michelle clearly puts her heart and soul into... More

A fantastic way to explore beautiful Melbourne. Geoff, our energetic and very knowledgeable guide, showed me nooks and crannies of the city and surroundings I'd never been to - and I've lived here for 25 years! We cruised around and got the best views of the city, learned about the history and architecture, discovered great places to eat and drink,... More

I cant speak highly enough for this tour and the day I had with Jeff and the team. I live in Melbourne and did this tour with a couple of friends visiting from interstate. I had no idea how much Melbourne has to over, and was consistently blown away by the history and 'hidden gems' shown to us during the... More

Geoff was a fantastic tour guide possibility one of the best I've come across, he showed us places that conventional tours would not take... More

I'm in my 20s and I've lived in Melbourne my whole life. I was blown away by the amount of new information I learnt on this bike tour! From Melbourne's fascinating historical landmarks and individuals who made Melbourne what it is today, to cultural and entertainment hotspots, including iconic bars and restaurants that I will definitely be frequenting from now...

I did this tour with four teenagers, while not feeling super great, and Michelle made the experience memorable and terrific. She tailors the experience to what she thinks you will like (or what you want to see, if you are have ideas of your own). We saw the graffiti walls, river, sports areas, and different neighborhoods of Melbourne. All of... More

My wife enjoyed the extensive tour of Melbourne. We visited a wide range of interesting places and our guide Jeff gave us good information of all the sites we visited. We found the parks were lovely and would have liked even more time in them. We had to take care in busy areas but we coped easily and physically managed... 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.
