I would like to add my commendations to Melbourne Private Tours. I arranged an afternoon of touring in the beautiful Yarra Valley as part of a corporate event for 10 staff. Paul provided unsurpassed customer service during the initial planning and carefully tailored an itinerary that proved to be perfect for our group. I was impressed how he took the... More

Thank you Kate for the tour of the Yarra Valley in style and comfort in the Mercedes Van which accommodated 10 of us easily. Kate made everything too easy and we visited lovely wineries and a chocolatier with class. Highly recommended!

Many thanks to Josh Oakes for his wonderful client relations and to Neil Allan for the superb tour of the Great Ocean Road. Neil's knowledge of the history, geography and wildlife of the area was excellent as was his sharp eye: aside from snakes and kangaroos, he even spotted an echidna at the side of the road. I highly recommend... More

If you get a chance, you should absolutely request Kate to be your tour guide. We spent almost two full days with her and she is extremely knowledgable and great fun to spend this time with! She brought us all over the city and combined indoor, outdoor, and walking - which is something my husband and I love to do,... More

My brand new husband and I selected MPT for a full day tour while visiting on our honeymoon. We only had one full day to get in as much of the sites as possible. Our day with Peter was jammed packed but we'll worth it!! From the moment he picked us up in his van we felt comfortable and relaxed.... More

Not only was it easy to book this tour while still in the states, I appreciated Paul's ability to customize the tour to the Yarra Valley and Healesville Sanctuary. I think my request was not the norm as I specifically wanted to interact with Dingos, and Paul made it happen. Our guide, Jeff, was great. He was knowledgeable, kind and... More

Kate Storr, our tour guide,was wonderful and definitely knowledgeable of all sites. Started out doing a culinary tour with Kate & Allan which I highly recommend. 2nd day Kate took us on the great ocean coastline drive, then we flew over the 12 Apostles. I would definite recommend this tour, especially if your time in Melbourne is short.

We had a great day tour to the Yarra Valley with MPT. The day was well planned out and we never felt rushed. John was very informative and was very good with the four young adults we had with us. Our lunch at Tarra Warra winery as part of the tour was amazing.
