We had a wonderful and very informative tour of Melbourne with our guide Helmut. He was well informed about its history and we had great conversation about its present as well as a diverse range of topics. Thoroughly enjoyable!! I can't forget a truly incredible lunch at The Point at Albert Park Lake.

We were a group of 4 couples visiting from USA. We were lucky that our tour operator booked us with this outfit for two trips, the Penguins Parade and Great Ocean Road tour.

We had a wonderful private tour during our visit to Melbourne. I would definitely use Melbourne Private Tours again and would recommend it.

This is my first time to comment on trip advisor. I probably should have done this long time ago, perhaps while I was in the car of mpt (Wifi service was provided in the car).

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood 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.
