“Wonderful way to see Melbourne”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

My girlfriend and I were in Melbourne on Thursday, March 7, 2013 as part of an Australia-to-NZ cruise. We were only in town for the day, so we wanted to see as much as possible, up close, in the short time we had. Michelle's Melbourne By Bike was the perfect choice; an absolutely wonderful way to see the city. Michelle seems to know the city inside and out. Her passion for Melbourne quickly became evident as she shared the history (and personal stories) of so many of the city's facinating neighbourhoods. I really can't imagine a better way to tour Melbourne. It was such a pleasure spending the day with Michelle (and Ralph). Highly recommended!

“Amazing day in the city of Melbourne”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I had four overseas visitors from the USA travelling on a cruise ship which would dock for the day in Melbourne, Australia.

I booked Michelle Brown to organise a tour for that day - Monday 11th March, Labour day - a challenging day as the Moomba festival was on and the temperature was 36degrees.

Michelle gave an excellent overview of this wonderful city.

She was very knowledgeable, informative, creative, enthusiastic, interesting, attentive, caring - in fact she was faultless.

All five of us were unanimous in our appreciation of a truly magical day and could not have wished for a better guide.

“A new perspective on a city”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I was given the tour with Michelle and even though I'm a Melbourne local, I was surprised how many 'new' sights and places I was shown and taken to. By the time we finished our mostly leisurely ride (I could have done without the uphill bits, although the views at the top were worth it), I was thrilled to realise I'd had a tour equal to the best I'd undertaken anywhere on my travels. Michelle's enthusiasm, care and focus on her bike riders was very professional.
Highly recommended for a great perspective on the city!

“Melbourne By Bike - Fantastic”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

My partner and I chose a tour of Melbourne by Bike, with Michelle. Neither of us were familiar with the city, so we wanted to have a good look around, to build a knowledge base for future trips. Our tour was fantastic. We went north, south, east, west and central. We had a bird's eye (cyclist's) view of the famous, the small, the artistic, the gardens, the history, the architecture, the people, the food, the markets, the alleyways, the bars cafes and bistros, the cinemas, the hidden treasures....I cannot think of what we did not see or learn about. Michelle is an intelligent, caring, informed and articulate ambassador of Melbourne, and took my health concerns into account throughout our day. We were given safety briefings, looked after the whole way, and also given much much more than we ever expected. I highly recommend Michelle's Melbourne By Bike Tours, I highly recommend Michelle. :)

“Brilliant day in Melbourne”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

From start to finish, this tour is very well organised safe and informative. Michelle was a great guide who loves her city and it showed! We were a group of six average age 65 of varying fitness levels, but she made it very easy for us all, by going that extra mile! We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the real Melbourne.
