Your special interests can be catered for with advance notice. 3 hour tour recommended.

This is so flexible. I like to give an overview of Melbourne's personality - it's coffee, cafe, sporting, arts and history.
Dependent on where the tour begins, we can drive through non-tourist areas of Melbourne and visit the Brighton bathing boxes. Then we can drive towards downtown Melbourne to see the Royal Botanical Gardens, Federation Square, The National Gallery of Victoria, The Shrine of Remembrance, Old Treasury Building, Parliament House, famous laneways and arcades, Brunswick St in Fitzroy, Lygon St (Little Italy) in Carlton, The Melbourne Museum, The Royal Exhibition Buildings (World UNESCO site), and the Queen Victoria Market (closed Mon & Wed). Lots more. . .

All of the above mentioned places can be pointed out to you for you to explore in more detail at a later time. If you have a very limited time in Melbourne, I don't mind if we go in some places, but it will be at the expense of seeing other things & additional charges may apply for you.

This tour is very comprehensive
