I am passionate about Melbourne and would love to have the opportunity to pass some of my enthusiasm on to you.
I have been guiding for more than 7 years. I am a private guide that offers private tours of Melbourne.
I'd love to show you my Melbourne (Australia) and it's surrounds (I am a CITY GIRL and NOT appropriate for seeing penguins and the Great Ocean Road).
Having lived here most of my life, I often take bike tours of Melbourne but have also taken guests in a car, on a bus, on a tram and walking around Melbourne to great reviews.
I'll treat you as if you only have one day in Melbourne and need to know everything. Prior to the tour, I will ask you what you hope to get from the tour and any particular interests. If you have more days here, I'll advise you on other things you may like to do whilst here. I am happy to be available to you before or after the tour for questions or advice. I can offer you a full or half-day tour, dependant on your budget.
A Recent Review of this guide
Our tour with Michelle was wonderful. We customized our whole day with help from Michelle on the best animal sanctuary. Moonlit Sanctuary, the Australian Grand Prix track (we actually drove it!) and tour of the city were just a few of the highlights. Michelle took all our pictures and even brought a few local things to try. She truly loves her job and we could tell! Awesome tour with a true local!
