I am passionate about the country, and the city I have chosen to live in, and wish to share it with you, the visitors.
For many years I have been taking friends, family and visitors on voyages of discovery around Melbourne .
My visitors are always impressed, and most appreciative of the knowledge that I have absorbed of my adopted city, Melbourne.
My single most important qualification is a hard earned and well deserved,
QBE . . Qualified by experience
This has enabled me to make my different tours, interesting, informative and excellent value.
While I can, and do take clients on the usual " same old same old", I like to show the real sites of Melbourne, not only the "touristy "places.
How the locals live; what the locals like to see and do.
We can explore the lively markets, the sumptuous mansions, the shopping malls and walk in the most user-friendly and safe, Melbourne city, with its numerous heritage listed, arcades of yesteryear.
Melbourne is home to many ethnic diversities. In excess of 200 different languages are spoken in homes, English is spoken by most and 100's of different countries and cultures of origin.
Come with me as we explore one these cultures, namely the Melbourne Jewish scene.
A little-known fact is that Melbourne gave shelter to more survivors of the Holocaust, proportionally than many other countries.
These survivors have created a life and a heritage to be admired, in spite of the adversity they came from and arrived at. It wasn't easy for them , but they seized the opportunity to live again in a free country, house, feed and clothe their children and to educate them. Among the interesting memorials that we can visit is the Melbourne Holocaust museum manned by a handful of remaining survivors.
Perhaps on our tour, we are able to have a chat with a friendly survivor ?
Let us explore the schools, museums , synagogues and bakeries. Kosher eateries abound, and we can partake of their delights along the way.
Of course, we can tailor make a tour for you to suit your interests and special needs.
All it takes is a moments notice, and off we go in my panoramic sunroof car. I will collect you from your hotel, airport or port for a shore excursion. My tour with you can be four hours or eight but all are guaranteed to be a fun-filled and informative.
Looking forward to meeting, greeting and showing you around, Marvellous Melbourne voted 8 times the most liveable city in the world. We hope after your visit you agree!
My best credential is the encouragement given by friends and family to start my own tour business.
As a guide, on a recent coach tour of no less than 47 tourists from all over the world, it was overheard that I was the best tour guide they had ever had. This was said by well-traveled tourists.
If only I had taken references from them all!
My best degree is my QBE - Qualified by experience.
No restrictions other than just relax and enjoy yourself...
