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 see Federations Square, The National Gallery of Victoria, Ian Potter Gallery, 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. . .
We are not allowed to ride our bikes in parks in the City of Melbourne so I will point out the Royal Botanical Gardens and can only ride around it.
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. (* = too far for shore excursion)

Estimated Local Cash Needed
30 Australian Dollars - This is an absolute maximum you may pay for lunch per person. I prefer to find a less expensive local cafe to take you to, but it is up to you. If you wish to visit museums etc. I suggest it is after the tour.
