Itinerary

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)

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Please meet in front of 707 Collins Street. I will wait for you there and we can walk a short distance together to the bikes.

Or, by arrangement.

End location: Same as start location.

Duration: 4 hours 30 min.

Saturdays and Sundays by arrangement only.

Transportation

On this tour, your mode of transport is a bicycle.
It is a sturdy, well-maintained bicycle, designed for people over 5 feet tall. Price is based on 2 guests. If you have more than 2 people in your group, I can write a customised tour contract for you and each additional guest is A$100. If you are not looking for a cycle tour, please look at my other tour - Melbourne By Car and Tram. Thank you.
