Michelle was fantastic. She has an in-depth knowledge of the Jewish community and took us inside a synagogue, museum and many stores. We also learned so much about the city of Melbourne in addition to the Jewish community. Thank you Michelle.

Michelle did a wonderful job showing us 'her' city. We discovered so many hidden places that we would never have discovered on our own. She is so full of energy and information, keeping the whole tour interesting. Although we had to do a shortened version of our original tour, she absolutely did her best to include as much as possible. We are very satisfied and fell in love with Melbourne - due to Michelle!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Debra, thanks for taking the time to review your tour with me. Glad you enjoyed. I was one minute late for bus transport to concert but luckily driver called us and then waited. It rained lightly throughout concert and it wasn't cancelled thankfully. Hope your holiday is continuing nicely. Sending good wishes to you both always, michelle :)

Meeting Michelle was like meeting a family friend who wanted to show you her "hometown." From the moment we met Michelle until our last goodbye (we counted six!), everything was perfect. Her enthusiasm for Melbourne was infectious. Her knowledge was expansive. And her kindness was endearing. She was committed to showing us her "Secret Melbourne." My wife and I really felt like family after just a few short hours. I only hope that Michelle will visit us in the states one day so that we can return the favor

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to review our time together and for the kind words you have written. It was such a pleasure to meet you both and share Melbourne with you. Best wishes always until we meet again :) x

I was lucky enough to have chosen Michelle B for 3 tours! Just brilliant - navigator, historian, communicator. What fun and memorable experiences. She gave me an understanding of what is like to be Jewish now in Melbourne as well the historical background. I edited a beautiful Orthodox historic synagogue where one of the 1st rabbis wore a cleric's collar- like s priest. They were like British then and were called Reverend. We went to shops where Moms were preparing for Sabbath and a kids' bookstore. Fab

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a pleasure it was to meet you Barbara. I had such a fun time with you that I didn't want to say bye - even when you lost your voice! Hope the remainder of your trip continued well? Thank you for leaving a review and best wishes always xxx

Michelle B., my tour guide in Melbourne, was absolutely the BEST guide I have had- and I have traveled to 48 countries. Hidden gems, willing to customize the very day when we felt time could be better spent, insuring comfort understanding the new city. Excellent communicator! Went out of her way planning what I wanted to experience in Melbourne and surroundings. What a super choice!

Fantastic city tour with Michelle! She is very passionate about her city and it shows. She starts the tour by asking your interests and then taylors the tour to focus on them. At the end of the tour she will help you plan the rest of your stay. This tour is a wonderful way to start your trip to Melbourne. Highly recommend it!

Hands down, bar none, Michelle's tour of Melbourne was absolutely the best tour I've ever experienced!!! Myself and all 19 of my friends agreed that Michelle knows EVERYTHING there is to know about Melbourne and she's extremely passionate to share her knowledge. It was a full day tour and we left feeling like we saw most of the city in a day. We feel in love with Melbourne!!! I cannot imagine a better tour guide than Michelle! Honestly, I would have to see it to believe it. She's AWESOME in every way!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Dwana and gang, lucky you continuing to travel all this time. Hope it was all spectacular. Your trip planning was excellent so I am sure your entire trip was.

Michele was a great guide for my wife and I in Melbourne. She was punctual, met us exactly as we discussed and was extremely knowledgeable of the area. She adapted to any changes or request we made and was a gracious host. She pointed out many highlights that we would not have seen on a ship's tour all in the course of one day. We certainly appreciated our time with Michele and would highly recommend her for anyone needing a tour guide in Melbourne.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ray and Carol, Thank you for taking the time to review your tour. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with you both and show Melbourne off to you. I wish you lots of continued health and happiness always. Thank you for your lovely invite to Maine. Michelle :) x

Michelle was an amazing guide. My husband and I finished our cruise in Melbourne with another couple . Michelle met us at our hotel right on time . We set out on a 5 hour bike tour of Melbourne. We told her we loved tennis so she took us to the big Australian Open complex and to the sporting fields . We saw the different parts of the city and she provided great insight and commentary. Michelle also took lots of group photos for us. At the end of the tour she mapped out places for us to visit . Loved her !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thoroughly enjoyed showing Melbourne off to you and loved meeting you. Thank you for helping me end Melbourne By Bike on a high. Feel free to reach out today if you want any further guidance. Fun travels ahead for you all, Michelle :)

Michelle was a terrific host in the city that she cares deeply about! She accommodated several requests we made to visit specific areas of the city including a local market and a drive around the Formula One circuit at Albert Park. For a small additional charge she arranged the terrific Aboriginal guided tour and smoking ceremony at the Botanical Gardens. Do your research ahead of time and she will work with you to accommodate your interests. Thoroughly enjoyed our day, Thanks Michelle!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a pleasure to guide you both and experience Melbourne together. Best wishes always, Michelle :)

Michelle was amazing and very accommodating...my husband wasn't feeling great, and Michelle was able to gear our trip to him, without missing all the wonderful attractions that Melbourn had to offer. Would give her 10 stars if it was allowed. Thanks Michelle !!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hope Bill is feeling much better when you read this? I have sent your photos to give you some positive Melbourne memories. Really appreciate your review.

Michele is the best tour guide we have ever had. Her knowledge of Melbourne and her joy to share it is unsurpassed. She really showed us the life of the city and every important aspect of it. In one day we all got the feel of the city and its vibe. We saw its people in action. We actually fell in love with the city and would return here in a heartbeat. Michele is warm, funny and bright. Her love of Melbourne is apparent. We recommend her to anyone going to Melbourne. 5 stars is hardly enough!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! thank you for such a lovely review. It was honestly my pleasure to meet you all and be your guide for this wonderful city. Careful what you wish for. I may just drop in on you one day. Fingers crossed and best wishes always, Michelle :)

To say that this tour of Melbourne was fabuous is very true, but even that doesn't give it justice. Michelle was bright, energetic, knowledgable, and extremely interesting, and fun. She showed us so many wonderful parts and places in that beautiful city. We were picked up promptly at 9:00 AM and we didn't return until almost 7:00. It was a spectacular day. I would highly recommend Michelle as guide thru Melbourne. Marsha Turbyfill

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this review. Yours was a memorable tour. I hope the rest of your visit to Australia was memorable and you loved it. Best wishes always, Michelle :)
