“Marvellous Melbourne” was the name given to the city during the Gold Rush era of 1850 -1870. At one point in history, Melbourne had the highest number of millionaires per capita than anywhere else in the world! Melbourne started out marvellous and has continued to grow into the magnificent and sophisticated city it is today.
Melbourne boasts world-class sporting arenas, artistic laneways and arcades, numerous public sculptures, grand architectural buildings, and artisan restaurants and cafes. It’s a fashionista capital with a buzzing, friendly street atmosphere.
At Great Private Tours, we love showcasing our city and will allow you to experience it like a local Melbournian. Walk some of the famous laneways and visit the cafes, taking in the coffee aromas amid bustling traders and shoppers. We’ll show you the city’s significant landmarks and buildings, and share the rich history that has made Melbourne the most liveable city in the world for the last seven years in a row.
Our 1/2 Day Tour takes in the iconic sights and scenes of this vibrant city and can only be booked in combination with one of our other tours.
