City sightseeing Melbourne with Great Private Tours takes in the iconic sights and scenes of this vibrant city.
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.
Note that our 1/2 day tour can only be booked in combination with one of our other tours.
Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria – one of the southern states of Australia.
“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.
Booked a small group lux tour through Steve and had the pleasure of Matt's company for the day. Fantasitc tour that caters well for a small group who doesn't want to share the bus. Premium Wine tastings, a great lunch and a pick up from our home address all included, making for a fantastic day. Will definitely recommend to friends and book again for any future experiences.
We have recently completed tours with Steve of Great Private Tours in Southern Tasmania. The tours were fascinating and something not to be missed. Steve was extremely attentive to our comfort and customised our itineraries according to our needs. As my husband has mobility issues, Steve arranged a walking frame to help him move around. It was a touching gesture indeed. Steve is highly knowledgeable, very interested in all aspects of the tours, and he loves what he does. We have used many private tours in Europe, which we enjoyed very much, but this one was exceptional. We highly recommend the Great Private Tours as it provides a memorable experience.

My husband, daughter and I booked a private day trip to the Great Ocean Road with Great Private Tours. Our experience from booking the trip to the actual trip was excellent. Steve who arranged for the trip was so prompt in answering my questions and had very good suggestions to make the trip a good one for my family. The whole booking process was fast and easy. The tour was of course even better. We had a great time, thanks to our tour guide Darren. He was on time to pick us up and ensured we were comfortable throughout the long journey. Darren was knowledgeable about the various locations we visited and was a great conversationalist. My family and I enjoyed the trip immensely! Should I decide to go on another short trip, I would certainly choose Great Private Tours.
My family and I had a great fun time with Steve. He was an excellent tour guide who knows what he’s doing. He professionally worked with us to develop the tour plan before our trip. He recommended activities to do, places to visits, and importantly great places to dines. All turned out great and we all loved it. During the trip, he provided several historical info as well as fun tales. We will do the seaplane tour next time when we visit Melbourne.
Two friends, my husband and I did a private wine tour to the Yarra Vally which was fabulous. Steve organised everything, even squeezing in an extra last minute tasting. His communication was great and he listened to and arranged an itinerary which was perfect.
We couldn’t rate this company any higher. Steve was fantastic to deal with and the communication was excellent. Mathew the driver made the trip even more enjoyable. The car was immaculate and the day at the wineries and lunch could not have been better. The best in Melbourne!
My partner and I did the fly drive dine. Both Brett (pilot) and Steve (tour guide) were absolutely wonderful. So friendly and both helped make the day special whilst also relaxing. The seaplane gave us gorgeous views of the bay and then being met on the beach with champagne was special. Steve had lots of knowledge on the area and wine and really helped to give us a great day out, taking us to 4 fabulous places on the bellarine peninsula. Steve was flexible and happy to plan a day around what we wanted & had great communication in the lead up to the day. Would definitely recommend.
We did the Vegan Winery tour and had the most fantastic time! It was great value for money and we enjoyed beautiful wines and delicious platters for lunch. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone, and am certainly keen to go back and do it all again one day myself!
A really fun and interesting day winery touring hosted by Steve. He knows a lot about the Red Hill area and his way around. It was so relaxing to be driven from winery to winery in style and safely. Steve is a great communicator and helped us set up a fantastic day. We had a blast and can’t wait to do it again.
Great day touring the Yarra Valley wineries. Steven is a friendly, knowledgeable host - gave us interesting insights and facts about the area and wineries, but also left us to enjoy and discover on our own just the right amount. The whole day ran smoothly and to schedule without ever seeming rushed. Recommend!
