About Us

Our Story

Melbourne Private Tours is a full service luxury private touring operator, inspired by a thirst to share renowned and hidden corners of Victoria. Started in 2006 by two Melbourne locals, the company was built upon a foundation of creativity and passion for travel and adventure, culinary delights, and discovering the sophistication of Melbourne and the pleasures of regional Victoria.

We offer a range of carefully crafted itineraries and also provide guests with the opportunity to fully customise their experience to suit their individual needs. Tours are suitable for individuals, families and groups. Extended adventures and incentive group touring are also available in all regions of Victoria.

Itineraries and experiences have an emphasis on touching, tasting, connecting and learning each step of the way, with the aim to exceed the expectations of the modern traveller.

The Melbourne Private Tours team work closely with their vast network of personal contacts in Melbourne and Victoria to provide guests with immersive and innovative experiences that deliver memorable ‘behind the scenes’ experiences often not available to the general public. Our guests will meet the locals; the artists, farmers, and wine makers; the artisan producers and the people who make Victoria and Australia such a fascinating destination. Let us take you beyond expectations and show you the spirit of Melbourne and Victoria.

One of our favourites - Seville Estate in the Yarra Valley, just an hour from Melbourne, features beautiful vineyard scenery amongst Aussie bushland. Not to mentioned impressive wine - the vineyard was Halliday's 2019 Yarra Valley "Dark Horse". The perfect spot for an outdoors wine tasting 👌

After you put on your waders it’s time for a dip with this cute Aussie animal.
Healesville Sanctuary is where you have the opportunity to get in the water and have a play with a platypus.

You’ll have to book in early though as these playful things are very popular.

Down a little laneway our guests set up their studio for an afternoon of street art. Armed with spray cans they created their very own works of art - an awesome souvenir of their time in Melbourne.

A cloudy early morning sailing across Melbourne. 🌇
It might be a bit chilly but seeing Melbourne’s twinkling lights as the sun comes up is really something special.

It was all smiles on tour with our guide, Darren. Our guests had a fantastic time exploring Melbourne, and they’re off to see the penguins tonight.

When the clouds roll in you have the entire beach to yourself. There are hikes and beach walks all across the Mornington Peninsula and we love to do them, rain, hail or shine. ☔️☀️ #melbournprivatetours #morningtonpeninsula #visitvictoria #privatetour ...
