Melbourne Private Tours offers a range of carefully crafted itineraries and also provides 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 is 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.
Josh, Suze and 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.
