Brilliant way to see Melbourne!
Jan 2020
Loved this sunrise tour of Melbourne and the Yarra river. Tim was a gracious and knowledgeable tour guide, who accommodated my running pace and requests (I was lucky to be the only one on this tour). It was a glorious day out there with brilliant sunlight and a slight breeze. Got to see the "G" and the "Tan," the Australian Open venue and the river, some of the street art works and we finished at a brilliant coffee place. You don't have to be a runner to do this tour, but it'll be just the right thing for runners or anybody enjoying the outdoors and being on the move to see things. Thank you, Tim and Matt - can highly recommend!

Yarra Sunrise Tour
If you're a keen runner and you want to see Melbourne by foot especially in the morning, this is the go to group to show you around the city with a passion for running and extensive knowledge around the City Of Melbourne!!! Thank you so much Matty for the solo tour on Aussie Day, I've got a bit more knowledge about the city itself but especially made another like minded runner/friend/contact for good 💜. You'll get bang for your buck I can guarantee you!!!
