About
While your ship's in port in Melbourne visit the highlights of the city on a private 4-hour tour with an expert guide. Your guide will accompany you to Melbourne’s shopping districts, historic neighborhoods, financial center and Victorian-era terraced homes, and share details from Melbourne’s vibrant history. As this tour is private, you can choose to spend more time at shops or cafes if you like, and stop in the places that most intrigue you.

What to expect
  • You’ll meet your private guide at Port Melbourne to begin your private tour of Melbourne. After reviewing itinerary options with your guide, you’ll decide which areas of Melbourne to visit and you’ll have the freedom to stop when and where you like. Customize the private tour to your interests or let your experienced guide take you to the city’s highlights. Melbourne offers a wealth of options for all tastes. Perhaps you’ll drive along the Yarra River to the Docklands' lively promenade with its variety of public art, cafes and restaurants. Or head into the heart of the city to see examples of Victorian-era architecture. Maybe you'll hear street musicians on Swanston Walk, or pass the elaborately decorated theaters on Spring Street and visit elegant buildings built during the 1850s gold rush such as the State Library, Town Hall, Parliament House and Treasury. Check out the neo-Gothic flourishes of St Paul’s Cathedral, shop in the stylish Block Arcade (modeled after Milan’s Galleria), or stroll along oak-lined avenues in one of the world’s finest botanic gardens: the Royal Botanical Gardens. A little outside the city center you can find the seaside charm of St Kilda, browse in the clothing boutiques along Chapel Street, or savor the Italian ambiance of Carlton. Your tour includes morning tea no matter where you decide to go. At the end of your 4-hour tour, your guide will return you to Port Melbourne. Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to Port Melbourne for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

A great introduction to Melbourne
We did a Shore excursion into the city with Martin, and only one other couple. Martin showed us lots of interesting spots and beautiful parks. Well worth doing if you stop on a cruise in Melbourne.

Quintessential tour guide
Jan 2018 • Couples
In 30+ years of traveling, I have never met a tour guide who exceeded all expectations as Fred. His enthusiasm and love for his city was infectious. Not only did he provide important and interesting information, he told us fascinating stories about what we were seeing. He was witty, entertaining and funny while educating us, gave us plenty of time to check out sites and take pictures, never hurried us, gave us water and delicious TimTams, and stayed with us over the time we had been allotted. Fred is the quintessential tour guide. By the end of the tour he was family! For anyone visiting Melbourne, ask for Fred and you will have the most enjoyable tour of your life. By Vinnie
