Melbourne Tours

Tours are a perfect way to experience Melbourne and the surrounding region, with a variety of day trips and tour packages on offer; including motorbike tours, boat cruises, eco tours, hot air balloon tours and so much more.

No matter your taste, there are many tours to choose from. Depending on your sense of adventure, tours range from an hour, whole days, to overnight and even multiple days.

Melbourne Day, City, Walking, Food & Wine Tours

The most popular tours are often the city sightseeing tours. Many tour operators offer full-day bus tours, self-guided hop-on and hop-off tours, walking tours and even private motor-coach tours. All you need to do is book ahead and start your city sightseeing in the morning.

For a truly unique way to see Melbourne, why not try a horse carriage tour? Typically, the rides last between half an hour and two hours, depending on your booking and most carriages seat between 2-8 people. A longer tour will give you plenty of time to check out a range of Melbourne sites including the Yarra River, the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Shrine of Remembrance, the Arts Centre, Federation Square, St. Patricks Cathedral, Houses of Parliament, Fitzroy Gardens, China Town and the iconic Flinders Street station.

Hot air balloons provide an excellent way to take in the sights from the CBD or the beautiful Yarra Valley wine region.

For those with a larger sense of adventure, a motorbike tour might be just the thing. Two-hour guided tours of the great ocean road and Phillip Island which give visitors a close up view of the magnificent coast line. Experience breathtaking views and invigorating thrills as you traverse mountain trails on trike motorcycles.

For those who want to get out on the water, try one of the many day or night cruises on the Yarra River or Port Phillip Bay. There are so many tours to choose from, so check out the links below!
