I did the booking from Sydney was so seamless and the entire process was very smooth. We were a family of 4 adults and a child 5yrs old, Darren was easy to coordinate with and gave me the pick up time. We were picked by Simon from our hotel and he gave us an amazing experience of the entire tour. We took the mornington peninsula tour aswell the next day and it was brilliant.Simon explained every little detail throughout the way and was great company.He kept my child entertained aswell. Even today my child asks me about Simon. Highly recommend MPT for future tours.

Enjoyable day at the Great Ocean road with a good mix of scenery, and insightful commentary on local history and wildlife (including spotting Echidnas and a tiger snake!). Simon was an easy going, knowledgeable and insightful guide. Thanks for a nice day!

Our cruise ended in Melbourne and we had decided to stay there for a few days along with 3 other couples we were traveling with. Friends of ours had recommended Melbourne Private Tours and we are so glad they did. We booked 2 tours with them. The first was a city tour for the day we arrived. Dylan was our guide and he was terrific! He is very knowledgeable, has a great sense of humor and made for a very fun day. We went to the Botanic Gardens and Shrine of Remembrance, cottages on the beach and saw lots of street art. Dylan also made sure we had plenty of time to explore the market. When we booked the tour we asked if it could include Jewish sites but since it was Saturday we were told we would only be able to see them from the outside. But Dylan and MPT went the extra mile and made arrangements with the synagogue so that we could visit towards the end of services. The synagogue was beautiful and the Rabbi and congregation were so welcoming and we were so moved, it is the most memorable experience of our trip. The next day we did the Great Ocean Road tour to the 12 Apostles. It was a 13 hour day and it was terrific. Our guide for this tour was Neil and he was great. He took us all along the coastal road where we saw amazing views and lots of surfers. We stopped at a wonderful coffee shop with delicious pastries. But I recommend not eating too much at the coffee shop because you don’t want to spoil your appetite for the fabulous lunch that comes a few hours later. Lunch was family style and the food was ready when we got there. It was so good we asked to meet the chef so that we could applaud him and his wonderful staff. Along the way Neil stopped at a few different locations so that we could see kangaroo, koalas and birds up close in the wild. Neil got a crimson rosella to sit on my husband’s hand and we got great pictures of a kookaburra. The 12 Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge were amazingly beautiful and as an extra treat we saw an Echidna in the bushes. We had a fabulous time.

Jamie at Melbourne Private Tours arranged an amazing Tour of the 12 Apostles + a helicopter flight at really short notice. Jamie was so friendly and a pleasure to deal with,. The Tour Host on the day who also lovely and managed to settle some nerves of a few who were a little anxious about the helicopter ride! The food and service was great, we would definitely use MPT again.

Simply...great! We are at end of a 3 week Australia vacation and the last few days in Melbourne have been great....much of that thanks to our incredible guide, Garth. We did a half day city morning tour with him first.....his knowledge and mix of driving and walking was perfect. The following day we did the 12 Apostles - Great Ocean Road with Garth again.Part of this was supposed to be by helicopter however the weather did not co-operate for the helicopter portion.....we are glad it didn’t, as the additional time in the car with Garth was full of more great information details - flora;fauna;history plus lovely FYI,,Garth is a world of knowledge and made our visit to Melbourne so memorable......MPT has very comfortable vehicles and wonderful staff.
