Great tour. I had my daughter with me from the UK and it was good to see another side of Melbourne. Kel was great throughout and would certainly recommend a tour with him

We did this tour in February 2020. We originally scheduled it for the 10th but one of our party took unwell and Kel went out of his way to help rearrange our tour for the 13th, once our group were fully fit. Kel and Mel were great hosts, sharing a lot of information and making us feel very welcome. By the end of the tour, I felt I'd seen a lot, had a great afternoon out and had made two new friends. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Melbourne.

My first trip to Australia couldn't have started in a better way... Melbourne, was the first city I visited. On the first day I did the Melbourne Sporting Icons and the Bayside, our guide Kel was a delight, he was on time, the mini ban was brand new and very comfortable. He gave us a great tour around the sport facilities and explained the history of them, we drove on the race track of the Melbourne grand prix, then we walked around St.Kilda's Central Business District. also drove around the beautiful neighborhoods & also went to see the Brighton Bathing Boxes which was fun.... and finally we went to the South Melbourne Market which was great, we had coffee and was able to spend time talking to Kel about the country and the city of Melbourne. kel was very informative, very friendly and caring. He wanted to make sure we had a good experience and we sure did. I would highly recommend them. My experience was absolutely a pleasure.
