Calling all comfort-loving adventurers! Melbourne Private Tours is a full-service luxury private touring operator which takes you into the nooks and crannies of Melbourne and regional Victoria to discover the hidden gems of this beautiful and diverse state. Founded in 2006 by two local Melbournites, the company exudes local knowledge on their indulgent travel and culinary experiences.
Offering a range of carefully crafted itineraries as well as fully customisable experiences to suit every individual, family and group, Melbourne Private Tours’ itineraries and experiences place an emphasis on touching, tasting, connecting and learning. Working closely with their extensive network of personal contacts in Victoria to provide guests with immersive and innovative experiences, Melbourne Private Tours aim to exceed travellers’ expectations by giving them a behind the scenes insight into the nooks and crannies of Melbourne and surrounds that other visitors will not get the chance to see. As Director Josh Oakes says, it’s about ‘meeting the faces behind the places.’
With an understanding of their state’s dependence on the natural environment and a commitment to both showcasing this and doing their part to protect it for future generations, Melbourne Private Tours works hard to partner only with suppliers that have environmental management plans in place and only take visitors to wildlife sanctuaries that are publicly committed to preserving endangered species. In the future, Melbourne Private Tours hopes to offer 100% carbon neutral tours.
We are pleased to welcome Melbourne Private Tours to the Ecotourism Australia community and congratulate them on achieving Nature Tourism Certification for their tours: Phillip Island Ranger-Led Adventure, The Great Ocean Road, A Foodie’s Journey Through the Mornington Peninsula and Grampians Adventure.
