What To Expect

Localing Private Tours Melbourne
Take to the backstreets for a coffee fix somewhere wonderfully local and get to know your personable Localing host.

Stretch your legs in Melbourne’s quirky lanes and Victorian arcades. Leaf through old books and maps, jazz records or vintage clothing. Cruise the grand boulevards, get a lay of the land, hear a few stories and meet some of our interesting and creative local mates.

Sample local treats and native flavours. Hear the tales of a strange, off-beat city of radicals, prospectors and adventurers who all wound up together in this far-flung corner of the world.

Head to Little Italy for freshly whipped gelato or precision perfect pastry. Chat with the artisans and makers in kitchens, galleries and studios of Melbourne’s most colourful local boroughs.

Head to Melbourne’s former working-class heart, where punks and gangsters once reigned. Visit micro-factories, studios and warehouses powering Melbourne’s creative economy.

4 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Learn about green coffee bean selection or how to temper chocolate, visit street art galleries and local milliners, admire the craftsmanship, knowledge and passion that have become the calling cards of ‘Made in Melbourne’.

Enjoy a quick lunch at a neighbourhood cafe or slow down over first-rate fine dining. Get to know your host better, discuss local culture and how best to spend your time in Melbourne

In the afternoon, the experience is tailored specifically to you – explore the culture or sporting precincts, leafy bay-side suburbs like St. Kilda, riverfront gardens, galleries or local markets and shopping precincts.

The experience concludes at 2 pm (half-day) or between 4 and 5 pm (full-day) at your hotel or an inner-city location of your choosing.

4 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Our family of 4 (with two kids, ages 13 and 11) had a fantastic day touring Melbourne with Dan on New Year's Eve. Having grown up and gone to university in the city, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of its history, neighborhoods and culture and did a great job of conveying this information in an accessible and entertaining manner to each member of our family. He is also very easygoing and will flex the tour to ensure your particular interests are satisfied. We were driven around in a relatively new and very nice Mercedes van and were very comfortable throughout the entire tour. I highly recommend this tour when visiting Melbourne.
Great tour with Kate!

We did a bike tour with Kate today and my husband and I had a wonderful time. Kate knows the city like the back of her hand which was great for some first time Melbourne visitors from California. We saw great sights, toured the entire city, and had some awesome food along the way. We finished both tired and satisfied which was all we could ask for. Highly recommend this tour and make sure to ask for Kate!
so worth taking a private tour for Melbourne

My husband and I had a wonderful day with Mer on our Boroughs of Melbourne tour yesterday. Mer was full of information in each of the areas we visited. We had the opportunity to tour by car and by foot. The pace of the excursion was excellent. By the end our time with Mer, she had adapted our experience for us to suit our needs, listening to our requests and questions with sensitive skill. I would highly recommend this tour with Mer as your guide.

Wanted to get an overall feel of the neighborhoods of Melbourne and we got exactly what we asked for. Our guide, Kieran, was very personable and knowledgeable.
