This was my first time using VIATOR to schedule side trips and tours on vacation. I was especially nervous as an American headed to Melbourne, AU, with no idea how to start our family trip. A city tour seemed to be a good place to start and Rob from Your Exclusive Tours was EXCELLENT!! Shortly after I booked the experience, he personally emailed me asking about the type of tour we wanted. I explained I wanted to see and experience the local culture, and boy, did he come through!

Rob picked us up promptly at our hotel in a luxury Mercedes Benz van that was very comfortable for our family of 4 adults. We started our tour at Victoria Market, where we sampled wines and cheeses, had coffee and delicious donuts, and even did some oyster shooters. I felt like I was on a travel tv show it was so much fun! We were off to an amazing start with Rob and I couldn’t wait to see where he was taking us next! We then stopped for a self-guided tour of St Patrick’s Cathedral and we’re even treated to the organist practicing for the next service! Next stop was the street art areas where we could get some fun photos. We walked down to the train station and got some more great pictures. Rob was very kind and noticed our elderly traveler was having a hard time with walking and he would get the van for us so she wouldn’t have to walk as far. We then went to the Shrine of Remembrance which was a wonderful way to learn about the local history of World War I. Rob would always have a personal vignette or two to share making each site more special. We got some great photos of downtown Melbourne from this spot! Rob also drove us around many different neighborhoods sharing local information as we traveled around. The tour Rob provided was amazing and it was hard to believe it was coming to an end! He dropped us off at a fantastic local pub where we had a delicious lunch and then headed on our own back to the hotel. We loved Rob’s personalized tour so much that we even booked a day trip with him along the Great Ocean Road!!

Definitely check out Rob, especially if your family needs some room, special needs, or just wants a fun time with a great guy!
Excellent private tour

Rob picked us up at the cruise terminal which was very seamless. Since this is a private tour, the itinerary is totally flexible. Even to the point where Rob found a manicure shop for my wife who just casually mentioned she wanted one. She was in and out in 25 minutes. The only problem was it was in the morning and the pubs were closed. So I couldn't spend my 25 minutes wait with a Bloody Mary. Rob knows everything about the area and is very friendly. We each spent a good portion of the tour making very bad jokes about each other.
Great excursion from the cruise terminal!

Kylie and Rob set up a great day for our group of four. Kylie met us at the cruise terminal, which was very convenient for us. The car was comfortable, clean and easy to get in and out of. This was my husband and my first trip to Melbourne, but the other couple we were with knew the area well. Kylie took us to all the best places and told us all about the areas as we explored. We had a great day and would recommend this tour to any groups coming off a cruise ship. We were never worried about making our "all aboard" because Kylie clearly knew the area well and was able to avoid traffic. It was great to have a more personal and private experience.
Great guide Rob took care of everything happy to have him we did two tours with him he was that good

Rob met us at the pier. It was just the three of us. We could not believe when it said personal tour that it really was just us (no unexpected additions) he made our day so personal. It felt like you were spending the day with a friend. He thought us how to do a Tim Tam Slam (an everlasting memory) took us to see everything we wanted and more.
We had a great time and...
