Thank you Julie for such a lovely day for my friends and I! Julie was such a kind and sweet tour guide who knew so much about Australia and was very informative about things to do in Melbourne as well as the rest of Australia! She is very passionate about showing people the real beauties this country has to offer and we really appreciated all the knowledge she passed on to us. By the end of this wonderful day, Julie wasn’t just our great tour guide, but became our friend!  5/5!

Private Tours Victoria, I must say, you guys conduct the best tours in Melbourne! We did one of their Phillip Island tours and it was superb! The tour guide, Francois, was quite the character. We would book any tour again simply for the company of our wonderful guide. The tour itself was excellent. The places we visited and all the animals we saw such as kangaroos and koalas, and of course, the little penguins. What a day!

FANTASTIC DAY OUT! We had an amazing day with Melbourne private tour guide Francois! The Great Ocean Road tour is filled with so much beautiful scenery and we also saw Australian wildlife. It was ultimately an Australian nature and wildlife tour. What a memorable day with great company! Thank you Private Tours Victoria!

Booked a Puffing Billy tour with this company for my family and I and also did a tour around Mt. Dandenong. It was such a beautiful day as it was Autumn in Melbourne and Mt. Dandenong is filled with many gorgeous trees and plantations. The mountain towns such as Sassafras and Olinda were really cute. The Puffing Billy ride was a lot of fun for all of us. Our tour guide Francois was such a nice, fun person who kept us entertained all day. Thanks guys for a wonderful Melbourne day tour!

We are a family for 4 (2 kids and 2 adults) who contacted Private Tours Victoria because we saw that their website had a lot of unique, tailored private tours in Melbourne. When we saw their Mornington Family Fun tour, it immediately captured our interests so we booked this tour. Francois was our amazing tour guide for the day. We all had so much fun with him. Francois has a great sense of humour with an abundance of knowledge about Melbourne things to do. We had a wonderful day out as a family thanks to our excellent host. When we come back to Australia, we will be sure to book more Melbourne tours with Private Tours Victoria!

I booked several Melbourne private tours with Cameron who was very informative and helpful with customizing the perfect itineraries for me and my girlfriend. We ended up doing one of their Yarra Valley wine tours and Peninsula Hot Springs tour. 2 great days that we’ll never forget! Cameron was an excellent guide with a lot of knowledge. I don’t usually book guided services as I prefer to do my own thing with my girlfriend when we do tours, but our friends had recommend Private Tours Victoria to us and we are happy about the decision we made to do a guided tour with Cameron. He gave us space when we needed it but also kept us in the loop. Perfect balance and we thank you Cameron for hosting us in Melbourne!

My wife, Nancy, booked some Melbourne private tours with Tali, who was very knowledgeable and attentive to all of my wife’s questions about places to visit in Melbourne. Tali suggested to us a Great Ocean Road tour, Phillip Island tour, and Yarra Valley tour, so we proceeded with these three private tours of Melbourne. Our tour guide was Cameron, who hosted our wonderful Melbourne experience for the entire duration of the three tours. Cameron was a very passionate tour guide who had a wealth of knowledge about Melbourne and all of Australia. We had a wonderful time touring with Cameron and seeing the best places in Melbourne. We felt that Cameron went the extra mile with his services. He sees tour guiding as a hobby rather than a job and has a lot of passion for sharing his experiences with his guests. We appreciate everything this company have done for us and we will recommend them to all of our family and friends in Singapore!

My friends and I booked a Peninsula hot springs tour and mixed it up with a Mornington Peninsula tour which turned out to be a really great day. We visited a lot of boutique wineries in Red Hill and had a winery lunch at a nice restaurant overlooking the vineyards. After a beautiful day visiting wineries of the Mornington Peninsula, we spent the afternoon/evening at the Peninsula hot springs. It was the perfect ending to such a wonderful day. Our tour guide was excellent. He knew so much about the wines and all the places to visit in the Mornington Peninsula. We’ll definitely do a Melbourne tour with Private Tours Victoria again and we recommend them to everyone!

What an amazing day! Our Great Ocean Road tour was so much fun and the sites were all so dramatic and extremely beautiful! I just loved the 12 Apostles tour! One really hidden special spot was the Razorback (WOW!). I enjoyed seeing the koalas, feeding the Aussie birds, and seeing kangaroos graze. Such a special experience! Private Tours Victoria are a great company with a lovely team- the experience we had starting from the lovely lady (Tali) we spoke with on the phone who organized the memorable day for us and the tour guide, Cameron, who showed us a great time. We are so grateful for their excellent services. 5 stars!

We had a great time on one of their Yarra Valley private winery tours. The itinerary was really flexible for us to select our own wineries and attractions. The tour guide, Cameron, was very knowledgeable about wine and Victoria. We were a group of 7 people touring for one of our friend’s birthday and we found that the Yarra Valley tour ran smoothly, was entertaining and fun, and the wines were EXCELLENT. Cameron made the tour really memorable and special by giving the birthday boy a nice present- Chandon Sparkling. Thanks again Cameron and we wish you all the best!

My boyfriend and I came from New York to visit Australia and while we were in Melbourne, we wanted to do a tour and the hotel concierge advised us of Private Tours Victoria.
The tour we did was customized to suit us. We wanted a unique Australian experience and we sure got it! Talika and Cameron are amazing tour guides who are both very passionate about what they do and the tour we did was PERFECT!
We had the best time in Melbourne thanks to our tour guides. We definitely recommend this company to everyone. If you want the ultimate perfect experience, Talika and Cameron are the people to tour with. We really appreciated every second of the tour and we look forward to seeing them next time we’re in Melbourne.

We recently enjoyed a two day Great Ocean Road Tour and also a Phillip Island tour. We found Cameron & Talika enthusiastic, knowledgeable and only too willing to accommodate any changes we wished to make during the tours. They were always punctual with a well-presented vehicle and a standard of driving which gave us no cause for alarm. They went out of their way to show us locations off the beaten track as well as the standard ones which added to the pleasure of our experience. We covered Bell’s Beach, Lorne, Apollo Bay Great Otway National Park Pt Campbell and various coastal points and all points in between. We were not bound by bus schedules and enjoyed complete flexibility. Among the wildlife we saw were koalas, kangaroos various parrots and sea birds as well as seals (if your eyesight was good enough). We were offered walks within our physical limitations although the more energetic could have ventured further, both in the National Park and down on the sea shores. At our request they arranged over-night accommodation at Apollo Bay and made bookings for us at La Bimba Restaurant that evening.

A couple of days later they took us to Phillip Island. After collecting us from our hotel we took a run to Brighton where we saw the multi-coloured bathing sheds as well as outstanding properties on the foreshore. We then drove to Phillip Island at a leisurely pace since the penguins do not appear until after sunset (nearly 9pm with daylight saving) We spent some time looking at the farm on Hamilton Island. They then took us to a chocolate factory for a brief visit before driving to Cowes where they had book Harry’s Rest for us to have our dinner. From there we went to the viewing area where we spent quite some time viewing the surrounding coastline and inlets. They had pre-purchased the entry tickets both for the penguins and Hamilton Is and thoughtfully provided cushions as aluminium and/or concrete seats become rather uncomfortable after a short time. They also directed us to a good vantage point for the later arrival of the little penguins. The staff at the sanctuary gave a very useful briefing both in English and other languages to give us an idea what to expect and ensure that flash cameras or mobile phones etc were not used.
At the end of the show we found them without difficulty and had a good run back to MLB arriving at midnight.
We were delighted with both trips that they arranged for us and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone seeking a personalized tour within Victoria.
