THUMBS UP
Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour

We're ex Melbourne-ites. Lived in NZ for past 25+ years. We have a pretty good knowledge of Melbourne. Not being rich and famous ourselves we thought we'd give it a go and see how the other half lives. Very enjoyable few hours

5 STAR TOUR
Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour

Great afternoon out
We originally scheduled it for the 10th but one of our party members 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.

KEL IS THE BEST AMBASSADOR TO THE CITY OF MELBOURNE
Sporting Icons & the Bayside Tour

RICH & FAMOUS
Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour

My partner and I went on the 'tour of the rich and famous' - with a description like that we did not know what to expect. We have both been Melbourne residents all of our lives but we discovered and learnt about areas of our home city that we had not know about beforehand.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
Sporting Icons & The Bayside Tour

Kel and Melissa drew up a tour of Melbourne and the surrounds based on their great knowledge, love of their city and one phone conversation with Tony. They picked us up from our hotel in a beautiful, clean and comfortable bus. After 5 minutes with them we felt like we had known them for years.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Cultural Melbourne Tour

“We had 2 days in Melbourne and were thrilled to see Melbourne outside of the CBD. Had no idea there was so much we could see in 3 hours. The weather was cold, but didn't affect the tour one bit. Next time we visit Melbourne, we’ll book again on another of your tours. Highly recommend Melbourne Encountour”.

BEST AFTERNOON
Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour

"A great three hours spent with Kel driving through some of Melbourne's eastern suburbs showing you a real insight into wealthy areas of Melbourne. Started with a drive through the city in a 12 seater mini bus. We walked along the Yarra River and saw mansions with private boat jetties, along the way we were shown houses where various well known Australians live, and we even looked through a new, very palatial home.

WOW
Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour

"Wow!!! if you really want a relaxing educational tour experience this is the way to go! Being a Melbourne resident I had no clue about the history of the Eastern suburbs. You really get to see where the rich and famous live and get a taste of their 'story'. When you learn about these things there's definitely more of an appreciation and respect that surfaces.

FANTASTIC DAY OUT
Private Tour

I was lucky enough to be invited on this Melbourne Encountour tour by Scottish friends. Kel and Melissa organised a specialised day trip to the Mornington Peninsula and each place we visited had spectacular views over our magnificent bay. The commentary was exceptional and the bus was clean. Terrific day enjoyed by all.

A WONDERFULLY INFORMATIVE AND ENJOYABLE TOUR
Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour

As we had a great time last year on our tour with Kel & Melissa, we booked another tour this year when we visited Melbourne. It was like meeting old friends again as Melissa & Kel make you feel so welcome. They actually gave us a look at both the Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour as well as the Sporting Icons & the Bayside Tour.

GREAT TOUR TO SEE HOW THE RICH AND FAMOUS LIVE
Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous Tour

We had a great time on the tour with Kel and Melissa who are both very welcoming. Kel is very knowledgeable and provided good commentary about the various sights on the tour. It was great to be able to sit back and see areas of Melbourne that we would not normally visit. Thank you Kel and Melissa for a great afternoon even though the weather was lousy.
