We are a family run tour operator based in Melbourne. We specialise in private, luxury tours for inbound guests, looking for a custom experience.

Our story begins back in 1854 when our Great Great Grandfather, Lorenzo Gagiero arrived in Melbourne. Lorenzo, being one of the first Italians to arrive in Australia from Piedemont  established a bakery at Woodend, near the goldfields north of Melbourne. Since that time, Lorenzo's family descendants have lived in and around Melbourne for over 160 years.

Today in the tourism industry, Marks Melbourne Private Tours continues on with the warm hospitality and friendliness that Lorenzo nurtured all those years ago in the bakery.  Mark is a registered & Accredited Tour Guide and we are a Licensed Victoria Parks Tour Operator in the state of Victoria. Our team of driver/guides are all local Melbournians who know the city and offer our guests the opportunity to see and learn about the local sights that will make your time in Australia memorable.
