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,  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 warm hospitality and friendliness that Lorenzo nurtured all those years ago in the bakery.  Mark is  a registered & Accredited Tour Guide.
