Day 1: Melbourne

For your comfort, an assistant will be waiting for you outside of Customs holding a sign with your name on it. This representative will assist you in meeting your private driver and accompany you to your accommodation in Melbourne to assist with check-in. 

A welcome package with a detailed itinerary, supplier contact list, various brochures of the destinations you will be visiting and any other touristic information that we deem you may find useful will be waiting for you upon arrival at the first hotel on your trip.

Accommodation: Park Hyatt Melbourne

Conveniently situated in one of Melbourne's most historic areas, at the top of Collins Street and opposite St Patrick's Cathedral, the Park Hyatt Melbourne overlooks a district of Victorian architecture and is bordered by Melbourne's delightful Fitzroy Gardens. Set amidst century old elm trees, Park Hyatt Melbourne is a private haven in the middle of a cosmopolitan city. Just 21 kilometers from Melbourne Airport and convenient to the city's attractions, this boutique-style hotel provides a warm ambience and exceptional levels of personalized service. One of only 18 Park Hyatts worldwide, Park Hyatt Melbourne is designed to ensure that guests experience sophistication, elegance and the intimate club-like atmosphere inspired by smaller hotels.

Day 2: Melbourne

Snaking through the heart of the city, Melburnians like to gently rib one another over which side of the Yarra River they live on. The sepia-colored Yarra is one of the stars of this private tour, but before you take to water, first celebrate the city’s unique laneway culture. Teeming with incredible hole-in-the-wall cafes manned by passionate baristas, the street-art daubed thoroughfares also host boutique galleries and designer stores showcasing local creations. Climb to a rooftop bar for a close-up look at the city’s glittering towers. Once you step on board your luxury private cruise, sit back and dig into a charcuterie and cheese board with a glass of Australian sparkling wine as you glide along the Yarra, marveling at that magnificent skyline from a very different angle, with Federation Square, the MCG, and the Royal Botanic Gardens as your dramatic backdrop.

It wouldn’t be a trip to the Yarra Valley without indulging in a wine tasting.

Consider a visit to their impressive art museum and take in the view of one of the most scenic vineyards in the country. The valley is also renowned for its fine winery-based restaurants. Enjoy a sumptuous lunch in picturesque settings at a celebrated vineyard restaurant.

  • Mona Y — June 14, 2019 — Australia & Pacific

    Rehana was wonderful. Her recommendations were all top notch and made me realize how well she knew Australia. Everything ran like clockwork and that allowed us to make the most of what was actually a short time in Australia. She was also very patient with my many questions and gave me alternatives when I asked. It is the third time that we've used Kensington Tours and I can't imagine using anyone else. We've never been disappointed.

  • Curtis L — March 21, 2019 — Australia & Pacific

    Kerry Brown was an exceptional travel consultant throughout the entire planning phase as well as a responsive resource as we encountered a few challenges while travelling. Her personal interest in our comfort, convenience, and pleasure made our trip an unforgettable experience. We will definitely consider using Kensington for international travel.

He was amazing!

Kensington Tours truly did an outstanding job arranging for our transportation, hotels and tour guides. They far exceeded my expectations.

  • Jennifer B — February 19, 2019 — Australia & Pacific

    We felt like rock stars on this trip! Everything was so well arranged and of high quality.

Many thanks for Jennifer May for accommodating our preferences of activities and hotels and making this all possible.

  • Jennifer U. — September 30, 2018 — Australia & Pacific

    We had run into a snag on our trip. When we could not resolve this on our own we reached out to the after-hours contact at Kensington and between her and our original trip organizer, the issue was resolved for us promptly. It let us enjoy the rest of our trip without the stress of having to deal with the issue on our own. Peace of mind is priceless.
