Make this Christmas one to Remember!

We love Christmas here at Tour Local, which is why we are always looking for ways to truly make the most out of this magical time!
That's why we have come up with our Christmas Spectacular tour.

Start with a local pickup in our luxury 15 seat bus, Christmas Carols en-route!
From here, we make our way straight into the city, to the ever growing District at Docklands, where you will have some time to browse the shops for some last minute Christmas gifts or simply bask in the Christmas atmosphere.

Next stop is a delicious 3 course Christmas dinner at Berth in Docklands overlooking the beautiful Melbourne waterfront.

After dinner, we make our way into Crown where we take in their always amazing Sound and Light show in the Atrium. There are always little quirks here that keep us coming back each year for more.

By the time we leave Crown, darkness has settled on the city. We slowly make our way past some of Melbourne's most famous landmarks, all lit up in their Christmas glory.

We leave the city, and make our way North, to the simply breathtaking lights of the Ivanhoe Blvd. We are lucky here, as full size buses aren't allowed down this street anymore - but our 15 seater is!
We crawl at a snails pace along this now famous stretch of road (voted by some as the best stretch for Christmas lights in the country!), as we are spoiled for choice out both sides of our windows of house upon house decked to the halls in Christmas lights.

From here, we travel home - stopping in at a few other lights displays along the way.
