Show Me Melbourne: A Trusted Tour Operator Exploring the City’s Undiscovered Nooks and Crannies
This Summer, take Melbourne by storm with a carefully-curated experience led by one of Victoria’s leading day tour experts.
Australia’s second-largest city is not only home to a flourishing central business district, but also suburbs that spread more than 40 km to the south, 30 km to the east, 20 km to the north and finally sprawling across vast, flat basalt plains to the west. It’s a bustling, vibrant city filled with diverse characteristics and deep-rooted culture centred around the arts, food, fashion, sport and history.
Melbourne has a reputation for conservatism and of course financial soundness – attributes that have contributed to the rapid growth of this city against the backdrop of a revelatory, burgeoning skyline that leads to the expanding suburbs beyond.
Melbourne’s impressive growth and expansion aside, 2019 proved to be a year of staggering statistics within the tourism sector, welcoming a collective 39.5 million domestic and international visitors.
Right in the middle of this impressive influx, is Show Me Melbourne – a tour operator producing immersive day tours around the city’s most thrilling experiences.
Making It Memorable
“Show Me Melbourne’s aim has always been to lead excursions that are unique, but that also cover an element of history or culture other tour operators do not touch base on,” says Jess Lothian, owner of the day-tour company, Show Me Melbourne.
This has helped them to serve their knowledge of Melbourne in four niches (History & Culture, Shopping, Sports and Private) that highlights a collection of distinctive itineraries.
Furthermore, Lothian said that “Show Me Melbourne’s jam-packed excursions are perfect for boys’ and girls’ weekends away, it brings together corporate groups but also works well with families and groups of friends who wish to explore the capital of Victoria with the help of our local insight.”
It comes as no surprise that nothing but the best insight and a journey off the beaten track can be expected, but also the anticipation to be welcomed as a friend and not just another guest on a list.
Lothian merged her professional experiences (including that of Melbourne Shopping Experiences and Melbourne Sports Tours) by adding the Rotary ethos “Service Above Self” to create a solid platform from which she hopes to share the joys of Melbourne from a relaxed and informative perspective.
A Precautionary Tale
The “New Normal” definitely ruffled some feathers and has forced many industries to review and adapt their way of doing business. The tourism sector is no exception – especially as an industry that has suffered more greatly than others.
To welcome these changes, Show Me Melbourne has taken “zero shortcuts to provide a safe and socially-distant environment for guests to enjoy the city in,” according to Lothian. Granted, the streets may be quieter than usual, but perhaps this will present a few advantages in itself.
Think more legroom to stride down the sidewalks of the city, first pickings on bargains, less waiting times for drinks and lunch, and of course better opportunities to catch that perfect selfie in the middle of the street.
To warrant that they meet operational standards as required by the Australian government, basic requirements to onboard a tour must be met. All bus and walking tours are handled with the utmost care guaranteeing physical distancing, the wearing of face masks indoors and observing good hygiene.
Additionally, the team will make use of a record-keeping log to disclose guest information with the DHHS in the event of a confirmed case on one of their tours.
Time in the tour buses will be limited to travel only, and where a stop is longer than 15 minutes, the bus will be aired and re-sanitised. Show Me Melbourne will also not use recirculated air to ventilate the bus and windows will be open where practical.
In addition to that, “If any leg of the journey exceeds 30 minutes, it will be broken with a rest stop to ventilate the bus. All guests will need to disembark for the duration of the ventilation stop,” confirmed Lothian when asked about any other preventative measures that the business is implementing.
“Show Me Melbourne is as ready as ever to guide domestic and international visitors through Victoria’s fairest with the help of our precautionary regulations,” says Lothian.
But it’s also their well-rounded outlook on guest relations, and a healthy dose of optimism that leads the way through the streets of a city waiting to welcome everyone with open arms.
