If you lived in Melbourne, you might start to wonder why anyone would ever leave the greater metropolitan area. Beautiful weather, stunning gardens, award-winning cuisine, forward-thinking fashion, magnificent beaches, world-class sports, and a famous music scene are just a handful of Melbourne's claims to fame. The list could go on for miles. Rather than getting sidetracked into a trance at just one of these cultural subsections, why not have a local guide take you to some of the best things in the area?

With your private vehicle, the day is yours to explore the city and beachside suburbs. If anything catches your eye, make sure to shout, kindly, at your guide for a potential impromptu stop. Federation Square and Flinders St. Station are a couple of the busiest pedestrian hubs in the city that showcase both Melbourne's Victorian architecture and modern designs. From this focal point of the central city, make sure to dive in and out of the iconic laneways and alleys that are home to some of the best cafes, bars, boutiques, and galleries in all of Australia.

Considered the sporting capital of Australia, Melbourne is also home to one of the more impressive sporting precincts in the world. The Melbourne Cricket Ground, known as the "MCG" to locals, serves as an epicenter of entertainment and sport for the entire country. Areas like St. Kilda, Melbourne's summer playground, will also be at your fingertips during this customizable day.

As we said, the list is endless, so, after developing a quick game plan with your guide, it will be time to jump in and explore one of Australia's greatest gems.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
