Caitlyn O’Dowd

The river cruise-turned walking tour guide


One of our most experienced guides, Caitlyn’s life began in Melbourne and was detoured to The Netherlands after meeting her Dutch husband. While learning to speak Dutch (a requirement for citizenship) Caitlyn worked as a cruise director with Viking River Cruises. Prior to that, Caitlyn worked with Busabout giving tours around Europe.

Caitlyn recently returned home to Melbourne to start a new family. It’s no easy feat to be on one’s feet while pregnant, but after guiding throughout the 2019/20 season, Caitlyn welcomed her daughter into the world. Caitlyn will be raising her daughter as a Collingwood supporter, her lifelong football team. Ask her about “The Pies” — but don’t be surprised by her comprehensive knowledge of the history of the team.

“Caitlyn did a perfect job! The right amount of information in the right speed and always extremely friendly, knowledgeable and funny.”
