    Recommend taking this tour your first day (or at the beginning of your stay) in Melbourne. Our guide Jes was terrific!! We had an outstanding time learning all about the city’s laneways and history of Melbourne. We even tested our local friends to see if they knew some of the tidbits that Jes shared with us, and most did not. This was a highly enjoyable experience and Jes gave a wonderful overview at the start of the tour and clearly explained everything we saw and were to see along the way. The stop at Koko Black was delightful. Jes’ enthusiasm and knowledge were excellent, making this one of our top tours here in Australia. We highly recommend this tour and hopefully you will get Jes as your guide. After the tour ended we headed back to explore the laneways, stores and restaurants we had passed by on the tour and even rearranged our plans the next day to see more of what Jes had exposed us to. This tour enhanced our time in Melbourne tremendously.

    I travel solo because I don't like to be herded in a group. That is why these small walking tours are such fun. You have a knowledgeable guide who really know their city and enjoys showing it off. You have the opportunity to ask questions and get the little bits that really give you the flavor of the city. Great Fun!!!

    This walking tour in Melbourne is simply a must! The two very nice and knowledgeable guides will take you through amazing hidden lanes and arcades of the city which you may miss if you do it on your own. It is well worth it as you will learn many interesting things about Melbourne and also will be entertained by the good taste jokes and fun facts. Once we took the tour we went back to some of the places to enjoy more time. Book in advance and enjoy!

    Our guide Jess was amazing. We live in Melbourne and took overseas guests. We were taken to places we would have never got to if we didn’t do this tour. I highly recommend it to both locals and visitors
