    Our guide Kathy was exceptional, her knowledge, consideration and guidance was greatly appreciated. Kathy was an excellent host, I would highly recommend. Lots of tasty samples, great coffee, and a really nice meal to finish. Perfect.

    My partner and I, both from Melbourne, loved this tour. The pace is relaxed, yet we managed to cover plenty of ground. We were both delighted to learn about hidden lunch spots so close to our CBD offices. Kathy is an excellent guide - we both remarked that she felt more like a hip friend than a tour guide! Highly recommended.

    What a wonderful tour, Kathy's knowledge and passion for the food scene in Melbourne was amazing. Very pleasantly paced, did not feel rushed at all. Was great to learn the history of the places you’ve walk past a million times before and the ones you never knew existed. Would highly recommend this tour.

    I've lived in Melbourne my whole life and I learnt so much. Kathy was so knowledgeable and friendly.

    A tour for visitors and locals. Kathy was an excellent guide. No gelato or cheese tasting as not open in the morning now, But other lovely surprises. The time flies as so interesting. 4 of us enjoyed the tour very much.

    Cathy showed us places in Melbourne we never knew existed and her knowledge of the history of not only Melbourne it also all aspects of the food scene was outstanding. This tour was 3 hours of total enjoyment - the walking was easy and the food was very tasty. We will definitely book with this tour company again

    Cathy was a wonderful tour guide full of vibrancy and knowledge of the Melbourne food/coffee culture. Every one must do this tour at least once, whether you are a local or visiting. We can not recommend this tour high enough.

    Fabulous tour. Cathy was a very informative guide. Enjoyed the tour tremendously. Covered restaurants, hidden bars, history of the area. Tasty samples along the way.

    Unfortunately, due to low sign-ups and rainy weather, our tour was canceled. But I still wanted to write a review because Rosie at MELTours was terrific and she even provided us with a list of stops so we could recreate some of the tour ourselves. We loved the variety of foods (Australian flat white and croissant, Indian samosas, Chinese cakes, and French cheese board) and how the shops were situated in a bustling neighborhood that also included great graffiti and laneways. Of course this was more of a "taste" of the Taste of Melbourne tour since we couldn't do everything and didn't have a guide--but we were very pleased with how we were accommodated.

    To have a good tour you need just two things - a guide who is informative, social and can get the group socialising together And second is several quality eateries on the tour. Unfortunately we were let down by both. The tour didn’t start with gelato and coffee as described but a visit to a local cheese maker. This was actually the best part of the tour which we all enjoyed. Although the guide did this weird thing whereby he didn’t know where to pay and at each place paid as we went along. It felt a bit unorganised from the start. Let’s say it wasn’t smoothly done as we stood waiting for him to pay. From then on we raced through Melbourne (we had two lovely 80 year olds with us who struggled to keep up). The guide marched on leaving us to walk with them as they were panicking they would get lost On past food tours we have visited local eating places, had a chat about how they started out and had a sample of food. Instead we went into local shop keepers They said when they came to Melbourne. We left. We got taken around a Chinese supermarket where the Chinese version of a pot noodle was pointed out to us Just weird. We did watch noodle making in a window - as did joe public - then we left again with no sample food. We walked into one restaurant that had staff in but was still closed with chairs up on tables to watch them make dumplings and the guys in the restaurant looked baffled and definitely werent expecting us Our guide did thumbs up to the lady making dumplings saying keep up the good work and again we were ushered out without food. Just really awkward We sampled cheese at the first place, we had a little cake at another and a coffee at another. Then lunch whereby incidentally you have to pay extra for drinks on the day. At this point we sat down to order and our guide left us as he had a wedding to attend so we all sat and discussed with each other how bad the day had been There were six of us on the tour We did do the I’m Free Melbourne Walking Tour which was sooooo much better and we gave her $20 for her efforts then went and eat on our own but that was so good and so much less $$$ Sorry guys. I’m trying to think of a positive but struggling Everyone agreed we wouldn’t forget it
