Start your tour at the Eureka Skydeck, an 88-storey skyscraper that is home to stunning views of the city. Your guide brings you to the top of the tower, pointing out key points of interest in the city and previewing where you will go next. After coming back down to earth, its time to dive into the cityscape.
First, a coffee. Your guide explains what makes Melbourne coffee unique, what to look for in a barista, and some of the vocabulary to use when ordering a coffee. Youll put your knowledge to the test by ordering a brew, then enjoying it with your group.
Next, its time to explore Melbournes famous street art scene. What used to simply be called graffiti has become a trendy artistic style, and the laneways of this city are filled with constantly evolving murals. Your guide brings you to some of their favorites and explain how the movement has developed, exploring the work of these back alley artists until youve worked up an appetite.
And what better way to meet that appetite than with Melbournes multicultural food scene. Your guide takes you to their favourite local restaurant for a hearty sample of one of the many cuisines Melbourne is known for. Here your guide will tell you about the numerous waves of migrants who have helped to create the Melbourne we see today.
After youve finished eating, its time for a drink. Melbourne is filled with many fun and fabulous bars, but you need a local to tell you which ones are hot at this very moment. Your guide will take you to a trendy bar to finish things off with a beer (or soda) and a final chat.
By the end of your tour, youll be able to spot amazing art, cafes, restaurants, and bars like a local. But if you still need more tips, your guide will be happy to offer up some suggestions for the rest of your stay.
