Erica had great knowledge of the city and it's history. The lanes and arcades were fascinating and we, as locals, had no idea what we have on our door step.

Our tour guide was very sweet and knowledgeable. I loved the storytelling feel of the tour and discovering little pockets of Melbourne I would not have known about or found on my own.

Christopher was a very dynamic guide. He was very informative about Melbourne’s History and how it has developed to be the city it is today. We loved seeing all the wee alleyways and being introduced to Melbournes special coffee! Thanks

Very interesting tour of our City with plenty of refreshments along the way. Plenty of choice of fine beverages, and we got to meet Chloe. The last stop for burgers also great. Our guide, Dave, very knowledgeable and engaging. A great tour and excellent experience.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
