Taking in different aspects - history, urbanism, street art...- this tour was à great intro to a great town. Despite the unseasonably awful weather, the guide (I went round with Dave) kept it interesting and fun. Good value, to be recommended

The tour started poorly, with a long and not very interesting discourse about the origins of the city. It was delivered while we sat in the shadow of construction noise from trucks prepping for the Open. Boring! Got better later when we went to the...More

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
