The walking tour was very interesting as Kathy, our tour guide, was full of interesting information about the sites used during the filming of the series but also about other historical sites around Melbourne.

My wife and I enjoyed this tour thoroughly. The restaurant meal at the start was unexpected; however it enabled the tour group (of 5) to get to know each other, which enhanced the tour. The tour was well designed and enjoyable.

Such a great afternoon. Kathy is full of interesting information, not only about the sites that were used in the filming of the series but it other historical sites from the era that the character Miss Fishers would have frequented. Don't eat lunch before hand as the 'afternoon tea' at the start is more like a yummy late lunch. Be... More

I read about this tour on Facebook and purchased it as a gift for my parents several months ago. They loved the tour but said they shouldn't have had lunch prior. So on the day we did this tour with friends, we didn't have lunch beforehand. The afternoon tea / meal of salad of the day, sandwiches, scones, jam and... More

Fantastic 3 hours walking the Melbourne Laneways with Kathy. She provided us with an excellent overview of Melbourne history and a fun few hours exploring amazing places that we would not have found on our own. Would highly recommend!

I've lived in Melbourne for 15 years but I learnt more about my fabulous city from Cathy in 3 hours than I have learnt in my entire time here! Just loved the tour and Cathy was amazing.

Our Tour guide Kathy was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and made the 3 hour tour fly by. I actually live in Melbourne but I saw and learned things I would never have found myself. We visited fabulous laneways, shops, arcades and Kathy had a story for each one. I can't recommend this tour enough and I am actually going to... More

Amazing 3 hour tour of Melbourne lanes, shops and historic buildings conducted by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable Kathy. My wife and I have been visiting Melbourne for many years and had been down a number of the laneways and in some of the buildings, but the tour provides a wonderful insight along with history and events. Would thoroughly recommend this... More

Brilliant tour. San gave us an excellent history of Melbourne then took us through fascinating laneways, shops, buildings, arcades and cafes. Although we have lived in Melbourne all our lives San took us to places that we have never seen and gave us lots of really interesting information. I would thoroughly recommend this tour, we had a great day.

A Laneways tour with MEL Tours set the scene for a recent girl's weekend in Melbourne. We found the tour gave us an insight into Melbourne's laneways that we wouldn't have discovered on our own. We learnt so much about places we hadn't given a second look at previously. Kathy, our guide was engaging in her delivery and kept us... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
