The Melbourne Lanes Tour was the highlight of our visit to Melbourne. Our guide, Fiona, was a delightful young woman and provided a wealth of information in a relaxed and friendly way. Our coffee stop was certainly worth waiting for! I'd recommend the tour to anyone - even locals who may not know the history of these fascinating areas. Peg Coleman

Excellent tour. Well informed guide who kept talking for the three hours or so and all of it interesting. Not a long walk in terms of distance. Sensible shoes or trainers would suffice. Stopped for tea/coffee in a posh eatery.
Recommended because you get to know Melbourne very well through this tour.
