Caity was awesome. I highly recommend her as your tour guide. The tour itself was a perfect introduction to the hidden alleyways and lanes that are Melbourne. You'll want to retrace your steps afterwards to browse and shop.
Excellent tour. I walked thru some laneways on my own, but didn't really see the treasures until I did this tour with our delightful guide. Lots of fun stops, especially the hot chocolate stop. I highly recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed this tour which had the right balance of history and information. Sarah was great and I took on board her advice to look up in Melbourne- you really do miss some great things if you don't as everything isn't at eye level. Hot chocolate was amazing. Loved the small group as its easier to walk about in small numbers.
A very informative and interesting tour - I learnt so much !
The tour on Saturday 25 July was sensational and exquisitely led by Louisa. Hopefully on my next visit to Melbourne I can have an equally enjoyable experience and with a great group again too! M
Very good walking tour of the lanes. Plenty of information given along the way. Excellent food and drink. A must tour for all.
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! Very knowledgable tour guide. So many histories about Melbourne arcades.
It was simply wonderful!. Informative, articulate , lovely guide showing us the best of classy Melbourne.
wonderful,never expected that Melbourne have a unique alley and the tour guide was informative
The tour was excellent and gave me a real insight into a Melbourne I would have missed. The tor guide was informative and the tour well paced. I will be recommending the tour to my friends.
Sarah was our amazing guide. So informative and interesting. I learned so much about the city I thought I knew. Now we intend to do more of your tours. Loved the small group
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.
That tour was lovely! Lots of stories, lots of shops and I came back and spent oh too much money LOL and lots of Melbourne feeling. greatly recommended!!!
My friend and I had a marvelous time. Zoe our guide was extremely informative and amusing. We saw so many things that we would have missed if we hadn't gone on the tourThe small group of eight was perfect. I would recommend this tour to all my friends.
Must do for Melbourne. To see the real Melbourne this tour is it. Guide is knowlegable and informed.
We would recommend this tour to anyone of any age visiting Melbourne. Zoe was an amazing guide and has a great knowledge of Melbourne. Having a small group was great as it gave us the chance to get to know our fellow "tour mates". We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and even went back to some of the places visited during the tour!
This was a very interesting tour and I gained a lot of information about central Melbourne. There was lots of historical facts imbedded in the tour along with really interesting shops and of course the most beautiful arcades and buildings. A 'must do' if you want to really know about inner city Melbourne.
We had been to Melbourne so many times but this time thought to do a tour of the lanes and arcades as they are so Melbourne and we did not know where half of them were. Sarah, our guide was so good and made our time very informative, not rushed and we discovered so many lanes and arcades we did not know existed. A café is situated in any tiny spot. If you are like us and go to Melbourne a must do, if you are from overseas, a must do. Thanks Viator for a great tour but to Sarah for a very informative time.
Such an interesting tour so much information that you would miss if you walked around the city alone
Made new friends definitely would recommend this tour
This was a really terrific way to learn the history of Melbourne, and to get your bearings. I had my two daughters in their 20's who loved it as well. We revisited some of the arcades and highlights later on our own, and were pretty chuffed we remembered where to go as well. The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about her city, and that really showed in her presentation and our want to come back. We saw arcades, shops etc. that I know we wouldn't seen had we not done the tour.
It was a really great way to find all the much talked about laneways. Wonderful little gems that I went back to throughout my visit that would've been much harder to find had I not taken the tour. Loved everything about it!
