.As I knew we would be in Melbourne overnight and that we had been there before I was looking for something a little different which we found.Lousia was extremely friendly and her knowledge was amazing. She included everyone as if it was a one on one tour. Thank you Louisa.. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. I have mentioned it to a few friends already and one friend has booked her daughter (who lives in Melbourne )Two tickets as Christmas presents. Once again thank you.
the tour guide was excellent - engaging and enthusiastic with out going over the top. we saw a side of Melbourne that we were unaware of and will go back when we are over to revisit many of the sites. we have recommended the tour to our friends and am confident that they will also take the tour in the new year.
Outstanding tour. The guide was exceptional. We learnt so much about the history of Melbourne and loved discovering all the hidden delights of such a beautiful city. Lunch was delicious. We have already recommended the tour to friends visiting Melbourne in a few weeks. I hope they are fortunate enough to have Denae as their guide. Greg and Julia Hill
My husband and I have done a number of tours with Viator and they have always been first rate and this one was no exception.
Sarah has wonderful - very personable and knowledgeable. Can't wait to get back to Melbourne to do the 'Café Culture' walking tour.
We really enjoyed the morning. I was not sure if my husband would be bored but there was so much history and architecture included that found it fascinating. The knowledge and friendliness of our guide added to the pleasure
Loved this tour. The tour guides were well-informed and entertaining and I would definitely repeat the experience. Lunch was also a plus.
The tour company that Viator used for this tour was really a cut above the other tour companies. Our tour guide was very informative and funny, and tolerant of people wanting to stop, shop and take pictures.
And, I learned so much about the great city of Melbourne!
Luisa, our guide, shared her love and knowledge of this fabulous city with us. She bypasses the well-known, iconic tourist spots and unearths the hidden, quirky places with character and tells the history with passion. It's fascinating and an eye-opener. How would we have found out about Bourke St honey, the underground textile factories, the tiniest bar and tiniest cafe in Melbourne without our Luisa. The morning tea and lunch were fabulous. Small group of 6 was a plus.
This tour was fabulous. The tour leader was informative and paced the tour well. We saw many places which we would never have know existed we later revisited. Would recommend this tour to all my friends.
Great tour. Very interesting. Nice lunch. Helpful, friendly and knowledgeable tour guide.
Started on time. Sean was very informative, really knows his stuff. Size of group was ideal. Enjoyed everything about it and have recommended it most highly to all and sundry. Will be looking at your other offerings to do in the future.
Thorougly enjoyed this different and uniquely Melbourne tour.
Very informed and friendly guide.
Great cholate tasting(probably not so great for the waistline)
Would do again
The best tour in Melbourne we did! It's so fab seeing the city's secrets and understanding what makes Melbourne tick. Definitely do this at the start of your trip as it will influence what you decide to explore later. Worth every penny.
Fantastic. The tour guide was so passionate and knowledgeable. What a great way to see the city.
This is a must do, you really get to feel and understand the culture of Melbourne. We loved this tour, it was a highlight and Sean was a great tour guide.
It was an excellent arcade walkin tour with an excellent tour guide
This was an outstanding tour. The local knowledge of our guide provided a great insight into the city. We were then able to spend the afternoon revisiting points of interest. We were also able to appreciate the street art in other lanes later in the week, as we recognised artists work. I have already recomended the tour to my friends and family.
Loved it. Not too big a group and I learned a lot about the history of the lanes and buildings and the people. Fiona was very knowledgeable and friendly. Not too fast paced either.
The tour was informative and relaxed there were plenty of photo opportunities and the small number groups work well.We would recommend this tour to anyone.
Sarah our tour guide was fantastic. You visit many lanes, arcades and shops and it's great to go in cause if you see something you want to buy, you can come back later because your walking tour is mapped out for you and you receive discount offers so hold off and check what you have in your little goody bag you get at the start of the tour.
I loved the lanes and arcades tour. The guide was enthusiastic and really knowledgeable and I retraced our steps afterwards and really enjoyed it.
Where do I start! This walking tour was everything and more than we had expected. Although we had been to Melbourne on a number of occasions, we had decided to take a walking tour during this visit. Sean (our guide for the tour) initially met us, introduced himself and proceeded to inform us of what the tour would entail. The company provided a useful bag which contained a map of our tour and the all important bottle of water! It was lovely to have a small group as it enabled everyone to interact. Sean provided so much information as we wondered through the back lanes and arcades - going to places we would never have dared to enter! Coffee and lunch (including a glass of wine if you wish) are included in the cost of the walk - both very yummy! My sister and I would highly recommend this walking tour to anyone who is visiting Melbourne.

Fabulous. A great way to get a feel for the real Melbourne. Really enjoyed it and it felt very authentic.
We had a great time, and Sean our guide was awesome, he is very passionate about Melbourne and really enjoys his work. We went to places we would never find on our own and it will make our future experiences in Melbourne more amazing. Thanks heaps Sean, will definitley recomend this tour
