Very enjoyable, great guide, showed us places we'd never seen otherwise. I wish we'd taken this as our first tour!
Fascinating - included many places that I would not have found on my own.
The experience was really great for both my sister and myself. We had been to some of the arcades ourselves but there were many we would not have found, particularly the button shop and the kimono shop. The guide was a wealth of information and extremely attentive to what we were interested in and sought out shops that were of interest to us.
Wow, we were so surprised at how much we enjoyed this tour, especially the men. Guide did a wonderful job of showing us around and her enthusiasm for the beautiful buildings was contagious. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Melbourne.
Was different than I thought it would be, but also more interesting. Our guide was both enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
The Melbourne Lanes and Arcades Walking Tour was wonderful; we found things that we wouldn't have found on our own. The guide was marvelous, it was like walking with a friend. Thank you for a great day. I would thoroughly recommend the tour.
Was a wounderful experience. I have a new found respect for the buildings. There are so many shops and cafes, you will just indulge yourself.
This tour was ideal for the range of ages of the participants and inspired us all to further shopping! We were all fascinated by the historical information given along the way. Well done.
Thank you , Sean was a wonderful guide. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
It was a good tour very well done by the tour guide Zoey. Shows interesting areas that you would not see unless shown by an experienced guide.
worth going. guide nice and friendly. could have been less expensive
David loved the tour. Although he had walked through town on his own, he did not realise or see all the Arcades. Thanks to the guide, he discovered this whole new side to Melbourne and really enjoyed it.
Thoroughly enjoyable tour. Such a vast amount of history contained in the beautiful Lanes and Arcades. Sarah our tour guide was knowledgeable and approachable. An unexpected stop for morning tea at the hot chocolate was a welcome addition. We learnt to "look up" as we toured the CBD and found some fantastic architecture and history.
I am really pleased that I did the Lanes and Arcades Walking Tour. We had a small group of people with a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. I saw places I never would have found on my own. Thanks for the experience Fiona. GG.
Great tour. There was only two of us on it so we got individual attention. Very informative about the history of the Lanes and Arcades and we visited some cute boutique shops eg a button shop. Lovely morning tea in a beautiful chocolate shop, divine hot chilli chocolate drink.
This was a great walking tour that included history, art and food. Our guide was very informative and pointed out a lot of interesting facts. Even though this was my eighth visit to Melbourne I learnt things I didn't know before. The morning tea stop with chocolate sampling was wonderful and our optional lunch at the end of the tour was good and it was nice to sit and chat to fellow visitors on our tour. The full cost of the four hour tour including lunch was $120 which I thought was slightly overpriced.
The tour was fantastic, it was amazing seeing all the tiny shops,eateries etc and street art. We never would of found some of the places that we were taken to . Zoey our tour guide was brilliant, very friendly and knowledgable. We would definitely recommend the tour to anyone travelling to melbourne.
Excellent tour well paced on a very hot day. Maybe a little less emphasis on shopping would make it even better! Very nice lunch.
Very good tour but a bit expensive as you can pick up free walking tours.
Thank Anna it was an absolute great tour. Full of great information on Melbourne and was great to have a tour guide that was soooooo passionate.
Who would have thought that there was so many interesting laneways in a major capital city? Our guide Sarah was extremely knowledgable about everything she was able to answer all our questions. When we next visit Melbourne we will definately revisit these lanes and arcades. The coffee and chocolates were excellent and the meal at the conclusion of the tour was also excellent. Well done Viator.
