Very interesting and the guide was knowledgeable with a very pleasant personality. Would like a little more history included. Hot chocolate stop was too long. It would have been more enjoyable to have had the guide stay for the lunch (also too long a wait for lunch to arrive).
Thought the experience was worth while. Strongly suspect this was paricularly due to our guide's effort on the day and her lovely manner. Thought the map of the tour would have benefited by being bigger & therefore easier to follow. Goodie bag really was a misnomer it could have been so much more and only 2 store discounts was pretty poor. Morning tea a treat. Lunch just fine -thanks.
Enjoyed the tour very much as I experienced areas of Melbourne I was not aware existed. The hostess was easy going with a wealth of information about architecture, grafitti and shopping. I found the group of 10 too large. I think 6-8 participants would be ideal.
I have been to Melbourne many times, but we saw so much we had no idea about. Our tour guide was fantastic. We loved it, and would recommend the tour to anyone visiting the great city of Melbourne.
I though it was worthwhile and went back and did some of the arcades on my own. Found the guide more into art then allowing time to shop in the arcades could be a longer tour allowing more time. Though I did enjoy myself.
Found places and learned things we would never have seen or known about. Enjoyed reliving the tour as we revisited the places.
Worth doing - nice easy pace, interesting tidbits about buildings and laneways.
It was very pleasant and the tour guide was informative and interesting.
I must admit that I began to call this tour "a view of Melbourne's garbage collection containers". We seemed to miss out all the big, interesting streets and kept delving down dark alleyways which of course the shops and restaurants used to put their bins in. However, after a while things did look up and we did see Block's and The Royal Arcade. Spent too much time on graffiti for my liking and not enough on the iconic landmark buildings of Melbourne and their history.
Very interesting. Great group not large. Found some out of the way arcades. Would recommend it to anyone visiting
Something different but I don't really think worth the money.
