Walking Tour of Brisbane
Phil_M, May 2019
Our guide, Lee-Anne met us with a cheery welcome and we began our three hour walk around Brisbane. Lee-Anne has a wealth of knowledge about the history of Brisbane, which she imparted as we walked. Part way into the tour we stopped off for a welcome coffee at a boutique coffee shop in one of Brisbane's lanes and drank coffee that was locally roasted. Walking a City with a guide is both a healthy and informative way to absorb an understanding of the history of a City. Lee-Anne Harris' cheery commentary made the walk all the more pleasurable and we thoroughly enjoyed the walk and the learnings. Recommended.

The tour was great! Although I have been to Brisbane a few times, Rose took me to places I didn't know existed! I particularly liked the quirky little stories she had about some of the places and people from history. 3 hours is quite a tiring walk in the heat. Rose considered the age of the group.

What a wonderful way to spend a morning! Although I was the only person, Leanne was happy to show me a part of Brisbane through a well informed walking tour - which I duplicated for my husband in the afternoon. Thoroughly recommend this tour - a great way to find out more about Brisbane.
