Highly recommended! I'm really glad I did this given the short amount of time I had to experience Melbourne. I saw buildings, lanes and arcades I probably wouldn't have stumbled upon if left to my own devices. Tons of great Kodak moments and I learned a lot about the history and architecture of Melbourne. Very informative!
Have been to Melbourne many times but this was the first time we did the walking tour. Chris was outstanding and so knowledgable. His passion for the city shone through on a drizzly Melbourne day. I recommend it to all visitors.

This was a great tour , our guide Chis was very knowledgeable, it was a great way to learn about Melbourne and its history, very enjoyable.
I booked this in an effort to push through the jetlag on my first day in Melbourne and it was fantastic. For a modern city there plenty of history to learn. Graffiti sites are brilliant and our guide was so helpful in making recommendations for the rest of your time there
A thoroughly enjoyable tour, we saw and visited place/things we never would have seen without a guided walking tour. Our guide Chris was really interesting and had a vast knowledge of all things 'Melbourne'. I would thoroughly recommend doing this tour on the first day of a trip to Melbourne, then heading back to investigate the interesting little arcades and laneways that intrigued.
I have done a number of walking tours in different places and find them a great way to find out more about a location. This was another such experience and I was able to learn about the history of the areas we walked through with certain features identified that the casual eye may not have noticed. Chris was able to share info re Melbourne past and present and with the speed of turnover in the street art in the Laneways even he was treated to something new! He was able to keep diverse interests tweaked from the different folks on the tour. Thanks, Chris for an enjoyable few hours. :
Despite a cloudy afternoon, threatening rain, we had a wonderfully paced tour covering so many aspects of Melbourne. With a great mixture of history, culture, architecture and the changing scenes of Melbourne, we were assisted to see a lot more than we had ever perceived. we appreciated the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas as we walked.
Fantastic well coordinated yours with a knowledgeable guide and a spectacular look at the city! I would highly recommend to anyone.
Amazing! The tour guide was very informative, really recommend doing this trip at the beginning of your trip to Melbourne as you then know the ins and outs of where to go! Chris, our guide was absolutely fantastic!
We saw everything that was promised in the description. The tour guide was very good and informative. Thanks for offering the walking tour, we saw parts of Melbourne that the other people in our group did not see.
Following a mistake on my part on the start time Chris could have not been more helpful in re-organising another tour. The tour was a great insight into Melbourne and its culture and highly recommended
We spent three perfect hours with Dave, who gave us a wonderful overview of Melbourne history and character. The mid-tour refreshment break added to the experience.

We spent the perfect three hours with Dave. He provided an excellent overview of Melbourne's history and character.
We spent a delightful three hours with Dave, who did a great job providing an overview of Melbourne's history and character. We never would have appreciated either as well, without this tour. The mid-tour refreshment break was very appreciated, too. I highly recommend this tour for first-time visitors to Melbourne.
Chris was extremely knowledgable and it was obvious that he is passionate about the city and its history and culture. Chris was very welcoming and easy to talk to along the way.
I have visited Melbourne numerous times but have never learnt about the city itself. I would recommend the tour to anyone
You may walk past lanes and buildings but do you know the history and social significance? Guide was full of historical facts and anecdotes.
Awesome tour. Recommended to anyone visiting Melbourne, even if they have been there before. The history is interesting and delivered in an entertaining way.
Excellent tour by very knowledgeable and interesting guide. I would strongly recommend.

As a resident of Melbourne for more than 30 years I was taken to places I had never seen before. Tour guide was great.
Great host, provided lots of tales about Old Melbourne and new info about the buildings and the environment.
