Out of all the tours we took throughout Australia, this was our favorite! Our guide was really knowledgable, and catered the tour to all of us. We saw and drank our way through! some amazing coffee shops, restaurants and small boutiques. The most amazing was having coffee at the ground floor of the Ambassador from Monaco's residence. Too coo!

Much more than just a coffee tour. Yes, you'll learn about the low-key coffee shops and cafes that are down alleys with barely any signage. But you'll also learn a bit about Melbourne's history. The tour guide was enthusiastic, fun and informative. And by the way, the coffee is fantastic!

This was also a very interesting tour with Sarah as a great guide once again. She took us to some iconic Melbourne coffee shops and also showed us many places to eat and have food in the real Melbourne style. I did go to quite a few of the places she recommended on my days in the city.
