Yummy walking tour
Casccw, Dec 2021
We experienced coffee, dumplings, chocolate, gelato, Vietnamese pork roll and a wine - all deliciously good- walking was really only a small distance. Good learn a bit about Melbournes history and about the food. If you don’t drink coffee heads up to organize something else instead
Best food tour in Melbourne

Fun knowledgeable guide and we got to know areas we hadn’t seen before Different food in each stop off and a good group
A Rip-Off
Janice_C, Mar 2020
A total RIFF-OFF and one of the worst tours I have gone food wise. It was very expensive for what we got and should have been 1/2 the price as the food was cheap and nasty. Although the tour guide Monique was extremely knowledgeable, the food on the tour was cheap and nondescript and a disgrace to Melbourne. (Melbourne is the food capital of Australia). Firstly if you wanted to serve something Australian - you will bundle up vegemite and meat pie in one go not offer it as 2 tastings. It was a cheap shot. There should be tastings of multicultural cuisine like Italian etc instead of just Chinese dumplings. Instead of going to a macaroon shop you could stop for coffee and cake. Very poor. The guide was excellent just the quality of the food and the tastings. You could even widen the area.

Karina_W, Feb 2020
A fantastic tour offering some really interesting information about the history of Melbourne combined with great food and drink. Would totally recommend to anyone visiting Melbourne, even if you have been here before like we had.
Great way to explore the inner city.
Susan_W, Feb 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed the food walking tour of Melbourne CBD. Sue our tour guide was wonderful. She was friendly and very knowledgeable about the inner city. We saw things you would never notice if walking around on your own. Loved exploring the various lane ways and will definitely explore them a lot more next time we are in Melbourne. The pie, dumplings, coffee and macaroons were very tasty. Don’t expect this tour to be all about and eating loads of food because it’s not. You discover lots of great and quirky places. Thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to discover inner Melbourne a bit more and get great information about some of the the history of Melbourne.
Interesting and informative.
michelle, Jan 2020
We can thoroughly recommend this tour. Our guide was very friendly and informative and made the tour very interesting with her local knowledge. We went to places we would never have found on our own. It was also nice to meet the other people on the tour.
I did this tour with my parents, and...
Chad K, May 2018
I did this tour with my parents, and while it was interesting, it really wasn't so much a food tour as it was a walking tour which was our expectation - so we left hungrier than we expected to be. We did get to see some fun, hidden parts of Melbourne, and our guide was very gracious.
