Melbourne, a hidden gem
Dec. 2019
A MUST DO TOUR
We are born and bred Melbournians and loved every minute of this secret life that Melbourne hides from our very eyes! Monqiue was marvelous, friendly and engaging and we really enjoyed the history she gave us. Vegemite on toast, old art deco buildings, graffiti, lane-way fashion stores, underground train stations with history (sadly history to be demolished in new constructions), coffee - oh Melbourne coffee; dumplings, pies, what more could you want? Definitely wear comfy shoes as you stand and walk a fair bit. But love this city we call home.

Such a great experience!
Mar. 2020
We loved the Melbourne Foodie walking tour! We got to try a lot of awesome foods and drinks and they did an amazing job of accomodating my celiac disease, I still felt like I got my money's worth! The Macarons were the best I have EVER had, the coffee was delightful and I ended up buying a lot of awesome treats to bring home from many of the shops we visited. Our guide was lovely and we were lucky enough to be the only two people on the tour so we got to spend extra time in the places we liked the most. MUST DO!

Delightful afternoon tasting Australian favorites as well as unique specialties. Honey tasting, mackerel dumplings, and delicious macaroons that rival what is available in France. Enjoyed the history and culture insights as well as the food!

Didn't Want it to End!
Feb. 2020
What a treat it was for our group to spend a few hours walking the streets with Monique. From amazing coffee, to honey, to meat pies and even a vegemite sandwich - she was first rate! Interesting, knowledgeable, affable and well spoken. Keep doing the great work doing. We will definitely be bringing a group back and would not miss this experience.

Monique Rocks!
Feb. 2020
The tour guide makes the trip and lucky for us, Monique made the day for us.
Beyond the food (which was wonderful) we learned Melbourne's history and culture along the way and in a style that makes it hard to forget. Towards the end, Monique told us we had really stayed in a 2 block square area (with dozen of twist and turns) and I was floored.
The food was great, from the meat pies to our honey and candy stops. Foodie tours are a bit pricey, but no regrets here!

Amazing way to see the real city!
We visited Melbourne with friends and this trip turned out to be an unexpected hi light of our tour. Melinda our guide was engaging, knowledgeable and humorous. We explored the city’s lanes and eateries whilst learning lots of hidden secrets that we’d never have discovered on our own. The best food for me was Shandong Mamma Mini..... Dumplings to die for! Thank you Melinda. It was a real pleasure.
