    If you are a local you must do this tour!
    Kathy took us on such a great tour of the Hidden bars in Melbourne. She just went with the flow. If we wanted to stop and have an extra drink somewhere she was happy to oblige. It was such a great night and as a Melbournian I now know somewhere cool to go for a drink in the city!

    Loving the Laneway tour!
    We did this tour on our first morning in Melbourne with our two teenagers. Kathy provided us with a fantastic tour, keeping all of us engaged and eager for more information. Great way to get your bearings and discover places we would never have found on our own. We had done this tour 6 years ago, and it was even better second time around.

    The best tour to find the hidden gems of Melbourne.
    We had the best time being introduced to the hidden bars of Melbourne. We live in Melbourne and felt like a tourist in our own town. San was the best guide so knowledgeable about Melbourne and pointed many things out to us. Can’t wait to do another tour with MELTours.

    This tour gave us so much insight to Melbourne and made our trip memorable
    Did this fantastic tour in September, we learnt lot about Melbourne, it’s laneways, street art, food and architecture. I’ve been to Melbourne a number of times and until this tour had no idea about these hidden treasures. The tour enabled us to add some additional sites to see to our visit and made our trip memorable. Our guide Kathy was fabulous. Highly recommend this tour.

    Quirky Melbourne.
    Had to change our original date and San changed it happily. Both of us had a wonderful morning, learning so much more about Melbourne, including the indigenous history. Not too strenuous and finishing up at Mr Tulk restaurant for lunch. We would not have found all the quirky places that San knows. Thanks San, would do it again.
