After living in beautiful Melbourne for 25 years - I finally went on a walking tour. Our guide Talaska was excellent in uncovering Melbourne's special secrets and stories. I didn't realise how little I knew about my home town! Our guide was a great storyteller - with wonderful "human" and quirky stories - not just facts. Importantly, our guide placed Melbourne's recent story in the context of the First Nation people. I'd highly recommend this tour to locals and visitors alike.

A highly recommended tour uncovering some hidden laneways gems, some you wouldn’t be game to venture down if you didn’t know better. Great to learn about the history of the lanes and how they have helped the restaurant, live music and small bar scene in the city cementing Melbourne as a cool and vibrant destination. Andreas was a knowledgeable guide and kept the pace just right.

Excellent tour that takes you through a recent Melbourne history and points out interesting facts about the city, laneways, street art, coffee culture, live music and the many bars that are in the city. In 1.5 hrs. you will learn why is Melbourne the way it is and who, why and what contributed to its charm. Very enjoyable experience, would definitely recommend to anyone who is keen to explore or re-explore this city!
