Full description
Explore the food and wine scene of Melbourne on an exciting culinary walk, and experience a gastronomic culture that borders on the obsessive! Sip a delicious cup of coffee, sample some sublime dumplings and sneak in a sweet treat (or two!) before finishing it all off with a drink at a bar the locals love. Discover some of Melbourne’s hidden highlights, tucked down lanes, alleys and arcades off the main streets. Hear about the history of the city and the future of the city while tasting some delicious morsels along the way. Your expert guide will provide the key to a variety of fun spots. Even locals may discover a few new sites! Go to one of the city's grand 19th-century arcades, and dive down grungy looking alleys filled with street art. Venture into small lanes steeped in local history and filled with cafés and boutique stores. Encounter an underground art gallery, and end with a drink to toast the end of the tour at a bar the locals love!

Melinda was great and we learned new things about the history of the CBD which was quite interesting. While we learned history of the different food types around and we tried a few places, as a ‘local’ the places we tried weren’t really hidden gems in our opinion. It was still a good day and we met some really nice people as well.

Fabulous- highly recommended

I have been to Melbourne at least ten times and as this a first for my partner I thought it would be a good introduction to the city. I was amazed at how little I really knew about the history and landmarks as well as the many interesting lanes and arcades.Our guide was Monique who maintained a cheerful and enthusiastic attitude throughout the walk which made it fun and interesting . I would thoroughly recommend it as it is also a small group ( 10max) which made it easy to hear and get around .

Great insight into Melbourne inner city culture by a local.

A view of the street art to the history and architecture with a tasting of street food and drinks in a walk around the inner city of Melbourne. I was lucky I had a one on one, so a personalised interaction between me & the guide allowed the information to be directed to me and not having to wait for others in a group.
