We started the tour learning about the very interesting history of Melbourne and how it came to be. Then proceeded to walk many of the little laneways, observing and exploring secret corners, beautiful art deco buildings, and hidden away boutique shops. It was great to discover so much of Melbourne that we didn't know.

The chocolate tour was very enjoyable. We had a lovely time visiting each place and sampling the chocolate. Our tour guide Amanda was very knowledgeable and had a great rapport which made our tour a lot of fun. Would highly recommend this tour.
