I have called Melbourne home for over 60 years yet I still discovered things about my home town I didn't know. Jess was very interesting.
Meet your guide in Federation Square and set out to explore Melbourne’s famous laneways, filled with boutique shops, atmospheric cafes, and beautiful 19th-century shopping arcades.
During the tour, experience the many different sides of Melbourne from the elegant architecture of the Royal Arcade to the bold street art of Hosier Lane, to historic landmarks such as Melbourne Town Hall. Accompanied by a local guide, you have plenty of opportunities to ask for recommendations on where to eat, drink, or shop during the rest of your stay in the city.
Finally, experience Melbourne’s cafe culture with a tea, coffee, and chocolate tasting at a local cafe. If you select the optional upgrade, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
Your tour ends back at Federation Square, where you’ll receive a goodie bag as a souvenir of your tour.
