The tastiest of tours
Nov 2021 • Couples
Brilliant tour of QV market this morning! As a local who regularly shops at the market I figured I knew the place, but our tour-guide Carmel taught us so much more about the buildings, people and produce. The store owners were generous with their time and tips for cooking, and of course the tastings were divine. Highly recommend!

Excellent tastings and chatting to vendors. An informative and well guided tour, a variety of stalls and quality tastings. Plus vouchers, bag etc, all combined to make it time and money well spent.

Good but over priced
Jul 2021 • Couples
My hubby and I were very excited about this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly which made the experience memorable. The information about the market and having the opportunity to chat to stall owners was cool. We would have loved to learn more about the fruit and veggie aspect, but did love the fact that the tour was tailored to suit the specific group audience - amazing! A disappointing aspect was the price. It is very steep for what you get. It is definitely a great experience and every Melbournian should do it, but the price is just too costly. Please consider lowering this price nd having children free. They should not have to pay. In doing this we do think you would be flat out each day the market is open which is how it should be!!

A great way to spend two hours and learn about our City
Jul 2021
What a great 2 hours we spent exploring the Queen Vic Market with our experienced guide. She was so knowledgeable and explained the history of the market from it very beginnings and how it had changed over the decades. The tastings were very varied, with some very unusual offerings! It was a small group of 8 people which made it easy to ask questions and interact with the other participants.

Delightful experience
Jun 2021
Our guide Irene was lovely. We learned so much about the history of the Market, met many of the stall holders, who in turn told us their personal stories, which we all found to be passionate, interesting and entertaining. We received samples of goodies and lots of tastings of yummy foods.

Fabulous foodie experience at the Victoria market
May 2021 • Friends
What delightful, informative, delicious experience this was. We met characters from the market today , but learned much about its history and also its future. We attended as part of a meetup event and it was fabulous from meeting max the butcher committed to respecting the whole animal, to the enthusuastic fishmongers , to hot donuts, to cheese tastings and finishing with mulled wine and Coffee. What a fabulous day !!!

Definitely one for the foodies
Feb 2021
Absolutely love doing this tour. Our tour guild Carmel has had 19 years experience within the market so she knew all the ins and outs. After many years coming to the market it was lovely to learn the history behind it and meet the family's who have been there for many years. Best part was being able to try some off the foods from both the fresh meat and seafood section plus the deli part too. We had some favourites so we had to go back the following day to buy because we love them that much.
