Melbourne Dumpling Walking Tour
US$63,03
Overview
Get a true taste of Melbourne’s food scene—and its delicious dumplings—on this 3-hour walking tour of Chinatown. Explore the vibrant neighborhood and stop at four eateries to sample their renowned dumplings. Between bites, learn about the history of Chinese immigrants in the city and how they’ve created their own distinct “Melbourne-Chinese” cuisine. Enjoy a small-group experience with personalized attention and a chance to know your fellow dumpling devotees.
What to Expect

Meet your guide at the entrance to Chinatown, where your dumpling walking tour begins. Before heading to your first stop, hear informative commentary from your guide about the history of Chinese immigration to Australia, which began in the 1850s. And as you explore various dumpling eateries, learn how the Chinese population influenced the city’s cuisine—and even created a “Melbourne-Chinese” adaptation that is much beloved by locals.

Enjoy an evening of eating as you sample specialty dumplings at four different venues and learn the process of dumpling making. If you dare, you can even try Melbourne’s hottest chili sauce on top of a dumpling. Compare tasting notes with your fellow dumpling fans—no more than 10 of them, as this small-group tour ensures a personalized experience.

After a light, satisfying meal and covering about 1 mile (1.6 kilometers), your tour ends in central Melbourne.
