Highly recommend. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Loved the Melbourne street art. We stopped for a delicious coffee and later a beer (included). Great way to get to know the city in a short amount of time.
Great for discovering Melbourne city!

Hugo was an excellent guide, bringing us to hidden laneways with beautiful street art which I normally wouldn't discover on my own. The walk was comfortably paced and enjoyable.
Wonderful tour

We loved the tour with Sarah! She gave us a great overview of the history of the city and showed us examples of architecture and the vibrant street art scene. Highly recommend!
Worth your time

We had a great time. Beau was a great leader, and we got a much better understanding of the history of Melbourne and what makes it tick. We made some new friends on our tour who are from Melbourne, and they were very engaging, as well. We didn’t realize that we’d be ending at the pub—a coffee during our walk and a beer at the end were included, which was especially awesome. Beau did a great job with our group!
Do yourself a favour!!

Beau was brilliant! He was very engaging and knew his stuff! Great range of places to feature in the tour.
Fabulous tour of the city with some surprises along the way.
Yvette_M, Feb 2023
Very informative walking tour, visited key sites of the city but also experienced many areas that would be difficult to find without the local knowledge. Some great little extras provided too, chocolate, coffee and a beer!
Fun in Melbourne

A Fantastic Tour with Sarah
Michael_K, Feb 2023
This was a fantastic tour—one of the best I’ve ever taken. Sarah is a superb tour guide. She took us to the best places and gave us great commentary on each one. She had a level of enthusiasm that was contagious and I feel I got to know and love this city.
A highlight of our Melbourne stay

The tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the history of the city and put across in a nice easy going manner. Took 3 hours to complete and included a short coffee break and a beer in the pub at the end.
Excellent Melbourne Walking Tour
Alan_W, Jan 2023
It was a fun group led by a superb tour guide Vicki. She is well-informed about Melbourne's cultural scenes and history, fun, perky and an absolute delight. I came to Melbourne focused mainly on seeing the tennis matches. By the time the tour was over, I was intrigued by the city overall, ready to explore on my own and also a little sad that the tour was completed. Alan Weintraub/Derwood, Maryland
Great intro to Melbourne

Sarah was a great guide showing us the sites of downtown Melbourne. She answered all of our questions.

snmelzig, Jan 2023
Our guide Sara was terrific but once again you creat havoc by not having an accurate meeting spot. The address was not correct. Just say ie on the steps of the courthouse or the park close by. Sara spent a lot of time on her phone trying to help people find the location. This has happened to us on other Viatour tours. Do a better job on meeting spots. The tour was terrific
Not worth it!
Pat_R, Jan 2023
This should be advertised as a Melbourne alleyway tour. There’s nothing more frustrating than walking by beautiful historic buildings as you hurry to go get a silly cup of coffee at noon. Parts of it looked like it was going to improve (the river area and Federation Square) before we were sadly disappointed. We spent most of our time walking around alleyways and hearing our guide, tell us that if we had time it would be wonderful to go see ……. Other than walking through a shopping area, we didn’t see much. We didn’t stay for the beer. The coffee took 30 minutes!
Great City Guide
Morag_C, Jan 2023
Suzanne, our guide, was great. We enjoyed the history that she knew so well and hearing her personal connections to the historical content. We feel like we’ve really had a great overview of this wonderful city.
Fantastic brief introduction to Melbourne.
Alan_S, Jan 2023
Sara provided an exceptional walking experience that was just packed with a variety of themes--history, personalities, art, dining, architecture, shopping. She was mindful of the strength of the UV rays 'down under' and kept us in the shade whenever practical. Then, we learned how short a time Sara had been 'in country' and guiding in Melbourne. We were just amazed at her knowledge and expertise.
A fun and informative 3 hours
Jim_G, Jan 2023
Sarah was great. A natural story teller, well learned and fun to be with. She kept a nice pace and answered all questions fully with a nice sense of humor
Karen_W, Jan 2023
We enjoyed our experience with Suzanne. We saw all the highlights of Melbourne with a knowledgeable guide.
Susan was the best tour guide!
henry_p, Jan 2023
Our guide Susan was wonderful. She made the tour interesting and fun. It could have been an ordinary tour, but Susan made it extraordinary! Melbourne came to life in this tour.
Marilena_G, Jan 2023
