pretty ordinary
Bruce_M, May 2022
We visited the South Melbourne markets because the Queen Victoria markets were not open that day. Our guide, Tristan said he was less familiar with these markets but reassured us that they were good to visit. The markets are definitely worth a visit but largely we felt we could have made our own way around them without a guide and would have had just as good a time. Apart from a small number of places where we were welcomed by the owners who talked to us about their businesses and showcased what they had to offer, most shops were just random visits without any pre-arranged presentations. Having done other food tours in Australia and overseas, we were left with the impression that, with more preparation and more dynamic delivery, the tour would have represented much better value for money. Overall, it was disappointing and definitely not value for money.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hello Bruce - thank you for taking the time to share your experience and leave a review. We rely on our travellers’ feedback as it’s a firsthand insight into what is happening on our tours. You can be assured that everyone, from our head office team, to our guides and operators, endeavours to provide a trip which not only lets you see a wonderful destination but really experience it. As such, we sincerely appreciate your constructive comments with the alternative South Melbourne Market when unfortunately, the Queen Vic Markets were closed due to current construction and upgrades. We do aim to provide a great alternative itinerary when something does not go as planned as we know travel can sometimes be like that. These have been shared with all the appropriate personnel within the business to review. Thank you again.
Long walk to the market unnecessary
Pam_K, May 2022
It gave a different story to the market. I felt we could have seen more of the market. I fell the cost was a little high for what we did.
Disappointing and expensive!!!
Kristina_H, May 2022
The guide was highly knowledgeable in the history of the markets and Melbourne surrounds. The quality of the food offered for tasting was adequate but the variety and quantity was minimal. The tour meeting point was more than 30 minutes walk away from the venue. The cost and title of the tour was very misleading. Congratulations to Tristan for making the best out of a difficult and unrewarding food tour.
Great experience
Mark_S, Apr 2022

Andrew_K, Jan 2022
Wasn’t to keen on doing this tour has we had already walked a lot of Melbourne a couple of days prior, I was wrong couldn’t believe how much more I hadn’t seen of Melbourne, Tristan was awesome and we learnt and saw so many different parts of the city if it wasn’t for the tour👍🏻
Great day in our home town
