About
Looking for an exclusive experience for your family, office, or club? Rent a professional guide for 3 hours to start and finish at the place & time of your choosing. At the start of the tour, your guide will work with you to set the itinerary. Want us to focus on street art? Laneways? Sport? Want to try dumplings in Chinatown? Coffee at an iconic cafe? Cocktails on a rooftop? No worries! Just let us know when you book and we’d be happy to accommodate. Not sure what to do? We'll take you on Melbourne's highlights, spending 3 hours covering the best our city has to offer - street art, historic arcades, iconic laneways, Chinatown, and Melbourne's oldest jail. When you make your booking please include any special requests, as well as where you would like the tour to start from (pickup available from any city location — we'll use public transport to navigate through the city).

The best walking tour in town
May 2021
Not sure if this was the Tour - this was just myself and a charming Italian lady - and of course, John. I know Melbourne a little (I live in Sydney) but I wanted someone with more insider knowledge. I didn't want to miss Laneways and stuff. John was a great guide and host - even treated us to a coffee part way through and an optional drink in a college bar at the end. In the 3 hours we walked, we say everything I could have wanted - architecture, gardens, shops (and Laneways!) and I came away feeling I really do know a bit more about the City. Highly recommended.

Great city Tour
Mar 2020 • Couples
Really enjoyed touring Melbourne with John. He filled us in on the history and culture of the city and took us on a tour which incorporated great coffee, back streets of bars and restaurants, and history of Melbourne. With limited time we had a great introduction to a great city.

Matilda was our guide. We had a great time getting to know a little about Melbourne through her knowledge and humor of the city. The walking pace could have been a bit more leisurely, so we could enjoy the sights and scenery better.
