Meyer opened our eyes to the city of alleys. There are 200 alleys downtown giving us a look at the real Melbourne. Each has its own identity and story and Meyer knew all about them. Wish we could have done another tour with him.

Meyer was great and knowledgeable yet engaging. I have been living in the city for 3 years but didn't know it had so many layers. It was well worth the time and one should do a walk at least once during their time in Melbourne.
