The tour guide we had wasn't very good - he didn't deliver the stories well. I often got the feeling when he recounted an anecdote, half the story had been missed or lines forgotten. Sometimes the info was contradictory or just didn't make sense. Got...More

A group of about 20 were lead by Constable Townsend up alleys and lanes in the China Town vicinity. He did an outstanding job pointing out and describing in an often humouress manner the locations of macabre and other seamy events in early Melbourne.

Great and some gruesome stories of Old Melbourne's murderous past woven into a 90 minute walk through the lanes and streets in Chinatown. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

I have grown up in Melbourne but didn't know about all of these stories. The guide was very knowledgeable and had some great stories to tell. Interesting tour of Melbourne.

Well, who would have thought that THAT happened there? You will need to go to find out. A great way to see all the nooks and crannies of the back streets of Melbourne Chinatown.

Great tour to learn a bit of Melbourne's history and see lots of alley ways we never knew existed. Very interesting to hear some pretty twisted stories and see what a lot of Melbourne's old buildings were used for. The guides were awesome. Thanks!
