Reviewed 9 March 2012

We decided to so something different on our date night, and chose the walking tour. It was interesting, funny and got us discussing Melbourne! Also makes you look up and enjoy our beautiful buildings.
Can't wait to do the Crime Tour now!

“Informative and entertaining use of technology”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

A good marriage of mobile phone technology and interest in historical activities around Melbourne. Allows for participation at own pace. Families should enjoy this sort of activity because of the 'investigative' nature which makes learning fun.

“Interesting snapshot of Melbourne's history based on events at the time”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

The facts aren't hard facts, yet provide for some interesting insights and lengthy lunch or dinner conversations when people (interested in Melbourne's history) get together and share their experience; from the Cup Day Police Strike to the Tasty Nightclub raids where the court awarded $4 million in damages to the patrons against Victoria Police. Interesting tour to be done at Melbourne's CBD, and you have a week to complete once ordered.
