San was a wonderful guide. His vast knowledge about Melbourne, interesting and curious information about the laneways and surrounding buildings made the tour super fun and informative. Although we are from Melbourne, we thought it'd be fun to learn more about the city. Highly recommend.

Extremely enjoyable. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided great insights into the history of the wonderful buildings and laneways of Melbourne CBD. He also provided a great suggestion for our lunch post the tour :-)

Great informative walk with coffee and food! Perfect way to get out of the CBD and experience more of the local vibe.

The guide knew a lot about the art in melbourne. Was very competent. I enjoyed the chat with her.
