Full description

Sip a delicious cup of coffee, sample some sublime dumplings and sneak in a sweet treat (or two!) before finishing it all off with a drink at a bar the locals love. Discover some of Melbourne’s hidden highlights, tucked down lanes, alleys and arcades off the main streets. Hear about the history of the city and the future of the city while tasting some delicious morsels along the way. Your expert guide will provide the key to a variety of fun spots. Even locals may discover a few new sites! Go to one of the city's grand 19th-century arcades, and dive down grungy looking alleys filled with street art.

This is an excellent tour of Moonlit Conservatory & Phillip island. Mehmet was our guide & he was a great driver & full of interesting facts about Melbourne, Phillip island and the animals we saw. I only had 3 days in Melbourne & I am so glad I took this tour!

If you’re going to be arriving after a long flight from anywhere, highly recommend this tour to keep you awake, beautifully fed, and engaged. Monique is the best of the best! Each stop included a delightful morsel (or more) and interesting historical perspective. The only caution I would say is don’t eat too much before the tour - they really mean a very light lunch be consumed well before the tour as there is plenty of food and beverage to consume. 100% recommend

We had the most interesting and fun afternoon with Monique as our guide. She was a mine of information on all sorts of topics: Melbourne history, geography, architecture, coffee, dumplings, you name it! She adapted her talks to our interests as well. It was great fun and a worthwhile experience. I'd definitely recommend it.
