A night walk through Melbourne city with lots of information from the guide. Hidden alleys and history are told by a guide who is familiar with the area. The guide also brought an IPad so we could actually see the people in her stories. Interesting history with the chance to talk to a ghost and take photos where a haunting is known to take place.

A great way to discover hidden parts of Melbourne. Our guide Chloe really knew her stuff. She was very informative and made the tour fun and interesting. Highly recommend.

Charlotte made our tour very enjoyable! She was entertaining and theatrical with her stories and we enjoyed the tour very much!

Jason was very knowledgeable and it was great to hear the stories he had about the various locations on the tour.

Timia was a great guide, awesome experience, highly recommend.
