Start your tour at the Eureka Skydeck, an 88-storey skyscraper that is home to stunning views of the city. Your guide brings you to the top of the tower, pointing out key points of interest in the city and previewing your next stop. After coming back down to earth, it’s time to dive into the cityscape.
Next, we explore Melbourne’s famous street art scene. What used to simply be called “graffiti” has become a trendy artistic style, and the laneways of this city are filled with constantly evolving murals. Your guide brings you to some of their favourites and explains how the movement has developed, exploring the work of these back alley artists until you’ve worked up an appetite.
And what better way to meet that appetite than with Melbourne’s multicultural food scene? Your guide takes you to their favourite local restaurant for a hearty sample of one of the many cuisines Melbourne is known for. Here your guide tells you about the numerous waves of migrants who have helped to create the Melbourne we see today.
After you’ve finished eating, we grab a coffee. Your guide explains what makes Melbourne coffee unique, what to look for in a barista, and some of the vocabulary to use when ordering a coffee. Then, put your knowledge to the test by ordering a brew and enjoying it with your group.
We finish with a tram ride down to Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Market, where your guide introduces you to the market and then leaves you to explore on your own. By the end of your tour, you’re able to spot amazing art, cafés, restaurants, and bars like a local. But if you still need more tips, your local guide is happy to offer up some suggestions for the rest of your stay.

Leoni was quite passionate about guiding and was keen on making sure we learn as much as possible about Melbourne. She took us to her favourite spots for coffee and dumplings which were fantastic and it definitely is a tour I will recommend for anyone going to Melbourne.
