Featured guest review:

‘I did this American Food Tour a couple of months ago with guide Leonie and one other couple. I really liked the stops for food – especially the bagel place that was tucked away in a hidden spot, and the cheesesteak at the end! The stories told along the way were entertaining and everyone was good company.’ Alejandro R

What you can expect

Get a taste of the US of A-inspired taste sensations sweeping the Victorian capital on this American Food Tour of Melbourne. It’s fantastically tasty fun!

You’ll meet your local guide at the famous Queen Victoria Market for a relaxed walk through the market halls to find out how the city’s amazing cuisine gets from paddock to plate. [More]

The first opportunity to chow down on this American Food Tour of Melbourne comes at a classic all-American diner, which serves amazing burgers and more.

The next stops will introduce you to the cheesesteak and slow smoked BBQ meat phenomenons that are sweeping the city. All in all, you’ll enjoy at least four tastings along the way, so bring your appetite!

The tour wraps up in uber-cool Fitzroy — one of the top spots to enjoy Melbourne’s street art and cafe scenes. You’ll finish the tour satiated and possibly ready to kick on at one of Brunswick Street’s plethora of trendy bars.

    The USA food tour of Melbourne was amazing! Evan our guide was awesome, he knew all the right places to take us and gave us an in depth look at the American food trend growing in Melbourne! I now know where to send my friends on their next day out in the city! Fantastic!
