Featured guest review:

‘We had a fabulous time on our small group tour around the Melbourne CBD, trying Indian food and visiting a spice shop. Both the spice shop and one of the restaurants I would have walked past many times and not realised they were there. Himanshi was a wonderful guide, full of stories and extensive information about India. I would highly recommend this tour.’ MissApples

    This walking tour was good, with just the right amount of walking between venues. The food information was interesting, and I liked visiting the shops and looking around between the food venues. The atmosphere was relaxed and the variety of food was great. I tried things I would generally never order. All in all, it was a good day out!

    I was gifted a lone ticket for this tour, so I was a little nervous but was soon chatting to people in the group easily. We first went to have some brunch at a little cafe where all the food was explained. It was delicious. Then we went on to a grocer where we basically took over the shop while the guide behind the counter explained all the foods and spices. As we walked to the next restaurant, we started discussing pop culture in India, the different languages, clothing, furniture and anything else you can think of! Our guide Epsy was great and there was more food than I could eat. Dietary requirements were happily catered for and the food did not stop coming until everyone said stop!
