What you can expect

For this Melbourne Food and Wine Walking Tour you’ll meet your local guide in the city centre and head off on foot to begin your progressive dining experience. Melbourne’s restaurant scene is incredibly diverse, so the venues visited change from tour to tour, but all are carefully selected to complement each other and provide a well-rounded culinary experience.

None of the eateries on this Melbourne Food and Wine Walking Tour are more than 15 minute’s walk from each other, so you’ll enjoy a relaxed and unhurried pace as you stroll between venues through the CBD’s eclectic laneways and arcades. At each of the three restaurants you’ll enjoy three savoury food tastings and three wine tastings (known as a ‘flight’).

At each venue on this Melbourne Food and Wine Walking Tour you’ll also have the opportunity to engage with staff to discuss the food and wine, along with the history, design, décor and ethos of their establishment. This information will complement the general commentary provided by your guide throughout the tour.

Please note: You could potentially consume the equivalent of four glasses of wine in a three-hour period during this experience. In the interests of safety and the responsible consumption of alcohol, participants are advised not to drive after this tour.
