    Our guide Martina was an absolute delight during this stroll through Melbourne's beginnings, lanes, shopping culture and gastronomic treats. For everyone who is a little shy going to new restaurants this is a great introduction to what Melbourne has to offer. I now have a dozen must revisit bars, restaurants and shops that I never would have known about! We also had a lovely group to share a wonderful few hours with. I would highly recommend this tour!
