Featured Guest Review:

Excellent tour. Chris had a wealth of interesting information and clearly loved talking about his town. The coffee was an added bonus. It was exactly what we wanted to see in Melbourne and Chris was a fabulous guide. Carolyn

4. Melbourne Coffee and Cafes Walking Tour

Melburnians love their cafes, but one can be packed with a queue down the street, while the one next door sits virtually empty. Why? It’s a complex equation of barista credentials, great beans, an aspirational décor and a healthy dash of street cred. Put simply: some have it, some don’t. Discover several of the most amazing inner-city cafes on this guided walking tour.

5. Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Walking Tour

For fans of the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries books and acclaimed ABC television series, this tour is a wonderful way to step back in time to the ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ of the 1920s. Enjoy a fabulous afternoon tea with fellow Miss Fisher devotees, a walking tour of locations from the television series, and a cocktail to wrap up the afternoon. How very Phryne!
