‘Our guide was great. She gave us lots of information about the waves of immigration to Australia and it really put the foodie part of the tour into context. I knew why we were eating what we were eating, and how it represents Melbourne’s culture. I loved this tour. It has actually been my favourite part of the whole trip!’
