Taste of Melbourne Walking Tour

‘Mum and I decided to spoil ourselves for our birthdays by doing this walking tour, and we were not disappointed! Kathy our guide was vibrant, enthusiastic and so informative about Melbourne’s culinary history. We learnt so much about the city and now know where to find great coffee, amazing cheeses and yummy samosas. The tour ended with a delicious lunch at Chocolate Buddha in Fed Square. I would highly recommend this tour.’

    What a great morning/arvo walking the streets of Melbourne tasting food and learning about the city’s food culture. Kathy was amazing! She was so knowledgeable, and you could really see she enjoyed food just as much as we on the tour did! I met lovely people and coincidentally wound up bumping into them at Murmur – a fabulous piano bar playing the lines of Billy Joel to Bon Jovi. So much fun! Thank you Kathy for recommending it. 5 stars from me!

    Kathy was our guide on this tour. It was a wonderful and different way to learn a little more of the history of this lovely city through the culinary culture of the immigrants who came here and made Melbourne their home. We had a fantastic tour with some yummy tastes of an eclectic range of foods and finished with a lovely lunch at Chocolate Buddha in Federation Square. Thank you, Kathy. Your commentary was great!
