The Guide, Dave was, humorous and full of information. Kept us on our toes and although have lived in Melbourne all of my life, there were interesting snippets that I wasn't aware of.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
