“Great way to get started”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

Having only 2-3 days in Melbourne we wanted to get the most out of our time, touched down in the airport at 11, on the walking tour by 1pm, boom! Dave was a really engaging and friendly guide, looked like he belonged hanging out in one of the hidden cafes he brought us past down Melbs bustling laneways. Really good mix of Aussie history, local artwork and community projects (the bells were an unexpected treat). Got lots of good shots that are now plastered all over facebook making others very jealous! I don't think we would have found many of the hidden gems the city has to offer were it not for the tour, also gave us a good grounding and didn't get lost at all afterwards! I would also highly recommend popping up the skydeck after the tour and having a pint whilst watching the sun set and the city lights coming on, well worth it.

“Fun and interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

My 15 year old son who is a keen photographer and I went on the walking tour with Dave and had a fantastic insight into the history, culture and architecture of Melbourne. Loved visiting the laneways and enjoyed Dave's wealth of knowledge about Melbourne and humour. Would definitely recommend this walking tour!!

“Exploring Melbourne made easy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

This tour is extremely good, our guide Dave was extremely knowledgeable on all things Melbourne. We were extremely impressed with the wide variety of things which we were shown and talked to about, such as the hidden street art, unique “Victorian” and modern architectural pieces, hip laneway bars and cafes as well as a brief history of the city. Dave was engaging but most importantly friendly. The tour was a highlight of our trip as it set us up for the rest of our stay, as afterwards we had a better understanding of our surroundings we knew of all the awesome things to see and do in Melbourne. Would reccomend to all!

“Well worth the effort.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

My partner was visiting from Sydney so we decided to learn more about the history of Melbourne. The three hour walking option was attractive but we did not really know what to expect for $35.

Dave met us at Federation Sqaure along with three other Melbourne visitors and we were thankful he was youngish and cool. Our three hour trip incorporated history of land, architecture, art, food, pubs, cafes, laneways etc. This info was delivered in a relaxed and enjoyable way. A stop at Brunetti's is a highlight not to be missed.

I highly recommend Dave's tour to visitors and locals alike.
