Experience the diversity that is our city. Connect with our laneways and arcades, street art and gold rush history


Melbourne boasts a Rags to Riches story that endures to this day. Even from its early days Melbourne became one of the great cities of the world within 50 years of settlement. Today it remains full of hidden treasures for us to uncover. It is little wonder that Melbourne was voted the world's most liveable city 7 years in a row.
Prior to our tour I will discuss what aspects of Melbourne you are interested in. This will allow me to plan something unique.
We begin our small private exploration by driving past some of the iconic landmarks of Melbourne.
We then plunge into the heart of the city and experience, by both tram and foot, the inner workings of this diverse city. We explore the laneways and cafes and discover why the people of Melbourne love to eat out during our lunch stop over. Our multicultural population means an impressive diversity in food is available.
