Described as a ‘comprehensive highlight of Melbourne’, this tour is a must for any visitor and local here in the city. We look at Melbourne’s past by learning about Aboriginal history, the settlement of Melbourne and early colonial life.
The tour is a highlight of the cultural aspects of modern-day Melbourne. We venture through Melbourne’s laneways and arcades, discovering street art, music & café culture as well as some opulent and sometimes controversial architecture.
