At Melbourne By Foot we offer a range of small group tours that highlight the city's past and present. We are passionate Melburnians with a vision of sharing local knowledge and experience with visitors and natives alike. Our tours are listed below:
We've packaged together the best parts of the city in an entertaining and informative tour which looks at everything from Aboriginal and colonial history through to modern aspects of marvellous Melbourne including our famed laneways and arcades - home to vibrant street art, music and cafe culture. Architectural diversity and immigration history are other highlights of the tour.
Much more than just a sighseeing tour, we will show you the best of Melbourne and give you an insight on what has made Melbourne such a unique, diverse and magnetic destination.
The tour departs from Federation Square. More information and booking here.
Melbourne By Foot is able to provide group and private tours catered to your specific needs. From a small intimate tour for two up to larger school, university and corporate groups.
We can customise an experience to suit your needs. Whether it be for a working group looking for a fun activity outside of the office or a school group seeking a tour tied in with their current educational curriculum. In the past we have organised fun and informative treasure hunts, corporate activities, beer & chocolate tastings among an array of alternative tour options.
Please get in contact with us to discuss your request.
The Beer Lovers Guide to Melbourne is a fun look at the city's beer and pub history. One of the founding fathers was a publican and our first mayor was a brewer. The drinking habits of the city's population has changed radically through time from conservative war time habits through to liberal licensing with the birth of laneway bars and the recent explosion of craft/microbreweries.
The tour is punctuated by four stops to expose guests to some of the delicious craft beer coming from this part of the world. A history lesson with beer!
The tour runs by appointment only. More information here.
