What you'll do

Starting at the 'Paris' end of Melbourne we'll explore some of Melbourne's best food spots for you to come back to visit on your stay. On our walk throughout the maze of lane-ways, you will find hidden bars and rooftops that make this city so colourful.
After a visit to one of Melbourne's coolest little local stores where we can sample some local honey, we'll eventually make it into the heart of the city where we'll meet our Coffee Barista. They'll teach us the art of making the perfect Melbourne coffee then give you a chance to try making one yourself!
Other things to note
Make sure you bring your camera, comfortable shoes and a bottle of water. With the Melbourne weather, it's possible you'll need both sunscreen & an umbrella in the one day, so be prepared for that!

Born and bred in Melbourne, I've travelled the world and been a Tour Guide throughout Europe and Asia. I'm now home and love love love showing off my city to visitors from around the world, making sure no-one leaves without getting the full Melbourne experience.
With me you'll get a self confessed coffee drinking hipster, complete with skinny black jeans and a loveable beard, giving you the full Melbourne experience :)
There's no doubt you'll fall in love with my city, that you'll never want to leave.

PS: I also have a 'St Kilda - Beach, Cakes and Penguins' tour you may want to add on!

Where you'll be

Starting at the top end of Melbourne, also know as the Paris end, we'll make our way through the lane-ways that are scattered with hidden treasures.
And then it's off to Flinders lane (aka foodies heaven) before making it to the heart of the city for our coffee making class.
The tour will end in the vibrant part of town on Collins st, out front of the Melbourne Town Hall.

This should be the first tour you go for in the city. Our guide Chris introduced key places to chill and dine, which could inform your plans. We got a brief on the coffee culture in Melbourne, and also got to use the espresso machine to make coffee. Authentic experience!

I spontaneously booked this tour at the last minute and I am so glad I did! I have visited Melbourne quite a few times but this walking tour experience has made this my favorite trip to date. Chris is warm, inviting and the best tour guide you’ll come across. It was an absolute pleasure and blast hanging out. The coffee making class was a lot of fun and a great way to wrap up a fun afternoon.

As newbies to Melbourne, meeting with Chris was super helpful and exciting! Chris was full of knowledge regarding history of the city, insightful information, and most importantly about the great food and drinks Melbourne has to offer. We loved Chris’s personality and his love for his city. We 100% recommend booking this tour if you are looking for a nice morning and introduction to Melbourne and what it has to offer. The coffee making session at the end is also very lovely and it is so nice to meet with his wonderful friend who has an impressive knowledge about the art of coffee and how it’s made.

A great way to get to experience the Melbourne vibe walking the streets and alleyways with Chris. Chris is articulate, easy & fun to hang out with; not to mention very knowledgeable about the neighbourhood, hidden gems in terms or unnamed bars & restaurants. The experience was very engaging for both adults & our 12 year old. The coffee making experience with Barrista - Jenny was an nicely curated experience; not to mention the awesome coffee after the walk. Thanks Chris....
