You’ll join one of our food loving local Melbourne hosts to eat your way around the city - the best way to get around any city in our opinion. From Italian to Greek, Indian to Vietnamese, Turkish to Chinese and everywhere in between, you’ll find food from all over the world has made its mark on the city.

Wind your way through Chinatown and Little Italy and peruse and taste your way around the street food stalls of South Melbourne Market.

You could even make the pilgrimage to the Footscray neighbourhood (which sounds suspiciously like ‘food crazy’, are we right?) where the adventurous will be rewarded with an explosion of flavours from across the globe.

Sample delicate dim sum dumplings and traditional Chinese egg tarts, indulge in traditional baklava dripping in honey and treat yourself to gourmet cheese and gelato.

You'll get lost (figuratively) in the city’s famous laneways and arcades, where hole-in-the-wall eateries are squeezed alongside standing espresso bars or Japanese izakaya, noodles are being handmade in the window or you might stumble across a specialist cheese shop.

A whole world of food awaits! Just don’t wear your tightest clothes is all we’ll say.

  • Spend 3 hours with your host, who will share with you some of the tastes that come together to make this city so unique - Melbourne’s food culture has its diverse, multi-population to thank

  • Explore famous laneways and arcades, where hole-in-the-wall eateries are squeezed alongside standing espresso bars or Japanese izakaya

  • Sample Italian, Greek, Indian, Vietnamese, Turkish and Chinese cuisine, if you can find room for all of them!

  • Whatever your style and tastes, we promise there’s an intoxicating world of produce and flavours you’ve never imagined - let us know what you like and your host will share what Melbourne has to offer with you

Reviews for Melbourne

St Kilda as a local

My host Chris was awesome. He was very thorough, helpful and friendly with a sense of humour. Quite informative and he took good care of me. Thanks Chris, you were truly awesome.

Great walking tour of Melbourne with Chris

Chris was very open to doing what we wanted. In our case coming from out of the country, he asked for our interests before we ever arrived and designed a walking tour for us!

Personalized Melbourne, Australia Walking Tour with Chris

Our tour host, Chris, conveniently and promptly met my husband and I at our hotel lobby. We did not receive an introductory email which Chris sent...no worries.....he conducted an impromptu interest survey before we "rolled." Based on our responses and my mobility limitation (I use a manual wheelchair pushed by my husband), Chris guided us around older, as well as, trendy areas of attraction around Melbourne. He provided historical, unique, and curious information about the sites. Admirably, Chris knew the location of public lifts to access different street levels by the Yarra River. We were pleased that Chris did not insist on a set route, rather, prioritized our likes and needs. Chris's varied life experiences initiated fun conversations on a number of topics. Overall, an enjoyable private tour of Melbourne with a knowledgeable, personable and friendly host.
