    A really great walking tour. Donna was fantastic. She knew a lot about Melbourne and took us to all the places we wanted to see and some extra places. It was very interesting and we learnt a lot. Thank you Donna for a lovely experience.

    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.

    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!

    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.
