This is not a High Tea tour- Waking past the Hopetoun Tea rooms doesn’t cut it. Self-Preservation had the worse scone in history, but considering its hipster why am I surprised. Koko Black and Laurent are food hall regulars, and the Macarons are better at...More

Wouldn't recommend this tour - visited three bars - the first met the description on the website ( 'hidden gem') so had great expectations. Unfortunately the second was pretty ordinary, made worse by a 30 minute wait for a glass of ice with some punch...More

Most uninspired tour I have ever done. Espy, our guide lead us from bar to bar but did not talk at all. If the participants of the tour did not introduce each other and talk it would have been terrible! The bars were just OK...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
