Owner description: Walks 101 is independently family owned and operated by an American/Australian couple who have made Melbourne their home after years of travelling and living in Europe. The team of guides who helped develop Walks 101 initially came from Free Walking Tours in Europe, and they noticed a lack of quality Free Walking Tours in Australia. Launching in Melbourne, the goal of Walks 101 is to provide an opportunity to everyone to join a walking tour. Not everyone has been on a free walking tour or knows if it's for them, so our flagship tour, the Free Walking Tour of Melbourne, serves as an entry point for guests to find out about the city and experience a walking tour without any financial risk. We're confident that you'll have a great time and want to join us for more, so we also offer a number of paid walking tours that typically include extras like access to local attractions, food and drink.

Had a great tour with Kelly today. She was a great guide: knowledgeable and entertaining. I learnt a lot about the history of Melbourne, which was my goal, but also about the many charms of this lively city. Thanks Kelly!

I sort of non-committally wandered into this tour, not sure what to expect. It turned out to be a lot of fun, and I learned more than I expected to! Marc was a great guide - very friendly and funny, and happy to answer any questions the group members had, from questions about the history of the city to where to find the most interesting themed bars and the best coffee.

We started by getting a very nice flat white (which, in my tired, recently-got-off-a-plane state, I didn't realise was going to be takeaway - bring a Keep Cup if you have one!) and spent a lovely 2.5 hours (it didn't feel that long) checking out really cool street art, learning some of the stories behind Melbourne and its various attractions, and finishing up outside the Old Melbourne Gaol to hear the fascinating story of Ned Kelly, before heading to one of Melbourne's oldest pubs for a very good meal and a free drink.

I was keen to go on the St Kilda tour as well, but didn't manage it - it'll just have to wait until next time!

We attended a free walk conducted by Kellie our amazing guide. She was very knowledgeable, interesting and made sure we had a great time. She gave us history on Melbourne, told interesting stories and gave us quirky Aussie facts and slang.

I highly recommend free walks 101
