Start your tour in the cultural heart of the City at Federation Square, where you’ll receive an introduction from your guide and learn about the First Peoples of Melbourne, a place known as Naarm in the local Woi Wurrung language. Then set off to Melbourne’s famous street art scene. What used to simply be called “graffiti” has become a trendy artistic style, and the laneways of this city are filled with constantly evolving murals. Your guide will bring you to some of their favourites and explain how the movement has developed, exploring the work of these back-alley artists until you’ve worked up an appetite. And what better way to meet that appetite than with Melbourne’s multicultural food scene. Your guide will take you to their favourite local eatery for a delicious sample of one of the many cuisines Melbourne is known for. Here your guide will tell you about the numerous waves of migrants who have helped to create the Melbourne we see today. We'll also grab a coffee, and your guide will explain what makes Melbourne coffee unique and how to order and drink coffee like a local. You’ll put your knowledge to the test by ordering a brew, then enjoying it with your group. After weaving through more of the city’s famous laneways and beautiful shopping arcades, you’ll finish with a visit to Melbourne Skydeck, the Southern hemisphere’s highest observation deck at 88 stories above the city streets. Here your guide will be able to show you the sights you’ve already seen from a whole new angle and point out other places of interest you might want to visit during your time here. This tour really encompasses all the highlights of the city and will leave you with a greater appreciation and understanding of what makes Melbourne a great place to be.
