It was our first day in Melbourne and we had Dave as our tour guide for the cultural walk. It was the best way to get introduced to Melbourne city for first timers like us. Dave was very knowledgeable and shared with us things that we could easily miss or taken for granted. The walk through the various Melbourne laneways... More

We did the daily cultural walk with Dave as our tour guide. We'd been in Melbourne for a few days and had purposely hunted down a few of the famous streets and laneways. However, when Dave took us down these same streets it was like seeing them in a new and interesting light. There were so many things we'd just... More

I have given gift vouchers of this tour to friends aged from 19 to 79 for their birthdays and all have found it very enjoyable. I have gathered that the guide adapts the tour a little to match the interests of the day's participants. I finally got to particpate in this walking tour myself today. I found the tour guide...

It was a great day and we both would highly recommend it to anyone new or... More

This is great value with Dave - such a personal and friendly guide with a wealth of historical knowledge. He was able to show us so much of the colour and flavour around the city that we would never have found on our own. Even if we did his knowledge of local artists and activities made it all so much...

My two kids, partner and I took the cultural tour with Dave. A great afternoon was had by all as we walked around the center city and learned about the history, culture and street art of Melbourne, including some great glimpses into the Melbourne cafe culture that we joined later in the trip. Well worth the cost. Dave was really... More

Well it is the only beer tour I have done but it was a great experience and pretty much every pub we went to would be one I would not have known. Dave was a great guide and really knows his stuff. I would recommend this to everyone coming to Melbourne.

Hi Mrtynz, Happy to know this is on top of your list of beer tours - even if it is the only one (so far)! It sounds like you enjoyed visiting some of the venues and the historical context of the tour. We pride ourselves on taking guests to some places they would not otherwise find. Hope to see you...
