This was a great way to spend a couple of hours getting to know some previously unseen spots in Melbourne. The guide was knowledgeable and his tales of Melbourne's history were well told and really interesting. The graffiti on the laneways has another meaning to me now, as he explained to us a lot about the artists and the culture.... More

We’ve just moved to Melbourne and I was keen to orient myself to my new city’s radical political life, past and present. Meyer is a fount of knowledge and indefatiguable. Today’s walk introduced us to so many interesting features of radical Melbourne.... More

Last week I and a group of fellow Melbourne 'seniors' signed up for Melbourne Walks Street Art and Graffiti Tour. We spent 2.5hrs rambling through some amazing lanes and arcades appreciating Meyer's wealth of knowledge and anecdotes about the graffiti, the artists, the terminology, as well as the history of buildings and other features in the environment that we have...

My wife and I have just come back from an outstanding walking tour with Meyer. He is an absolute fountain of knowledge and provided us with so many interesting facts about the origins and history of the city. He had a backpack full of old posters which brought to historical life different parts of the city that we visited. Meyer... More

Make sure you go down to the local tourist information centre across from Flinders Station and get your information on all the Melbourne walks. Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to make these perfect little booklets up with great walks. AWESOME FUN>

I joined Meyer and a few others for 3 walks where we covered the aboriginal sites, the heritage buildings & the street art in Melbourne. Meyer is extremely knowledgeable and engaging. Living in Melbourne for 8 years, I saw and experienced many things which we miss in our daily lives (almost felt like a tourist). If you're visiting or live... More

The main reason we took a tour through city of Melbourne was our classmates who knew about the tour. I enjoyed this tour, because through the activities I learned a lot of history about the buildings and many places that I had never known before. One of the good places for me is vintage the clothes shop, because I can... More

We went many different ways that I've never walked before, usually I only walked on the wide streets instead of the narrow lane or undergroud where I was afraid to walk alone. And then we went into a... More
