Loved listening to some of the stories, inspiration and culture from one of the artists. I felt invited in to a world I knew very little about and left with a wider scope and appreciation. Thanks Ben and the team at Blender Studios. Highly recommended!

On the actual tour itself, it was the street that had the Legacy art that was quite impressive because it wasn't just stenciled or sprayed on like most of the rest of the street art. There was also an area - an alleyway of sorts between some shops that had an assortment of multi-media pieces including a lot of framed (by picture frames) art that was interesting. Loved getting shown around Blender studios. Was beyond impressed by the quality of the art being produced there. They're certainly a talented bunch.

Having an artist as the tour guide was what made this tour. Having someone in their field with the knowledge and insight is a master stroke. The tour was very enjoyable and opened my eyes to the world of street art, and that street art is more than just paint. If you're looking for tour of Melbourne this is the one you want to be on.

A friend and I, seniors, were led on this tour by artist Barak. A wonderful day walking through vibrant Fitzroy, being shown varied styles of mural street art including work by Barak and by his fellow artists from Blender studios. Hearing stories of infighting, insight into the history of the techniques and artists, shown stickers, pasteups and installations, told about the issue of graffiti bombers. I would definitely recommend this tour to people of all ages, a unique tour.

With a street artist able to provide a unique insight into the culture, art works and artists, we experienced the laneways of Melbourne which has changed our appreciation of street art forever! There are hidden gems with a history that only a tour guide with first hand knowledge could provide. A visual feast and immersive experience! Highly recommended.
