Excellent walking tour, so many places of which we weren't aware, little bars and restaurants in laneways that we didn't know. Great knowledge of the features and history of the city.

I thought I knew Melbourne quite well, this tour showed me places I didn't know existed. Marvellous commentary from tour guide Harriet and highly recommend to all visitors to Melbourne, wherever you come from.

Dear Andre J, we just loved sharing the city with you. We know as a local you are in the city quite regularly, it was an enjoyable buzz to share some places you thought you knew, and even a couple that had not made it in your radar. It is always a joy to share thoughts and meet new friends over a dining experience. Thanks so very much for taking the time to write here. We really do appreciate this. With thanks. Fiona Hiddensecretstours

Fiona was amazing guiding us along Melbourne CBD. She explained everything in really good detail and took us to places we would never have discovered on our own. Thanks for an awesome tour! Can’t wait to come back bringing other family members!

What a lovely review, we are all so excited to be back touring, and though we have been doing this for so many years, these little unexpected notes of thanks are so appreciated by all the team, as well as Fiona. The small HST team would love to see you back with your family too - each tour is a little different than the last - even if walking the same path. We love sharing the evolutions of Melbourne. thank you.

It was fabulous!! I highly recommend. The three venues were great and their foods and wines were delicious. I will definitely visit the restaurants again and will aim to go on the tour again in about a year's time.
