This was a great way to fit in a great selection of vintage shops without having to research and locate them yourself. We would have wasted a lot of time looking for some of these 'gems' on our own. We came to Melbourne to find 'out of the ordinary' fashion and the tour provided this for us

Interesting and visited a variety of shops with interesting stock. Tour leader was observant yet unobtrusive, and helpful with any queries we had. Hi Tea was excellent.

Our tour guide Jessie was very informative and really helpful right from the start, from the booking to the last stop of the walk. I do wish that we had a chance to see more things but then again we only had 3.5 hours! However, I really did enjoy the experience. All of the places we were brought to, I would have probably never discovered them myself because they were all these lovely tucked away spots. There were 6 of us on the tour, 3 girls and 3 guys. The girls really enjoyed the tour but the guys found it a lot less appealing. Probably because they weren't interested in shopping but overall were satisfied with the food.

I had an Express Vintage Walking tour with Gerda. I've been to Melbourne several times but this tour showed me another side of Melbourne - the cooler side. Gerda was very friendly and she was not only showed me the CBD stores but also the Fitzroy stores, where the artsy communities are. I did not shop a lot but I was busy recording the stores I went to, just so I can visit them again next time. I will definitely recommend this tour!
