Lanes and Arcades tour WITH lunch

As the original Laneways walk of the central City of Melbourne, this is the tour to really discover the inner heart of Melbourne. Discover local designers and specialty retailers, that often are only found in the city. 

We showcase some of the laneways you may have heard about, but also many you may not know so well. 

A walk in the city is not complete with out a wonderful morning tea, at a local chocolate salon. 

This is a tour with a few added indulgences.  A little history, and attention to amazing architecture will inspire locals and visitors alike. 

This English language tour option includes and unaccompanied lunch at the end of the tour (there is an option to do without.) Your guide will ensure you have plenty of ideas for the afternoon, and assist with seasonal requests on the day too. We know Melbourne better than a guide book.

See many of Melbourne's amazing local businesses and return to those you like best in the afternoon, make a day of it as you meet Melbourne!
