We start the tour at the front entrance of Melbourne's tallest building, Eureka Skydeck. As we take the journey up 88 floors (entrance ticket included) you'll get a great overview of Melbourne and hear about how the city became to be what it is today. Back on solid ground, we head to my favorite local cafe which has been part of Melbourne laneways for the past 20 years, blink and you'll miss this quirky and cosy establishment. Here you'll get to try our famous Melbourne coffee and I'll explain the reason that we're so obsessed with it! A small portion of food will also be included. Setting out to explore Melbourne's laneways, I'll take you to some of my favourite arcades, street art and point out some hidden bars along the way for you to try later. We finish the day either at the Queen Vic Markets or Federation Square where I will give you lots of recommendations for things to do with your remaining time in the city. You may even like to join one of our afternoon experiences. Check out our other experiences here: https://www.airbnb.com.au/users/show/188056654
Kellie & Team
A born and raised Melbournian whose young life consisted of day trips every weekend with his father to the city, either discovering the latest attractions, events or many days just spent wandering and exploring. Now as an adult, my father’s wunderlust and long tales has ingrained a treasure trove of knowledge and love of my fine hometown, combined with my own living in this city for 40 years, that I wish to share with you. Now as manager of the awesome Urban Adventures team, let us take you on a personal journey through the laneways, art and history of the city to tasting our local cuisine. If I happen to be unavailable on the day my equally passionate guides Tamara, Sonja, Tristan, Flo or Evan will step in.
