What a wonderful light hearted tour around the laneways of Melbourne. Commentary was informative with a sprinkle of fun added in. Great for visitors and new residents alike! Easy to follow directs and thanks for the assistance on how to catch the trams, a little added bonus! Love it!
Easy, educational and nicely organised!

I tried an audio tour for the first time. After this experience, I find it a good way to explore a city, in this case Melbourne. It is cheap, easy and you learn a lot more about the city rather than just walking around. During the tour, I noticed that I had passed by many nice spots before, without even noticing or knowing what it was. I did this tour with a friend from my hostel. It's only one hour, so there is still plenty of time left to fill in the rest of your day. I am definitely going to listen more to self-guided walks!

I do have one more tip: do the tour when everything is still open during the day. Because otherwise, it is not possible to walk through every place the guide is leading you. In that case, you have to walk around.
Visit at your own pace

I like that you can repeat sections, stop the tour and visit some of the shops on the route, then resume. It’s a great introduction to Melbourne.

This walking tour was a great option for a solo traveler. It was educational and while the app location pick-ups aren't always perfect it is easy enough to load the appropriate sound file manually and not miss anything.
Fun walk

Engaging and interesting narrative. Inclusion of thr tram ride was enjoyable. Was able to take a deviation to AC/DC lane and then get back on track. Was lost for awhile after exiting Block arcade, but got back on track by observing the number of meters to the next stop going up and down (you're there when it gets to zero).
