Melbourne is distinct and unique in many many ways and one of it is food. It is a mélange of the influx of immigrants that have made Australia their home and became a part of its diverse cultural tapestry. And the best way to experience this is by touring the buzzing neighbourhoods of the city.
So join our native guide with empty bellies (trust us!) and enough enthusiasm to see, eat and smell a pot-pourri of cultures. Take a local train or tram to the market in the the morning hours before the rush when the crowds are thinner and vendors have enough time for a chat. Packed with history and colourful tales from the past, the people you meet will be more than glad to fill you in with facts and anecdotes. With the stories, you will also enjoy a gastronomic fare with plenty of tastings lined up as part of the tour.
Explore the colourful surroundings and pop in some of Melbourne’s favourite street eats. Depending on the day, you may find yourself in Footscray at the Vietnamese Market, Coburg at the Middle Eastern market, South Melbourne for the Mediterranean Market or the popular Queen Victoria Market in Central Melbourne. Each of the markets has its own special vibe and eclectic style. And to wash it all down, you will finish with a hot or cold beverage.
If you are happy with the services provided by your local guide a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels and inspires excellent service. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.
