Our group of 8 all loved leaning everything about street art by one of Melbourne's wellknown street artists culminating with a visit to Blender studios and meeting a bunch of artists there too! This is a real insider's view. I discovered lanes I've neever walked down and Im a Melburnian(!) plus hidden installations and curios everywhere. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and well informed re current social political issues impacting alot of street art. We learnt heaps about different styles, genres and history. We left feeling very inspired with lots to talk about.

Tour guide was excellent and tailored the tour for us. The Eureka Tower tour was very informative. The cafe where we had lunch was great, the food delicious, and coffee excellent. Came away with a greater apprecoation of the street art, and the guide showed us shops that we were interested in, and will frequent on further occasions. Very happy with tour, and will do another sometime soon.

Our guide Suki was very knowledgeable & friendly. The street art was AMAZING!! So great to wander laneways that I have never been up & feel the vibe of each one. Thoroughly recommend this. Wear comfy shoes for lots of walking. The studio tour & refreshments at the end adds to the experience of a small tour group & meeting the artists is very interesting.

The history of Melbourne and the pubs culture and rules very interesting. The hidden bars you wouldn’t even know they are there. Really recommend this tour. Out guide was really friendly and lots of knowledge
