How is it free? The tours are offered on a "pay what you think it's worth" model so people of any budget are able to turn up and enjoy the tour and discover and learn about our great city. The guides are 100% local Melburnians and they're all about being real! Each of them will share with you their honest, local advice about where to explore, eat or drink. They are never paid to promote or advertise to you. To give back to the community, 5% of all tour profits are donated to a local charity chosen by all the guides.
So hop on the tour walking train and uncover the secrets behind Melbourne's famous culture as you go through some of the best-hidden laneways, arcades and architecture to discover the local and alternative side to Melbourne.
