Matthew is quite possibly the greatest tour guide in "the southern hemisphere"! Had our own private tour of Melbourne, during which Matthew was so enthusiastic, engaging and informative. Can't wait to return to all the places of interest highlighted during this tour! Thoroughly recommend :)...More

I’ve lived in Melbourne for several years but found this tour fascinating. Mostly I think because Talaska spoke passionately of central Melbourne and made it interesting. It’s the best 4.5km exercise I’ve had that I can recall. Three hours well spent learning about my city...More
