Melbourne is a city which has become famous for many things. We are happy to boast that it has been voted, three years in a row the most liveable city in the world. And we’re partial to agree with that. It really is a wonderful city to live in, and that’s the type of Melbourne we like to show-off on our Unique Tours of Melbourne.

There are many highlights of Melbourne, and many reasons why tourist flock to our city.

We are famous for our Coffee scene. Melbourne has become world famous for serving a great cup of coffee. There are seemingly endless cafes which pop up in every nook and cranny of the city. There is a lot to learn about coffee when you come to Melbourne, and our Cafe Culture Tour of Melbourne is a great way to do it. This tour of Melbourne’s coffee culture encompasses many elements of the city. We talk about how the cafe culture began in Melbourne, how it has developed and show you many of the amazing spots around the city. Of course, there are tastings along to way to make it a full sensory experience. Many of our guests take the Cafe Tour of Melbourne as an opportunity to try new styles of coffee (and some are surprised that there are so many variations).

Never fear, if you’re not a coffee drinker, Melbourne is still the city for you. Coffee is one great element which our cafes serve, but there is a whole lot more to experience too. Whilst wandering around Melbourne, you’re never too far from a chocolate shop too. Many of our cafes are in such unique settings, through obscure doorways and up into quaint buildings. It’s a city which has so much to discover, and the best way to do it is with a local in the know. And that’s what we are!

What others say about our Tours of Melbourne

  • I am so thrilled I did. Wow, it was so interesting. I am seriously born and bred Melbourne, lived here for 50 years (in inner 'burbs) and worked and walked these city streets probably thousands of times and thought I knew my patch pretty well. This tour was the next level. My Melbourne will never be the same to me again, for which I am truly grateful. I liked it so much we're booked on the Degustation Tour. If you are not a local and you are interested in the quirky side of history and how this staid, yet beautiful city evolved, you will enjoy it. If you are a local, you will marvel at Marvelous Melbourne.

  • The tour is really worth every cent. We got two coffees, three sweets, a takeaway coffee mug and even a list + booklets with all the information of the tour. After this experience I wished I will stay longer in Melbourne so I can go explore every venue we passed again. Thums up for this tours! Thanks a lot 'Hidden secrets Melbourne'!

  • I had enjoyed Lanes and Arcades and Cafe Culture Tours in April 2015 with my family and it was so good that I returned with my friend in August Sept 2015. It really is the best way to make the most of your time in Melbourne to spend time with a guide from Hidden Secrets Tours. They are a wonderful example of Melbourne hospitality and the guests on the tour from all over the world make the experience one not to be missed. Next time I visit Melbourne their progressive High Tea Tour is definitely on my to do list.
    “Hidden Secrets Tours are becoming a must do for our trips to Melbourne.”
  • As Friday night was our last night in Melbourne we had a debriefing about what they had enjoyed the most...and guess what??.. Your tour was the most mentioned activity. One girl said it was the best $12 she had spent. Haha. So once again, a huge thank you for fitting us in and helping broaden our girls view of the food industry. They are so much wiser for the experience. Year 12 - Newcastle High School

  • This excellent informative and entertaining tour focused on the inner delights of Melbourne CBD lanes and arcades. Sarah is a wealth of information and is a natural entertainer. Even if like me you have been to Melbourne many times, Sarah still delivered the 'Well I never!" factor. Go on these attractions, they are truly worth every cent. - Trip Advisor - Jan 2014

  • This is honestly the best tour I have ever done anywhere in the world. If you ever visit Melbourne, I strongly recommend that you take this tour.

  • “Fantastic, Friendly, Interesting”

    The guide was amazing. She had such a wealth of background knowledge about the area that she answered every question as well as expanding on it. I could see she really enjoyed her what she did with enthusiasm and eagerness. It was a truly amazing experience. I would gladly recommend this tour for all those who love history and interesting coffee and eats Reviewed 2 January 2014 on TripAdvisor - Cafe Culture Walk

  • Last week Jo and I went on your Lanes & Arcades tour and the Sommelier's Tour. They both offered completely different experiences. We had a great time discovering the many wonderful shops and cafes hidden away in the lanes and arcades of Melbourne...

  • Both my friend Glenda & I have been going to Melbourne for years and we would have never known that these “Hidden Treasures” existed. It was fascinating to walk up & down the lanes & arcades and to see a completely different side of Melbourne...
