This was absolutely fantastic. Great for all ages. We went with my 15 year old daughter and my parents in their 80's and there was something for everyone. Martina gave us such an interesting history of Melbourne - embarrassing at how much we didn't know despite being Melburnians! Go on an empty stomach as there is plenty of food. Martina pointed out lots of different places to try, as well as the places we went to. We went through lots of laneways that I've never been to before. Can't recommend this highly enough!

O3040NWdavidb July 2021

Martina looked after us during the day with unusual little snippets of information about Melbourne and took us to a number of restaurants and sampled their food. Plus also giving information of others great restaurants and cocktail bars we passed. For being single pointing out ways to enjoy eating out eating at the bar or tables. Showed us some secret places only locals know about. I wished I did on the first or second day here.

Krakatoa1049 July 2021

Martina leads an excellent, well paced tour. She is full of interesting information and points out restaurants that are good for breakfast, bars for cocktails and mid afternoon drinks as well as little venues that are worth checking out along the way. The chosen venues were all different cuisines but complemented each other well in terms of a day out eating. I went by myself and it was fine - dont be dissuaded if you are a solo guest. I also chose to have the matching beverages and that was so worthwhile - really different selections and I was expecting wine, but no so at all. I leave it to future guests to be pleasantly surprised also. Go with an empty stomach and open mind and be prepared to have a lot of fun.

teresadG7533IC June 2021

Everything we wanted and more. Great tour guide all to ourselves and insightful information about Melbourne history; great sites and delicious food.

dianner515 May 2021

Great experience . Knowledgeable guide both with Melbourne’s history and what good food is! Length of tour was spot on.

X1895VKstevep May 2021

Exceeded all expectations, Marty even organised fantastic weather, with winter coats tucked away, we pounded the streets in a leisurely manner. As a 5th generation Melbourian Marty's knowledge of the birth of Melb and its preceding journey was first rate, got to see the quaint lane ways, rich with history, supported by some wonderful stories. Marty was an absolute pleasure and was truely invested in giving us a memorable experience, would thoroughly recommend, a must do. Steve & Sue ( Brissy)

stingerswrath March 2021

HIghly recommend Martina's Foodies Bucket List Walking Tour. My wife and I had a senaational day, roamong the streets and lanes of Melbourne CBD, learning a lot about the history of Melbourne but more importantly being introduced to a host of sensational restuarants during our 3.5 hour tour. There wasn't one restarant we wouldn't go back and have a lunch or dinner at, each of them different but equally delicious. Marty was also a fantastic host and made the day even more enjoyable with her enthusiasm and desire to ensure we had a great time. Excuse the pun but put this tour on your "bucket list".

davidcD9140GM March 2020

Martina was personable and very knowledgeable. The restaurants we visited were not only delicious but places we chose to dine again during the rest of our stay. The portions were more than adequate. We enjoyed the small group atmosphere of this tour and highly recommend it!!

marymerci March 2020

This Tour was fabulous!! I so enjoyed the various fascinating areas of the city I had not known existed and I live in Melbourne!! Food was delicious and there was plenty of it, especially liked the soft shell crab wrap and homemade mayonnaise which complemented the crab to perfection at Lucy Liu, and the food at the Peruvian restaurant Pastuso ... So Yum!! ... and not to mention Peru's national drink the Pisco Sour... awesome!! Would not hesitate in recommending this tour!

F3494DNkeithc March 2020

We decided to have a taste of Melbourne and we are so happy we did! Marty our guide was amazing. She knew so much about the history of Melbourne and also the best places for Peruvian, tapas, Thai and gelato! Our day was perfect! Also enjoyed all the beverage pairing she told us to try! Don’t miss this tour if you love good food!

KathleenK121 March 2020

Martina was a wonderful knowledgeable guide who was excited to share her beautiful city. We learnt so much and had some delicious tastes along the way. Best way to start your visit to Melbourne.

Fairway38 March 2020

Martina, as a native Melburnian, is able to both ‘walk the walk and talk the talk’. We spent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon learning about the eclectic history of this wonderful city, in addition to experiencing the delicious and varied cuisine that Melbourne has to offer. We could never have hoped to accomplish this experience of Melbourne, without Martina.

dlefton1 February 2020

Highly recommend this tour. Really had fun. Belinda took us on a walking tour of some great spots and the food was exceptional. Very pleasant conversations along the way. We were full when all said and done. This was our first time to Melbourne and also got a history lesson as we walked the tour. Once again, thanks Belinda for a wonderful afternoon AND the chocolate you bought for us. 5 stars. Dave and Shelley

Jill M February 2020

While the weather could have been better - we had a terrific guide in Sandra and she showed us parts of Melbourne we wouldn't have found on our own. Loved seeing and eating the cultural diversity that is Melbourne! And her willingness to give us ideas on things to do and places to eat while in Melbourne were much appreciated!

Lori M February 2020

Sandra was an excellent guide. Great knowledge of Melbourne and things to do for day trips. That said this was a foodie tour. The prearranged restaurants lacked Australian flavor. There were two Pan Asians and a Spanish Tapas restaurant along with a gelato stand and a chocolate store which was the most Australian food thing on the tour. Sandra covered a lot of ground from the Southbank meeting place to the Parliament. She offered great stories and knowledge.

585maryp February 2020

Our guide was a local and grew up in Melbourne; her family has been in Melbourne for generations. Her passion for the history of the city and the food was infectious. Every tasting was delicious from chocolate to cheese to Peruvian dishes and pan Asian seafood to Spanish tapas to gelato. We visited many historic streets with street art and arcades with beautiful mosaics flooring and arched ceilings dating back from the mid to late 1800’s when the city was founded ex-English prisoners and gold rush prospectors and bordello madams. We travel and always like a food tour to learn about a locations. This food tour and guide made us passionate about Melbourne. We have eaten at every restaurant on the food tour and have only had the best food. This tour fulfilled our foodie bucket list and more. We recommend this unequivocally. Melbourne’s food scene is up there with any European city, any African country or North American locale. The tour and tour guide steered us to some of the best food we’ve ever had.

fegharry February 2020

What a fantastic way to get to know Melbourne and taste some amazing food. Our guide, Belinda, was really engaging and knowledgeable and took us to places we would never have found on our own. Can’t recommend this more highly. If you are visiting Melbourne book yourself on this tour early on in your stay as it will give you a great insight into the city and fab restaurant recommendations

hmi3129 February 2020

The FOODIES BUCKET LIST TOUR is a must for visitors to Melbourne and Melbournians' alike. Our guide, Martina is a ‘Foodie’ aficionado and was both engaging and knowledgeable. We had the opportunity to try the best sweet and savoury tastings, matched with delicious cocktails that Melbourne has to offer. Exploring the lanes and alleyways from the intricate mosaic tiled floor in the Block Arcade through to the graffiti in Hosier lane was a fabulous way to immerse in Street Culture. Melbourne really is a city like no other and has something for everyone. Thank you for a marvelous afternoon, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

rob5345 February 2020

We really enjoyed our time with Sandra and the group. We got quite a lot of history and local insights while also tasting some really nice dishes. Sandra has lived in Melbourne for most of her life, and we deeply appreciated her perspective. We definitely recommend this tour!

V2569KMhannahh January 2020

Such a great tour! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Melbourne. Our guide was lovely and our group made the whole experience that much more enjoyable as it was not just about the food but being able to share and connect with others. The food stops were amazing too and give you a good sense of location and what’s on offer

Michael_J January 2020

We had a wonderful food tour of Melbourne. Our guide was very knowledgable as we walked through the heart of the entertainment area and we visited 3 restaurants each providing a variety of samples of their cuisine which represented the leading styles in Melbourne. We also visited a wonderful cheese shop and gelato shop. We have just started doing foodie tours and found this a wonderful way to gain local insight while having amazing foods. Highly recommend.

ChrisB633 January 2020

Martina was informed, energetic, well organised and knowledgeable. We have done many such tours in other cities and this was up there with the best.

kenjik2013 January 2020

Belinda was knowledgeable guide and showed us a lot of historical points around the city. Food and drink consisted of Asian, Spanish, Peruvian and Italian was fantastically delicious and I visited one of the place on later day. And she gave us many information of restaurant we passed by which was helpful as well. If you want to learn about Melbourne and fill your stomach at the same time this is the best choice.
