Tristan was outstanding. He was polite, witty, knowledgeable and flexible with our tour. It ended up being just my daughter and I on the tour. He learnt what our interests were and tailored the tour to be specific around our interests. He had local knowledge that was amazing and you could see that he had built relationships with vendors around Melbourne. He is a wonderful guide and nothing was too much hassle. He genuinely wanted us to enjoy the sights and bites around Melbourne.

Amazing Street Art tour! Thanks to our tour guide Gigi - she's an awesome artist and so talented! We absolutely loved exploring the alley's of Melbourne with her and seeing the fantastic art! A special highlight was to end up at Blender Studio to meet some of the artists! Thanks so much!

Great fun, kept the kids on the move around Melbourne for 4 hours. Minor errors at left turn at art society (should be a block earlier) and the eagle has gone. Good fun, worth doing and getting into lame ways of mlb. Same program around criminal world could be cool.

was lots of fun, it was great experience with ben and learning about the different parts of Melbourne!

The guide knew a lot about the art in melbourne. Was very competent. I enjoyed the chat with her.
