Have you even been to a city and wondered what all the fuss was about?
Hidden Secrets Tours began in 2004 and was the first company to focus on the fabulous laneways and hidden spaces in Melbourne City - this is where the real Melbourne exists!
This contemporary team of tour hosts have designed options for travellers and locals - not just 'tourists', focusing on experiencing the city and all the local design talent that exists in Australia's creative hub with information that's more current than a guide book!.
Half day tours are offered for first time and repeat visitors, to enjoy the life and soul of the city that's often missed.
By design Melbourne is a spectacular city to walk, so most itineraries are confined to the city centre.
Meet the independent store owners and local characters, indulge in the cafe culture, enjoy the diversity of cuisine and find the best designer shopping solutions that only Melbourne can provide!
Tour group sizes are kept to a maximum of eight to maintain an intimate experience, and will run with a minimum of two people on scheduled tour days.
Food, art, fashion and wine mixed with a little history and architectural treasures. Indulge yourself in the cultural essence of Melbourne with these must do experiences.
