Amazing experience. Welcoming. I joined the coffee tour. Really opened up everyone’s eyes to this daily beverage. Best money spent in Melbourne. Do not hesitate.
Such an enjoyable morning spent strolling Melbourne's lanes and tasting some of the world's best coffee. Monique's commentary was so entertaining and informative, and she made everyone feel warmly welcomed whether they drank coffee or not. Very very highly recommended.
We loved our coffee walking tour of Melbourne on Saturday morning. We were on a staycation in the city & Monique took us to places, and showed us parts of Melbourne we had walked past hundreds of times, but never actually ‘seen’ or visited. She is a wealth of knowledge about all types of coffee & gave us a fantastic education on some of the roasting techniques & coffee jargon. Would highly recommend to Melburnians and visitors to our town (& she can also give you some fabulous dumpling recommendations for a post tour lunch!)
Informative and so delicious! I was a little skeptical going into this, knowing that local tours can be a bit uninspired and dull, but I was so impressed and surprised. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and took us to some of the tastiest foods I've eaten in years, most of which I'd have never found by myself. My family and I did the street-food tour and it was definitely worth it, giving us a variety of food, drinks, and historic information on landmarks that most people wouldn't think much on until they learn the history.
Fantastic tour! We did the foodie tour, with a group of 9 people total. Monique was so friendly and informative, and took us to some delicious spots we would have never discovered on our own. Well worth the price!
