Full description
Explore Flinders Lane and Melbourne's small streets and alleys with their trendy cafes and graffiti-covered walls.

    This tour walks you around Melbourne CBD and then small part is by bus. Cruise is approx. 1 hour. No flexibility to stop anywhere. Our guide was very knowledgeable but poor at keeping the group together when people wanted to enter a shop which led us to losing the tour guide and missing 50 minutes of our tour. This was handled poorly by the tour guide
