Private Multicultural Markets Food Tour
Queen Victoria Markets (Thursdays)

The markets of Melbourne are buzzing, colourful reflections of the city's soul. Half of Aussies are first- or second-generation immigrants, and this diverse cultural tapestry is on full display in its markets. Go behind the scenes on this private tour and taste the food, meet the vendors and discover the local culture.

Celebrate the local foodie culture in Melbourne's multicultural markets on a three-hour private walking tour. With your local host, you'll discover the best of Melbourne's bustling markets. Learn about local gastronomic culture, as well as the history and culinary traditions that are unique to the city.

We'll ride to the market on the local tram, in the morning hours when the crowds at the market are thinner. This will allow you to interact with the vendors, as you gain rare insight into the history of the city and how the character of Melbourne has developed. Melbourne's oldest markets are packed with stories, and we'll include plenty of samples, tastings and time for you to explore, so you can get the true experience.

On this private Melbourne tour, we'll also uncover hidden historical buildings, and pop into a selection of specially chosen boutiques that showcase local designers and artists.

By the time your tour finishes, the markets will have come fully to life as locals arrive for freshly sourced lunches and to do their grocery shopping. The cafés, bars and shops stay open throughout the afternoon, and you'll be free to explore more fully after the tour concludes. Continue shopping on your own, or head back to your hotel for a rest before your evening in Melbourne.
