Tour operator

Hidden Secrets Tours Melbourne are the original walking tours of Melbourne's Laneways, established in 2004.

These walking tours of Melbourne City give guests an experience beyond the stock-standard tour. Hidden Secrets Tours pride themselves on showcasing the hidden gems of the city. They want you to Meet Melbourne, not just look at it.

This contemporary team of tour hosts have designed options for travellers and locals - not just 'tourists' - focusing on experiencing the city and all the talent that exists in Australia's creative hub, with information that's more current than any guide book.

Tour group sizes are kept to a maximum of eight to maintain an intimate experience and will run with a minimum of two on scheduled tour days. By design, Melbourne is a spectacular city to walk, so itineraries are based in the city centre. Half day tours, or one to two hour experiences can be arranged.

Hidden Secrets Tours have a range of different walking tours covering food, art, fashion, coffee and wine mixed with history and architectural treasures. Indulge in the cultural and sensory essence of Melbourne with these must do experiences.
