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

Their heroes are the local designers, amazing cafes, and cultural diversity that Melbourne does so well.

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 any 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.

Hidden Secrets signature tour is the 'Lanes and Arcades' tour that is a duration of three to four hours and operates from Monday to Saturday. Other Hidden Secrets tours are Sommeliers City Walk, Art and Design Walk, A Vintage Outing and Cafe Culture Walk. Contact one of the friendly staff today for further information on these tours.

School or Private tour options are available, as well as for special events. Literary Walks or French speaking tours. Discover where the real Melbourne exists.
