    A fantastic afternoon out!” Review by emagee67
    Your rating
    Our guide, Rebecca was warm and informative, without being overbearing. She managed a very large group with ease, allowed some flexibility with shopping and staying a bit longer and took us to fantastic places. It was also great to have a discount at some of the places, which meant we were able to share the love at home! Highly recommend this, not just for the food but to see more of our amazing city of Melbourne, with its 'raucous' past and interesting hideaways. Thanks for a great experience, Rebecca.(Posted on 10/7/2015)

    Sensory delight! Boutique Artisan Chocolatier walking tour Review by Clare M
    Your rating
    The tour began with a sparkling introduction from the effervescent Jasmine. We whet our appetites with sneaky appetizer at the cupcake family in QV. It was great to hear about the history of Red Cape Lane. We stopped at 5 or 6 different boutique Artisan Chocolatier during our walking tour on Valentine's day. Every one was divine! Chokolait in Emporium stood out for its delicious aroma and jewelry box style display cases. Jasmine was the perfect combo of hostess & guide, we learned heaps about the arcades and laneways as we wove our way around them. I loved learning to taste chocolate like wine - almost meditative! With no hard sell and up to 15% off in each shop I got some lovely gift boxes. It was an interesting and enjoyable way to see and savour Melbourne. Highly recommended!(Posted on 10/7/2015)

    Cupcake and Macaron Tour by Great Food Tours Review by River B
    Your rating
    My partner and I did a Cupcake and Macaron Tour with Great Food Tours on Sat (13/12/14) and we had a great time! Our tour guide Jasmine was very knowledgeable of CBD Melbourne sharing various facts I never knew about Melbourne and I'm a Melbournian. Jasmine was also very amusing and entertaining. She was upbeat and a lot of fun to talk to in between walks to different tasting places. The tour itself was also great because I had a chance to discover new macaron and cupcakes places I've never been to before! I highly recommend this tour to everyone. I just hope that you will get Jasmine as the tour guide because she is awesome! :)

    Cup cake tour with Jasmine Review by turtonfamily
    Your rating
    Great tour yesterday with Jasmine as our guide. I loved hearing about the architecture and history of Melbourne from a guide who really knew her stuff. We had 6 stops, 3 for cupcakes, 2 for macarons and one for chocolate. They were well spaced out and even though I had 2 kids (10 and 14) with me, the walking was no problem. Thanks Jasmine.

    Lots of walking, delicious cupcakes & macaroons and interesting insights into Melbourne. Even my 13 year old daughter said 'everything about it was fun'. Jasmine was a superb guide. Lookout for discounted tours on Scoopon-I wouldn't have paid full price. A lovely different activity to do on a weekend.(Posted on 10/7/2015)

    Cupcake and Macaron tour with a dash of Melbourne history Review by Joelle43
    Your rating
    Juliana was our tour guide for this experience. Got to sample some of Melbourne"s finest cupcake and macarons along the walk with some interesting history thrown in of Melbourne's wonderful buildings. Enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. 10% off any purchases was offered at each establishment which must be used right then and there which felt a little rushed. One suggestion I would like to make is if that 10% was extended to be used within a week so you could return to take advantage of the yummy desserts!

    Fun two hours walking through the back, side and main streets of Melbourne. Our host, Juliana was fantastic and knowledgeable about both the city of Melbourne and chocolate making. There were plenty of stops for sweet, sweet chocolate sampling and buying and a good pace was set for all ages. Melbourne didn't put on its finest weather but we had a great time anyway. Thank you.

    My best friends and I had a great day!!! Rob was our tour guide and her was fantastic :)
    The company had over booked him with an unfortunate computer clitch and he handled the situation pleasingly well and made the day informative and fun!
    We loved it so much that we are going to do the chocolate tour and hope we get Rob again!!

    Loved the cupcake and macaroon tour however it felt rushed Review by becmahrous@yahoo.com.au
    Your rating
    Our tour guide Juliana was personable and friendly with additional info regarding historical sights along the way. However she did need to speak up as we could hardly hear her amongst the rush of the city surrounding. The cupcake and macaroon shops were absolutely adorable and we could taste their delicious morsles...this was the best bit. The tour was supposed to be 2hrs but we finished at least 30mins early. No wonder we felt rushed. Juliana walked extremely fast to finish early and im not sure why? I believe if this tour was less rushed it would have been a better experience.

    We had a girly day out and i even took my 6 year old daughter who loved it. Our tour guide Juliana was fantastic! Loved all the little historical notes she added to the tour. She was always very well aware of where her party was and made sure we all stuck close together. Well worth it.(Posted on 10/6/2015)
