Have you heard of the City Greeter service? Many major cities in the world have this amazing service where locals will show you their city, they will bring you to hidden laneways, less know paths that tourists will not know, in small groups of not more then 4! Plus, it’s absolutely free! :P
I’ve got a very knowledgable guide, Paul. Paul brought us into buildings, explained to us histories and cultures! Coincidently, in the group, we were all female travelers! All the girls were amazing! We even went for lunch together and did the Parliament House tour after!
Everyone that is going to Melbourne should get themselves booked for a Melbourne City Greeter tour! I bet it will be an unforgettable experience!
