If you’re looking for a few hours of fun on the weekend, meeting new people, and discovering new things about your city, Foodi tours will show you where to start.
Foodi and in particular our tour guide, Alf, should be proud of the diversity of their dessert tour selection. Melbourne has so many things on offer that they have done really well to choose particularly notable and varied locations to showcase. While the tour doesn't cover an *extensive* amount of locations, the ones that they have chosen are each unique and impressive in their own way. What's more, probably my favourite aspect of our tour was our extremely informative and enthusiastic tour guide, Alf. As a Melbourne native it was truly wonderful to learn more about my city and develop a greater appreciation for it through its history. 5/5 by Dedrey Erng 3-2-2020

After doing a FOODI Chocolate walking tour this was next on our list to do! and it did not disappoint!!
With the best tour guide going round in Melbourne - Alf, we had the most enjoyable day.
Alf was full of not only knowledge of each shop we went into but the history of Melbourne and passing buildings, laneways and restaurants.
With chocolate tastings, cupcakes, macrons, hot chocolate and donuts it was well worth the guided tour to walk off the sweets while you consumed them!
We enjoyed the shops we visited so much we returned the next day to purchase some more treats to take home.
We only had a small group on our tour which was perfect. It made it easier to hear and listen to our tour guide about all things Sweets, Desserts and Chocolate in Melbourne.
Will be defiantly coming back for more walking tours with Foodi 5/5 by Shirley Prosser 27-5-2019
