Explore Melbourne's Famous Food Scene by Bike

Learn about Melbourne's facinating immigration history through food 

For over 200 years, Melbourne’s multicultural immigration has helped to create a dynamic cultural and culinary landscape. This is the basis for our evening food tour, exploring the various ethnic enclaves that make Melbourne the vibrant city it is today. We stop at a handful of sites along the way to give you knowledge and perspective about the different cultures and the various food we will be eating.

Throughout the ride you will enjoy a progressive three-course meal as we stop in at some of the city's dining institutions, old and new. We focus this tour on the neighbourhoods of Fitzroy, Collingwood and the CBD to take you to some of our favourite places. With food included it’s great value, and a great night out, all on a bike!

Relaxing, nicely-paced, and fun - this tour is the perfect addition to any day in Melbourne. The tour starts at 5pm and goes for about 4.5 hours. Join our guides and other travellers from around the world for an experience to remember forever!

Please note: while we will try to accommodate any dietary restrictions, we cannot guarantee that the food provided on the tour will meet every specific requirement. please let us know when booking.
