Best experience ever I have been to!We learned lot from many aspects including history,urban design,social enterprise,food and so on,which made us comprehensively understand the culture of Melbourne. Such a small group enables us to exchange ideas easily,from one topic to another,from questions to answers. Liam was so thoughtful and made us feel welcome! We were very relaxed during the day and enjoyed the small break with coffee!I highly recommend this to everyone, there’s always something to attract you!

Exceptional experience. Liam was friendly, charismatic, knowledgeable and you can tell he is passionate about the topic (eco/sustainability). He made us feel very welcome and took time while travelling between points of interest to speak with each of us individually about our interests and observations. Highly recommended. We're already signed up for his Culture/Street Art tour later this month and we're super excited.

Liam is good to express the Eco issue for Melbourne. And also know much about Graffiti Artists in this City. I’m lucky, i’m in the only one student this trip. So we have good tempo to experience the tour.

I signed up for this tour because I work in social enterprise sector in Malaysia & would love to learn more about the sector in each city that I visit. In addition to learning about Melbourne social enterprises, I also learned about the history of Melbourne & sustainability practices here. It is amazing to hear that Melbourne City Council plays an active role in creating water & energy efficiency. I'd definitely recommend this tour for tourists and locals alike!

Had an interesting and informative time during Liam’s tour. Really loved that he took us around Fitzroy and introduced us to his favourite social enterprises and heard the stories behind their businesses and passions!

It was a scorcher last day of February in Melbourne, however Liam's tour was very enjoyable and really interesting, along with being inspiring too. Liam instantly made me feel comfortable when I met him. Liam is super enthusiastic about all things pertaining to Melbourne's steps to create a healthy environment for all who live and visit here. He was a wealth of information and was able to answer questions ease. I would recommend this walking tour to anyone who is keen to learn a little about Melbourne's past, as well as how Melbourne is looking toward sustainability in the future.
