Walks 101 is the leading operator of Free Tours in Melbourne, with a desire to bring the city's fascinating history to life.

The company is independently owned and operated by an American/Australian couple who have made Melbourne their home after years of travelling and living in Europe.

The Walks 101 team was founded to bring a travel concept that has taken Europe by storm — free walking tours. Every major city in Europe hosts a variety of free walking tour operators, and Walks 101 is bringing that concept to Australia.

Walks 101's mission is to provide an opportunity for everyone to join a walking tour. Not everyone has been on a free walking tour or knows if it's for them, so our flagship tour, the Free Walking Tour of Melbourne, serves as an entry point for guests to find out about the city and experience a walking tour without any financial risk.

Following the success of Melbourne's Free Walking Tour, the Walks 101 team branched out to offer a variety of food, drink and cultural tours of Melbourne for a fixed price.

Walks 101 offers tours that depart daily, as well as bespoke itineraries and private guides for groups.
