About the tour

Did you know that Melbourne was voted the world's most livable city for 7 years in a row? Come join Alexander on an exciting journey, in which he shares many more interesting facts about Australia's arts, culture and sport capital. We will be exploring Melbourne's famous Arts Precinct and learning more about how Melbourne became known as Australia's Art Hub. Alexander is also looking forward to Australianizing you by teaching you some Aussie slang and culture tips! So make yourself extra comfortable, and teleport with me down under to one of the world's most fascinating and loved cities!

Meet Alexander


Alexander wants to live in a world filled with appreciation for other cultures, free travel and guacamole as a global currency (we’re allowed to dream right?!). “Storytelling has always been a passion of mine. Whether it’s in the form of acting, writing or showing people around my captivating city. It feels great to express my passions in so many different ways” Alex says, while sipping on a decaf soy latte (a very common beverage in Melbourne, also known as Australia's coffee capital). Alexander believes that it would be a waste and disservice to his fellow humans to not show them around his backyard (well, not his actual backyard, but you get the picture). He’s dedicated to sharing his city’s beauty and history, and once and for all proving to people that kangaroos don’t just bounce around everywhere. Alexander has been running tours for the last 4 years, with his most popular tour being Melbourne’s Hidden Penguins (there you go, saved you a trip to Antarctica!). When he is not touring, Alexander works as an actor, filmmaker and blog writer.
