If you're looking to give your students the complete overview of Melbourne then look no further than our School Walking Tours!

Running Tours Melbourne is a company built by teachers so we know the challenges that schools face in bringing meaningful experiential learning to students. Our School Walking Tours are all customised to ensure alignment with the Victorian Curriculum and molded to fit with the academic and extra-curricular requirements of your school. Alongside the academic benefits of experiential learning it is also important for students to discover the city in which they live in (so that they can then go home and reel off all the fun facts they've learnt to their parents).

Some of the tours we have prepared that can adapted to fit your needs include:

  • Story of Melbourne Walk
    A two-hour walking tour exploring Melbourne's growth from European settlement in 1835 through to today. Some of the locations visited date back as far as 1837 and many sites are unknown to many locals. Your students will be running home to tell mum and dad about all the cool facts they've learnt!
  • Laneways Culture Walk
    A two-hour walking tour that weaves in and out of city laneways exploring amazing street art and interesting architecture including Hosier Lane, Chinatown and more.

Tours for Term 1, 2019 are limited and start at $9.00 per students. To book your school in fill in the contact form below and Fred Baker, our Customer Experience Manager will work with you to create an experience your students will remember.
