At I'm Free we're all about
All I’m Free guides are experienced and knowledgeable locals who are excited to show you around their hometown.
We’re all about being real! Each of us will share with you our honest, local advice about where to explore, eat or drink. We are never paid to promote or advertise to you.
To give back to the community around us, 5% of all tour profits are donated to a local charity chosen by all the guides.
We like to think we have culture, but don’t take our word for it, have a look at what others think.
We currently require bookings so that we can manage numbers and safety during the pandemic.
Once we can, we will return to allowing people to show up to a tour time that suits them. Until then you can book online and we’ll see you soon.
Nope. Not due to weather, we walk rain, hail or shine, and that’s saying something in Melbourne!
We do however, take the current health situation very seriously. In the unlikely event that your guide is at all unwell before the tour and we can’t replace the guide at short notice we may have reschedule. Equally if you’re not feeling well please let us know and we’ll be happy to reschedule your booking to another time when you’re feeling 100%.
