Sam was perfect! You should definitely take this walking tour, and ideally immediately before any other activities. Sam gives you a good idea of what activities are worth it, and what may be best passing on, and was also super willing to provide insight on booking and tickets. The tour was a great summation of Melbourne! DEFINITELY TAKE THIS TOUR.
