The tour was amazing. Incredibly informative and interesting. I had no idea how much depth there was to street art and graffiti - the history, the heroes, the unwritten laws and the rivalries. Utterly compelling from start to finish. Getting to shake a can in a Melbourne alleyway was a truly unique and really fun experience. Highly recommended!
It was really really great experience. Must join this if you visit Melbourne!

This is a must do for Melbourne! Had such a great time with Nick and learned so much about the city, the art and history of street art. Created a fun piece together and got some fantastic photos for home. I cannot recommend this experience any higher, you gotta check it out for yourself!
Lukas is a super friendly guide with tonnes of knowledge and experience, you can tell he knows his stuff and is very passionate about it. You get to understand the history of the types of street art and appreciate it a lot more. I had heaps of fun creating my piece and was shown the proper techniques to make it look great. 100% would recommend this experience!
Incredible experience every Melbournian should try!! Melbourne is synonymous with street art and a ‘hands-on’ experience with Nick is the best way to understand why. Nick is an awesome and passionate guide. We went on a private tour with him recently and loved every min of it. The afternoon started with an introduction to the world of street art and graffiti and finished with our own piece of art that we wouldn’t have accomplished without Nick’s help. He guided us patiently through each step, teaching us techniques and making our idea come to life in the most fun and engaging way! He was committed to help us create our best work and didn’t rush the process at all. He even happily stayed longer than the planned tour. We walked away feeling like we’ve left a piece of us on the laneways of Melbourne! This will definitely go down as one of our fondest Melbourne memories!! X
Lukas was a great tour guide and introduced us not only to the different forms of street art but its history and connection to Melbourne. We particularly enjoyed the spray paint session at Union Lane, and Lukas took the time to demonstrate and guide the group through the finer techniques of street art. Overall, we would highly recommend this activity and tour for tourists looking to immerse themselves in Melbourne's rich art culture.
Would definitely recommend this if you're looking for a unique cultural experience in Melbourne. Lukas shared generously about the history behind various street art pieces and guided us through basic street art techniques. There was a variety of paints to choose from to create our pieces, which contributed towards the unique experience.
Really fun and engaging, learnt so much, I am now looking at all the city streets through different eyes. If you do one thing in Melbourne - do this!
Well,the whole experience was amazing and we’re proud of the pieces we created,and the process was a lot of fun.During this experience we also learnt more about street art,and we’ve grown an interest for street art and noticed the art of it wherever we go.I hope more people can also experience this activity,it’s also really unforgettable and we would also want to do more similar activities in the future!
Absolutely amazing! Melbourne has an awesome street art scene that goes beyond what you see with your eyes. There’s a story and a process. You’ll learn the different types of street art and what makes them unique. You’ll get to create your own piece of art legally on a designated wall in the heart of the city. You’ll tour well known streets and lesser known alleys all with phenomenal pieces! “Kasper” is a true artist and has a deep passion for what he does. This day will not soon be forgotten. He made my boys feel special and they left inspired. What a beautifully done experience!
An awesome hands on experience. My girl enjoyed it much. Thanks Kasper bring us to those laneways and showcase us Melbourne street artists’ fabulous work!
A very special experience in Melbourne!
Lukas was and awesome teacher and guide. You can tell he knows and loves what he is talking about. He made the experience fun and laid back. 10/10 would go again.
I can't recommend this experience enough. Its unlike any other tour and you learn from artists who are actually involved in the scene. It was fun, but don't wear your best close because it is hands on spray painting.
I absolutely recommend this as an outstanding experience. A fabulous mix of the history of the art and personal perspective from a practitioner which gave me an appreciation of this collection of urban art forms together coupled with the wonderful practical opportunity of painting on an historic wall. Definitely don't miss this experience!
This was an absolutely wonderful experience and I am *so* glad I did it! Lukas was fantastic, gave fantastic insight into street art, excellent support while we made our own and then gave us an amazing tour of the lane ways...time flew by and I couldn't believe 3 hours had gone by. I did this solo and am *definitely* not an artist but I had a wonderful time and ended up doing a really neat piece that I am really proud of!
This is a must! Lukas and Nick show you a whole different side to Melbourne and give you a perspective on graffiti that you didn't necessarily think you'd gain. I loved being able to create my own art as a part of the experience. Being guided by someone who really knows what they are talking about made the experience authentic and informative.
Fantastic experience! Definitely a highlight of our family holiday. Our understanding of street art was completely transformed through Kaspar’s expert guidance. My teenage sons especially enjoyed creating their own artwork. Thank you Kaspar!
This is a fun and a must do if you are even remotely interested in graffiti and the street art around Melbourne. You’ll get much more than a visual tour, it’s almost like a foreign language course because you learn to read street art.
Blown away, loved this experience. Would recommend even to those who’ve seen/know street art/graff, it’s uniquely Melbourne and Kasper is able to tell you about person experience with many of the artists. Rare experience that seriously caters for everyone.
This was a great tour! We booked mainly because our 14 year old daughter is into art, and loves street art but all three of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Lukas introduced us to a whole culture and showed us how to decode different styles. We have been so much more aware since the tour. Getting the chance to create our own art was fantastic fun! We kept returning all week to see if our work had been painted over yet.
They were really attentive and on time.
Was a very unique and fun experience. Lukas explained street art in a perspective that I had never seen before and it was a real eye-opener. Would highly recommend this experience!
Jasper was very knowledgeable about his subject. He is part of the scene and pointed out two current artists around also. He was friendly and relayed the paint instructions well. The graffiti painting was a lot of fun, but we got so much more out of the tour!
Amazing!!! Definitely recommend an experience like no other!!
I booked this experience for my teenage son as we were visiting Melbourne and we had a day free. I went along also for company, thinking I wouldn’t enjoy it as it’s not my scene,,, but I enjoyed it !! My son loved it and was top of the class and fully engaged in the content. Although I have zero drawing & painting experience, I loved leaving my mark on the walls and the tour was great. It was a great bonding experience Kasper also threw in history of the city which other tours and guides didn’t mention. Our group was very talented and the 3 hours flew by! only comment I would say is,, wear very comfortable walking shoes ! After the tour we watched “ Have you seen the Listers” which had a friend of ours in it from Brisbane Kasper is very passionate about his art :)
Great tour, would highly recommend, i now see street art in a completely different light. Was great having a hands on experience too.
An amazing way to see and explore Melbourne through the lens of the city's brimming street art & culture. We were led by Lukas who is an established player in the street art scene, and provided in-depth and interesting perspectives on street art culture. Even with his credentials, our host Lukas was very humble and a student of the game, choosing almost to explore the lesser travelled streets of Melbourne, while educating and opening up horizons on a beautiful and sometimes controversial world. The best part was leaving our mark on the Melbourne street art scene (even if just for a day before local artists paint over it) which was a truly unique experience. Definitely outside my comfort zone but one of the best things we did on our trip! 10/10 Would recommend.
Such an amazing experience; we got to see the beautiful street art throughout Melbourne city where we would never have even discovered had we been wandering around on our own. It was informative, inspiring and moving to learn about the street art scene, rules and freedom involved. I loved this experience so much and would recommend it to anyone visiting Melbourne!!
Amazing Experience. Had loads of fun and left fullfilled. Kasper our guide had great knowledge about the community and showed and explained lots of interesting aspects about street art, which I would not have been able to pick up walking through the streets by myself. Loved the part where you get to paint on the walls.
Johan & Gauri
This is a must do experience. Kasper was supper nice and he seemed really into what he’s doing. He’s also very friendly. I love how he explained the whole streets art culture rather than just showing us around town which made me appreciate the art more.
The tour was amazing, learnt so much and saw a really cool side of Melb. Lukas was the best, great stories and a genuinely nice guy! DO IT!
This is a great tour of some unique graffiti and street art - something that's really special in Melbourne. We really got to know about the local culture since our guide Kasper is an artist himself. We learned about specific artists and the community, and got to see some pieces by international artists like Banksy and Space Invader. As part of the tour, you'll get to add your own design on a legal public wall. Think about what you want to paint in advance! Our only complaint was that we didn't get long to paint (maybe around 20 mins..)
HIGHLY recommend this if you are any type of creative or interested in art. Kasper is a Melbourne artist himself and offers an insider’s perspective that no one else can. He is a great guide and will set you up to create your own piece of street art too! Seriously, one of the most interesting tours we’ve ever done.
Was so stoked when I came across this Airbnb Experience because it's always been something I've had a genuine interest in exploring. Being an artist from Sydney and associating the beauty of street art and graffiti being a big part of Melbourne's charm is something I wanted to better understand. Kasper was awesome and it actually felt like we had been friends before because it felt like I was just catching up with an old friend. I really appreciated his genuinity and am so grateful for the experience. If you are a creative and want to try something new, I wouldn't think twice about booking in this experience. I definitely won't ever forget it. Cheers guys!
He is so patience and nice even I was slightly late. Thank you for the sharing and I’m able to understand some of the graffiti, street arts etc culture and able to identify some tagging on streets with some basic stories behind. I can understand better when I’m on melbourne streets or laneways now. He has his own studio and great artwork. Thanks for sharing your passion to us. It’s like a zero to half hero within 3 hours for newbie with zero knowledge at all. Thank you so much! Definitely recommended.
This was such an amazing experience, not only do you get to learn SO much about the local street art in Melbourne, you also learn how to do it yourself!! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!!
Excelente opción para descubrir y conocer parte del arte en las calles de Melbourne.
Really great tour with Lucas. Learned lots of things about street art even though I didn't expect to be so interested in it. Saw many different pieces in places that you would least expect. Highlight was definitely getting to paint on the wall. Not artistic talent is needed at all. I recommend doing this tour at the start of your trip, makes walking around town 999x more fun.
Thanks for that wonderful and unique experience. Kasper shared his passions and gave us an amazing overview of urban subculture and its rules. Trying street art by ourselves was a big plus, helped with Kasper advices and passions. Cheers !
Must-take experience if you are interested in street art culture. Just learned how street art is different to graffiti, lots of styles, techniques, personalities and much more into it. I can’t walk the street anymore in a same way I walk as to before. Lucas is excellent teacher and artist, we really look forward to see him and his group for more success.
Awesome experience for older kids to explore a different side of a city. Lukas was so engaging and passionate about the art of graffiti it was infectus. My kids loved all the different types of graffiti that we'd never taken notice of before and throughout the rest of our stay in Melbourne kept on pointing out graffiti everywhere we went, very cool. The experience of actually creating our own pieces was an amazing idea and experience that will go down as one of the coolest things we did on our visit to Melbourne. Highly recommend this experience and these guys.
Unique, hands-on tour of Melbourne's street art scene. Our guide had a decade of experience as a street artist, and had left his own mark in Melbourne. Instead of getting a generic tour, we were taught what you look for, the stories behind the art, and felt like we had an inside scoop. While we were on the tour, we were constantly approached by others that wanted to join. Tourists were taking OUR photos, while we were wielding our spray-paint cans. It's a fun tour we'd recommend to anyone wanting a unique vote of Melbourne's street art scene.
My 2nd time doing the experience. Great host. Great perspectives and lots of fun!
This hands-on street art experience is just really one for the books. LUKAS, who was our guide that day, has intimate knowledge of the street art world. He is beyond credible, and his insights gave me a much deeper understanding and appreciation of all the work I'm seeing around Melbourne. Also, I had zero art background, but LUKAS was able teach us the basics and give us enough confidence to bring our ideas to life. Priceless experience indeed.
Absolutely once in a lifetime experience! We loved learning about the history and stories behind graffiti and street art. To have a shot at the end was amazing! Kasper knew his stuff and was super down to earth. Couldn't more highly recommend! Even if your not 'arty' you will love it!!
This was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience. I learned a lot, met great people from across the globe, and expressed my artistic self with support from the group. It truly made my week! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us! Loved every minute!!!
What an incredible once in a lifetime experience! A true highlight of our time in Australia - Kasper is a legend and made everyone feel comfortable and at ease with the experience - couldn’t have been a better birthday gift.
Do this. I said it at the time and I’ll say it again, that was the best day ever Kasper you’re amazing, loved this, so inspiring!!!honestly best experience on Airbnb worth every penny, go do this and live your best life ✌
This was my second time going on an adventure with Lukas again! I had a really good time AGAIN!
The perfect afternoon exploring, learning and experiencing the art of Street Art.
Super cool to experience with Lukas! I like the 3hrs experience so much!!! It’s an unforgettable & exclusive communication with street artists! Highly recommend this to those who wanna explore the world and embrace the untouched field!
Awesome experience in graffiti and street art! Lukas is very knowledgeable and casual to hang out with! Fun and memorable, indeed.
Had Lukas as a tour guide for the experience. Cool to see art and understand the meaning behind the things we see everyday and don’t even notice. This tour has given me insight into why certain art exists. Lukas was helpful and told stories about his experiences and about other artists. We came across some of Lukas’ street art which was awesome too. It is the best feeling creating your own little bit of street art and it helps when you are guided by someone who takes the time to teach you so well. Definitely an experience to try when in Melbourne especially if you love street art and want to know more about it from people who love it themselves.
We’re Melbourne locals and joined this tour along with our 12yo daughter and some interstate friends. Despite the rain, we had an awesome time! We’ve walked through these alleyways hundreds of times before, but never had the knowledge to really appreciate the street art and the culture around it. Lukas shared his experience and knowledge in a really interesting and engaging way, and then creating our own piece of laneway art was the icing on the cake! Really awesome experience, we’re already recommending it to all our friends, even those that live locally!
Erika & Chris
I had the best experience! I’m never going to look at graffiti the same again, I’ve left feeling very inspired.. I couldn’t ask for more! Thank you so much!
Wow...Wow...Wow What a fabulous and unique Melbourne experience. We had such an incredible and different time. Kasper is very passionate about his love of Street Art and Graffiti and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing about his journey both in Australia and overseas. Lukas was very kind to let my very passionate artist daughter of 7 years join in and she has not stopped talking about it! Kasper was so supportive of her design and helped her create her dream at the end. I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. We travel to Melbourne a lot as we have family there and sure, you can walk anywhere and see Street Art, but not get the insight into its world without Lukas and Kasper. We have not stopped looking at artists work since we saw you and Eden delights in explaining the difference to whoever is with us! Thanks so much, We will see you again. Rachelle and Eden.
Great fun painting and knowing the meaning behind the street art
Must do it! It was one of the greatest tours and experience in my life :D!!
Kasper is absolutely amazing! He is amazing both gentle and passionate. I spent one of the most wonderful days in Melbourne with Kasper. His experience is very unique to me. It’s really inspiring to know there are a lot of young men out there trying their own way to express themselves. I appreciate everything Kasper did. After drawing that little Plankton, I felt like I could become a part of Melbourne. That was amazing!!!
Great unique experience. Kasper was very knowledgeable, friendly and shared his experience and insights. Really enjoyed the experience of producing my own bit of street art even though I can’t draw at all!
I had a terrific time with Nick! He is such a good guide and I really felt comfortable. He had so many stories about the different artists and styles and explained the graffiti culture in an easy way to understand for everyone. You learn to look at street art in a whole new perspective and get to understand the variety of techniques. It was a wonderful experience and i'm now much more aware of looking closely to hidden treasures which usually are missed when just walking down the streets. I also really enjoyed to do my own graffiti, he was really patient and took time to explain the techniques. I would definitely do it again next time I'm in Melbourne and I really recommend this Hands-On experience to anyone who's in Melbourne!
Nicholas was very knowledgeable and the experience was one of a kind (could never do this in Singapore)! He really shows you Melbourne from a whole new perspective. It really taught me how to appreciate the street art here. This would be a great activity for friends and families. No doubt you will have a splendid time!!
Nick shares his enthusiasm and positive attitude towards graffiti in an enjoyable stroll around the many laneways of Melbournes CBD. Throughout there are deeply layered understandings of the artform explained, which are built around an interesting narrative surrounding the art in this town. The real laneway art creating experience with his watchful eye and advice is the absolute icing on the cake for this one of a kind activity. Even as a Melbourne local I found it engaging, informative and may have sparked an old flame for using the spray cans again!
The entire experience with Nick was excellent. He was professional and very receptive and nice. The experience of art painting was amazing and so special I highly recommend!!!
Nicholas is a very nice and cool person. it was really fun seeing all the street art and graffiti and hear his interpretations to the street art. that was cool. but the best part was painting graffiti by ourself. after all the insperation he gave us we started to grab some cans and just started painting whatever we wanted and he was giving tips and was doing his best to help us paint the picture that we wanted. it was a really good day with cool people, some music and lots of fun.
Booking process with Nick was as smooth as silk; which is exactly what you need when your in a new city for a short period of time. Enjoyed a great coffee and conversation with Nick whilst all our crew arrived. Nick’s in-depth knowledge and experience of the street art scene really helped to understand all the layers of street art from tiny tags to massive murals and everything in between. With paint cans in hand and helpful technique & design tips and demonstrations from Nick it was time to start an artwork! I loved, loved, loved this hands-on part of the experience! I would totally recommend this experience and found Nick to be professional, charming, encouraging and fun!
Awesome fun! Must do experience! The mrs and I were down in Melbourne for the week, this was one of the unique experiences we scheduled but wasn’t sure how it would go exactly. Glad we went as It went better than expected. Nick showed us around some streets and told us about the graffiti. At the end of the tour we had time to then do our own graffiti. Absolute highlight getting into it, people were coming by and talking to us and taking photos of our artwork! Very unique experience, one of the highlights of my trip. No other street tour like it!
I enjoyed the explanations about different types of street art and graffiti. I loved that I could create my on art on a wall, and it was legal for a change.
fantastic experience Nic was very good.
I’ve grown up in Melbourne but knew nothing about this amazing culture of graffiti and street art! Nick was a great guide, and the hands-on experience was rewarding and very eye-opening. Would definitely recommend to tourists and even people like me exploring their own city.
Großartiges Angebot, wer mit Graffiti bisher nichts anfangen konnte, sollte buchen. Mit Nicolas hatten wir einen sehr inspirierenden, kenntnisreichen und außerordentlich netten Guide, der uns in drei Stunden zum Street art Künstler werden ließ :-))
Had lots of fun! I am definitely not an artist but Nicholas helped me make a piece that was at least somewhat decent. Would highly recommend to anybody into street art or just looking for something different to do in Melbourne
Informative and fun! Nick is a good guide and supportive teacher.
It was awesome! Nick is very friendly and helpful. You must to do it when you’re traveling in Melbourne.
Cool experience with a knowledgeable guide and teacher. Fantastic experience!
This was a great way to learn more about street art and graffiti in Melbourne. Nicholas provided great context and it was like we got our own curated tour!
We had the best time with Nick! We learned a lot about the local street art scene and had so much fun getting to create our own street art. Tourists were even stopping to take photos and ask how long we had been painting. This is a truly unique and must-do experience on your next trip to Melbourne.
Highly recommend this tour. A whole sub culture I knew nothing about. Nick knows his stuff and has a great way of communicating that through his enthusiasm & knowledge. The highlight has to be the 1 hour plus at the end actually trying out & making your own piece on hosier lane. We had 6 people including us in our tour which was intimate enough to hear everything and be able to have time to ask questions Thanks Nick!
This was an AMAZING Melbourne experience. Nick was an excellent host, and gave us a fantastic tour and history lesson of not only the street art, but also Melbourne itself. We had an absolute blast getting to paint our own street art, and Nick was a huge help in making sure that we had a blast. Don't miss out on this experience!
Une expérience vraiment sympa ! Nich nous explique tous les aspects du street art, les règles entre artistes (respectées ou pas), les aspects de la loi à Melbourne (respectée ou pas). Il détaille avec une passion ressentie les différentes œuvres que l’on rencontre dans la rue, et pas seulement des graffitis, parfois des choses que l’on ne verrait pas nous même. Puis, après démonstration des techniques de peinture à la bombe, nous avons livré champ pour peindre ce que l’on veut dans la rue à Melbourne. Et c’est vraiment très sympa comme expérience. Je recommande fortement si vous vous intéressez de près ou de loin au street art. Vous n’en reviendrez pas déçu.
This was a fun, informative and hands-on tour in the Melbourne CBD that shed light on the world of graffiti and street art, not to mention after the walking and exploring part of the tour you get to join the Melbourne Street art scene by creating your own throw-up in the renowned and respected Hosier Lane/Rutledge Lane stretch. Nicholas was a friendly tour guide with a great appreciation for and knowledge of the scene. The equipment provided and the techniques, tips and tricks he teaches you are a good set of basics to set you on your way and his guidance and positivity was enough to encourage everyone through their novice moments/creative blocks. As a local of Melbourne I’d highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to unleash their creativity in a public way, explore the city laneways and discover it through an artistic lens. Big thanks Nick - From Nikki and Dickie
It was a lively and interesting tour. I enjoyed knowing more about the technicalities of street art and graffiti creation and the social aspects. The hands on part was really interesting - especially as I was never all that artistic !
Fabulous experience for my 15 yo son.
It was a really great experience. Nicholas shows you pieces, you might not notice by your self. I recommend the tour for everyone who‘s interessted in streetart / urbanart. But the best part of the tour is to paint your own piece and don’t be afraid if you never done it before Nicholas guides you through the process.
Guys- you not only get to SEE lots of cool art but you actually get to do your own piece. I’m talking spray can in hand till your heart’s desire. I was initially intimated by the thought of doing a piece myself but with Nic’s easy going demonstration and instruction, I was made to feel like a pro- so much so that I had tourists taking photos of my work. If you want a completely immersive art experience in Melbourne- DO THIS TOUR.
I love the hands on experience where I can experience street art by myself.
Unbelievable experience. Nick was able to explain the ins and outs of the street art scene not just in Melbourne but worldwide, and give us an insight into the underlying presence of art and motifs that is right before our eyes. My girlfriend and I had the most amazing time learning about the ins and outs of the street art universe and then getting to create our own pieces was a massive highlight to finish off. Highly recommend to anyone. Well done Nick.
We had the best time doing this Street Art tour with Nic. We learnt so much and have an all new appreciation for what we were seeing all around us. Nic was so encouraging and his easy “don’t stress” attitude made our entire party feel at ease and able to get stuck in and have fun. Seriously can’t recommend this enough. All 4 of us have said we’re doing it again every time we come back! Cheers Nic for the totally awesome experience. Sonia, Stu, Sara and Logan.
Amazing experience!! During the tour so many people came up to us asking us where to sign up. Such a fun time, we highly recommend.
Nic is friendly and helpful. I didn't know much about graffiti and street art. My English is not good enough, so it's even harder for me to digest everything. But Nic tried his best to take care of me, and I had so much fun in drawing the graffiti! Thank you Nic!
Nick is an absolute legend and is wildly talented. Through this experience I was able to realize a dream of tagging my first street piece and make a good friend. Highly recommend!
This was a great experience and I loved learning about the different types of street art. Very informative.
“Wow! Where do I start! We met Nick and immediately felt welcome. During the tour, he shared an insight into not only the technical aspects, but the motivation, of street artists and writers. I was impressed by his approach and genuine desire for us to understand what we were seeing, from the 'bomber's' to the 'tagger's' and how they approach their art forms. And what was really cool was learning to 'read' the written words by breaking down the letters and their shapes. But honestly, being able to get to create our own art in a laneway is what gives you an absolute appreciation for the skill that goes into making your mark. Nick is so engaging and interested in the art and his group. I highly recommend spending a day with him!”
