Although I’ve lived in/near Canberra most of my adult life, it’s only in the last 2-3 years I’ve really begun to discover what Canberra and the region has to offer. Your walking tour enabled me to see some familiar territory in a new and different way. Thank you again for this opportunity. I had a great time and I’m really excited to see a venture that will undoubtedly create more Canberra advocates, and spread the pride in our amazing and surprising city.

You may think that you know a lot about Canberra, but you could be wrong! During her newly introduced Cafe Culture tour, Marg Wade reveals more of Canberra’s ‘secrets’, both historical and new. The highlight is a coffee cupping session conducted by one of Australia’s leading baristas – a sensory experience that raised my understanding to a new and unexpected level. By the time I had completed the walk, the coffee encounters and other treats, I finished on a high – no doubt in part caffeine induced.

Thanks for a great tour and for going to so much trouble to make it special for my friend’s birthday.

I would urge people to join a very enjoyable tour of historic Canberra, stopping to enjoy coffee and treats, a wonderfully informative coffee cupping session and tit bits about characters who have helped to make this beautiful city such an interesting place, along the way.
