More information

The Greenie is a 4-hour walking tour with the use of public transport. The tour group size is no bigger than 8. It starts at ACMI in the city centre and finishes at a dreamy urban garden about 30mins tram ride from our starting point. Although we will stop for a short food and drinks break halfway through, at the conclusion of the tour you will have the opportunity to purchase a very tasty meal at an organic cafe.

The tour is leisurely paced and does include sit-down stops, however a moderate level of walking fitness is required.

All guests joining this tour agree to our Terms and Conditions.
