John was an excellent guide- we went to a variety of hidden bars we could never find alone. Great way to spend an afternoon

Puja K March 2021

Excellent tour with lots of laughter, info about the food and bar scene in Melbourne with an excellent guide Mark.

Kathryn February 2021

Our guide’s stories educated and informed us on historical facts of our state’s capital which were unknown to us, while showing us native Victorian’s, a side of Melbourne we were totally unaware existed. Thoroughly enjoyable, we highly recommend this tour!

Amelia T February 2021

John was excellent company, shared interesting stories of the bars we visited, picked the right bars for us and shared his knowledge of Melbourne (including trees !). Highly recommend this tour.

Ronald B January 2020

We were a group of 3 older ladies from 55 - 65 yo and we were joined by people from Korea, California, Manchester UK and Canberra - our guide Lucy was fabulous, we thoroughly enjoyed it's not very expensive but definitely worth doing... a lot of fun !!!

Anthony A January 2020

A wonderful tour that moves at the right pace. If you want to see the city from the back end so to speak this is the tour for you. A mixture of rooftop and dive spots with wonderful cocktails and the guide Kevin filled with knowledge. He was truly great. Go for the option with drinks included. Won’t be disappointed.

Natalie B September 2019

John was an informative fun guide who showed us some hidden gems of secret bars within bars....the drinks were also delicious!!

Crystal July 2019

The tour provided a variety of options to allow for people with different likes. Each bar had something unique about it. Our tour guide John took the time to learn a bit about each person on the tour and find out what they like. He also showed us other hidden gems in the city as we made our way from one bar to another.

Alyssa D July 2019

This tour was a lot of fun! Our guide, John, was very nice and informative! We visited four different bars, and each had their own unique vibe and story. Our guide was also nice enough to give our group suggestions of other bars to visit based on our tastes in bars or based on the types of drinks we liked.

Our group was a lot of fun and most of the group went out for more drinks after the tour was over! I travel solo a lot and doing tours like this is one of my favorite ways to meet new people and this experience didn't disappoint!

David C July 2019

Great afternoon. Max excellent host. Good mixture of places and great group of people on tour. Highly recommended.

For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
