Sara enthusiastically led a tour of varied bars, each with a different vibe and tasty drinks. Her love of Melbourne shined through as she answered any and all questions. She also left us with a map of several more eating/drinking recommendations. Overall, a fun and enlightening experience!

Excellent tour if you have never been to Melbourne before. The Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and very nice. Don’t eat before you go as I had tastings at 4 places and had 3 drinks which was very filling but certainly value for money. Highly recommend this tour.

This was a fantastic tour through the laneways of Melbourne CBD. A little bit of history and a lot of food! Monique was excellent and such a great guide. Her knowledge was extensive, but she was just so welcoming and friendly!

Hugo was an amazing tour guide. Took us to some fantastic bars that were never would of seen if we didn’t book the tour. Also gave us some great tips for other bars that we never got to on the tour. 11 out of 10!

Learnt of some wonderful places we otherwise would not have found, and learnt some great history of some of the buildings the bars are now in
