We learnt a lot about the history of Melbourne and its bars, as we were led through the inner city to a thriving and energetic and varied spread of intimate cocktail bars. It was a revelation! The breadth of Sebastians knowledge was fabulous and his delivery of information was passionate, interesting and fun. The cocktails and food were delicious. An all round great experience for us . Thanks to Alan for being so flexible with our booking and also for his cheerful and enthusiastic demeanor. Last thinks to the other members of our group....nice people.
I thought the tour guides were fantastic and made the experience for me. Getting to taste several different cocktails along the way was great and I loved the extra tips of other bars/food places as we walked around. Would definitely return and recommend to others. Thanks again for a great afternoon/night!
Wow, as someone living in Melbourne I thought I knew it all, well I was proven wrong on this tour. The cocktail and bar tour was exceptional. Sebastian was such a great guide to have due to his expertise in the cocktail and bar scene. I learnt lots about the history of Melbourne's cocktails as well as being able to try plenty along the way. I was also shown a couple more hidden bars, that I have already been back to visit, and its only been one week since the tour.
