  • Sample local beers, wines and cocktails at four unique Melbourne pubs

Melbourne is considered one of the great bar cities in the world, but the best of them are only known to insiders. Tourists frequent Flinders Street, Swanston Street and Elizabeth Street - places where Melbourne's worst tourist traps can lurk. To find really great bars, you have to venture into the areas that are sure not to be found in the guidebooks - dark, dingy, creepy streets. Here you will find unique bars, some of which cannot be recognized as such from the outside. Some bars even deliberately "camouflage" themselves - you can only gain access here if you know the secret password. These bars deliberately do not advertise because you don't need to. You are always well attended just through recommendations. Follow a local guide who also knows the latest insider tips. Visit 4 great bars together in 3 hours. Benefit from special special offers for drinks that are exclusively available for you and your group. Meet local bartenders and bar owners and chat about their shared passion. At the end of your tour, you will receive a customized map with great recommendations for other bars in Melbourne. Definitely bring thirst!

Everything went fine, it was a nice group of various people and to find the good (bar) places isn't that easy in Melbourne, although they have many of them, but all hard to find in the side streets. Just the little rush with the drinks to get from one place to the next one was sometimes difficult when you get a really big drink;)

Good tour but nothing included

Cloe was great, she took us to great places and she is super friendly and created a good atmosphere between the groups. On the other hand, we couldn't believe that drinks or even a small discount were included in one of the places we went. It's a paid tour where you end up paying triple the price. The guest would be happy to have at least one drink.

John was absolutely fantastic. So knowledgeable and easy to get along with. The bars we went too were amazing and nothing like we've seen before. The staff at the bars were super friendly and had a great connection with John also We can’t recommend this tour and John highly enough Josh & Kelly
