Recommended by a friend to do this walk and we are glad we followed up. Fun guide and wonderful to see a different part of our beautiful city. We will return to some of the bars we visited and further explore more laneways. Have already recommended the walk to family and friends. A very memorable experience.

Fantastic Drinking Tour!

Fabulous bar tour! Hugo took us to four hidden bars through the historic laneways of Melbourne, whilst sharing interesting stories about their quirky past. The bars were all unique and complemented each other perfectly. He also pointed out other secret spots and gave us a map with the best locations so we could continue on after the tour ended. My family were visiting Melbourne and this was a lovely way to explore the city in a fun way. Thanks to Hugo for a great experience! Highly recommended

Had a great time with Kahlia and Anthony. They kept the tour lively and engaging with stories and snippets of history despite me being the only person on the tour. We visited 4 very distinct bars covering spirits, beers and cocktails and even managed to squeeze in a few games of darts. We great fun overall!

Visiting the Seamstress Bar. Fyi, the tour could be better if more history about the actual site of each bar was given, as well as someone from each visited bar talking about their respective establishment and offerings. And one final thing, it would be great if every attendee was able to take home their own bar map.

Our guide Beau has great knowledge of the history of Melbourne and his stories were terrific. The bars we visited offered a broad range of experiences, from gaming to excellent wine and cheese pairings, amazing Gin bars and as a Melburnian, a surprise they even existed. A must do!

We would never have known about the little bars we visited if we hadn’t participated in tour! Loved every aspect of it, not rushed and plenty of time to enjoy the location and choice of alcohol. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting to experience something a little different

We totally enjoyed this tour, with Juliet as our guide ~ she was so knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the 3-hours. She also passed on the names of other bars that are worth exploring during our stay in Melbourne. We would highly recommend doing the Melbourne Walking Tour with Juliet.
