What you can expect
Tour the speakeasies, pubs and bars that make Melbourne unique
Melbourne makes you work to find its best bits. It’s most interesting bars aren’t on the high streets, but down dark alleyways. Some even require secret passwords or hidden staircases behind bookshelves to enter (it’s how we keep the rabble-rousers away!).
Bartenders in Melbourne are world-renowned. Once you find their bar you’ll be rewarded with encyclopedic knowledge of the best whiskies, the finest local beers, and out-of-this-world cocktails.
With a small group, we’re able to tailor the trip to your desires. Looking for a rooftop bar — No problem. Have a tequila craving — We’ve got you covered.
If you’re still thirsty by the end of the tour, don’t forget to ask your local guide for some more recommendations, so you won’t have to worry about a dry mouth for the rest of your stay in Melbourne.
