A painless way to find hidden bars

Finding The Seamstress bar was a great experience. Cocktails and food good. Decor novel with singer machines and Chong sans hanging from the ceiling.

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.

Great walking tour with a great guide. Each bar was fabulous, quirky and unique in its own way. Group probably could have been a bit smaller than 14 to save time at each bar. Thanks to our guide John, we will certainly be recommending it to our friends

Thanks Jackie! Our normal max group size is 12, but I made an exception and let 2 others overfill this departure because their travel plans changed. I think you're right though — 12 is as much as we ought to take. I'm really glad you enjoyed all the bars, and I hope to see you again soon.

Worthwhile experience

Our guide’s stories educated and informed us on historical facts of our state’s capital which were unknown to us, while showing us native Victorian’s, a side of Melbourne we were totally unaware existed. Thoroughly enjoyable, we highly recommend this tour!

Thanks Kathryn! You were among our first bookings coming out of lockdown, and we so appreciate your support.

John was excellent company, shared interesting stories of the bars we visited, picked the right bars for us and shared his knowledge of Melbourne (including trees !). Highly recommend this tour.

Haha — it's only once in a blue moon I get to pull out my knowledge of the city's horticultural significance — thanks for being a sounding board for me to dive into quite a niche topic. ;) See you soon Amelia!
