Allan was a fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide. I had organised the tour as a team building function and everyone was more than pleased with the end result. Overall a great experience.


As a 61 year old person that has lived in Melbourne all his life, I had no idea what so ever as to how many bars are located in Melbourne. I have never bothered to go through the small lanes, as due to old habits I have always traveled on the main streets, going through all those lanes I learned that there is a second world in Melbourne that I was unaware of, Thank you for introducing me to it. The cocktail tour was a very pleasing and informative experience.


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.


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!


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.


The Melbourne Cocktail and Bar Tour exceeded all of our expectations. Our host Sebastian has an incredible depth of knowledge and a lovely manner of sharing it. The bars we went to were great discoveries and we loved the food and drink pairings. Highly recommended.


A great tour. A really nice mixture of info, bars and of course cocktails! We visited some of the city’s most interesting bars with delicious food and drinks. We now have a whole list of other places to try too.


Highly recommend this tour. We are fortunate to be able to eat out in the city often, yet discovered so many new places to enjoy a cocktail & some food that we will definitely visit in the future. Allan & Seb were a wealth of knowledge & it was lovely to be able to walk along & ask questions, as well as stop at various spots along the way to hear about different places & interesting stories attached to them. The cocktails we were presented, & the accompanying food were both delicious. Thank you & we look forward to doing…


This tour was one of the best experiences of my life. All aspects of it were absolutely amazing. The cocktails were to die for, the food was divine, the venues were great and the tour guides incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. It was extremely good value for money and I would recommend it to anyone.


Enjoyed the cocktail tour immensely. Knowledgeable and passionate guide/teacher, interesting-intriguing destinations, beautiful cocktails with unexpected accompaniments and a bonus of delightful fellow travellers. Well done Allan & Sebastian. Thank you for a great afternoon & evening.


In an intimate group of 7, we were taken on the Progressive bar tour. Not knowing each other to begin with, we were all chatting as friends very quickly, thanks to the warmth and genuine friendliness of our tour guide Seb. Not only was he sharing his superior knowledge of cocktails but the history of the bars and areas as we wandered around, which was super interesting. With each cocktail there was a bite to eat to match. A very memorable night!!


Attended the cocktail tour, amazing experience! Found out so much about my own city as well as having some great drinks. Allan and Sebastián were very knowledgeable!

A fantastic tour – very interesting background information provided by Sebastian set a context for a round of visits to exciting venues where the staff ensured our comfort and provided us with more interesting background to the food and cocktails served! Extremely inclusive tour where strangers became friends for the evening! Well done Melbourne Food Experiences!
