Drinking History Tours

Cultural and Theme Tours

Drinking History Tours is a fun, unique and social way for Melbournians, new Melbournians and travelers to undercover the secrets behind this magnificent city.

Drinking History Tours combines the best of both worlds; the history, culture and insight of a walking tour, with the fun and socialisation of a bar tour (sans the hangover).

More fun than a walking tour, classier than a pub crawl.

You will also spend time at three of Melbourne’s best laneway bars, get drinks discounts at each and have a fantastic dinner.
