I was surprised at the value for money! These weren't house beer and wines, but awesome cocktails. Highly recommend. 4/5 by Charmaine Wennekers 29-1-2017
We had a great day and the host Paula was fantastic.
The first venue was particularly good and hosts were very accommodating.
The gin bar was a good spot to go and different but very expensive and service was ordinary.
The last bar ANZ bar was very different again but we all enjoyed it.
Our host was very good.

I really enjoyed it, loved exploring my own city, discovering venues I wouldn't know even existed. Learning lots of things and tasting some very yummy drinks. I was really happy and relaxed, more so as the tour went on. The variety of venues was great a real insight into what our city has to offer. The tour guide had obviously done her research, great venues with some history thrown in and all very easy to access in the short time. 5/5 by Rosa Pane 12-9-2016
Great tour. Lots of fun. Interesting places. A good way of discovering places around the city. Cristina was a friendly and enthusiastic guide always ensuring things were running smoothly. 5/5 by Rosa Pane 11-9-2016
Loved the venues and the whole tour in general. Cristina was so friendly and talkative and had a lot of knowledge of landmarks in the city. She sat with different groups and contributed to discussions. A very bubbly person indeed!!! I would definitely go on another tour especially if Cristina is hosting it!!!!! 5/5 by Rosa Pane 11-9-2016
We really enjoyed the chance to check out some different bars and it was lovely to chat with the other participants and our host Cristina. 4/5 by Adele Smith 11-9-2016
I loved the knowledge of the staff at the Gin Palace. I really like the idea of staff telling us about the place and/or drinks/food. The beautiful buildings is a great feature too like The Bank on Collins and they had happy hour too. Perfect. 4/5 by Rashelle de Haan 15-8-2016
