Drinking History Tours

After years of travelling and guiding through Europe and Asia, I realised a simple truth. You could place nearly all tours into one of two buckets: academic or experiential. We’ve all been on the historical walking tour with incredible information and a well-informed (see dry)guide, but it’s all academic: you never get to live and breathe the place you are seeing. On the other hand, experiential tours do a brilliant job of getting your hands dirty with the people and place, but there is no context (the history stuff) to bring it all together. Thirdly, everything is better with a drink in your hand. That’s what I wanted to achieve with Drinking History Tours; incredibly well researched tours that give you the context of a place, while taking you inside a city by experiencing its bars and nightlife. Drinking History Tours is a fun, unique and social way for Melburnians, new Melburnians, travellers and groups alike to undercover the secrets behind this magnificent city. Or put simply; more fun than a history tour, classier than a bar crawl. I hope you like what we have created!
