    Booked the Hidden Bars of Melbourne for my girlfriend 50th Birthday. We had a fantastic night been show around by San. It's a must to do as you will be surprise as how many bars there are in Melbourne hidden away.

    Sam was brilliant. Very helpful, friendly, and made sure everyone got out of the experience what they were after.

    The Hidden Bars of Melbourne Tour was fantastic. Melbourne CBD is full of terrific bars that you can search for yourself or, better still, go on a tour with San Khoo who will show you quirky and delightful small places full of character to enjoy cocktails. Melbourne has many stories to tell and this tour was the perfect blend of revealing inner Melbourne's bar scene and some history to give you extra insight.

    It was an fantastic tour and San was the perfect host. Such a great group of bars that were all different that we would never have known about without the tour…

    WOW, where does one start. Started meeting with San who was welcoming, warm & friendly. Personalised call to confirm we were attending and let us know where to meet n greet. We joined another couple and off we went, small and intimate tour numbers which was great. Our guide San was awesome and we started with an amazing bar, where we also enjoyed one of the two included cocktails. San our guide had some great stories of his treks & travels. He showed us so many hidden bars we would never had known was around inMelbourne. Loved this tour, so worth it. Thank you San great evening where we carried on after the tour. I have included some photo's without the names, coz if you want to know where we went, you should do the tour with San and see for yourself.

    Had a fun time with Mark. Loved finding these tucked away little bars, each unique and different. Hidden in plain sight!

    Our guide, Sam was fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable with little snippets of additional laneway information and history as we walked around. the bars we visited were ones that we hadn't previously heard about and were little hidden gems. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and is great value for money.
