Hi! I'm John, and I created Depot Adventures.

Depot is Melbourne's largest and best-reviewed tour company. The team and I spend our days walking Melbourne's laneways and sharing its history with groups of school kids, conference participants, and families.

After work, we head to like to grab a few knock-off drinks at local bars not well known to the general public. That's where the idea for co-hosting this experience originated — with me looking for folks to enjoy a few drinks with.

Fast forward two years later, our hidden bar tour is now an Experience unto itself. Myself, or one of my team members will greet you, then take you to a few of our favourite bars.

Whoever your host is, we'll put our own flavour into the Experience, bringing you to our favourite watering holes.

Lapho uzoba khona

We'll spend 3 hours exploring 4 unique and hard-to-find bars.

The bars we visit change on a daily basis based on which bar is best — since we offer this tour daily, we always have our finger on the pulse of where will be best for you.

Bring along your Myki (Melbourne's public transport card). We'll start in the CBD, but occasionally may venture into neighbouring Fitzroy, Carlton or Richmond.

Ilinganiswe ku-4.81 kokungu-5 ngokusuka kokushiwo abanye okungu-305.

John was a terrific host. We enjoyed the variety of bars and drinks on offer. Good bunch of people on the tour. Some of us continued our bar exploration into the evening. Would recommend!

Discovering Melbourne with John felt like touring the city with a friend we hadn’t seen in ages. We booked two tours with John over two days (1/ secret laneway bars on the Friday afternoon and 2/ cultural tour with a guide on the Saturday morning). It was the best decision ever! Within 24h, we knew all the best spots and landmarks of Melbourne and had all our bearings around the city to finish our stay in Melbourne independently. Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Our host Will was fantastic. The bars we visited we probably would never have found on our own. This was a great tour and I will definitely recommend this to all my friends

We had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour! The insight and knowledge of our specific guide Will was exceptional, and when I’d asked about bars featuring arcade machines to play (a hobby of mine) he was effortlessly able to recall a selection of places around town. A great structured way to explore some of the CBD and make some new friends along the way!

This was a great way to get started in Melbourne. We asked for a few extra recommendations from each of the bar staff along Route and ended up with a list of great bars as long as our arm! Great fun!
