This was a fantastic tour, our guide was fab - informative, friendly, funny. The bars visited were interesting in various ways, and the cocktail recommendations were great and priced reasonably; the last bar on top of the hotel - with that amazing city skyline view was a perfect finish to the night. Would do this tour myself again and definitely recommend.
