Wat je gaat doen

A Master story teller here, I’ll enthusiastically show you my love of Victoria and how our current lounge scene has roots deep into our shady cellars and past. We're headed to 4 cocktail bars where mixologists will be waiting to show off their inventive twists and at the same time I'll show you the waterfront sites of our boozy history: The startling Gold Rush and the sudden appearance of 40,000 miners; A scandalous and unheard of corruption and greed from the LEADER of prohibition here; and how sly rum runners skipped across the sea to the USA selling prohibited booze.

**I’m exited to announce that this tour is open ONLY to groups of either 4 or 5 (to adhere to seating plans (4 or 6) already set up in the venues we visit). Because your group has its own existing ‘bubble’ of trust in distancing, you get to have much more fun. Why? Because you won’t have to monitor distances, staff, surfaces and standards. I do that work, YOU are with your friends in YOUR bubble. I’m a Super Host with a helluva good Cocktail story to tell ,yet with a watchful eye on your group’s safe and good time.

YES - safety is FIRST! But continuing from above...

At each of the 4 venues I will pay for the art and explanation and mixing and pouring of ONE premium cocktail. And one person in your group will get that beverage free!

Rinse and repeat - lol but not precisely. What I mean is that each of you will get one free premium cocktail during our tour. These paid-for cocktails are my choice as Im trying to show off the skill and expertise of the mixologist heaven we live in here in Victoria. You'll pay the tips and taxes.

Meanwhile the bartender to mix for the others. The same or even a different cocktail. That way everyone controls their intake...and expenditures.

Can’t beat being read “The Cremation of Sam McGee” while drinking “Poetic justice”. The cocktails were amazing and the company even better! What a treat!

It was a very historical tour. We learned a lot about Victoria and their prohibition. The cocktails were lovely and all so unique. Very talented bartenders who created each one. Robert picked a great mix of cocktails to have us try!

The places we were taken to on this tour were awesome! My friends and I would not have found them on our own! Would have liked to spend a bit more time in the establishments for the story sharing portion and given the opportunity to order an additional drink while we listened. Robert was kind and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the stories he told us especially the portion that incorporated the history of the establishment too! The cocktails were very sophisticated. Loved when the mixologists presented the cocktails with the ingredients, name, and story behind its creation. Could be shortened to 2 hours.

We went on Robert’s cocktail tour this week and seriously had the best time. This is a new passion project for Robert, and we had him all to ourselves and got to really chat. Robert works full time and just does these tours on a Monday and Tuesday, his days off, because he loves and is passionate about the Victoria cocktail scene and history. He took us to 4 different amazing establishments (I imagine these change up - but we went to an incredible pub with a ton of history, a trendy new spot, a place that has won a lot of accolades for their inventive creations, and a speakeasy). The value of this tour is incredible, and I could really see the price increasing as it becomes more established and gains in popularity. We tried to compensate a bit for the incredible value with an extra tip. But for $54 American we got 2.5 hours of time with a completely engaged and passionate host, and 4 amazing cocktails (cocktails at the places we went to ranged from $12-15 Canadian each, plus tip, which Robert handles). We tried things we would have never ordered on our own. During the walking between establishments, Robert would guide us to picturesque and shady courtyards. He told local folklore stories about rivalries between bar owners, and murder. It was just an all around great day. I thought before booking... maybe I’m missing something, this seems too good to be true? It’s not! Sign up, you’ll have a great time! Thank you Robert!

So great! Each cocktail was fantastic and introduced by an enthusiastic bar tender that obviously cared about the art and enjoyed sharing details, the history and visiting with us. The pace of the whole tour was perfect, never rushed or boring and Robert was knowledgeable and willing to take questions throughout. He was also incredibly helpful in helping me get my cousins in on the tour after AirBnB's Experience reservation modification time had passed. Take this tour! If I should get to visit Victoria again, I will absolutely repeat. Like a good spirit, I'm positive it will only improve with time ;) Cheers!
