Private tours are available every day of the week. The start time is flexible. Most tours start between 6:00-9:00pm although afternoon tours are also an option.
The standard tour runs 2.5 hours and visits 3-4 bars. We stay at each venue long enough to allow for one drink while the guide tells stories. The tour can be shortened to accommodate other plans by either eliminating one of the stops or skipping drinks.
