Sydney The Rocks Historical Pub Tour with Drinks and Dinner
From $87.65
Overview
Combine drinks at the Rocks’ historical pubs with dinner on this 3.5-hour walking tour in Sydney’s oldest neighborhood. Experience authentic Aussie pub life as your guide takes you to some of the district’s most storied watering holes on this entertaining evening out. The tour includes five drinks and dinner, plus commentary from your guide about local history and great places to visit later on your own.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Australian Hotel in Sydney’s historical Rocks neighborhood, where you begin your walking tour of five heritage pubs.
At each stop, choose to drink a glass of Australian craft beer, cider, or wine. The included dinner has a choice of gourmet pizzas with Australian-inspired toppings such as kangaroo, emu, or crocodile, in addition to more conventional meats and vegetarian options.
Throughout the evening, your guide shares the history of the Rocks, the story of three pubs that all claim to be Sydney's oldest, and other entertaining tales from the past and present. Learn about former organized crime in the area, and find secret tunnels used for rum smuggling and other shady business.
Traveling with your guide also provides access to places that are closed to the general public, including a historical convict jail cell and a rooftop that overlooks Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city skyline.
