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.

Fun, funny and informative.
Feb 2020
Great fun on this tour! Our tour guide (Rob) was entertaining and informative. He kept things moving at the just right pace, and kept us laughing - and learning. We saw and heard about the very beginnings of Sydney - the good and the bad. Great experience!

Interesting walk around The Rocks
Dec 2019
Adam provided an interesting historical perspective as we strolled around The Rocks and visited 4 pubs. Followed up with pizza at The Australian Hotel and Pub. The notes were a bit confusing because it didn't say the we several times at different times, but it all worked out well.

A great time
Nov 2019 • Couples
This was a great time. We went to four different pubs in a fun and interesting neighborhood. Half the time was spent learning the history of Sydney and the other half was having great conversation with the guide and the other couple on the tour. Definitely recommend! Thanks Rachel!

Great Beer & New Friends
This was one of my favorite tours in Sydney! Gaz was awesome, told funny stories and some history too! I really enjoyed learning about the history of not only Sydney but Australia as well! I would definitely do this tour again. We had a small group of us and even hung out after the tour for a couple hours. Would highly recommend if you like beer, like meeting new people and learning history with new friends!

Learn and Sydney and Drink Beer - So FUN!!!
May 2019 • Couples
I messed up on which day our reservations were for the pub crawl. Came in a day early. The host, Dave, was kind enough to add us to a group of college students from Pennsylvania and their chaperones who were welcoming. The pub crawl was great because you get to learn about Sydney history, the pubs and the beer. Some places offered wine for those who were not beer drinkers. It was a very fun night! We totally enjoyed it!

If ever in Sydney, take the Pub Tour with Gaz. He took us to a couple known spots and a few off the beaten path.
