We waited 2 1/2 years to do this tour thanks to Covid. It was worth the wait. Craig who was our guide was excellent, he gave us a wonderful history lesson of The Rocks whilst informing us about all the local beers and historical pubs in the area. We enjoyed the tour so much we booked a table at The Hero of Waterloo and spent the rest of the afternoon there having lunch, more beers and listening to the Jazz band that Craig had recommended. We would highly recommend this tour and thank Craig for a wonderful tour.

What a great tour we had with Pinno. Initially we were disappointed there were no other tour participants but being there was a finals game between the Swans and Collingwood, it turned out to be a good thing as we never would have heard Pinno above the roar of the frenzied Sydney fans :) Pinno had so much interesting history to share with us, we were a totally captivated audience from the get-go. It was just a very cool thing to wander between the pubs and share the history in between as well. Pinno was an excellent guide and such good company, we would definitely want to join him again on another tour.

Pinot our guide welcomed us with a pint of local beer and a friendly smile at the first pub. We were taken on a ride through Australian history perfectly matched with local beers, pubs, alleyways and how it all ties together. Pinot is a great guide, a walking Wikipedia and presents it with so much enthusiasm, you can’t go wrong on this tour.

I love this review Mitch! You've renamed Pinno into a Pinot grape variety, and have dropped him as a walking source of dubious facts (Wikipedia) hahaha! This all give the other Dave's plenty of ammo! Regards, Gregg

Pinno, what a legend!! Did the pub tour for my daughter’s birthday and Pinno made it a fantastic afternoon. He was very knowledgeable about Australian history but above all else made sure we had a great time. Thoroughly enjoyed our time. Thanks Pinno
