“Sydneysiders love Rocks pub tour”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

I have lived in Sydney most of my life and have had the occasional beer in some of the pubs that we visited on this tour, but the evening we spent with Gaz as our guide was special. My wife and I have been on many tours throughout the world, and this one rates with the best of them! Easy walking, great beers and fabulous pizza mixed in with the local knowledge and excellent company that Gaz provided, made for a memorable night. If you are not a beer drinker, wine or soft drink is available. There is so much history we did not know about this little part of our own city and I thoroughly recommend this tour to tourists and locals alike.

“Sydney Pub Tours”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

We were part of a small tour group on 12/05/2014. This was very personal and family orientated. Gaz is an excellent tour guide and there wasn't much that he didn't know about the Rocks Pubs. He kept our night full of information and entertainment. We kept us all enthralled with his jokes and anecdotes of our history. My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend Gaz and his tour to young and old alike as there is something for everyone to enjoy and experience. Well done Gaz and hope we meet again. Brian and Marj.
PS. All meals and drinks were included.

“Best tour in Sydney”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

This is a great tour, interesting and fun. It's great value for money, lots of great Aussie beers and yummy pizzas! You learn about the Rocks district as well as Aussie culture...it's not boring history stuff at all, you will be truly interested in every topic. Great balance of walking, talking, and drinking. They even take pictures of the group throughout the night and post on their Facebook page. Went with my mom and brother, good for family or friends, of course all of age. Thanks Gaz for a great night! Best activity we did in Sydney!

“A Night on the Tiles”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

When you visit Sydney there are numerous tours and attractions to visit. The Opera House, Fort Dennison, the Harbour Bridge Walk, and the Taronga Zoo. All of them are worth going to, but do not miss the Sydney Pub Tour. It is an informative night and more importantly it is a lot of fun. Gaz, your tour guide, is a wealth of information. At the end of the night you will come away with a better appreciation of the Australian culture and you shall have a lot of fun doing so. Gaz would have made a great teacher, as he has a way of making history interesting. I shall never forget why Australian soldiers are called "diggers" and I learned to play "Two Up." If you go on the tour order the Crocodile Pizza. It has a very mild flavour. If you are going to Sydney, make sure you take this tour early in your stay as it will give you a lot of information about Sydney.

“A great intro to Sydney Pubs and Beer”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

This is THE tour to do when you are visiting Sydney. As a real ale drinker when I am at home I was dreading three weeks of Fosters and Castlemaine xxxx. How wrong was I! Australia, like the States is undergoing something of a beer revolution with microbreweries popping up all over the place. Mine Host for this tour- Gaz, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all the pubs we visited and beers that we sampled. The knowledge gained here was put to good use for the remainder of our holiday- in Sydney and Perth.
Throw in a sensational gourmet pizza and some fascinating stories about the history of The Rocks and its pubs and you have the recipe for a perfect night out.
Never did see any Fosters, but Gaz will tell you why.
