Overview
Combine drinks at the Rocks’ historical pubs with dinner on this 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.
Highlights
  • Visit five heritage pubs for Aussie drinks and a gourmet pizza dinner
  • Learn about Sydney through the lens of its oldest district, the Rocks
  • Get exclusive access to a rooftop with sweeping views of Sydney Harbour
  • Join an entertaining guide who serves up Sydney’s history with a twist
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.

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!

G'day Steve. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on your recent pub tour of The Rocks with Adam. We apologize for any confusion over the included meal. The notes indicate that that you can choose to have the meal either before or after the tour. The choice of time is up to the customer. Perhaps this is where the confusion was.

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

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.
