We went on the Rocks Pub Walking tour. It was great. We organised it short notice and they fitted us in. Robbie was a great host and very knowledgeable. The beers and food were great and we really enjoyed the whole experience.

We had a brilliant night, walking around The Rocks with our knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, Adam. If you like history, walking and a couple of drinks for good measure, then this is the tour for you. Adam entertained us with stories about each of the pubs we visited and the area in general. We also sampled some craft beers at each stop. It was well organised with tables reserved for us at each pub. Thanks Adam.

Gaz took us for a great tour around Sydney’s Inner West breweries, stopping at Batch, Stockade and Sauce. Got to go behind the scenes and see the brewing equipment up close and learnt a whole heap about beer! A great afternoon! Highly recommended!

Robbie was/is a brilliant guide full of information and interesting anecdotes told in an entertaining way. The tour was extremely relaxed and as there were only 3 people on the tour, it felt like 4 mates heading around the Rocks enjoying each other's company.
