This walking tour is a great way to visit historic “The Rocks” Sydney neighborhood and enjoy craft beer at 4 pubs. Our guide Adam had a wealth of history about the Rocks as well as knowledge of the beer at each stop. If you don’t like beer, you can have a glass of wine instead

This was a fun and informative tour with drinks!! Our guide Gaz was the best! He was funny, friendly and very knowledgable. There were just 5 of us on the tour so it was a nice small group. We learned a lot about the area and got to try some great local brews. I definitely would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys a cold beer!

we had Gregg (of Dave's Tours) - he was excellent. a lot of fun, great interaction; a lot of info besides the tastings. my only criticism (but i still rate this a 5) was that there should be some snacks or light bites. 2 - 3 hours of just drinks, starting at 6:30, is a bit rough.

This is a wonderful mix of history about the Rocks and early Sydney settlement/life as well as a great pub tour with some excellent choices of Australian beer. Our guide, Rob, was fantastic! He knew a ton about the history of the Rocks as well as the pubs we visited and general Australian history as well. We really enjoyed our time with him. Only thing to note is that this is a 3 hour tour! Not 2.5 as Viator claims.

This was really good fun. We had a walk around the Rocks with a stop in 4 pubs with drinks provided in each one. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. A great introduction to the area and we revisited some of the pubs again during our stay in Sydney. Recommended!

Our guide really knew both the history of the pubs and the area, but a lot about beer as well. We really enjoyed the tour.

Great fun. Rob was very expressive and full of little known history of old Sydney.
Some snacks at each pub would have been nice.
