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.

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

Went to order tickets for the pub tour and was told they don’t do dinner or group photo anymore and only 3 pubs visited, all for the same price. So we passed on it.

G’day Joyce I’m not sure who gave this information, but it is incorrect. The tour visits 4 pubs, and we still offer dinner as an optional extra at a 5th pub. The tour alone with 4 pubs and no dinner is at a reduced rate. We also still take group photos on every tour, which are available to participants on the night, and via our Facebook page. It would be greatly appreciated if you could contact us directly at info@daves.com.au to let us know who gave you this information? Sorry you were misinformed, and chose not to join us. We hope you reconsider if you are back this way. Cheers

Thanks heaps for the review and recommendation. We’re thrilled to hear Garth looked after your small group on the night. He’s a wealth of knowledge, and loves passing on all he knows over a couple of beers. We’re lucky to have him. Cheers.🍻

I messed up on which day our reservations were for the pub crawl. Came in a day early. The host, Dave, was kind enough to add us to a group of college students from Pennsylvania and their chaperones who were welcoming. The pub crawl was great because you get to learn about
