  • An excellent way to see the oldest part of Sydney. Greg was a funny and informative host and our fellow pub crawlers were very congenial. The historic pubs were interesting. Oh yes, the beer was excellent also.

  • Great tour and tour guide - he was very knowledgeable about beer and the history of the rocks if you are a wine lover this is not the tour for you even though you can get wine instead of beer - the chardonnay was all the same and not very good. And be aware that the walking portion is up and down hills, stairs and at a fast pace. With the heat and humidity of Sydney, even during the 6:30pm evening tour, the walking portion was very strenuous.

  • Great tour with a great guide Paul. We visited 4 Pubs and had 4 different beers heard stories and history about The Rocks and the Pubs.

  • This was good tour! Gregg, the guide, was informative and funny. Worth your time if you havent anything better to do and you like beer.

  • Interesting tour, learnt lots about Sydney history.

  • Lot's of fun with a neat guide and interesting places to go. Could have used a food stop along the way, but a good way to see some alternate places and find some new pubs.

  • I can highly recommend Dave's Pub Walks and Tours. Our guide for the day was Paul and he was very knowledgeable on The Rocks the area, as well as the beer. I was in a small group with Paul and two others and did the 2:30pm tour on a Sunday afternoon. The weather was lovely which only made this type of tour even more perfect!

    You spend 2.5hrs walking round The Rocks area and take in four historic pubs on route. There is a good selection of beer in each pub and this is included in the price of the tour. We went in some great pubs and even got to go 'behind the scenes' at one of them and learn about Sydney's more darker past!

    A great tour if you are travelling on your own, with friends, work colleagues or family.

  • Tasty beers at great historic buildings in an area where Sydney was first built. And the guide is really generous, fun and engaging. This is a must for those who want to understand in a cool way how Sydney first started out and how far it has come. I think it's the ultimate Aussie pub crawl because you hear stories and musings from a true blue Aussie bloke descended from the original colony who has a really deep knowledge about Australian history, pub culture, sport and psyche. And he has an amazing understanding of overseas culture too. Impressive

  • Loved the pubs but was looking for a bit more history with the beer.

  • Gregg, our guide, was very friendly and informative. My husband and I were the only people but we got the whole tour and it was a lot of fun. If you go to Sydney you must do this tour.
