The rocks & pub tour

We did the rocks & pub tour with Tony and he was awesome! It was a nice balance of history and also had a few great stops for drinks.

My husband and I recently spent 3 days in Sydney and on the first day, our hotel recommended Sydney Urban Adventures for an introductory tour. It was the best thing we could have done as we learned so much about Sydney in just a short period of time. As Australians, we thought there wouldn't be much to learn, and that... More

I was recently given a voucher for a small bar tour by a family member and went on the tour in December. We had an awesome time visiting some super cool little bars, sampling some of their food and drinks and walking around Wynyard while learning some interesting facts about the area. It was really enjoyable, the guide was friendly,... More

Informative and enjoyable walking tour of the Rocks in the early evening (5:00), with two pub stops for local flavor and imbibing. Tony was an excellent guide, great with stories, insights and pace of the tour. Highly recommend for a great introduction to the Rocks. After the tour, stay in the area and grab dinner at one of the numerous... More

this is a great tour to get an in depth history of the rocks and the drinks included we're an added bonus. Our guide Tony was really knowledgable and friendly and made sure everyone knew each other on the tour. He was even kind enough to show us the way back to the station afterwards! Thanks for a great trip!

It was really cool to do a walking tour of a city I have lived in for a while now and discovering so many fascinating insights that I was totally unaware of. The guide was super informative and made the night thoroughly enjoyable. A great night with a few drinks thrown in for good measure.
