Fun way to spend the evening in Sydney. Great beers, interesting pubs, and a clever tour guide. Gregg was great at herding 8 Americans through The Rocks and kept smiles on our faces the whole time.

Gregg was an excellent guide, full of knowledge about AUS colonial history, beer/brewery/wine and local culture etc. He was enthusiastic, entertaining and knowledgeable. A well-spent of the evening, so highly recommended!!

Cheers for the 5 star review Tracey. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour as a non beer drinker, although there is always a wine, cider or soft drink option in every pub. We don't discriminate, we do just know way more about beer. Regards, Gregg,...More
