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 La Vacanza Travel 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!
