‘We had an awesome experience on this tour with our guide John as he took us around Sydney and showed us all the quirky and small bars you would normally just walk past. John had heaps of wonderful stories and some fun history to share on each of the different locations. I couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough!’ Steph J

What you can expect

On this small group Sydney Small Bar Walking Tour, you’ll discover the delights of Sydney after dark by visiting a selection of the city’s unique boutique bars. It takes a local ‘in the know’ to reveal these inner-city gems, and on this tour, you’ll enjoy the services of a local guide to show you around. In between visits to watering holes you’ll explore the heritage nooks and crannies of the CBD and learn some of the city’s rich history.

You’ll meet your friendly local guide and the rest of your tour group at Wynyard Station (check your tour confirmation document for details of the meeting point). From there you’ll head off to the first of three venues visited on this Sydney Small Bar Walking Tour. Each venue has been chosen for its unique offerings and atmosphere. The itinerary depends on the evening and your guide’s preferences. Some bars are tucked down alleyways or in basements, while others are set in unusual locations like old loading docks. Rest assured that they are all something special! [More]

At each venue you’ll sample its signature food and drink offering, which could be anything from wood fired pizzas and sangria, to tapas and mulled wine. Extra drinks can be purchased along the way (at guest’s own expense). You’ll spend an unhurried 45 minutes at each bar — giving you the opportunity to fully enjoy the ambience.

In between stops you’ll stroll past important heritage sites and key city landmarks. Your guide will share interesting historical details along the way.

Get a genuine taste of everything that makes the Harbour City after dark so much fun. By the end of this Sydney Small Bar Walking Tour you’ll be an honorary local!
