Description

Step back to a magical time when rum was a currency, and Sydney's harbourside area of the Rocks was filthy rich with it. See local drinkers in their natural habitat, join them in their ablutions and learn about why rum was worth rebelling for… then and now. The best thing is, because this is a private tour, we can adjust the itinerary to suit you, so let us know when you’re booking if there any special places you are dying to visit near the Rocks!

Alright, let’s get to know Sydney a little better — what do you say? Join us for your very own private tour around one of the most famous neighbourhoods in Sydney

Wind your way through the back alleyways, up the steps and back in time to uncover the stories and people who shaped this fledgling colony. Hear all about Sydney’s oldest pubs, the first breweries, amazing convict tales, and a rebellion over the most precious drink of all… rum!

As Australia’s first neighbourhood, the Rocks was literally cut from the sandstone cliffs that rise above Sydney Harbour. On this private Sydney walking tour, we’ll carve out a narrative of this neighbourhood’s history, starting with the convicts that were forced to settle here and their amazing tales of survival and entrepreneurship.

Along the way, we’ll make pit stops at some classic local pubs in the heart of the Rocks. From there, we’ll explore the once seedy back alleyways, which today are very safe, of course, but still feature many great photo opportunities. 

After a drink at another historical pub, we’ll delve deeper into some of the unique and most off-the-beaten-track parts of the Rocks as we visit an archaeological site like no other in Australia. We’ll finish up your private Sydney tour by enjoying one last beer back near where the tour began.
