Eat, Drink and Walk Tour of Sydney with a Local Guide
From USD 79.81
Sydney is famous for its nightlife, but with new bars and restaurants springing up all the time, it’s impossible to keep up. This 3-hour small-group walking tour will help you escape the tourist trail and discover Sydney’s burgeoning small bar scene, including drinks, tapas, and snacks at three different bars.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group of no more than 12 people at 6.30pm, outside the Wynyard Park glass dome. Soak up the atmosphere of the city in the evening hours as you set off on your walking tour of downtown Sydney, stopping to admire colorful street art, historic landmarks, and architectural gems along the way.

Get the inside scoop on the city’s burgeoning small bar scene from your local guide as you stop at three different bars to sample the city’s nightlife. You’ll have around 45 minutes to spend in each bar, which is plenty of time to enjoy the food and drinks on offer. Depending on the night, you might get to tuck into pizza, taste delicious tapas, or sip a glass of Sangria or mulled wine (depending on the season). If you wish, you can also purchase additional drinks or cocktails.

After three hours exploring Sydney by night, your tour ends in the Kent Street area, where you can either make your own way back to your hotel or continue your evening independently.

Simply dreadful

This was one of those legendary experiences you will remember for life, because of how comically appalling it was. The "tour", of Sydney's small bars started about 4pm, and by 5:30pm I had had one solitary drink and a couple of pieces of buffalo cauliflower...More

Friday night discovery tour

John took us to places we would never have found. The small bar concept means each place is unique and funky. The walk is easy and at a relaxed pace. We visited 19 bars with drinks at 3 and food at 2. The Barber shop...More

Small Bar walk with John

Exceeding our expectations of a walking tour! John was a fun guide who had lots to tell us on the small bar history of Sydney and other interesting facts. We would never have found these places without this tour and thoroughly recommend using Urban Adventures...More

Amazing side to Sydney

This tour showcased a great side to Sydney - the eclectic bar culture. We visited many bars- down alleyways, through a barber shop, under staircases. Each bar was in an obscure location but each offered its own unique ambience and character. Many had no identifying...More
