What we'll do
Get ready to explore Sydney's best small bars with a private tour and knowledgeable guide!
This is a private tour version of our public tour "Drink & Discover Secret Bar Crawl". Perfect for hen's parties, corporate team-building, large groups of friends or groups travelling together and end-of-year parties.
Choose from either our Sydney city centre route or our original Darlinghurst and Surry Hills route. Over 3 - 4 hrs, you'll visit some of Sydney's greatest small bars, and finish at a place where you dance the night away. We stop for drinks at 3 or 4 bars, with 1 drink and some share food provided. As we explore, you'll hear stories of local heroes and villains, crazy but true history and learn a bit about Australian slang and humour too. You may even get to try our new "national dish"!
We'll provide you with a map link to all the bars and places visited throughout the night, plus some extra spots to check out. We're happy to customise the night and the route to your specific interests or needs - contact us for more information.
Good food, great bars & fun times - what are you waiting for?!

About your guides
Your guide is Justin. I'm a recovering lawyer and the "Head Honcho" of AussieYou. About 3 years ago I quit my corporate job to work in a happier industry - tourism! I love showing people around Sydney and bringing together people from all over the world. Back when I was a lawyer I spent far too much money hunting out the best bars in Sydney, so trust me, I've done my research for this secret bar crawl.
I have also solo travelled all through South America, Europe and Asia, visiting over 40 years. I have previously lived and studied in China - yep, 我会说中文！(I can speak Chinese)

When do we start and finish? The secret bar crawl starts at 6:30 pm and finishes at approximately 10 pm. Although we often go a lot later than that!

Who can come? All guests must be over 18 years old.
I don't like drinking. That wasn't really a question, was it? But that's okay, this is not a boozy "backpacker" pub crawl where we do shots at every bar. You can drink a lot or a little, you choose. We've even had non-drinkers join us and have a great time!
