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 hours, 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.
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?!
Your guide will normally be Justin. I'm a recovering lawyer and the "Head Honcho" of AussieYou Tours. About 4 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).
On some weekends my co-hosts Eddie or Kieran will lead the bar crawls. They are both locals with real jobs during the week and expert bar crawl leaders on the weekend.
Booked a private tour for nieces and nephews from overseas. Included in this tour were my own sons who are Australian. Couldn’t have picked a better gift. They had a fun and informative evening. Justin was a wonderful guide who showed them a side of Sydney that even my sons didn’t know of. Highly recommend this tour, you won’t be disappointed
Hi Olivia, thanks for the lovely review! Was great to show your family around and glad I could find some spots that even the locals didn't know about. Cheers, Justin
My wife Christine found Justin's site/bar tour - and immediately saw the possibilities for her "coming-of-age" celebration with some of our nearest and dearest - including our bridesmaid, two official god-daughters and two other near-as god-children - a mix of mates more-or-less our own age and the other half of the group around half our ages. To be quite frank we felt mates of Justin even before we actually met up. Our tour included five pub/bars - some of them so tucked away behind doorways one would walk by with nary a glance - and way beyond our ken, in truth. My wife and I are many years away from living in Sydney - so for us both - fabulous. As we trawled the streets and bars of Tilly DEVINE (Palmer Street!!) and Kate LEIGH's wild and criminal gang past - both of us looking at the now much gentrified inner-city suburbs of Darlinghurst and Surry Hills remarked on its feel as being that of many parts of inner-city Central Europe and Portugal - and Trans-Caucasus cities visited through 2019. 19th/early 20th century streetscapes - nothing uniform - terraces and warehouses transformed in keeping with their architectural styles! And Justin himself - yes - an easy personable presence - lots of stories to delight us along the way of the area's history - and of the bars into which we were taken, his evident friendship with the staff/management, and the assistance of his sidekick Elliot - made every entry trouble-free and the drinks/snacks situation smooth. Totally recommend.
Thanks Jim for the lovely review! Was an absolute pleasure to show you, Christine and all your friends around some of Sydney's best secret bars. Glad you had such a fun night! Cheers, Justin
WOW!! We booked Justins experience for a hens night and I was VERY apprehensive. After reading reviews I decided to take a risk and I could not be happier with the outcome. Justin is an amazing communicator and knows how to spark up conversations with a brick wall. He shared stories and facts about himself and the places we went to that just made the trip so unique and memorable. The bride of the night told me it was one of the best nights of her life!! And all of us had an absolutely amazing time. Justin is amazing at what he does and I wouldnt think twice about booking again. I had so many requests and he answered and made adjustments to fit every single one. I dont know how he did it, but he ticked every single box. Thank you so much for making our hens night one to remember.
