About Us

Back in 2012, local Sydney tour guide, Gary (Gaz) West, wanted to combine his passion for Australian history, with his love of craft beer.Guide with variety of beers

With over 18 years experience in the tourism industry, having guided thousands of people across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, across the arch of The Sydney Harbour Bridge, around the rooftop of The Sydney Tower, over Sydney Harbour on a variety of different vessels, and through the bustling streets of Sydney on a bicycle, Gaz decided it was time to slow down a little, and create his own unique adventure.

As one of the original guides of The Rocks Pub Tour, once operated by the NSW Government, and back when craft beer was a fledgling boutique industry, he got a ‘taste’ of how Australia’s diverse history can be delivered in a fun, relaxed environment (nothing wrong with learning a bit of history with a beer in your hand).


Today, Sydney Pub Tours has successfully ranked itself amongst the most well respected cultural, and historic experiences in Sydney, and is an accredited Australian Tourism Operator, as recognized by the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program. Click here to learn more about ATAP.


Gaz and his team of expert guides, look forward to sharing an ale and a tale with you, as you join them for a night you’ll never forget……….a night on the tiles.
