Full description
Your experienced guides will bring Sydney to life as they share their local knowledge, leaving you with a happy stomach and hopefully a new group of friends on this 3 to 3.5-hour guided tour of the area!

The tour begins in the present with modern Australian dining, which you will have the chance to sample. From here, you'll cross the rainbow road and visit the iconic gay district, before learning about the history of immigration in the area and its influence on architecture and food. 

Next, a visit is to a quirky venue with locally brewed beer and perfectly paired sharing plates. On to the butcher of choice. This stop pairs food and personality to bring you an extremely knowledgeable butcher, evident in the quality of the meat you'll try here.

It's nice to finish on a sweet note. Finally, you'll sneak down a leafy side street, collecting a delightful tart and pairing it with a ginger agave cider.
