3 hour tour with a professional guide through CBD laneways
Take a 3 hour guided walking tour with Brisbane's Insider Tours and explore some of our city's greatest laneway watering holes. Along the way you will be shown some of the most interesting hidden and major sites and historical events including those covering the 100th Anniversary of ANZAC, WWII and convict heritage.
With a small group, this it a fantastic way to really get to know the city and get a personalised experience tailor-made for those who are booked in for the day. Your experienced host will be able to cater to locals and visitors alike by showcasing well-known locations and settings along with unique places and sights. Insider tours have a strong focus on providing access to quality, independent beers and stories of brawls, murder and incarceration. This is such a fun idea for a more mature bucks or hens night, birthday party or for tourists who would like to get to know Brisbane better.
Tours depart from the Groove Train in King George Square so it's easy to get to and you'll be ready to start your tour with a view of City Hall. Guests are expected to be able to walk short distances but also hear, see, listen, and if possible, climb over, for sake of engaging a site and delving into history. You may take a City Cat on the Brisbane River but this would be the only public transport on the night.
You can make a booking for a large group or jump on board one of the walks which are already booked in. Insider Tours operates on the logic that history is even better when enjoyed with a beer and it all sounds like sound advice. Mixed in with some of the city's best spots for delicious food, you will be happy and inspired as you roll home from this unique walking tour.
