Around August 2015 I had the opportunity to go on a Small Bar Tour of Sydney with Two Feet & A Heartbeat and it was one of the most eye opening and informative tours that I had been on in Sydney. Our tour guide showed us places to go that I never thought existed in Sydney.

They have been delivering professional tours in Sydney, Kings Cross, The Rocks, Darlinghurst and Oxford Street since 2008.
Whether you are a visitor to Sydney or a resident, you will find the Two Feet & A Heartbeat tours are a great way to find out what you have been missing out of when visiting Sydney.

When I went on the tour, I couldn't get over the number of small bars that were in Sydney. Around 100. Not that we went into all of them, but we were shown around 13 different small bars. A couple that come to mind were the:

The Fox Hole - A coffee shop by day and a bar at night.

The Shirt Bar Where you can get beautifully tailored shirts, superb coffee and great whisky.

You should check these two out and the WeekendNotes article that I put together.

Sure you could Google places to go to in Sydney and make up your own itinerary of what to see and do in Sydney. What these types of tours give you is the opportunity to not only find out more about Sydney and where to go. It gives you the opportunity to meet other people who also want to find out more about and what to do in Sydney.

One couple that I met on my last tour were from North Sydney and all they wanted to do was find out where you could go on the southern side of the Harbour Bridge.
