One of the best private tours we have ever experienced. Simone had a wealth of knowledge and was willing to answer all our questions. The van was in superb condition.

Simon picked us up on time and adjusted tour time because our flight came in late. He took us to get a quick bite to eat. He was so accommodating. We really appreciated his knowledge of Sydney. We had a great time and thank him for showing us Sydney.
Great half day tour of Sydney

Simon paced our time perfectly to cover major highlights, history and natural beauty. We were two families with children, teens and adults. Simon presented Sydney in a fun way with stories, photo spots and yummy Australian treats at the beach. His van was clean, spacious and comfortable for our group of 10. And we appreciated him giving us info and then flexibility to explore for a bit on our own and picking us up in a convenient spot. We all highly recommend any tour with Simon!

We just returned from a wonderful tour with Simon . We highly recommend it and him ! His knowledge of the City and history was excellent and our group of four were very satisfied. He even had coffee and Australian pastries for us on a beautiful beach setting. You can’t go wrong in booking this or any tour he may offer .
Definitely Recommend This Private Tour!

Having a private tour was THE BEST way for our small group to see the sights around Sydney! We were able to customize our tour in an affordable trip with Sydney Scenic Private Tours. My family and I had a wonderful half day tour with our tour guide Simon. We felt very comfortable with him, his driving, and his care for each of us in our group.

He was very knowledgeable about the history of each location we went to, and he even taught us about the Aussie snacks he brought for us to enjoy!

Would definitely recommend this service to anyone visiting Sydney for the first time!

Thanks for taking care of us Simon!
