We did the half-day tour with Graham who was a very friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable guide whom we got to know quite well as we also did a Blue Mountains tour with him. We also felt very safe with his driving. The whole experience was very relaxed and enjoyable, would highly recommend.
A special mention for this Company as they honoured our Bookings even though we were the only two for both tours and they would not have made any money - a sign of real integrity!
Like We Had Known Him Our Entire Life

As is often the case, a good tour guide can make all the difference. In our case we were matched up with Scott who met us promptly at our hotel for our private (there were five of us) tour around Sydney.

It is always refreshing to hear that your tour guide grew up in the area you are touring. Scott was able to embellish the usual highlights with stories of his own that made it all seem more real. Our tour took us from downtown to the botanical gardens to the North Headlands before circling back through picturesque neighborhoods.

The last thing Scott did for us is book a reservation for us with Doyles on the Beach in Watson's Bay. We had driven by this restaurant during our tour and he suggested it as an iconic dinner house that had the added bonus of requiring the ferry to get there. So rather than drop us off at our hotel he took us back to Circular Quay, explained the process of getting on the ferry and off we went.

A great sightseeing day with a great tour guide and a happy ending for dinner.
Great Day Viewing the City

Chris was a wonderful tour guide that took us around the city and showed us all the little and big things about Sydney.
He was polite, professional, and genuine.
We had a great day!
Sidney Opera House
Millroe14, 20-01-2019
Sidney is a great city, we explored on the open top buses where there are two routes. Also a trip around the harbour was interesting and the Opera House is worth a visit. Travelling around is easy as public transport is very good. Theres so much to do the only way to find out is to visit the city which is highly recommended.
Excellent opportunity to see a lot in a short time

Everything was first class! From pick-up to drop-off, our guide was attentive and very knowledgeable. My health was not great and I had to make use of a cane. Our guide made sure that I was safe and taken care of. The sights we saw were beautiful and our guide made great use of our time.
