Vik, our guide, was a lovely guy who was super knowledgeable and made our half day layover in Sydney a real delight. We especially appreciated his respect for Aboriginal history and rights.
Good Tour

Our guide did a wonderful job of showing us Sydney and Bondi Beach. It was just the two of us, so the tour covered several places that we had not seen.
Wonderful experience

This tour was a great way to see the sights of Syndey! You can see the sights on your own BUT knowing the background and fun facts about every area we saw just made our trip to syndey that much more meaningful! Our tour guide Danny was extremely knowledgeable and really made our experience so pleasant! Highly recommend this tour

We are South Africans who have recently moved to Queensland and we visited Sydney. We did the half day with Vic who was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. Our mom of 90 was with us and he went out of his way to ensure she was comfortable and assisted her on and off the van. We visited the places we wished to go to and he was extremely interesting for us to listen to the history of Australia. We can highly recommend Vic who made our afternoon a very, very special memory/
Great half day Sydney Tour

We had a great day! From the stop at the oldest pub in Sydney (which my oldest kid was just talking about today) to the view of the harbour to the Bondi Beach visit to all the scenic points in-between, we had a great time. Our guide vic (I am sorry if I called you Rick once) was professional, knowledgable and patient with our jet lagged 10 year old. He has a wealth if local knowledge and answered my kids' questions with so much patience! Thank you for a great time!
