Helen gave a very informative and enjoyable narration of the history of the Rocks. I wouldn't have known some of the unique spots and out of view places we visited were even there.
Highly recommend to both visitors and residents of Sydney.

Could have covered more territory at the top end and towards the bridge itself. But reasonably interesting
