My day was perfect today.
This company exceeded my expectations...
Scott with Private Day Tours picked me up at the hotel as scheduled.
Private tour for just myself.
We took off for multiple beach tours/ small towns and great lunch spot!
Scott was full of history, facts and fun stories.
I can't wait to introduce/ refer him to my clients coming to Sydney. I am sure they will be taken great care of.
Wonderful day and excellent choice

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. We would readily recommend it to others. Our driver and guide, Scott, was outstanding. He encouraged us to tell him where we wanted to go and was so personable. He suggested a restaurant that we really enjoyed and insisted that the schedule was up to us. It was like Scott was a close friend who wanted to share his experiences with us.
Beautiful and relaxing day

I had the pleasure of having a private tour of the lovely northern beaches with Sydney Private Day Tours. They were absolutely professional from the first contact on. I was traveling alone for business and wanted to see as much as I could, so I had many questions, which were all answered promptly. The tour was smooth and allowed for my input as well as time at extra places due to it being private. The ride was waiting for me the morning of the tour and the entire day was smooth and relaxing. John was a wonderful guide and made me feel very comfortable. The trip ended with the tour company giving ME a gift, along with many of the best photos and moments from the trip. Highly recommend.
