‘Our guide John was an energetic and enthusiastic purveyor of this beautiful city’s fascinating history. He doesn’t claim to be a historian but he clearly does his research and loves sharing the secrets of Sydney. We thoroughly enjoyed the two hours we spent with him and our small group.’ Patty J

What you can expect

Looking for the perfect introduction to the fabulous Harbour City? Look no further than this small group Sydney Highlights Walking Tour. With a focus on the CBD’s key harbourside precincts, this tour will take you on an engaging journey of discovery and show you sides of Sydney that few tourists would discover on their own. While your knowledgeable local guide will introduce you to the colonial history of the city, this tour isn’t focussed solely on the past. You’ll also get a feel for life in contemporary Sydney, including the chance to see the fabulous new Barangaroo precinct.

Highlights of the tour include:

The Rocks — See where it all began for Sydney. Navigate the network of cobbled laneways, back alleys and secret passageways of The Rocks, and hear fascinating stories from your guide about life in the early days of settlement.

Sydney Harbour Bridge — Enjoy spectacular views of the ‘Coathanger’ against the backdrop of the harbour, and learn how this engineering marvel came to be.

Sydney Opera House — Today the Sydney Opera House is the city’s best-loved building, but it wasn’t always that way! Learn of the controversy that surrounded the project.

Barangaroo Reserve — Visit this stunning new retreat on the harbour foreshore, which has strong connections with Sydney’s Indigenous heritage.

You’ll also see Cadmans Cottage (one of the city’s oldest buildings), Customs House and so much more.

Factual, fascinating and full of good humour, this Sydney Highlights Walking Tour is a must-do. The Harbour City awaits!
