Featured Guest Review:

My wife and I loved this tour. From the minute we boarded the coach, our guide was interacting with the group — remembering names and nationalities, asking questions about where we were from, and offering advice for our stay. His knowledge of Sydney was amazing. He was full of historical information, fun facts and personal recommendations, and has an obvious passion for the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Sydney. Chad P (via TripAdvisor)
