What you'll do

We'll share our local knowledge with you as we spend a few hours exploring the city centre, seeing historical buildings, learning about history, exploring the Harbour, browsing histroic arcades, and exploring "The Rocks" district.

Learn about the historical events that shaped Sydney, and see how those events shaped the city today. Our guides weave together a comprehensive picture about Sydney.

We'll buy you a famous Aussie coffee within the first hour, and in true Australian spirit, end the tour with a local beer.

Your beer won’t be at just any old pub - it’s a classic Aussie mainstay. We'll stick around and provide further recommendations for your time in Sydney, as you sip on your beer (or soda).

Where you'll be

We'll start at St. James Park, then weave through the bustling city centre as we follow the "Tank Stream" toward the site of the original encampment from 1788. Along the way we'll weave into shops, cafes and arcades, stopping to tell you the history (and giving you the option to stop wherever interests you!).

Rachelle was our guide. She is a lovely individual, and for tourists from out of Australia we found her accent to be very clear and easy to understand (no offense Australia, you are a bit hard to get sometimes). The locations were beautiful, and the incorporation of drink stops really took it up a level. We also had great weather which made it even better so look up the weather ahead!

Rachelle led a fantastic tour - she really knows her stuff. It was definitely worth it: the rest of my time in Sydney has been much more worthwhile thanks to the experience and knowledge that I gained on the tour. A must-do if visiting Sydney.

Rachelle was our guide and she was so wonderful and knowledgeable! We had a good time. Learned a lot About Sydney and she even answered all of our super ridiculous questions about the city. Definitely worth doing and it was a good price.

Rachelle was a great tour guide, offering insight and information on locales and traditions in Sydney we wouldn't have learned about otherwise. We would highly recommend the tour through the CBD and ending on the harbour with the iconic Sydney views
