We are South Africans who have recently moved to Queensland and we visited Sydney. We did the half day with Vic who was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. Our mom of 90 was with us and he went out of his way to ensure she was comfortable and assisted her on and off the van. We visited the places we wished to go to and he was extremely interesting for us to listen to the history of Australia. We can highly recommend Vic who made our afternoon a very, very special memory/

We thoroughly enjoyed this indepth look at this beautiful city. Our guide, Danny, was so very knowledgeable and accomodating. The van was clean and air conditioned and equipped with a speaker system, so we were very comfortable. I highly recommend this tour at the beginning of a Sydney visit to gain a good perspective of the city.

We had an excellent half day tour with our guide Brendan upon arrival in Sydney. We were picked up from the airport, shown around the city, and then dropped off at our hotel about the time we could check-in. Steve was in constant contact with me until we found Brendan at the airport.

We took the half day private tour due to timing but it was a disappointment. We would have been better off doing the regular half day tour. Our driver/guide didn't handle traffic jams or detours well. He was very concerned with getting parking tickets so we didn't stop at some places. He did share some interesting unique historical details but also missed explaining anything about important things such as the opera house. We were dropped off at an area for 15 minutes but only needed 5 minutes for a photo op. He admitted he hadn't done this in a while and we could tell. Fortunately, Sydney is just beautiful and spoke for itself. This tour was not worth the money. Do the regular tour!

Hi LA Foodies. We're sorry that your tour wasn't to your liking. Due to COVID, it has been over 2 years since our guides have had the opportunity to get back doing the thing they love, which is showing visitors to Sydney the wonderful sights, sharing the history, stories and insights of this beautiful city. The last 2 weeks of October and the first week of November this year, we’ve had many of our guides getting back into the swing of it all, and we actually asked your guide to let you know this. We thought that would make it easier and friendlier for everyone. In regards to parking and traffic, this is an issue in every major city and our guides have to be ever vigilant, as parking fines are particularly exorbitant here! I’m sorry that your guide kept mentioning it, we will advise him to keep this particular challenge to himself in future. Sadly Sydney, like New York or London doesn’t allow tour operators to park outside the main attractions, and we do have to abide by the city rules. Please can you let us know which places you didn’t stop? All of the highlights on this tour are either drive-by or set-down stops to enjoy the sights and get that perfect picture. With the Opera House drop off, most of our clients like to stroll around the Opera House for 20 minutes or so. This allows time to get that perfect photo with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background, and also walk up the wide expanse of the iconic steps leading up the the magnificent white sails. Many people like to make their way around to the front of the Opera House as well, which faces directly onto the Harbour and watch the Green and Gold ferries go by. As this is a private tour, you can adjust anything in the itinerary at anytime. Your guide would have been happy to just drop you for a couple of minutes if you had mentioned that this is what you wanted. I am surprised to hear that your guide didn’t talk about the Sydney Opera House. It is one of the highlights and is part of all of our guides’ expanse of knowledge and expertise. Thanks for the heads up; we shall definitely follow this up on this occasion. Safe travels Steve Arnerich Owner, Runaway Tours

We had Andrew, take us around to all the tourist spots of Sydney on 9.4.2019, we only had a few hours as we came off a cruise ship. A private tour. 10/10 Andrew was very polite and so much knowlege of the history of Sydney. Everyone was so happy that such a private tour could be done, with the tight schedule, back in plenty of time to board the cruise ship going back to Brisbane. Will definately use again an will advise others.A1 Excellent. 10/10

I emailed with Mandy who was always prompt and courteous. She custom designed a 6 hour tour to accommodate the needs of our group of 10 Americans. She gave us specific directions and even included a YouTube video to make sure we found the pick-up point. Andrew met us at the airport. He was early and ready for our team of 10. Mandy was also their with another vehicle to make sure we could get all the luggage in. Great job of packing by Andrew, and ALL of our luggage fit in one mini bus! Andrew listened to our needs and showed us the highlights of Sydney at a leisurely pace which was perfect after a day and long night of flying. He told us history, stories, and jokes as he drove us around. He caught the heart of our team and altered the trip to show us just what we wanted to see. He took us for coffee at the beach and lunch at Doyles. He even extended our tour by a bit so that we could get out to see the Opera House. Each one of the 10, was pleased with the tour, the price, the experience, and the professionalism of Runaway tours. We would do the tour again if we ever came to Sydney.
