A highly thought-provoking walk around the edge of Sydney harbour, looking at how geology, history, money and architects have shaped the city. An excellent architectural walk. The guide was full of knowledge and enthusiasm. I have come from the walk enriched by the experience.

A journey not to be missed SAW 3 - Harbourings was easily one of the best experiences Sydney has to offer. It started out with a sprinkle of rain and a warm group of like minded travellers. Eoghan set the scene for what truly was...More

Eoghan was a great guide of Sydney architecture. Along with interesting comments and views of design and planning, he explained the historical and political context from 1770 to present day. I have lived in Sydney all my life and never knew most of what I...More

I went on the SAW 6 tour of George Street. Ben was outstanding. He was able to translate not only the architecture but the history, the politics, the geography, and design to the non-specialists. It was informative, interesting and very well thought out. I highly...More

After this riveting tour I'll never think of, look at or visit the Sydney Opera House in the same old way again. Not your average tour but an informed, fascinating, at times witty, and certainly comprehensive experience. Our passionate and erudite guide gave us real...More

A fascinating introduction to the architecture and other aspects of the beautiful city of Sydney. A very enjoyable walk round central Sydney led by the engaging and informative Eoghan. Thoroughly recommended to anyone with an interest in why buildings are the way they are.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
