One of the best walking tours you will do in Sydney. Very knowledgeable and friendly guides. Really shows aspects of historic and contemporary Sydney you won’t get in other tours. Excellent value for money.

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

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
