Eoghan was very knowledgeable and passionate about the Sydney Opera House which made this tour especially memorable. He spoke in detail about the processes and philosophy behind the building (including the politics) which isn't found in most text books. I would highly recommend this tour...More

Thoroughly enjoyed being brought around the city by our guide who was knowledgeable and presented his information in an accessible manner.

What an amazing walk, super informative and you get to know buildings that you would not visit by yourself. It is an eyeopener on urbanisation and the fun of buildings becoming ‘ alive’ when the architect talks about them. Highly recommend these walks!

This walk explored the Sydney inner city suburbs of Chippendale and Ultimo (SAW 4). It was a wonderful morning walking in the neighbourhood that was once pretty run down. The tour guide Eoghan Lewis is an engaging speaker, with a wonderful sense of humour in...More

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

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
