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

I went for the Contemporary Sydney Architecture tour. It was extremely fascinating hearing about the story behind each of the buildings covered as a part of the tour. Eoghan is an excellent narrator who retains the interest of the attendees throughout the tour. Would highly...More

Thanks so much for your review and really glad you enjoyed the tour!
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
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.
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.
We went on the SAW 1 The City walking tour in early February. We did three other tours, two a few years ago, and the Utzon one at the end of last year.
All the tours were fantastic. They are more than your usual city...More
A brilliant experience. A really fascinating way to look at Sydney for both the visitor and the resident. I grew up in Sydney and never knew it in this way, never questioned why is it the way it is; never really saw it in perspective...More

We really appreciate your review.
It's interesting to hear what people with different relationships to place and to the subject matter get out of our tours and especially satisfying when locals see something familiar, something known with fresh eyes and fresh perspective. It's...More
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
or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

Our "Utzon and the Sydney Opera House" tour focuses on the work and ideas of its architect Joern Utzon. The Opera House interiors were designed and built by local architects and are not part of the tour as they were not designed by Utzon.
That said, the key spaces that have Utzon's touch including the main foyers, western colonnade and western foyers, public lavatories and platform entries are part of our tour. We also explain - using models and drawings - Utzon's designs for the glass walls, major and minor halls, furniture, light fittings and so on.
If you're interested in experiencing the Major and minor halls then I would suggest seeing a performance is the best way to do that - or joining one of the Opera House tours. We recommend that everyone goes to a performance.
Hope that answers your question.
