Amazing Tour
ELAINE_F, Feb 2024
This was an amazing private tour. It was the best tour we had on our three days in Sydney. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed us many places we didn’t even know existed. He was pleasant and we worked together to decide what we wanted to see . I highly recommend doing a private tour with Korhan. Great Job!!!!
Best Sydney tour ever!
Peggy_B, Feb 2024
This was a great tour of Sydney. Our tour guide took us to all the hot spots with historical commentary that enhanced our experience. He dropped us off at the bridge walk, then picked us on the opposite side, we fit in many sites that would have never found. Additional bonus he scoped out the best picture spots and took our pictures. He drove us to hard to find beach spots that were beautiful, then to the best place for lunch and back to the city and our hotel.
Great tour

Fazli was fantastic. He was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. The tour was private so just the 5 of us, so made it nice and relaxing.

Best Tour
Gaby_A, Feb 2024
This was a fantastic tour guide, Daniel. He took us all around to the best view points of Sydney. It was a full 6 hours and we enjoyed all the stops. It was at our own pace and had nice stop for the famous meat pies and the best cup of coffee I think I ever had. We have the best pictures and memories and definitely left us wanting to see more of Australia. I highly recommend this tour and Daniel as your guide. You will have an awesome day.
It Really Is A Gem
Juanita_T, Jan 2024
Overall this was a wonderful outing. The tour was remarkable. We walked up the steps of the Sydney Opera House, we walked across the Sydney Harbor Bridge, we sat in Mrs. Macquarie’s chair, We did the Bondi to Coogee walk and so much more. We even enjoyed a couple of spots not listed in the description such as a street market fair and an observation deck in the museum park where we had a view of the city. The van itself was very comfortable and clean and easily accommodated the six of us. Korhan was an excellent guide. He was on time, energetic, engaging and very knowledgeable, providing insight and history. Korhan promised us an experience and he delivered! The consensus among the six us was that it was well worth the money and the best of all the tours we took during our travels through Australia and New Zealand.
It's a perfect tour if you don't have that much time to visit sydney.
Tiana_R, Jan 2024
Fazli, our guide was realy nice, funny and made the visit really interesting to know more about the story of the city. He also took us to some places probably only known by locals with beautiful scenary.

Norel_T, Jan 2024
We had a wonderful tour of Sydney with Fazli. We really appreciated how he accommodated our requests and his flexibility. I know we saw out of the way beaches and harbor views that other city visitors rarely see. We enjoyed our day.

Excellent tour, guide extremely knowledgeable and knew details about Sydney and Australia in general,
Great tour of Sydney with flexibility to fit one’s interests.
Rolf_L, Dec 2023
We had a great time on this tour. Corey was accommodating and constantly adjusting this tour to our desires. We saw so much in this 6 hour private tour. Well worth the cost. It was 100 degrees out, but Corey took advantage of the lighter crowds in certain areas and kept the car nice and cool for us. He provided plenty of iced water which still allowed us to do iconic things like walk across the 1 mile Harbor Bridge. I greatly recommend this tour for a small group short on time to get a great feel of Sydney. For us, it was great because we then had great ideas to explore the following day prior to our departure from Sydney.
