Everything you thought you wanted to see and so much moremore.

Vic was our tour guide. He took us to so many places. His knowledge of each and every location was incredible. He gave us the time we needed at each stop. Taking pictures for us and pointing out so many different facts. He has the greatest personality and we had such a great time interacting with him throughput the day. Vic provided an absolute memorable experience we will never forget.
Beauty and History interwoven as one great experience
IngridJohnson_R, Mar 2024
Scott was the best and most experienced guide. He was able to customize our tour, per our request, skipping sections we had already experienced and adding on parts we wanted to see. As a descendant from a “ convict” (16 yo pickpocket) he offered a unique and entertaining perspective. He highly recommend both him and the tour.

Vic is an honest and reliable driver and a great tour guide. We were in Sydney few days ago an and we felt safe, and happy with Vic . We booked a all day tour and he went above, and beyond (thank you for finding my kids bluey toy) with other sight seeing places. He was on time to pick us up from the hotel early morning . His driving was slow and safe. His very knowledgeable, and provided great history, about Sydney. Thank you, Arjun!
