Awesome guide for perfect half day
jt1discovernet, Apr 2024
Perfect overview of the city! Andrew was definitely the best guide! Great info, engaging, fun, an awesome half day. Wish we could have spent the entire day with him. Thanks again Andrew!
Great afternoon tour
EDWARD_E, Mar 2024
The half day tour with Vic was great. It was a private tour that we booked at the last minute and we had 4 or 5 stops for photos and saw many different neighborhoods in Sydney including the first settlers homes, the red light area, and multi million dollar new homes. Vic provided a running commentary that was very informative. A very good afternoon
Amazing tour
James_A, Mar 2024
Amazing tour! Mike was an absolute great host. I’d recommend this tour for any family. He covers all the highlights of Sydney and is chock full of tips and things to do.
Excellent customized touring company.
Kyrstal_N, Mar 2024
Everyone at this company was wonderful and communicative. Brendan was trusting and friendly. He customized our Sydney tour and was incredibly informative. He also turned around at the airport to bring us a forgotten item in the car. Will definitely call them when we return to Sydney!
Highly recommended

Vic from Runnaway tours was excellent as a driver and guide with knowledge, experience, and a delightful personality! He knew history, culture, and current events in the area and Australia. He answered questions easily. This was one of the best tours we have ever taken!
Great day with Andrew!

Jennifer was a great guide! She was very informative, helpful and kind. She gave us a great tour and even took us to a few places that we asked to see, like out of the way beaches and neighborhoods. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who wants to see Sydney with a great guide who was experienced and quite funny! Thank you Viator and Jennifer! A+++!!!

Wonderful Sydney Tour
Cynthia_S, Dec 2023
Vic was a wonderful tour guide. We loved seeing and hearing all about Sydney and it’s history. Many Thanks!
Very nice city tour
Brijendra_R, Dec 2023
Had a very good time with Glenn. He was very courteous and highly professional. Shied us all the highlights of Sydney and surrounding areas.
Amazing tour of Sydney
Lisa_N, Nov 2023
Our tour guide, Julian, met us a few minutes before our pickup time at our hotel. His warm welcome made our tri-generational party (age range 15-85) feel instantly at ease. I cannot recommend Julian highly enough. He was incredibly knowledgeable, altered our itinerary so we would not duplicate another booked tour, and showed us breathtaking views of the city. Wonderful knowledge of both Sydney’s history and modern day events. What a wonderful way to start our family’s trip to Australia. I cannot recommend him highly enough! This tour exceeded our expectations.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Hi Lisa We're very pleased you had a great day out on your private Sydney City Sights tour with Julian. He has an amazing knowledge base and certainly knows how to customise the tours to try and suit everyone's needs for the day. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Australia Happy travels, Steve Arnerich Owner Runway Tours
