Sidney Shore Excursion
Ronald_H, Mar 2024
The driver was very nice and informative. However, the tour - as others have noted - was not as described. For example, we did not stop at either the Botanical Gardens or La Perouse Cape. I thought it was a truncated but more expensive version of the Big Bus Tour. This should not be taken as criticism of the driver but rather the tour description.

Poor experience
Irmak_Y, Dec 2023
I expected a tour guide and had a driver only instead. I didn't learn anything about the city nor was I accomppinied by the driver. I was dropped off to be on my own at each spot with and got picked up and paid $300 for this below mediocre tour. Get an Uber instead and save yourself money.
Response from Host, Dec 2023
We are sorry to hear that this tour didn't meet your expectations. We have accommodated every request: picked you up earlier, dropped you off at the airport, provided free water and snacks. You had a Private tour with an experienced guide/tour who is born & raised in Sydney. We value your feedback and will improve next time.

This was a very good tour except the tour guide shorted us an hour. Otherwise he did a good job of informing us of history, etc. One of us had to sit in the middle seat in an SUV so we couldn't see as well as we would have liked. Rating is on content of tour.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide was very professional and flexible with sights we wanted to see and also very informative about all aspects of Sydney and its surrounding area. This was a highlight of our weekend and left us with great holiday memories.
