A Year Off that Never Ended

Our Story

Depot was founded by “American John,” a European Tour Leader who went overseas for a year only to never return. He spent years working in tour guiding, branding, and operations for a plethora of international travel companies through Europe, the US, and Australia.

John was inspired by all the free walking tour companies in Europe, and wanted to bring the concept over to Australia after moving here. He has since hired a top-notch team of international guides who share his passion and enthusiasm for sharing the magic of the city they love.
