Sydney Private Tour Summary

Like many tour companies, we offer regularly departing public tours of Sydney. If you want a tour just for yourself and your family/friends, or if you can’t come to the time of our public tour, our private tour is made for you.

By default, we’ll cover much of the same material as we do on the Complete Sydney Walking Tour, with one notable exception — we’ll ask your thoughts. If you have your heart set on Bondi Beach, or taking the Manly Ferry, or exploring the hip neighbourhood of Newtown, we’ll take you there.

This service acts on a “rent-a-guide” basis. You book the tour, and we’ll meet with you at the start and give you the experience you’re seeking.
