I attended the Conviction tour on the 1st May 14 (Thu) @ 10am meeting at the Rocks Wharf 6. The tour guide was Peter. He is a great, responsible and knowledgeable tour guide. He told us a few interesting stories. The tour supposed to run for 2 hours, but as we were not rush to go anywhere, he spent a... More

Luisa was an outstanding tour guide. Her knowledge of Australian history along with historical anectdotes she shared made the tour one of the best we had in our three weeks in Australia. Do this tour first when in Sydney so you have a good understanding of local history. And ask for Luisa!

We were intrigued by the tour description and our guide, Kim, did not disappoint. This tour lasted approx 2 hours, I think, did not check my watch cause the time just flew, it was absolutely fascinating learning about Sydney's wild past. Kim was very knowledgeable and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a very interesting walk, ably guided by Madeline. Starting in the Rocks & ending at Hyde Park we were led through a fascinating history of the establishment & developement of the city. This is a great way to get to know Sydney. The other 2 tours are on our 'to-do' list.

My sister and I grew up in Sydney but decided to take a tour through an area we'd never really explored before. Our guide Michelle was very knowledgeable and friendly and we enjoyed her company. We learned some new things as well as being reminded of some of our history. We even got some good ideas for exploring The Rocks... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of Kings Cross. Our guide was very informative and gave us a new perspective and insight into the events that we hear about in the local press. We highly recommend this tour to locals as well as other tourists.

We stay in The Rocks at the Mercantile Hotel each year and have explored The Rocks on numerous occasions, however this time we decided to jump on the two feet & a heart beat walking tour. Our guide Michelle really made The Rocks and Tank Stream history "come alive". If we had time we would have done the other tours... More

Then I realised that there were walking tours and decided to go for it since I was pretty free on that particular night. The guide steven( is that your name? Haha I forgot) was pretty awesome and well informed on the areas... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our Crimes and Passions walking tour. Valentino provided a wealth of information and told us great stories about the area. We love walking tours, and this was one of the best -- it was a pleasure to have such a knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the "when rum ran the rocks" walking tour. My tour guide was Maddy, and I have to tell you she made the tour. She had a great talent of helping you envision the days of Sydney's colonization. But, the great selling points for me were as follows: a) Modern v Historic Sydney:... More
