Alison was a great tour guide, and we had a very informative time. We learnt many things, and it was a great experience. At no time, did we feel unsafe, and even stayed for a meal in the Cross, which we may not have done otherwise. Thanks, and we will recommend to our friends!!!!

Kim was a great tour host, very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the district.The whole tour had a very friendly feel. I'd be really interested in one of the Surry Hills area, it must have it's own stories to tell.

Just Outstanding. This was one of the best and most interesting walking tours I've even taken, and I've done quite a few. Kim is deeply knowledgeable about the area and weaves a compelling story across ages and characters that really makes you feel like you can reach out and touch history. If you do only one thing in Sydney, go... 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.
