We enjoyed a three hour tour of Sydney and it seemed like we had seen the whole city and learned all the historic points. The Guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic tour in a short amout of time that we had. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE COMPANY

Thank you for your review. We know condensing the entire Story of Sydney in only 3 hours seems a bit rushed, but it can be done well as long we focus on the important and interesting bits and not get to involved in the detail. We are very happy that you enjoyed the experience. More

I recently had the privilege to meet Pater and Sarina Raineri while on a food tour and they are simply delightful people! They shared their story or starting this deli 35 years ago and how their children are involved in the family business and taking the reigns from them. They shared with us delectable plates of antipasto dishes including olives,... More

I had just a few days off in Sydney on a business trip. To explore the city one can of course take one of the standard tours, for instance the hop on-hop off one. This will give you a first impression based on general information. I decided to take the tour with Ultimately Sydney, first to the 'elusive North'. This... More

We did this food tour on Friday. It was fabulous. The guide Rohan was very knowledgeable and adapted the tour to the audience. All the places we went to were excellent but my particular favourite was Sweet Belem Cake Boutique. Well worth it.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
