With only 3 days to spend in Sydney,planning your sight seeing is vital. Why not leave it to the pros? Four of us signed up for a private tour of Sydney called the Story of Sydney with Ultimate Sydney. We were picked up at our hotel in a van and spent four fully packed hours seeing the city.

We are just out of the van from our Elusive North Tour with Naomi. This is the second tour we experienced this week. Our first tour was a part of a tour we were on and we were on a food tour with Rohnen. The tour was one of the best we'd taken - light hearted, well conducted visting the... More

A truly well named tour experience! Naomi was full of information and besides being an excellent guide, was happy to photograph my friend and myself at every opportunity - and there were many!!! Sydney was at its glorious best and, because we weren't in a huge bus, we could explore more fully. Thank you Naomi & Ultimately Sydney. The drop... More

The driver was fantastic. We left the city and headed north stopping at beachfront cliffs that overlook the harbor. Some were in rich residential areas, public parks, and Army bases converted to residential. We walked trails and I learned a lot about Sydney's history and culture. At each stop you can see the previous stops so you get an idea... More

In planning a future trip requested a quote for an 8 hour city tour for two. Was quoted a whopping $800.00. The cost did not include admission to attractions (e.g. opera house) and others or food. When I followed up on why the quote was so high, never got a response.

We had been referred to Ultimately Sydney Tours by some friends and we were equally as impressed by the tour. Helen was our guide and she was very knowledgable, friendly and entertaining. The places we visited really were hidden treasures that are great quality produce and very reasonable prices. We live in Sydney and will be going back to the... More

My husband and I made the best choice to spend one afternoon with Alex of Ultimately Sydney. We only had 3 full days in this city and we couldn't be more happy with the tour Alex has given us.

My wife and I spent the afternoon on Sunday on the half day tour of Sydney. Rohan, our guide, did an excellent job showing us the sites around the town, sharing Sydney history, and commenting on current society. We had several nicely placed stops, and Rohan always volunteered to take our pictures. While I had to sit in the back... More

Probably the best city tour we have experienced anywhere - the whole experience was excellent and so informative. Helen made it fun, educational and a relaxing way to see all that Sydney and her various neighbourhoods has to offer. Thank you hugely.

This was good fun. We've done a couple of Maeve O'Meara tours, and enjoyed them as well. Our tour had a couple of problems with the scheduled driver falling ill just before departure. Helen did a wonderful job filling in at short notice. I think the route might need to be reconsidered to make allowance for Sydney traffic on a... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour overall. We like to think that the boutique nature of the experience is of high value especially in a group of only 6 passengers. Yes, Sydney traffic was a challenge for all of our tours yesterday for some reason? I am sorry you were not... More
