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 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

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed our Story of Sydney tour. We are very proud of the effect that the commentary has on people. Sydney has a great story and to hear it in only 3.5 hours gives loads of time to explore for the rest of the day. More

Wonderful tour! Rohan our driver was great! A host of knowledge about Sydney and the specific area we were visiting. Had interesting little stories and pointed out good little places to visit and eat at as we were driving along. Being locals it was wonderful to be a tourist for a day is our own city.

We loved the gourmet food tour. It was a wedding present and we took ages to book it in. I cannot believe how many great food outlets and cool places exist of within 15 minutes drive of our home.
