Owner description: Whether you’re a history buff or know nothing of Manly’s history this tour is a must! It gives a snap shot of significant historical events & people since English settlement in 1788. We walk from the beautiful harbor of Sydney and wind our way through the oldest parts of the Village. You will hear fascinating stories about the First Fleet, Convict land grants, Castles, Who built Manly and much much more. A great way to relax and see Manly.

“History of Manly bought to life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Thank you for an awesome morning in one of Sydney's iconic suburbs. Very informative for tourist and locals alike. I've spent a lot of my life in Manly and learnt so many things from Karen I never knew before. Thank you again for a lovely morning strolling around the foreshores of Manly, while you bought our history to life!

“A great way to learn a bit of history with a fun, informative guide!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

We have spent a lot of time in Manly, but still learned a lot from Karen, as we strolled around on our walking tour. She was well-prepared, and brought tidbits of history to life in an interesting and fun manner. The cost was very reasonable and the hour flew by. We liked her period outfit too!

“Very enjoyable way to learn of Manly's history and lore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

During a week stay in Manly, we contacted Karen’s Walking Tours Of Manly to organize an evening tour for attendees of a conference we were hosting. Karen proved to be very knowledgeable, personable, and flexible (even adjusting the tour so we could grab a pint en route). She enthusiastically imparted a great deal of Manly history and lore in our couple hours strolling together – pointing out buildings and sights that we would have overlooked. If you’re a walking tour fan with an hour or two to spare in Manly, this is a very enjoyable way to learn a bit more about this charming, beach town.
