We were visiting Sydney on a cruise and wanted an overview of the city in one day. Peter's tour did just that by taking us to all of the sites and neighborhoods. He was very knowledgeable and provided excellent commentary along the way. More than that, he was very personable and we really enjoyed the day with him. I highly recommend his services if you have limited time and want to see the many great areas of Sydney that are out of the immediate downtown area.

After months cooped up, this tour reignited my love affair with Sydney, our home city. My 8yo daughter and I were collected by Peter yesterday morning from our home for a day of many firsts for both of us. My daughter was super impressed that his immaculate VW van was classed as a limo so we could take the bus lane like VIPs! Peter was so knowledgeable, being a Sydney-sider born and bred (whereas I am not), was terrific company, and had thought of every single detail so we could just relax and enjoy so many experiences that I realistically couldn’t/wouldn’t put together myself. Before the pandemic, I wouldn’t have thought to tour my home city, but I fully recommend this experience as Peter made everything easy. I now have a long list of activities to get away from the screens and take advantage of our harbour city.

Many thanks for your review, Suzanne! It's always a challenge to impress locals with their own city, let alone show them something brand new. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and I'm really pleased you both did too

Hands down the best prepared, informative, knowledgable guide I have ever met. Sydney tour was effortless. Explanations, jokes, sarcasm at times, ease of communication and, above all, data books about australia’s global place prepared meticulously made this memorable and one of a kind experience.
Highly recommended.

After researching on TripAdvisor, we [two adults and two teens] took two all day tours with Peter on a trip to Sydney in March 2018: the "Regular Attractions Tour" of Sydney and the "Blue Mountains & Featherdale Wildlife Park" tour. We took the Sydney Tour first followed by the Blue Mountains tour two days later. Peter had a well established plan, was right on time and had some surprises in story.

The Sydney Tour consisted of two loops - a southern loop and a northern loop - tied together with a walk across the harbor bridge. Each loop included a good walk where Peter got us started, drove to the other end and then walked back to meet us. This plan worked well. Trip ended up with Peter dropping us at Manly Beach for a swim and a Ferry ride back to the hotel. While there were a number of highlights, maybe the best part was the surprise bird feeding in the botanical gardens near the beginning of the day. We had birds eating out of our hands and sitting on our heads.

The Blue Mountains tour was also memorable. We started early so that we could be at the Featherdale Wildlife Park by 8 am {tours get in early]. A huge number of animals to see and feed. We had never witnessed koalas running around on the ground before [they were hungry]. I highly recommend Featherdale. We then headed to the Scenic Railway and the Blue Mountains. Peter had a plan to ride all of the rides at the Railway and worked in a downhill hike for us [much better than an uphill hike]. Please note that everything on the tour was customizable and at our own pace.

In addition to the Tours, Peter is quite a nice guy and very interesting. I enjoyed our discussions on many different topics and learned a lot about Australia and Sydney. I would highly recommend Bailey's Sydney Tours.

What a truly lovely review! Thank you, Frank, for taking the time to write about our tour days together, in detail. This is how I would hope my two most popular tours are always perceived to be. These are great experiences

We had done tours of Sydney in the past and enjoyed our visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Peter drove us through many Sydney neighborhoods, but was very argumentative and disparaging of the US. He didn’t seem to know a lot of Sydney’s history and argued that my husband was wrong when he tried to point out interesting bits. We won’t use him again.

Your husband spent the day, persistently and belligerently, interrupting me with "interesting bits" that were, almost without exception, wrong. I largely ignored his comments, but corrected him where I felt it was important to do so. Towards the end of the tour, you admitted that his memory was failing in his old age. You even volunteered several pieces of information about yourselves that he’d gotten wrong throughout the day As for my depth of knowledge of Sydney's history, I had only limited opportunities to share it since 99% of the commentary on the tour was provided by your husband

Peter was a very knowledgable and helpful guide, we could not have chosen better.
I have mobility issues for which Peter made every allowance and he managed to get us to the best places to take photos and take in the scenery.

His knowledge of Sydney and its history was almost encyclopaedic, a thoroughly enjoyable morning.

(Sorry it's almost a year since our tour, still catching up!)

Peter's tour promised to show us the undiscovered parts of Sydney and certainly lived up to expectations. He was very professional and friendly throughout and catered the tour to our wishes, as we'd already explored certain areas on foot. It was great to see all the different areas of Sydney and get a feel for how it all fit together around the water. We went on a few short hikes, Bondi to Coogee being the best, and Peter always met us at the other end. We stopped at a great place for lunch and also took the Manly ferry back to Circular Quay, before Peter dropped us at the airport. Just having someone who has lived in Sydney all his life and knew everything without reciting it all by rote was great, and it was the only way to do these short walks without the nightmare of taxis or public transport. Not only did we feel we learnt a lot about ordinary Sydney people's lives, but we had a great day out full of wonderful views. An excellent tour.

My wife and I visited Sydney with another couple in January and engaged Peter for a full day driving/walking tour of Sydney and surrounds on the MAIN ATTRACTIONS & MORE TOUR. We have had the benefit of great guides of the highest ability on several continents ... and Peter quickly jumped into the top 5 on our lifetime list. While many are pleasant and great at visiting and touring, Peter's laid back Aussie humor and style brings the area alive ... with a spark of wit and wisdom. He met us with his comfortable blue/silver van at our hotel, had planned our visit so we became familiar and comfortable with the local ferry system, made great restaurant recommendations, explained what and where we would tour, and engaged our imagination throughout. To really bring things alive, he kicked us out of the van and made us walk! Brilliant! It was, truly, as we walked iconic path's from Mrs MacQueries Chair, the coastal path from Bondi Beach, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and then from the Spit up towards Manly Beach. All of these walks got us to really look and remember, and every gorgeous site in Sydney is one to treasure. And thanks to Peter Bailey and having our friends join, all of these memories and learnings were also a lot of FUN! I highly recommend. There is a reason Peter is rated 5-star by many.
