Our Real Sydney and Hunter Valley private tours with Darryl were the best experiences we had in Australia. Darryl was wonderful through it all. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable, she is the nicest person you'd want to spend time with. She took us to places that we would not have gone on our own and made great recommendations for other places and restaurants to explore. We were going to do the Real Blue Mountains tour with her as well but our trip was cut short due to Covid-19. We will definitely book with Darryl again the next time we go to Sydney!

This magical tour to the Hawkesbury River and Brooklyn was absolutely fabulous. Wolfgang and Darryl our tour guards /drivers were vibrant , extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun . From the moment you are seated in their five star first class transport you not only feel safe but very fortunate .The other tourists onboard were friendly and very easy to be with . As a solo traveller that is an added bonus .
Our hosts take care to make appropriate pit stops for the group making the trip very comfortable.
Views of the wonderful bush and Hawkesbury River were magical such a perfect day . Wolfgang and Darryl happily sharing their experiences and knowledge with us all .

We made a stop at the working oyster beds at the “Oyster Shed” in Moonie Moonie , the weather was beautiful and it looked like an absolutely perfect spot to eat on another trip hopefully.

After a short and very pleasant walk in Brooklyn we had the most fabulous lunch at the “Lifeboat Seafood “ The food was first class and the company perfect . The staff were so friendly In particular Marcus he made our day special , he said ,” our group had made his day too “.

Our hosts returned us to Sydney Safe and sound , I highly recommend Real Sydney tours our host add such a personal touch to a perfect day out . 😊

For our 40th wedding anniversary, my husband and I went to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in our lives. The Real Sydney private tour was one of the highlights of our trip and set the tone for the rest of our time in Australia.

Our punctual tour guide Darryl, picked us up from our hotel in a comfortable van, equiped with a step stool for short people, like me. She also delivered us on time to a restaurant, for a meal and another tour scheduled directly after this one.

We couldn't pick just one part of the tour as a favorite, so here are numerous elements of the tour we liked:

Darryl entertained us with an encyclopedia of information about Sydney without over sharing.

Darryl took us to places we wouldn't have traveled to on our own, like Mrs. Macquarie's chair and more out of the way, beautiful parks.

We went to the best places to take photos of the famous Sydney landmarks such as the Opera House juxtaposed with the Harbour Bridge and skyline.

Darryl gave us advice on where to shop for opals and helped us take pictures.

Darryl knew the best routes to take to avoid multiple road construction and traffic congestion in Sydney, so we could spend more time exploring this town.

Here are some helpful tips to make your tour more enjoyable:

Don't forget to bring a camera as there are tons of photo opportunities on this tour.

If you go in October, which is spring in Australia, make sure to bring a rain jacket, a light sweater (pullover) and layered clothing.

Wear walking shoes, because althrough this is a van tour, there are many stops to explore while walking.

Allow at least four to six hours for this tour.

Come with prepared questions about Sydney, for example, its history or where is the best places to eat your faviorite foods, tea, romantic meals, clothes shopping, sport activities and museums, ect.

Know that this tour can be customized to meet your needs, so put in writing what you would like to do before hand.

We would take another private tour with Darryl and Real Sydney tours based upon our prior experience. This activitiy is well worth the expensive.

Today we took a city tour with our guide Darryl Sloshberg. She was an excellent guide who gave us a good overall tour of Sydney. We drove to many different areas where she gave us information of the area and how it became. We walked a little and really got an idea of what Sydney is all about. We would highly recommend this tour especially if your time is limited. Ask for Darryl she is very good.

We reached out to Darryl after reading other review on Trip Advisor a few months ago mentioning we would be in Sydney for a couple of days before boarding the Majestic Princess for a 2 week cruise. She couldn’t have been more informative, supportive, and overall just fun to be with. She ended up building a 6 hour tour on Friday to the Jewish Heritage Sites and the Other key sites of Sydney, including an extensive time in the Rock and Bondi Beach as well as the Jewish Museum, a personalized tour of “Our Big Kitchen”, the Gorgeous Central Synagogue, and so many other sites, giving us a great feel for what is is like to be Jewish in Sydney, as well as being an original settler during life way back when. We even stopped for a delicious “Tiger” at Harry’s Meat Pies like people have been doing for well into the last Century. She gave us such a great tour, and the next day, she talked us out of the Zoo, and instead had her good friend Wolfie drive us to the Featherdale Wildlife Preserve about an hour west of town to see Koala’s, Kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils, Wombats and other native Australian species up close and personal. Wolfie even escorted us through the preserve explaining all the animals and how they lived. We then drove to the 2000 Olympic Area which was of special interest to us to spend some time walking throughout the complex for some time. Wolfie had a totally different perspective of what it was like to be a non-Jewish immigrant making a go of it in Sydney and we really enjoyed our day with him, also. Finally he put us on a relaxing ferry that brought us all the way back to Circular Quay. It cost a little bit more, but to have a 2-day personalized tour of all the sites and feeling of Sydney was phenomenal (we had already toured the opera house the day before when we arrived, so she customized everything for us so we crossed the harbor bridge and did other things instead). When looking for a special souvenir of our 2 days in Sydney, she suggested each of us purchase a special aborigine designed teal kippot, which we proudly wore at our granddaughter’s baby naming the week after returning from our cruise.

We can’t thank Darryl and her team at Real Sydney Tours enough. We had a great time!

We had an absolutely delightful tour of Sydney with Darryl. She is a knowledgable, friendly guide with a great sense of humor. She navigated through Sydney’s many lovely neighborhoods, gave us a bit of time for shopping in the open market at “the Rocks”,and stopped at a few amazing little parks along the bay. She tailors the tour to her audience, and is capable of filling in as much or as little historical detail as you like. She mixed in a few stories about famous celebrities as well. If you are planning a trip to Sydney, be sure to book a tour with Darryl.

Darryl was an absolute treat. This was not only a tour of Jewish Sydney, Darryl gave us a breath and wealth of understanding of the history of Australia, the history of Sydney, the history of immigrants to Australia and, of course, the history of Jewish Australia. Darryl was warm, informative, entertaining and a treat to spend the day with. Whether you are Jewish or not, you need to ask for the Jewish tour of Sidney with Darryl. Thank you !
