About
Experience Sydney in a time of a war, when the Razor Gangs battled for supremacy, & the balance between good & evil sat on the finest point of the sharpest razor's edge. Enjoy a leisurely guided walking tour retracing the key events of Sydney's Razor Gang War. Peel back the curtain to reveal the bee's knees soap-opera-like lives of the most celebrated gangsters from Sydney's roaring 1920s-1930s. Tread carefully through Razor Gang territory, exploring the old streets & alleyways, roamed by hatchet men that would not spill the beans- most of the time. Travel back to the high times of Sydney's Speakeasy party scene, replete with button men, saps, molls & dolls. Book your ticket now for the Cat's Meow investigation into a dark, razor-sharp, & crime-ridden history. Relive a time of larger than life personalities engaged in the sharp edge of a fully-fledged gang war. Immerse yourself in the troubles of infamous gangsters & get a taste for what it was like living outside the law.

Terrific afternoon walk and history of the razor gang wars of Sydney early last century. Caitlan our guide was very enthusiastic & full of knowledge of all the characters & events of these times, Seeing the area , the houses and walking around the lanes & alleyways and added to the atmosphere of the time. Thoroughly recommend this experience. Even us Sydneysiders can learn a lot about our own backyard.

Fabulous afternoon out and about. Caitlin our tour guide was very engaging and such a great story teller that you almost felt you had gone back in time. Fairly easy walk and we went at a comfortable pace. A wonderful experience that I would thoroughly recommend.

Fantastic tour with Caitlin learning all about the Razor gangs! Went to parts of Sydney I didn’t know existed. Learnt lots! Caitlin was a really great raconteur, and was able to add extra bits of info along the way. Walk was quite hilly, so sensible shoes are a must. Thanks for a great evening!

Jess was fantastic, full of energy and so engaging in her story telling of the Razor Gangs. So amazing to hear their stories and see where they lived and conducted business. We had dinner in the cross beforhand and enjoyed the walking afterwards on a balmy Friday night, definately wear comfy walking shoes . Will be doing the Rocks one for sure

The tour takes you to the houses where members of the Razor Gang lived and the guide was very respectful on the currant residence.
Great information delivered through enthusiastic story telling.

Thanks Jess for an entertaining night would highly recommend. great value.

Be prepared to do a bit of walking. The tour itself was very informative . Our tour guide Faren was very knowledgeable of the history of the Razorgang.
She was very clear when she spoke and her story telling was great and enthusiastic.
Darlinghurst itself is quite hilly so some people might find it a bit hard. However you can walk at your own pace if needed.
I sggest that you take a bottle of water with you to sip on whilst walking around.
We had a good night and even dressed in 1920's attire to compliment the evening.

Hi Victoria, thank you so much for being Razor Gang members. The both of you look fantastic in the 1920s attire; it was a delight to have you both on tour, and Faren was very excited and appreciative that you got into the spirit of the evening. Please come back anytime. Best Regards

Our tour guide was Jess and she was just fantastic. The tour was worth every cent and incredibly unique. We loved hearing all the true crime stories, learning about the key players of the underworld and seeing their stomping ground. Currently looking into what other dark history tours we can take !

Faren was a great tour guide! It was a nice different thing for a night out. Fun facts and great storytelling!
We started on time and the mix of the group was good, a young group of friends and another couple. I've been living for some years now in Sydney and both my husband and me really enjoyed it and recommend it!

Got a voucher as a bday gift from a dear friend, loved the idea!
