Our private tour to the Blue mountains was great! Mark, our guide couldn’t have been better. He got us to all the places we wanted to see before the crowds like Featherdale zoo, scenic world and did the hikes and less busy sites after. The office communication/coordinating was good, pickup and drop-off were seamless. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed a Jewish heritage tour of Sydney with Eddy Krieger. Eddy took us to Sydney’s Jewish Museum to learn about Sydney’s Jewish presence since the First Fleet’s arrival, and the contributions of many Jewish Australians, not least of which was General Sir John Monash. Most of our time, however, was spent touring Sydney’s northeastern suburbs, visiting Central Synagogue in Bondi Junction, a nearby food pantry, taking in views of Sydney’s CBD from Double Bay and Rose Bay, and of famous Bondi Beach from its Iceberg Club. But the best part of the tour was Eddy himself, whose family history from Egypt and Greece to life in Australia was as intriguing as the sights. It was a fun and educational day.

I’d like to congratulate Darryl and the team for making our trip to Dangar Island such a memorable experience. The weather was perfect (ok that part is good luck) and the pace was leisurely and relaxing. A boat ride in a beautifully restored timber boat across the Hawkesbury river was a treat as we saw locals transporting their shopping from the mainland to their island home or returning home from other travels. Darryl had organised lunch on the waterfront at the quaint cafe but not before taking us on a walking tour of this car less paradise. Beautiful views all around and a strip of beach paradise was there to be discovered. I could go on but to sum up the day I would say if you want a relaxing day with a knowledgable and personable guide contact Darryl and the team. I’m so glad we did.

We decided to do a tour with Real Sydney Tours in Byron - we have been to Byron Bay as a couple already 6 times but we have never seen it, like we did on this trip.
Darryl was able to take us to all the secret spots through Bruns, Mullum, Oceans Shore which allowed us to see all the special spots of Byron Bay and its region.

We managed to visit the Mullumbimby Markets, visit the local shops in Brunswick, sample beers and food at Eltham Pub and Tumblegum, have coffee at local spots and drive through the beautiful hinterland. We also managed to take a long walk on Oceans Shore and take the paths off the beaten track.

Importantly we were chauffeured through the lush Hinterland which is often precarious to travel through (especially post rain) in a luxury vehicle and managed to have a few wines (without the worry)! There was plenty of space and we felt extremely comfortable travelling for almost 3 days straight.

The highlight of our tour was a long lunch at the Hut that Darryl suggested and booked, sneaking in a gin or 2 at the Byron Bay Distillery afterwards. We also loved the local touches such as being able to go to local pubs and shops where not many locals go.

We loved the tour so much that we actually decided after day 1 that we we were going to do 2 more tours in the week that we were in Byron. Despite going to Byron many times before, we really felt like we got to tour, taste and enjoy Byron Bay and its surrounds like never before. Definitely a must - even if you have "done Byron before".

We had very little time to see Sydney so we booked the Sydney and Jewish Australia 4 hour tour. Darryl was great getting back to me right away since we booked somewhat last minute. Eddy was our tour guide and he gave us a great tour of Sydney with a Jewish twist. The tour worked out perfectly since we arranged for pick up right after our Opera House tour and were back to rest before our bridge climb. Thanks to Eddy for making our only day in Sydney a great one.

We took a 6 hour Sydney tour plus Jewish Sydney tour with Darryll and it was a fantastic day. We saw all different parts of the city, both on foot and by car. Darryll had so much knowledge, and a wonderful way of presenting the information. She enhanced the beauty of this fabulous city.
If you have interest in Jewish heritage. Make sure you add on that part of the tour as it should not be missed. The places she took us to and the people we met will have an everlasting mark on us, not only for the beauty, but also for how meaningful the experiences were. Do not pass up a day tour with Daryll.

We did a 6 hour Jewish tour + genera Sydney tour with Darryl and it was a fantastic, busy, informative day. Darryl is a real expert on Sydney’s history, neighborhoods and culture and, for those interested, provides unique tour elements related to Sydney’s Jewish history and community. This was really special and unique for us. We also loved getting out of downtown to see some of the Eastern suburbs and Bondi Beach, which we wouldn’t have otherwise done. Darryl was great about customizing the day for our interests and needs, and she happily answered our many questions. I highly recommend Darryl if you want the inside scoop on Sydney, especially the Jewish side of the city.

Talk about a company that goes out of their way to make you feel special, this one does! Tour guide was very knowledgeable an shared his insites of Sydney. He made our day extremely enjoyable and we now have a greater knowledge of Sydney. The tour company owner was very accommodating and went out of her way to help solve a problem we incurred. I give this company 5 stars.
