Walking tour was very informative, and Mario offered local history and perspective on the development of Sydney's historically gay neighborhood. We were able to book the tour on pretty short notice (offseason). The tour can be very personalized depending on group size and interests. You will benefit most from the tour if it is one of your first activities in Sydney, rather than the very last as it was for us. After traveling for several weeks and with one of us feeling under-the-weather, we were probably the most "boring" couple Mario has ever had on a tour. We recommend taking this tour when you can relax and enjoy the local atmosphere, rather when you need to be up early the next morning to catch a flight. It is especially nice to get a feel for the area with a local rather than wandering on your own, especially as a foreign tourist. Thank you for a great tour and for providing travel services tailored to our community.

Mario came highly recommended and he did not disappoint. He helped us book several tours in both Sydney and Melbourne. Communication by email was easy and stress free. We would also like to thank Barry for being such a great guide during our time at Featherdale Wildlife Park.

Recently we used Planetdwellers to book a holiday to Australia. I can't say enough about Mario, Barry, Jim and the team and all the help that they provided. Their responsiveness was awesome and they continued to provide guidance on different tours and cities to visit. When we finally ended our trip in Sydney, Jim was great on our 2-hour walking tour about Sydney's gay history and provided us a great overview of the city. We will definitely be using them again in the future!!!

We had booked a walkingtour of 2 hours about sydneys gay history. And we got Mario Paez. A lovely, charming and espaccilay very competent guy in upcoming gay rights and its history. We walked with him through beautiful suburbs like Potts Point, Darlinghurst, Kings Cross and got know many details, how times changed, after gay right movement has started. An absolut recommodation for all, who are interested in this subject. In the end, we had a drink with Mario at Green Park, including a small privat chat. Thanks Mario for yr extra time. All the best for you. Your only two germans-tour with Frank and Thomas

Big thank you to Barry for an amazing full day outside of Sydney experiencing the Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves! Barry is a true gentleman and fabulous tour guide providing us door-to-door service from our hotel and sharing non-stop insights and stories about the history, science and sights of Australia. It was our first trip Down Under and our only tour outside of Sydney. We were so happy to be out in nature and be able to see so much wildlife first-hand -- wombats, wallabies, kangaroos, cockatoos, and the rarely seen platypus! We wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Highest marks for Barry and Planetdwellers!
