We recently returned from a wonderful trip to Australia and New Zealand where we arranged tours in many of the cities we visited. Our last tour before leaving for home was with Suanne from Real Sydney tours. What a wonderful way to end our trip! Suanne worked with us via email prior to our tour to customize the day to suit to our own pace, interests and wishes. At our request she combined a trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park with many of the components of the Real Sydney tour described on her website. Suanne was attentive to our input throughout the day, further adjusting our activities to optimize our experience as she got to know us better. The resulting tour was wonderful.
Suanne is a fabulous guide and was a great companion for the day. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Sydney and how to best navigate the area. We greatly enjoyed chatting with her and felt like we were all good friends by the end of the day. Suanne consistently went above and beyond what I would expect from a guide, always looking for ways to facilitate making our day as memorable, easy and enjoyable as possible. For example, holding purses and hats while we engaged the animals or took pictures, volunteering to take photos of the two of us together (she’s really good at this-her pictures of the two of us together are wonderful memories), providing classic Australian snacks midmorning as well as a goody bag for our trip on the ferry from Olympic Park, etc. Suanne expertly navigated Featherdale Wildlife Park for us, timing our visit to various areas to avoid the crowds and experience features we likely would not have found on our own. A few of the other many highlights of our day included lunch at the private Bondi Iceburgs club (we could go because Suanne is a member) which we believe has the best view of Bondi beach imaginable, and feeding the amazing birds who live in the wild near the lake at Centennial Park. Suanne also recommended unique and affordable places to eat for dinner when we asked, and these proved better alternatives than the concierges at our hotel had suggested. We give Suanne and Real Sidney Tours our highest recommendation; we are so grateful we booked our tour with them.
