Owner description: We are architects and we want to share Sydney with you. We organise intimate walking and bicycle tours that are open to the general public. We also arrange private / customised architectural tours and itineraries on request. Taking the form of a series of urban provocations, our conversations are straightforward and jargon-free exercises in story telling. Aimed at the expert-enthusiast, we want you to understand the 'why' of the city whilst exploring the most provocative and daring projects Sydney houses; works of architecture, public art and landscape that inspire and delight but also projects that reveal something of Sydney's grimy pulse. We are interested in ideas and in the drivers of city; the vibrant network of invisible forces - political, cultural, economic and environmental that give the city form. Get stung by architecture. Sydney will never look the same again. Promise!

It's not coincidence that these guys get 5 star reviews. Eoghan knew so much about the city's architectural history and the walk completely changed my perspective on architecture. Very, very highly recommended.

A tour around the Sydney opera house like no other. Insightful, tailored to the groups interests, and a conversation opposed to a lecture. Will do other tours when again in Sydney. Value for money and a great day.

A fantastic tour highly recommended to, well, just about anyone.

Topics discussed ranged from the birth of Sydney right up to the present day, offering an insight into just about every aspect of the built environment. You'll wonder how you learnt so much in 2 hours!

It's the kind of tour that'll leave you with enough knowledge, and most importantly, excitement and intrigue, to be questioning even the most mundane building around you for days, weeks, if not forever. It's a tour heartily seasoned with personal insight and opinion.

If I were in Sydney for any longer, I'd do each tour they offer in turn. As it stands, I look forward to returning!

My dad and I did the SAW 3 walk with Eoghan and it was seriously awesome. Eoghan was knowledgeable, friendly and a real pleasure to spend the morning with. Such an interesting tour - would highly recommend!
