See the city highlights with a local

Perfect for people with limited time, this tour whisks you around, taking in the highlights of the city and its beaches, first by foot and then from the comfort of a private car.

We start by traveling back in time through Sydney's colonial past in The Rocks. Walking through Circular Quay to the famed Opera House, we'll pass time in the Royal Botanic Gardens to the vantage point of vantage points - Mrs Macquarie's Chair. Escaping the humidity, we'll drive on to Bondi - Sydney's closest stretch of sand and water, and finally to Darling Harbour - a waterfront leisure precinct that throbs with activity day and night.

This is the abridged way to take in as much city and harbour as possible!

A Recent Review of this tour

Darryl was awesome! During the short time that we had before she took us to the airport we were able to see so many of the famous sights of Sydney. She made sure I got to eat a famous Harry's meat pie. She carefully watched the time to be sure we would get to the airport in plenty of time. She is friendly and knowledgeable. It is obvious that she loves to show guests around this beautiful city.
