A Recent Review of this guide

She was our first experience with T.B.L. and she was terrific!! Brenda was a wealth of information about Sydney and specifically the Fortress, which was awesome! This was a customized tour for the four of us and we felt well cared for in her capable hands, we went at our pace and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! Thanks Brenda for a wonderful day!
