A Recent Review of this tour

This is a perfect tour to introduce you to Sydney and all its forms of transportation. Helen was an outstanding guide giving us historical information in a professional yet humorous way. We were able to visit a number of neighborhoods and receive her recommendations for restaurants, etc. Being able to use the train, bus, light rail and ferry system made us feel very confident in heading out on our own. Would highly recommend this tour with Helen as soon as you land in Sydney!
