Lyndal was informative, entertaining and flexible. Lunch at Bondi Beach was amazing! She also gave us a lot of suggestions on what we could do over the next couple of days and fun places to eat. There were six of us and we all had a wonderful full day with her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lovely to see you enjoyed Sydney.! Happy travels. Lyndal
Linda GartlandBrookhaven, GA, United States
Lyndal has a very rich background in the Australian (not just Sydney) culture and helped us understand this at a very tangible level. She was the most knowledgeable guide we had along our Australia travels. She knows Sydney extremely well and helped us appreciate and understand the City at a deeper level than we got from guides in other cities. We highly recommend Lyndal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much Lynda.

Lyndal was AMAZING. We used her for 3 days while in Sydney. She is an EXPERIENCED World Class and actual has had world-wide experience as a tour guide. Her love and passion for Australia are second to none. She is great at Customizing on the run, knows her history of the area, and all the great spots to stop of lunch or dinner. Our Lobster on the warf area was the BEST WE'VE EVER had. Her drivers were amazing and our champagne welcome to Australia toast overlooking the city was a GREAT SURPRISE!! BOOK HER
Heidi BorcaUnited States
One of the best guides we have ever had. Certainly the most interesting and well traveled. We loved Sydney. We hope to cross paths with Lyndal again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Heidi, delightful day with you and your family. Appreciate your generous comments. Best wishes for many more years of happy travels!
Reuven SacherUnited States
Great overview of Sydney by a local pro who loves the city and knows its history. Our family, 16 people with wide range of ages, enjoyed the sights, the commentary and the "feel" of this exceptional city. Was especially good to do it on our first day, so that we could go 1back to specific places of interest (eg museums etc) on subsequent days. Highly reccomended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A great day with you and your family Reuven! Glad you enjoyed my beautiful city!! And please send your friends.... A need the work, haha!!!!
Jeff CrannellUnited States

Lorraine GlasscockUnited States
Loved loved our day that our group spent with Lyndal!! She's very very knowledgable ...not just about Sydney but Australia in general. Had lots of interesting little inside stories and insights about the sites and people of the area. We were so keen on extracting all her knowledge she lost her voice!! Sorry for that Lyndal!! I'm always high on our group booking local guides ...we were with a tour group but learned more in the day we spent with Lyndal than on our tour !!! You won't be dissapointed!! Book
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank,you Lorraine! I found my voice again soon after, so no harm done!! Delightful day with your friends! Happy travels Lyndal
Paula HopeUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Paula, I enjoyed sharing our city with you!
Walter RohrUnited States
Lyndal is very knowledgeable and an excellent guide. Our group of 6 toured with her 3 consecutive days and each day offered an experience different from the previous day but with wonderful, witty, educational, historical and personally touched commentary. We were all very pleased.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your generous comments, Walter. You and your friends were so keen to see everything! Delightful 3days! I wish you many more happy days to travel. Warm regards Lyndal
George S.United States
We had a splendid two days in Sydney with Lyndal! She is thoughtful and energetic and, most importantly, extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She took us to all of the best spots and gave us the real "insiders" tour.
George S.United States
We loved our time with Lyndal and will recommend her to all of our friends when they go to Sydney! I cannot imagine a better experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey lovely people!! I so enjoyed showing you Sydney!! You must come back again for some Gournet Sydney touring.... We have so many restaurants yet to show you!!! Hope you are enjoying the rest of your o so busy plans for the year, and that New York is MAGNIFICENT for Christmas. I loved being part of your Sydney experience. Blessings
Lyndal is a very experienced guide. We did not see much. This is because of our choice as we wanted a leisurely and casual tour at our own slow pace. But for the places we visited, she certainly impressed us as being vewry knowledgeable. She gave us so much of the historical background as should be necessary for us to understand the culture and hiistory without boring us with too much details. We were particualrly impressed by the visit to The Rocks in Sydney.
Ron RossenUnited States
Enjoyed the tour Initial part of the tour was walking through the Rocks and was the highlight-very informative regarding Sydney's history Travelled to some beautiful spots for magnificent views of the Harbor Would have preferred more walking and less driving Lunch stop average at best
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ron.....my description of the lunch stop was pub food.....reasonably priced, in a unique Aussie experience....Returned Soldiers Club where average Aussies socialize, quick service,and with a great view over Bondi beach. My thought was this is a particular Sydney experience which has many suitable ingredients.... If you had wanted a fine dining experience, there were other terrific choices with much higher prices, much slower service, without views...... Your wish would have been my command.... LS
Sandra KaplanUnited States
Lynda's is the consummate Sydney guide. Her breath of the historical knowledge was impressive. She showed us all the sites with insights and stories that enhanced our experience. Her sophistication and world experiences added a unique perspective She did everything that was promised I particularly liked the Rocks excursion She was wonderful company(as was Sam, the driver) and gave us an unforgettable day in brilliant Sydney
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: ms Kaplan! What a great day I had with you and Frank! Love New York and. New Yorkers......most enjoyable!! I'd drink champagne with you anytime!! I'll be thinking of you in the snow with deepest sympathy. And I am much encouraged by your marriage story! Bless you both!
Patti KoideUnited States
Lyndal met us at our hotel earlier than the appointed time. She was very knowledgeable and showed us around the historic Rocks area and Opera House. She was patient and answered all our questions on all subjects. During our tour in some of the residential areas and Bondi Beach, Lyndal knew the best spots to take pictures and thank to her, we got a wonderful panoramic picture of the entire city! Lyndal is very professional, prompt, knowledgeable, and personable. I highly recommend her tour! Patti Koide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: HI Pattie, a big thank you for your generous comments. I thoroughly enjoyed my day with you and your friends. It was a pleasure to show you my town! Warm regards Lyndal
Shirley S.United Kingdom
Our first trip to Sydney and Lyndal provided a great introductory tour. We covered a wide area and saw a variety of interesting places. Lyndal was friendly, accommodating and enthusiastic offering great restaurant and shopping tips which we used in the coming days. This is a great tour, which you can customise according to your interests. Lyndal is well travelled and knowledgeable on many subjects, making the day even better. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shirley and Viv, I appreciate your comments! I thoroughly enjoyed the day with you both. And in fact was thinking of you all throughout the holiday season...and quite envious of your wonderful New Years Eve plans!! What a night it was in Sydney Town! Hope it was all you wished for! Thanks for visiting us Downunder and escaping the chill winds of Monaco! Blessings LyndalS
James ParaUnited States
Lyndal was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable about all parts of Sydney. She made every minute and every word count in providing us with a delightful overview of all the important parts a Sydney. The combination of Lyndal and our driver Michael made for a very easy day of learning about Sydney while at the same time driving around Sydney. For those with only a day in Sydney I would give this tour my strongest recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: James! Bless you for taking the time to make this response, and such a great positive one for me! I thoroughly enjoyed the day with you all....didn't feel like work at all.....just like taking friends around my home town. Thanks for visiting us Downunder! and please send your friends as well!, the more the merrier for us!! may 2013 be a year crowned with goodness for you. Lyndal S Sydney
Lyndal was simply amazing! We had colleagues from the US who only had 8 hours in Sydney and Lyndal delighted them with a terrific tour. Lyndal was flexible and shared great local knowledge. I highly recommend this great service. :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you JO!!! I really had a great day with them, especially as I worked at the world fair in Spokane and experienced great kindness from people in the Pacific North West,so they hold a dear place in my heart!! And they were amazing with their enthusiasm after the long flight!!! Hope to be of service again if you have the need!
Val AzariUnited States
Lyndal was very concise & gave you a clear picture of the history of the city of Sydney. I learned quite a bit in a small period of time. Well done!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Val!!! looks like you're safely back home in Chicago! Thank you so much for the feedback. So very nice to spend time with you - I'm just sorry you weren't here longer so we could get out and have some fun!! Hope your aussie adventure was very satisfying. Happy days Lyndal
Tricia FarinoUnited States
We were a party of 6. Lyndal was prompt, very knowledgeable and knew where to take pictures to the best advantage. If we tried to see Sydney on our own we would have missed alot of history. We all enjoyed Lyndal's tour and you will be happy with her also.
Angela TichenorUnited States
Lyndal was an incredibly "darling" guide! ( Lot's of darlings in Sydney) She was quite informative, knowledgeable and fun!! My husband and I had the most wonderful day with her! Lyndal was prepared, punctual and adapted the tour based on her anticipation of our interests. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend that if you are in Sydney. Lyndal is an ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE guide... Thank you for a wonderful time! OH and I was able to find Lord Nelson's from your directions! Bill left QUITE thrilled!! Thank you again!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: HI Angela and Bill, I had a thoroughly enjoyable day with you both. And thank you for your generous comments. I'm delighted you are now getting down to explore the REAL Sydney. Please contact me if I can help further. Lyndal
Don BarnesUnited States
We give this tour 5 stars! Lyndal was extremely knowledgeable and tailored our tour to our specific interests -- which was no small feat given that we had two adults and two teenage daughters. We only had a layover of a few hours in Sydney; and Lyndal promptly collected us at the airport and gave us an excellent overview of the city with plenty of photo-ops. Strongly recommend Lyndel and this service.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bless you Don! So nice you have launched my ratings with five stars. I had a thoroughly lovely day with you and your family. And I am hoping the Land of the Wrong White Crowd aka the Land of the Long White Cloud(NZ) is treating you kindly.
