We were able to view the synagogue, and go to the Jewish Museum for a tour about the Holocaust and hear stories about survivors who live in Australia. The Jewish community is very vibrant in Sydney and Darryl gave us a very informative tour. Definitely well worth it and she was delightful.

Darryl was the perfect tour guide. She was very friendly, very well informed and eager to share all of the things she loves about Sydney. We did a short tour of the city and she showed me some of the wonderful Sydney neighborhoods that make the city so great. The tour was totally at MY pace and I appreciated that. I need to go back because we had only one short day to explore and there really is so much to see and so there. When I DO go back, I will call Darryl!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your fabulous review.You were delightful company.See you next time!

Darryl was wonderful from the beginning. She was very responsive by email beforehand letting us know where and when to meet her. She picked us up at the Sydney airport right on time and took us on a great 4 hour tour of the city while answering our questions all along the way. We were able to get a great lay of the land and then conveniently dropped off at our hotel when we were finished to check in. The information that we learned from Darryl made the rest of our time here in Sydney incredibly productive

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sharon, Thank you for your fabulous review.I loved spending time with you and your family and introducing you to this beautiful city. I am glad the information was useful so you could maximize the time you had here.I appreciate you taking the time to post a review.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your terrific review I loved showing you guys around and am so happy you got to try that famous Tiger pie!

She also was knowlageable about all things Sydney and was eager to share as much as she could with and we got to see so much of what we wouldn't have been able to see on other tours. We would totally recommend this tour!!!

We both enjoyed Darryl and her knowledge and love of Sydney. We thought that the tour was a bit long for her topic and what there is to see. I would suggest that she offer two options: (1) Jewish Heritage tour-maybe 2 hours-and could add another designated site unrelated to Jewish history for extended time and (2) option to include Holocaust Museum and Jewish shops-4 hours. Since we were not interested in the Museum or shops, I think that Darry struggled to fill our time slot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thank you for your feedback.My Jewish Heritage Tour takes in a lot of Sydney .There is so much to show my visitors I usually do not have enough time.The visit to the Jewish Museum and shops is listed on the itinerary description and if you are not interested in either you could have expressed this to me and I would have amended it to suit.
