Sharon TippleUnited States
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!
Barbara SegalUnited States
We totally enjoyed our morning with Daryl. We found it so interesting to learn of the thriving Jewish Community in Sydney. 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!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review Barbara.I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you guys.

Louise BeldonSan Antonio, TEXAS, United States
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.

Bruce FeinermanWest Palm Beach, FL, United States
Darryl was teriffic. She showed up exactly on time, knew the history of Sydney both Jewish and non-Jewish. Had a hands on tour where we met people in the community and got to see all of the important sites in Sydney both with and without Jewish history. I would recommend her for anyone who wants to take this tour, or even take any tour in Sydney.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for you terrific review.I really appreciate you recommending me.

Daryl loves her city and conveys it with enthusiasm and knowledge. If you're interested in all the nocks and crannies, beaches, lookouts, shops, lifestyle, and historical perspective, Daryl is the guide for you. Her personable, caring and knowledgeable introduction to Sydney left us knowing we made the perfect decision.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your superb review.I loved spending time with you guys.You are interesting,inspiring and enthusiastic! I will send the photos on. Warmest regards Darryl
A very professional and interesting day with Darryl. We had been in Sydney several years ago, tried to "see" the city on our own, but left feeling that it had little to offer. Darryl has turned us around. Our few post-cruise hours together showed us a beautiful and vibrant Sydney. Thanks so much for everything, Darryl, and hoping to meet up again soon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your fabulous review.I really enjoyed showing you guys the local Sydney we enjoy. Hopefully we can meet again. Much appreciated Darryl

Friendly and knowledgeable. Had an itinerary planned but we were able to tweak it to our desire. Unfortunately it was Passover and the Jewish points of interest were closed. Would use again if we visit in the future and recommend Darryl.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating Ruth and for taking the time to do it.It is a pity much was closed due to the Passover holiday and I would be delighted to have you guys with me again.

My wife and I had a wonderful tour of Sydney with Darryl. She was informative and enthusiastic, and provided us with loads of interesting and valuable information about Sydney and the surrounding areas that we would never have learned without her. She also went out of her way to arrange for us to gain entry to a beautiful Synagogue. We would highly recommend her for any tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your fabulous review.I loved my time with you two and appreciate your review so much.I hope to see you guys again.

Our tour of Jewish Sidney was exceptional. It provided us not only with the Jewish history of Sydney, but also a great orientation to the city and its many neighborhoods and monuments. Our guide, Darryl S, was terrific in every way. Her obvious knowledge and enthusiasm for her adopted city made the time with her an absolute delight. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Thank you for your exceptional reviee.I really appreciate it .You guys were so much fun too !

Judi RobinovitzUnited States
Our only disappointment was.... not spending more time with Darryl! Not only does she really know Sydney, its surrounding environs, and the history of Australia, but she is so charismatic and delightful to spend time with! We especially enjoyed the Jewish highlights -- and cappuccino at Bills in Bondi Junction. We would use Darryl again and again in a heartbeat!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow thank you for such a fabulous review!It was such a pleasure to have you guys tour with me and I feel like I have made two wonderful new friends.I am so glad you enjoyed it.
