Tour: Historic Rocks and Opera House:3 Hour Guided Walk:Bestseller, Sydney, NSW, Australia
Date: Feb 5/19

We give Ivy the highest rating of 5 stars. She was wonderful! This was a gift for my mother-in-law's birthday. She said the tour was great and they really enjoyed learning about the history and culture of Sydney from Ivy. She was very knowledgeable. She really went above and beyond. She even stopped into their hotel a few days before they arrived to make sure it was noted that it was my mother-in-law's birthday so that they could do something special for her. We highly recommend Ivy if you are looking to

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Amy for the 5-star rating and review. I appreciate your giving me all the information about your parents-in-law before their arrival so that I could tailor the tour better according to their specific interests. Your parents-in-law are both very interesting and kind people, I also enjoyed very much spending my time with them. I always want to be a great ambassador of my city and they appreciated every moment of getting to know our city, history and culture. Thanks again Amy. All the best.

Tour: #351184, Ultimate Private Day Tour to the Blue Mountains for Lois Dornfeld and friends, Sydney, NSW, Australia    view tour
Date: Oct 5/18

Ivy Took us on a wonderful trip to the blue Mountains. Her husband did the driving so that Ivy could explain the history as well as present day facts about Sydney and the blue Mountains and the surrounding towns. Although the weather was not the best, we were still able to walk to the waterfall and see the three sisters, have a nice lunch and afternoon hot chocolate and scone. Ivy also called to get us a table at some of the best restaurants, we appreciate her hard work. We will recommend her to friends.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lois, Many thanks for your wonderful feedback! Thank you, Lee, Jane & Mark for coming to my tour and being so easygoing for whatever places I suggested to visit. You guys were very awesome and fun people to be with and we did have a great time together. Look forward to seeing you all again in the near future and look forward to guiding your friends and relatives if they have a chance to visit Sydney. All the best, Ivy

Date: Aug 2/18

What an extraordinary day... The Blue Mountains are stunning. Ivy knew all of the best spots for viewing the mountains. She provided history and cultural insights. Ivy made great dining and shopping recommendations. Ivy adjusted the tour to our interests and energy level throughout the day. I can't wait to come back to Sydney and have Ivy show us more of what the city has to offer its visitors.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so so much Anne for your great feedback! I am so glad that you and Olivia had a wonderful time, and that is exactly what our tour is all about and what we aim for. I’m looking forward to seeing you again and yes, there are many more places I can show you next time when you return. Enjoy the rest of your trip in Australia! All the best. Ivy

Ms. Ivy was incredible from the first moment we got in touch with her. We had planned an itinerray for our travellers and she helped us with a few suggestions to improve the tour. She kept in touch all the time and was very flexible and kind with us. Our travellers had a great time with her and they said their tour was perfect. We cannot wait to work with her once more. Hopefully soon! Thank you so much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura, thank you so much for your feedback and it was a very enjoyable walk with two of you. I really appreciated how you interacted during our walking which made the walking be more fun and memorable. I hope you have a chance to visit Australia again in the near future and I’m looking forward to guiding you again. All the best. Ivy

Likewise, both of you were very nice guests I had, especially the in depth knowledge you both already had about Australia and Sydney. I really really enjoyed my time with you guys. Enjoy the rest of your holiday in Sydney. Merry Xmas and happy New Year to you and your family. All the best, Ivy
