Outstanding! We spent 3 fabulous days touring beautiful Sydney with Helen. We left the itinerary up to her and were constantly happy with her choices. We toured places that only locals would go as well as the points of interest. Helen is wonderful to be with. She is always in tune with our wishes, kind, upbeat and lots of fun to be with. We had a sensational time with her... only wish we had more. We felt she gave us a perfect overview and understanding of her wonderful city. Loved it... and her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, Thank you for your glowing review, it takes 2 to tango :) You made my job very easy, being so interested and engaged. Thank you for your energy and passion to explore our wonderful city. I hope you can visit again one day. Sincerely, Helen

Helen is great - the tour gave a really good overview Sydney. Helen is friendly and warm as well as providing a lot of information without it seeming like a classroom. She covered all the main areas of Sydney and also showed us four types of transport. Knowledgeable about history, architecture, politics, different parts of Sydney, and restaurants etc. We had a great time with her! The gelato at the end capped off a fun afternoon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey there Mark, Thank you for your feedback. It was great hanging out with you all. Like mates from way back :) Hopefully we will see you in Sydney again soon. Helen

The perfect tour for your first trip to Sydney! We walked our legs off, but got a fantastic foundation on how to navigate this great city using public transportation to get around. Helen gave us just the right balance of historical information to place what we were seeing in context. Her knowledge of the city allowed her to adjust "on the fly" as necessary and we had a great afternoon together. Highly recommend this guide and this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nancy, Thank you so much for your review. It makes my job easier when with great people :) Thank you also for the referral! I cant see any booking for Tim and Gale? Could it be under a different name? Did they book through this booking platform? I look forward to your reply. Kind regards, Helen

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Charles, Thank you for your review. You really did hit the ground running, we covered a lot of ground. I think we did 11,000 steps in the 4 hours. I hope you enjoyed that cold beer we talked about. I wish you happy and safe travels. Kind regards, Helen

Helen was a very qualified and knowledgeable Tour Guide while we were in Sydney. Her knowledge of the area and flexibility in what we wanted to see was second to none. She went out of her way to accommodate any of our request and came up with spontaneous plans as we discussed our intended itinerary. I would highly recommend Helen for anyone needing competent tour guide services while in Sydney.
