Scott was great. Very knowledgeable of Sydney and we went to places you will not find in large bus tours. He was accommodating to our request and made sure we were all (three couples with different interest) happy with the tour. He took great pictures that he sent to us and

Dear Chloe, Thank you for such a fabulous review - I feel quite humbled by it. It really was my pleasure to meet you both and I thoroughly enjoyed your company too! We really did see so much of Sydney plus all of those terrific 'out of the way' spots as well as the main must see attractions - all with perfect Sydney summer weather and blue skies. It was a privilege to share this beautiful city with you both and creating wonderful memories of your time here in Australia (it did feel like we had all known each other for years by the end of the tour!) Thanks again Chloe and Kim for such a wonderful day. I wish you all the best for the rest of your fabulous holiday. Warm regards, Julia Sydney Private Day Tours

Dear Linda and Bill, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and show you so much of this lovely city and beaches regions. We are so glad you enjoyed your tour and enjoyed your seaside lunch at Bondi Beach. We would like to clarify that you did in fact, make several stops downtown in Sydney however given the size of the City, you may not have been wholly aware that these stops were in the 'Downtown' region - many visitors to Sydney are surprised at how big the city is and how spread out it is - especially when also covering both the Northern and Eastern Beaches, which as you know, are just too good to miss! On your tour, we stopped at all of locations listed on the itinerary including the Sydney main attractions plus many, many more with plenty of time to wander around at your leisure to take photo's and soak up the views! We are very sorry to hear that you would have liked to also have had a tour inside the Opera House as well - although given your 8 hour tour went for over 9 hours this could have been a challenge 😊 - We would have been more than happy to accommodate any other special requests and it is always our pleasure to do so! It does state in our itineraries that you don't go into the Opera House (the Sydney Opera House operate their own tours inside the building and without exception, no other tour operators in Sydney are permitted to operate tours inside the actual building) Your guide certainly would have been more than happy to assist you with booking an Opera House Tour with the Sydney Opera House Trust - we actually highly recommend these tours for clients who have a little more time in Sydney because they do take around 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We wish you all the very best for your travels and hope that you both had a wonderful time on your amazing cruise around Australia Kind Regards Julia & Scott

Dear Mary Ann and Lamar, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your tour and your wonderful experience - we really appreciate it! We are so glad that you enjoyed your Customised Sydney Private Tour and that despite the challenges with accessing the Blue Mountains we were still able to put together a fabulous custom tour for you both. It was a pleasure to meet you and show you many of the uniquely 'Sydney' areas as well as the main sights plus include a visit to the Featherdale Wildlife Park. The Kangaroo's are really adorable and it's great that you got to experience the park and the animals! We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your fabulous cruise! Kind Regards Julia & Scott Sydney Private Day Tours
