We are architects and we want to share our city with you. We organise intimate walking and bicycle tours that are open to the general public. We also arrange private / customised architectural tours and itineraries on request. Taking the form of a series of urban provocations, our conversations are straightforward and jargon-free exercises in story telling. Aimed at the expert-enthusiast, we want you to understand the 'why' of the city whilst exploring the most provocative and daring projects Sydney houses; works of architecture, public art and landscape that inspire and delight but also projects that reveal something of Sydney's grimy pulse. We are interested in ideas and in the drivers of city; the vibrant network of invisible forces - political, cultural, economic and environmental that give the city form. Get stung by architecture. Sydney will never look the same again. We promise!

Okay, I am interested in architecture, but this is a great way to spend an hour and a half. I live in Sydney and had walked passed these buildings may times, but had never learned the stories behind them or examined the lobbies. Well worth...More

With a tip of the hat to Gothic design only the essentials are required. Eoghan's presentation of the history of the Opera House is passionate, articulate, enlightening and profound. A must visit for the intellectual visitor.

Best tour you can do if you are interested in real information. We took the "Utzon" tour which was about the story of the Opera House. What an amazing story! Our guide was brilliant, knowledgable and so authentic. Best thing we did in Sydney so...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
