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!

Absolutely loved the 3 suburbs bike tour (Chippendale, Redfern & Ultimo). Great tour when you're tired of all the usual 'touristy' sites. Loved the University of Technology Sydney focus and all of the hidden things you'd never find yourself. Eroghan was an extremely knowledgable guide...More

The architect who led us on this excellent tour was very informative and his way of explaining the reasons why and significance of the many interesting landmarks, buildings and the history was clear concise and entertaining. It was also thought provoking and for me. deeply...More

A wonderful way to spend half a day walking and discovering fascinating facts on big and small buildings. Eoghan, our guide, chose specific buildings that illustrated his narrative, developing a story that had us eager for 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
