About
Tours for People Who Don't Like Tours. Bailey's Sydney day tours stray out of the tourist environment and mindset, seeing Sydney and surrounds the way you want to, at the pace you desire, and with the people of your choosing. Every tour is customised to your needs and expectations; every tour is private (just yourself and the group with whom you're travelling). Every tour is responsive to your input and every photo in the galleries was taken by me at a location that can be included in a Bailey's Sydney tour

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I had a great day with Peter Bailey. He drove us all over Sydney showing us fabulous views, engaging in very informative conversations and showing us where to walk from Bondi Beach to Tamarama Beach. He was also great in that we needed to make a couple of stops for errands. We also stopped for a very nice lunch.

Our family had a perfect day with Peter for our short stay in Sydney. Really couldn’t have asked for anything more for our tour of the beautiful city. Peter was great and easy to get along with, felt like he was just another member of our family. Perfect amount of sight seeing with walks built into the day!

Also gave us a great recommendations for what to do the following day! Thanks again!

Thanks you, Noah, to you and your family. I hope the kids enjoyed cooling off in the ocean at Manly after such a hot day

We had a great day touring the Blue Mountains with Peter
He arranged our visit so that we avoided all the queues,made sure we were adequately fed and watered and managed the maximum amount of time out in the pristine wilderness enjoying the superlative scenery

Fabulous food, and it’s all made so easy. This is a unique tour, showcasing the best of a carefully curated selection of cuisines, available all over Sydney. Peter is such a knowledgeable host, there is nothing formulaic, none of that repetitious “And we’re walking” or reading from a script. Not the herding or waiting that you expect in big groups - which means it packs more locations in, yet it feels relaxed and unhurried. And along the way, we saw some scenic parts that aren’t in the usual tours - driving over Madonna’s Bra (the ANZAC Bridge), the Parramatta ferry trip (our choice).
So many memorable aromas and flavours. Mmmm…
Oh, and bring a container to save some snacks for later.

Well worth fasting for!

I reckon Sydney Doesn't Only Speak English is a great tour, and I'm so pleased you guys enjoyed it too. No need for breakfast or dinner, a lovely ferry ride back to the city AND Madonna's Bra! What more could you ask for?

A fabulously absorbing tour. Peter knows the most interesting parts of Sydney like no one else, and I’ve lived here all my life.

One of the best tours I've been on. The tour was very personal and adapted to our needs and interests. Peter Bailey was very knowledgeable and provided interesting and humourous commentary while still allowing us to make our own discoveries. Highly recommend.

Our family wanted to tour the Blue Mountains while we were in Sydney, but were daunted by the logistics for our group of five that included two young kids (4 and 7-years-old) and 3 adults (including one retiree with a disability that limits mobility).

We thought the group tours seemed either too slapdash (stopping for mere minutes before dashing off) or too miniscule (only a couple of stops before heading home). The train seemed simple enough, except for figuring out the logistics of getting around the area once we arrived (and needing to cut out a stop to Featherdale that my kids really wanted). We considered just renting a car, but driving on the left side of the road was intimidating, and it was hard to really assess what we wanted to do once we arrived, and what would be too much for our group to handle.

Ultimately, we arranged for a private tour, and it ended up being an absolute highlight of our trip. Peter was really communicative about logistics leading up to the tour, and an excellent conversationalist and guide during the tour. He also gave us recommendations based on things we wanted to do for the remainder of our time back in Sydney.

He planned a fantastic itinerary that allowed us to see the beauty of the Blue Mountains from several lookouts, visit Scenicworld, and Featherdale. When the kids got hungry he recommended a delicious little pie shop in the mountains, and everyone enjoyed their offerings. We were never rushed, and the plan was seamlessly adjusted as we went based on our wants and needs.

It was such a delight to see this beautiful natural wonder with an experienced guide who knew how to avoid crowds, and manage a group with a lot of different wants and needs. As a bonus, Peter was easy to talk to, well-traveled, well-informed, funny, and kind to our entire party.

I know we were on the fence about whether or not to go to the Blue Mountains, and whether we really needed a private guide. I can tell you wholeheartedly that you should go, and that you will definitely be glad you hired Peter to take you. I cannot overstate the fact that our entire group had a GREAT day - no small feat!

Highly, highly recommend his tour services!

This tourguide is highly recommend, Peter was excellent. He was friendly and knowledgeable and gave advice for us to get best out of tour and where to go to see things and take photos. We saw Sydney and The Blue Mountains both in a day tour. Long days but well worth doing it and making memories.
