Thank you for your kind feedback about our Aboriginal walkabout Tour in The Rocks, the area where the first English refugees and convict asylum seekers settled without asking to do so. Our tour shows what they missed out on in our Dreamtime Cultural practices. Thank...More

I found the tour very informative and interesting. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. This tour is close to the city centre and involves lots of walking, especially up stairs. The tour is all outdoors. I found the tour very good value for money.

buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
