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.

I only had a short time in Sydney but wanted to make the most of it so booked a half day tour with Just Sydney Tours. As it was beastly hot that day (even at 3 pm when we started), we changed up the itinerary which was supposed to be four hours of walking and instead started by driving (in the air conditioned vehicle!) around the neighborhoods of Paddington and Darlington (delightful!) to Bondi Beach and a beverage overlooking the beach at Icebergs. By that point it had cooled down some so we parked the car and did the walking piece - The iconic Sydney Opera House, Harbor Bridge, Botanical Gardens, CBD and a bit of Barangaroo. We even came across a wonderful Christmas market for a little late afternoon food sampling and handmade / artisan Australian gift browsing! Final activity was private water taxi across the harbor and back to my hotel in the Rocks, which I explored that evening on my own. Great tour!!!

Spending the day with Alanah and having her introduce us to her city was one of my highlights of a two-week trip to Australia.

Yes, I suppose there are less expensive tour buses to pick you up and drop you off at the main tourist sites. But Alanah's knowledge of (and history with) the city makes her tour a much different (and personal) experience for visitors. For instance, she used to work at the Sydney Opera House, and for Qantas before that. She has great stories to tell (and personal history to draw from) that you won't get on a cookie-cutter tour bus.

Not only is she a remarkable guide, but it is a pleasure to spend a day with her. Having her show us around Sydney -- a city for which she obviously has a great deal of affection -- was a real treat. She is a fantastic (de facto) ambassador for Sydney (and Australia in general).

If you're searching for a full-day, fully-customized tour of Sydney, I'd highly recommend using Just Sydney Tours.

I can understand why this experience is so highly rated. It truly was amazing to have a private tour of such an amazing city. It started with the Opera House (iconic) and then went throughout the entire city. I am certain we got to see areas that a normal tour would never even attempt to drive through: small neighborhoods, etc. We had an amazing lunch and ended the day down by the beach (with a boat ride home). The man who took us around was SUPER friendly and knowledgeable. He was also an excellent driver (important when taking a driving tour). Although I know this type of private tour is expensive, it is ideal if you have little time in Sydney and/or just want a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Alanah introduced 5 of us to Sydney in a wonderful, customized way. We were driven around downtown Sydney, along the coast, through charming neighborhoods, and to beautiful vistas for great photo opportunities.She suggested places to eat and visit during our ensuing 4 day stay. Although it was a bit pricey, her knowledge and helpfulness was much appreciated.

My wife and I wanted to thank Alanah for a great introduction to Sydney and their way of life. It was a wonderful tour tailored to visit areas that we were not planning to already see. The tour was top notch, the lunch outstanding with beautiful views of Sydney harbors, very professional and comfortable at the same time. We felt we were out with a friend rather than someone we had only just met.

The one thing I would say set them apart for most of the other tours is the personal interactions we had with Just Sydney well before we left. Alanah made several suggestions on itineraries and things we could do when we finally arrived as well as what plans we already had in Sydney so that she could customize our tour.

Just Sydney is a great way to start your visit to a wonderful city. Highly, highly recommended.

Thanks,

Ed & Nancy

Alanah and Alex at “Just Sydney Tours” provided an unforgettable morning for my husband, son and myself. My husband uses an electric scooter to get around, and they just loaded his scooter into the back of their comfortable van and took us to places that were easily accessible to him. They were flexible in designing a tour that fit our interests and needs, not taking us to places we had already visited, and showing us some of the more out-of-the-way places that only locals might know about. We learned many interesting facts about the history of the area. Morning tea at Vaucluse House was a highlight for me. We loved every minute of the tour, and I would highly recommend “Just Sydney Tours” to anyone wanting to get an overview of this fabulous city!

We had a marvelous two days exploring Sydney, from Bondi Beach to the south of the harbor, to Manly Beach to the north, and all the interesting points between. This Vietnam Veteran was very surprised and pleased that we got a special tour of the Veteran's Memorial! The tour of the Blue Mountains was top notch in all respects! Our hosts were quite knowledgeable and answered every question completely, and with ease. I was also pleased with the tour of the nature preserve, or zoo and the guided tour therein. All in all, it was a very memorable and excellent experience to be among such friendly and outgoing folks who managed our tour. If one wishes to see Sydney, this is the way to do it, no bout adoubt it!

My husband and I scheduled a half-day tour of Sydney with Alanah, then asked her to arrange for the "Wild Australia Experience" at Taronga Zoo (incidentally, a wonderful guided tour) on the next day followed by dinner at Aria and a Sydney Symphony Orchestra concert at the Opera House. Every element was handled perfectly: times, tickets, directions, insider tips about how to "navigate" the Sydney harbour ferry system, and on and on. The only thing that Alanah couldn't arrange was a sunny day for the tour--in fact, it rained--but the tour itself was exactly what we hoped for: a highly informative and individually tailored introduction to Sydney and its suburbs that left us eager to explore further on our own. After using Alanah's company, I can't imagine choosing any other tour service in Sydney.

Our day with Alanah from Just Sydney Tours was one of our best days from our holiday. Everything was perfect. Special was that she brought someone with her who spoke Dutch just like us. Our day was beautiful. My husband sits in a wheelchair and the care from Alanah for him was the best it could be. Alanah has humor, loves her city, is an professional, charming and has a lot of knowledge. She brought us to beautiful places in Sydney and always accesible for the wheelchair. She makes our day special and we think it couldn't be better. She let us see everything we wanted to see and all the time we wanted to have on each place we were. We had lunch at the Icebergs Club overlooking Bondi Beach. She let us see Sydneys neighborhoods and give us much information. Before our vacation we had many e-mails about our trip and always wrote Alanah very quickly and with good answers and ideas for our holiday. My husband and I think that she is the perfect one to let you see Sydney and when you have a wheelchair of someone with you with a wheelchair is Alanah the best you can get.
