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.

    4 of us booked a private tour with Dave while on our visit to Sydney for a wedding. We thought this tour would get a look at lots of sights and we were right. Dave picked us up at our hotel and drove us up to the Blue Mountains. Wd saw Three Sisters, took a gondola ride and a cable car ride on an old coal mine car. Very fun! We had lunch I. Katoomba at a cute deli and a coffee stop in Leura. We went to a wildlife park and ended the day taking a ferry ride back to Sydney Harbour. Dave was informative and also let us wander on our own at each tour sight. Highly recommend.

    Situated in the heart of Sydney, opposite the Australian Museum and Hyde Park. They have swim lanes for the “serious” swimmers and a huge play pool for everyone else. There is also a sun area which is normally open along with a wave machine but due to recent Covid outbreak you can’t but this will be back to normal soon fingers crossed. The water is a little cool but you do get used to it. Suitable for families of all ages with the leisure pool opening on a slope so perfect for those younger children. It is reasonably priced and they do have lessons there.

    I was in town for a conference and decided to book in for a personalized running tour of Sydney. Jamie met me in the lobby of my hotel and took me on a two-hour, 15k route that included a few of the things I wanted to see and a few he recommended.

    We ran through Hyde Park, the Domain, Wooloomaloo and Farm Cove, around the Opera House, Circular Quay, the Rocks, across the Harbour Bridge and Back, and then finished down through Darling Harbour.

    Jamie was an excellent and friendly guide....he was comfortable going whatever pace I wanted, stopped regularly to take some pictures at some really spectacular vantage points, and delivered me back to to my hotel.

    I have done running tours in quite a few cities around the world -- Running Tours Sydney would be at the top in terms of organization and quality of the experience.

    If you are a runner, and have never done one of these tours, it's such a great way to see such a variety of neighborhoods and locations at street level. Definitely recommended!
