Fantastic! Mark knows Sydney history inside and out, and we heard remarkable stories while we saw the sights of the Rocks. In addition to the historical tour he pointed out a couple of pubs we could visit later. Our tour was about 3 hours and...More

There are plenty of tours of The Rocks that are less costly than this. However most are shorter in duration and say they are wheelchair accessible. Our tour went to a lot of places that a wheelchair could not go and was 3 hours. We...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
