Sydney Half Day Luxury Private Tour - Morning or Afternoon Avail
, Feb 2020
Scott was excellent. He was on time, exactly where he said he would be. We talked the whole time. He took us to all of the important sites and gave us a lot of history. We will definitely use them again when we come back. Highly recommended.
Wonderful tour with Julia. I would highly recommend her tour and services. She is a native of the area and it shows. She knows exactly what visitors need to see and maximizes your time. Very detailed and thorough information with rich historical insight. A personal tour was just what we needed after a long flight. It was stress-free since she was waiting for us at our hotel and also brought us back there. We simply just got to soak in all of the local flavor and culture. Definitely book here! You will be delighted with the experience.
WOW!!! What an incredible tour this was!!!! Scott picked us up from the cruise terminal and showed us all around Sydney. He even took pictures of our family at several iconic sites and sent them to me once we got home! Scott and his tour are FIRST CLASS....all the way!!! He was also happy to let us drop our bags off at the hotel, check in, then drove us to our show at the Opera House at the end of our tour, which was so helpful!!! Thanks again Scott!! Book this tour...you'll be SO glad you did!!!!

David is fantastic, our excursion was amazing! We went to the spots where tour buses can’t get to so we could enjoy the view all for ourselves! What a great memory. We also saw a burnt area and could capture how the life already started on the burnt trees after just a couple of weeks. It’s amazing. The lunch cafe David suggested was also delicious and had great service. If you haven’t seen the Blue Mountains yet, book David’s tour you won’t regret it!

Blue Mountains Private Tour | Fully Inclusive of Scenic World and Featherdale
Blue Mountain Private Tour
, Dec 2019
My wife and I booked the Blue Mountains Luxury Private Tour with Scott. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with Scott. Extremely knowledgeable of the region and easily shares his experiences. Everything is inclusive in the price of the tour, including all entry tickets to the various attractions, plus lunch. And best of all is you won't have to wait behind the bus tours to gain entry, Scott will whisk you right to the front. If you want to learn more in a single day versus riding in the bus and listening to the tour guide talk to 40 people, book with Scott. It's like spending the day with family. His vehicle was very comfortable and sight-lines were excellent. The Australian bush fires were active in the mountains during our tour, but we still enjoyed the limited views. The trip to Featherdale was fantastic, we got to play with and feed the Kangaroos and pet a Koala. We finished with a city tour. Highly recommend this tour.
Julia and Scott went above and beyond in providing us with an excellent tour of the Blue Mountains. We accidentally booked the wrong date and they moved their entire schedules around to accommodate us on the same day. Julia escorted us and we were able to play with wild cockatoos, do all the tours, had a great local lunch and finished the day with a tour of the absolutely charming Featherdale sanctuary. Throughout the tour, Julia showed us her Australia full of trivia and history. We left with memories of the special day all because they turned a potential disaster into a success. We would use them again for any of their tours around Australia.

In 30 years of travelling, have never experienced a guide as superb as Scott. We visited everything worth seeing and some. He has supeior communicative skills and involves each participant. His knowledge of Sydney was stupendous.
This private tour around the Sydney iconic stops, the beaches, the neighborhoods, and the coastal line was absolutely amazing! Scott (owner/guide) made it all about us and our interests. He told the history of Sydney and had fascinating stories. Highly recommend this tour, it is the best of Sydney and more. After this tour you will feel like you’ve experienced it all!

I am pleased to represent the people who took this tour. Our guide was interesting, had much information to share and made the tour a great success with his anecdotes. We feel that he is an excellent tour guide. We stopped at many sites that we had heard of but would not have been able to find them in a day with such interesting commentary. We were a party of 4 adults and enjoyed having our guide to ourselves. His VW van was comfortable and had free wifi! We highly recommend this tour and our excellent tour guide.

Peter has established a single person tour company, Sydney Nature Tours. He is retired from his job in the environmental/conservation sector. We took a 3/4 day tour of Ku-ring-gai national park north of Sydney. Peter was very amiable and easy going. We had told him in advance of our interest in aboriginal rock art and he did some extra research to tailor the tour to those desires. But Peter's main expertise is in the flora and fauna of the park. He was a font of knowledge about the trees and flowers. His specialty is the stingless native bees. We once spent several minutes staring at a spectacular cluster of white flowers while he pointed out the various varieties of pollinators swarming about. We saw a huge lace monitor, brush turkeys, kookaburras, kangaroos, and countless species of trees, bushes and flowers. If you like nature, this is a great tour.

Darryll was our tour guide for this unique experience. She too us to the Sydney Jewish Museum and both before and after, filled us in on the history of Australia and how the Jewish community got started and has thrived to this very day. She also took us to Bondi Beach and surrounding neighborhoods to one of the beautiful synagogues and toured us around. Finally, she took us to Our Big Kitchen after telling us the history of this amazing inter-generational, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic organization. We now feel we have a greater understanding of how our own culture thrives in Australia! Darryll was amazing!
