Being a tour guide, you always wonder how others conduct a tour and how to present a city to tourists. Therefore, I signed up a Sydney tour. There are so many tours on Viator, we went through a lot and decided to pick Sydneyficant. We like the idea of traveling like a Sydneycider.
But the weather in Sydney changed the day we arrived, heavy showers on and off. I got emails from our tour guide before our tour. Harris was very nice. He informed us about the weather and also provided us other options. He just wanted us to have the best time in Sydney. Because our friends already had plans for us. We went on our Sydney tour on a cold rainy day.
Harris picked us up right at 8. He was very energetic and with a biiiiig smile. He was fun, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He is the EXPERT of Sydney. I learned so much from him. We felt like we traveled with an old friend. He showed us his secret spot for New Year Fireworks and also a fine kangaroo steak restaurant. So many too see in Sydney. A lot of laughter. What a fun day!
If you ever plan to visit Sydney, don't hesitate, find Harris, you will have a fabulous time.
Sydneyficant, simply the best!
BTW, Harris used his power to stop the rain. We had a beautiful sunny day that afternoon.
Harris confirmed the pick up location and time the day before the tour and was very punctual. With a big smile like an old friend he greeted me at the hotel and gave me a surprise. The other party postponed their tour so it was just Harris and me for the day.
This is a great way to learn about Sydney. Harris oriented me yo where we are going, pointed out buildings with significance to Sydney. We visited non-tourist locations, where local goes. I got to see iconic views from different vantage points. Since I love photography, I felt my photos are different than those you see on normal tour web sites because of the tour.
I get to experience a pie that a normal Sydney person would eat. Not the typical tourist quick lunch
Harris took me through different neighborhoods to see different types of people living in Sydney.
I walked the harbor bridge, walked the coastal road and the important thing is that Harris learns what I like and let me have time to do it. You may not be as lucky as me to be the only person on the tour but I have the feeling he will accommodate most requests.
What a joy to spend a day with him. It felt more like a trip with a friend.
Highly recommended and try the other tours with sydneyficant tours.
