Our hotel was located about 1 minute from where you have to pick this tour up. It was a great couple of hours to show us all around the Rocks.

This was a great tour of The Rocks... our guide Anne was fantastic. Tour lasts just under 2 hours and is at a leisurely pace, so it is good for all ages. Never would have seen all the hidden alleys and streets without this tour, and we really got historic context to the whole area.

We were only in Sydney for a day so decided to do a walking tour of The Rocks. Well worth every minute. Our guide was very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. We learnt so much about the history and ongoing plans.An extremely interesting few hours. Thanks

The guide wa really knowledgeable and friendly and we went places we would have struggled to find on our own, only booked it an hour before the start but the guide had my details and it was really easy.

Excellent tour. Margaret was very informative even if she seemed somewhat bewitched and partial to the only other German couple on the walking tour. Tour itself involved all points of interest within the Rocks area and a very interesting history lesson. Do it on the 1st day to get your bearings.

I enjoyed this guided walking tour of the Rocks area of Sydney very much. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and the topography of this oldest part of Sydney as well as the characters that inhabited this area at various periods in the history of the settlement that became Sydney. I had a glimpse into the daily lives of the various peoples who inhabited the area: the convicts, the military men and the free settlers all contributed in some way to the settlement. It was also explained to us how, in later years, the area became run down and, due to the publicity campaign waged by a prominent man, the Rocks area of Sydney was saved for posterity to become the tourist attraction that it is today. The guided walk was well worth the 90 minutes time space during the morning of the day that I was in Sydney. I would really recommend this walking tour to any one planning to visit Sydney.

Brian was our guide and had 40 years experience so he was a wealth of knowledge. The tour was very interesting and educational. Besides his knowledge, Brian was also very funny and made the tour very enjoyable. I would highly recommend The Rocks walking tour to anyone visiting Sydney.

The tour guide must have been a historian. She was incredible. It was a little hard to hear her sometimes, but she had such great stories of Sydney and it's history.

This was absolutely the best. Our guide, VIckie, was wonderful and very knowledgable. She went above and beyond what we expected. We loved the Rocks so much that we went back the next day and visited some local pubs. Would recommend this to others! Jan
