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

A very knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend your tour based on our experience. The guide did very well given it was 36 degrees the day we did the tour.

The Rocks walking tour is a must do if you come to Sydney. More so if you are a history buff. There were lots of information provided by our excellent tour guide Vickie. So that we have an idea how The Rocks looked like before, our tour guide carried old photos of the settlement and showed them to each and every one of us as we stop at a particular destination. We had enough time to ask questions and also to take photos. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and be ready to climb up and down the Argyle Stairs.
