    Our guide (Jelle - hopefully spelled it right) was great. He showed and explained everything to us. So we were in places that we would never have seen on our own. We had a lot of fun together. He answered all of our questions. It was a super nice afternoon.

    We were lucky to have a private tour due to cancellations because of the fires. We saw so much of Sydney - suburbs, downtown, the harbours, beaches, buildings, parks, with lots of history along the way. Jelle sure knows a lot of interesting places! It was perfectly paced for us, so we could choose the photo ops, short walks, and vantage points. Crazy traffic in the city made us very glad we didn't try to drive ourselves. Thanks, Jelle! We loved your city tour!

    Jelle, a Belgian who spoke German very well, showed us the most beautiful corners of Sydney on a very individual tour. Jelle had no hesitation in answering every question. He stopped at interesting places to give us time for photos and our own impressions. A tour that you would never experience with a big bus, individual, informative, eventful and humorous .. we would book this tour again and again .. a perfect start with a perfect guide to discover Sydney on your own afterwards ...
