Patricia was the best guide ever she met us promptly at the location designated. She what's so knowledgeable covered everything I was hoping for and so much more. I believe we have a better understanding of Sydney then most tourist ever get. It was a pleasure spending the afternoon with Patricia we've learnt so much that we will take with us and appreciate everything she did and shared with us, would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
Mark's tour of The Rocks district of Sydney offered a wealth of insight. It was delivered with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the area, and with great personal warmth. A wonderful experience.
Mark was an extremely knowledgeable and personable tour guide. I got a real feel for the history of The Rocks and just wanted to hear more about the early colonization of Sydney and its settlers. It was a wonderful experience. There is one thing that should be mentioned in the description of the tour, however. Sydney is a very hilly city and the area known as “The Rocks” is not only hilly but has many, many steps. This tour would be difficult for individuals who are not in fairly good shape or those with disabilities.
