Mark was a wonderful guide. He provided an in-depth walking tour with historical knowledge of Sydney at just the right level to allow some context as to how Sydney was developed while keeping me interested.
Mark is a true historian. No matter what the question Aborigines, British, Agricultural, Ships, Military, Procreation, Life Expectancy etc etc etc Mark is a Historical Einstein !!! Do not go to Sydney without spend time “ The Wizard of Historical Fact “.
Patricia was a great tour guide. She had so much information - I’m sure we could have spent several more hours learning about the development of Sydney from her - she seemed slightly disappointed to let us go. Afterward my parents were remarking that learning about the architecture of a city was such a great way to learn about the history. We would highly recommend Patricia to anyone.
