    Get real! Skip the superficial and dive deep on this Sydney tour that reveals the bizarre backstories and incredible histories of the city's icons. Behind the froth and bubble of sexy Sydney lies the stories of the winners who made it... and losers who didn't.

  • Experience Sydney from a local perspective (which, let's face it, is the best perspective imaginable!). Explore all the city icons, like The Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House, but explore them in a way most tourists don’t. We’ll take the least-walked path on this Sydney walking tour, and meander through this fascinating city’s tumultuous history and into the modern day.

    This historic Sydney tour makes its way along "The Tank Stream", the blue line that runs through the city (you'll find out what this line means on the tour!). We'll go through Hyde Park, retracing the steps that saw a small stream become the life source for a new country. We’ll hit up the major sights, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Angel Place, Parliament House, the Mint, and the Barracks, but in a way you wouldn’t experience on your own.

    This Sydney tour is a warts and all account of the birth of modern Australia and the legacies left from decisions made and the people who made them: those who won, those who lost, and everyone in between. Factual, funny, irreverent, and anecdotal – this Sydney walking tour is a great local experience packed full of Sydney history!
