      About This Sydney Tour

      This is a city bursting with heritage, natural beauty, iconic sights, and buzzing cultural and dining scenes. Believe us, you'll need a Sydney-sider (a true local) by your side. Count on a friendly, in-the-know guide to zero in on the sights and insights that give Australia's largest city its energy and exuberant appeal.

      Traveling with a local, you'll discover why residents are passionate about their gorgeous harbor. Back in 1788 when ships sailed in to drop off British convicts, the captain declared he'd found the "finest harbor in the world." And Sydney knew what to do with this treasure. This former penal colony is now a glittering stage, where the stunning Opera House and mighty Harbour Bridge play starring roles. And, yes, your guide shows you the absolute best places to capture photos of these quintessential sights.

      While shiny skyscrapers crowd the skies, there are still plenty of laid-back spots to chill. Stroll a scenic coastal path with your Sydney-sider guide or dip your toes in the surf at sandy Bondi Beach. Discover the spirit of the city's diverse neighborhoods, its lively cultural scene, and the vibrant culinary repertoire – all sparked by a multicultural mingling that makes this the country's most cosmopolitan city.

      As a bonus, you also get a peek behind the scenes as your guide shares fun facts about sights and tales of famous – and infamous – Sydney-siders. You may have joined this tour expecting an overview. But you'll leave with a connection to the soul of Sydney. An understanding of what drives this dazzling city. And stories only a local can tell.

      When women ruled the underworld

      You'd expect a city settled by convicts to have a colorful past. And Sydney doesn't disappoint. From the 1920s to 1940s, two women feuded furiously to control organized crime. Tilly Devine ran infamous brothels in Kings Cross, while her rival Kate Leigh ran bootleg outfits and brothels in Surry Hills. Although trendy spots have replaced houses of ill repute, you can still raise a glass from the past at the Absinthe Salon in Surry Hills.
