2.5 hours easy walking tour
If you thought that Sydney's history is short and boring, think again. It is interesting and fascinating. And we are going to share it with you.
Our "Colonial walk in modern Sydney" tour covers both Sydney and The Rocks. It contains carefully selected information to give it solid historic content, but keep it interesting, fun and entertaining.
Walk with local guides who are experts in history, love their city and enjoy sharing their favourite places with you. Join our tour and you will see our iconic world-famous sights as well as hidden gems of Sydney that you would never find on your own.
Sydney walks will give you a rare insight into our fascinating past as a British colony. We will explore The Rocks - the first convict settlement in Australia. You will learn about the history of this notorious area, wander cobblestone lanes listening to amusing stories of survival, convicts, gangs and pubs.
We will finish our tour enjoying breathtaking views of our Sydney Harbour with two icons: the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
In addition, you will be introduced to Sydney as a modern vibrant cosmopolitan city with lots of photo opportunities, tips on places to visit and things to do in Sydney beyond the tour.
