Amazing Experience!! I was really surprised by all the historical information that I learned on this tour. I enjoyed seeing and learning about the unique locations "off the beaten track" that you normally wouldn't encounter on your own or on other tours. Joel was a great guide and I especially appreciated that he did the tour when it was just myself which added an extra special feeling to the tour as it was one-on-one and it was easier to stay at the same pace. An overall amazing experience! If you plan to go on the tour make sure to pack comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking and you access uneven roads and foot paths. I would definitely recommend taking this tour as there was so much to see and learn about what the original City was like many decades ago. Thank you for the wonderful tour!!

Joel is an excellent host. He took me to see many secrets places and I could feel his passion. Besides, he recommends me a very good seafood restaurant when I asked him, my friends and I had a wonderful time there. It’s lucky to have Joel’s trip.

Great experience! Joel is lively and keeps the tour interesting. I loved the ending where we had a drink at the opera house and Joel performed some of his mind blowing magic tricks! I had a great time and would do it again.

Good experience. Joel shows you around some of the most famous landmarks in Sydney, giving you an insight into the history of them. Worth doing if you're new to Sydney. Thanks Joel!

Joel is a wealth of information and stories. I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. He introduced me to one of Australia’s most famous group, Human Nature: But I’ll leave that story for him to share with you.

Highly Recommended. Joel came even if he was only doing it for me which made the tour very special. He brought me both to the must see and the special ones that only tour guides would know. Good value for money. More than what I’ve expected.
