    My wife and I were the only people on this tour and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Our tour guide Michael took us through the various places of historical importance in Colonial Sydney looking at the various styles of architecture but also the people who lives impacted these early years. Michael's knowledge of The Rocks area made you appreciate what you were seeing and understand why people fought so hard to keep these old buildings standing to be enjoyed by future generations. Every city has a past and Sydney is no exception. The tour ended in the heart of The Rocks amongst all the restaurants, cafes and pubs at lunchtime to tempt you more to stay in The Rocks just that little bit longer. The tour left you wanting to see more and to come back again. Thank you Michael and Theresa.

    Wonderful tour. Perfect pace and full of interesting info to engage everyone of all ages. Relaxed and friendly with plenty of time to ask questions. Vickie was a wonderful, friendly host who demonstrated her deep knowledge at every step of the way. We learnt so much, despite having visited the rocks many time.

    This is a must do, even if you, like my husband & I, along with another couple, were born & bred in Sydney. We went to quaint little hidden places, we never knew were there. Michael, our tour guide, knows everything there is to know about the history of The Rocks & tells some amazing stories of life in the early years. Do yourself a favour & book this tour, next time you are in Sydney. You will not be disappointed!

    Fantastic tour! Our guide, Michael, was excellent. I have a history degree and have studied the history of early colonial Sydney, but I still learned a lot of new information on this tour. I was lucky to be one of only three people on my tour. Highly recommended - thanks Michael!

    The walking tour was great with michael. He covered so much detail and managed to cover all our bizarre questions. It was extremely engaging but also still managed to have a chat. Would recommend! We did the tour with friends ranging from 23-27 and we loved it.

    The tour was interesting and very engaging. Our tour guide Michael was very knowledgeable and clear to understand. He had a wealth of knowledge and was more than happy to have a yarn as well. We had less knowledgeable members of the group and more informed members and Michael did a great job of catering to everyones level. I would recommend this tour to all types of people. Thanks for a lovely day Michael.

    Our tour group had a very interesting and informative outing with Brian. As we are from an Historical Society and we really enjoyed his depth of historical knowledge about the Rocks - plus his sense of humour! We all commented afterwards on how much we learnt about the area, and we would certainly recommend the walking tour to others.

    A must-do if you are in Sydney! Michael was fantastic, it was a very interesting experience, and I could absorb so much of history, cultural heritage, hidden alleyways, architecture gems. During the tour, Michael showed me a few pictures of spots we were walking so I definitely could imagine how streets and buildings looked like back to old times. I would highly recommend to anyone! Book it straight away!

    We found a genuinely knowledgeable and interested/interesting guide in Michael. Family with young kids and the 9 year old really enjoyed it. Sydney history is fascinating! I would book now while Sydney is quiet- having a small group is a great bonus.

    Today our small group entered into a patchy day of rain. Michael our tour guide was amazing and had many wonderful history talks on our journey today. Michael is so good at keeping the group together, and we engaged with the history and stories of the past. Well done Michael.. Very well organised and i would definitely recommend this tour, to many people looking for a easy morning walk with a team of the passionate tour guides. Passionate and interesting history stores for all ages of The Rocks history. 👏🌟👍
