    After meeting your guide at Circular Quay, your tour roughly follows a historic route that meanders through central Sydney.

    You’ll see the oldest remaining convict building and the first permanent Customs Building in Sydney, as well as the oldest remaining row houses in the city. Your guide tells you all about the city's past and present along the way.

    “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.” In reading this

    It was just okay. Lots of personal stories and comments and some historical. Felt we did not cover enough ground - skipped Baranargoo altogether! Anyways we made the best of it and carried on to the Barracks Museum and the Queen Victoria building.

    Hi Treehouse G Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I know how hard it is to stop and write your review. Very much appreciated. We aim to give you a personal experience, that includes real stories intertwined with historical facts. In just 2 hours, sometimes it becomes impossible to see everything. The tour is approximately 6klm. So so glad you went on and checked out the 1816 Hyde Park Barracks and the 1898 Queen Victori Building. Both great buildings. May your travels enlighten you at every turn. Thanks again Best regards JohnP Manager
