We selected Runaway Tours because their advertising said we could customize our tour to fit our needs so with some skepticism we booked the tour hoping to arrange it that way. We were a group of ten adults who wanted to be picked up at the cruise ship dock along with our luggage, spend the day seeing the central business district sights and at the end of the day we needed to be dropped off in two separate locations. Thru email conversations with the owners Mandy and Stephen at Runaway Tours we had all of our needs and concerns met and exceeded. The tour was great, seeing exactly what we wanted to see and basically dictating how long we would be at each venue. We toured the Sydney Opera House amazing, Mrs. Macquarie's Chair fabulous views, the Botanical Gardens beautiful plants and flowers, St Mary's Cathedral great architecture inside and out, Paddy's Market shopping and lunch, the Sydney Harbor Bridge amazing structure, and the Rocks great history lesson. Our tour guide Essey, thou not being born in Australia, has a deep love and appreciation of her adopted city of Sydney, was extremely well informed, humorous, light hearted and accommodated all of our needs and requests. This was truly a custom tour with our group of ten, a trailer in tow for our luggage, and we were able to make the best of the time we had to see the sights. We would highly recommend this tour company to anyone looking to self-customize their tour after our conversations with Essey we are positive that Runaway Tours would also give the same time and energies to their prepackaged tours. We are looking forward to returning to Sydney and touring again with Essey and Runaway Tours!
