Jason picked us up from the hotel and took us all over town. He took us to Bondi Beach, the Sydney Opera House, and other main attractions around Sydney. He was knowledgeable, professional, and humorous. We totally enjoyed this tour and felt like we understood the area better when the tour was over. When we were done he returned us to our hotel. It was a great way to see Sydney in 4 hours.

Our group of four booked this tour. Essie was our guide and drove us all around Sydney telling us stories and showing us the sights. I enjoy this type of tour so much more than a bus tour. You can ask to see specific areas and have great interaction with the guide. Thanks Essie for a great tour.

When you only have a half day to explore in Sydney this is definately the way to do it. The driver/guide was very knowledge and catered to what I wanted to see and do. He picked me up from the hotel 30 minutes early so even more time to tour and drived me at the airport in time to catch my flight home. Would definately book this again.

I only had a half day to see the Sydney highlights before I flew back to the States. Jim was an excellent guide and driver and treated me as a visiting friend. He showed me the Sydney highlights as if he was showing a visiting family member the city highlights and the famous Bondi beach and Sydney opera house. What a great day and he even dropped me off at the airport for the flight back. I would definitely do this all over again!

It was unfortunate that Sydney rained with strong wind when we arrived. We tried our best to enjoy the city. Unfortunately the defrost system did not work. So, the who bus was all fogged up. The lady driver/guide, Jen, tried without success. She called back the office many times and no one seemed to know how to solve the problem. But she still tried to show the city, and it was very dangerous because she could not see the road very well. I sat in front and kept wiping her side of the window for 2 hrs.
After that she called the offi e again, this time she find the solution. Overall it was very bad experience.
I am not blaming the weather, but the operator should have checked the condition of the mini van ahead
