Deciding where to go and what to skip in a city as golden, big and shiny as Sydney is a challenge for any mere mortal, but not for an insider. From cocktail bars to scrumptious eateries and historic neighborhoods to energetic markets the day’s sights are yours to command! Your host will have a few suggestions of their own, but the gist of this experience is to blend city highlights with local insights and come up with a Sydney cocktail that’s authentic and fun!
Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the
experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
