Full description
Spend the day with your host on who can’t wait to share with you their favorite places to hang out, show you where to get your hands on the best food, and take you through the city with an inspiring view on this walking experience. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Weave your way through a pocket of the city, discovering its diversity and the communities who are lucky to call Sydney home. This city is more than a place, it's a feeling, and that’s exactly what you’ll experience on your day with your host. See some historic landmarks and districts like The Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge or laze your afternoon away soaking up the sun at Bondi Beach or exploring the Darling Harbour. Get cultured at a museum or gallery and maybe you will still have some time to stop by a vibrant local market, hidden garden, or temple as you explore one of Sydney's eclectic neighborhoods. When hunger pangs strike, stop for lunch at one of the local eateries handpicked by your host for a truly authentic taste of Sydney's cuisine.

We had a carefree, personalized tour with John C John is a detailed oriented guide, who put a lot of effort into ensuring an unforgettable wonderful day in Sydney, AU. I had checked off a few boxes of what was important to me and John fulfilled my list to a T! He obviously researched where to take is prior to is disembarking our cruise ship. He has an easy going, fun personality He also took care in making sure we made it on time to our international flight. He went beyond expectations by riding with us to the airport and helping our wheelchair bound friend (who was not on the tour ) with special accommodations on the train. He has a wicked and bubbly sense of humor which we all enjoyed. The sites we strolled /bussed to were genuinely picked just for us based on our initial guide contact form. He followed up with clear meet up instructions and met us on time. We are so grateful to him and hope to book him again If ever back in sydney. Thank you !

Excellent choice

Is a good choice being with someone that’s local and know the area. The spots, things to do and so in function of what you want to do. Gave you a sense of security and freedom, they are friendly and looking to fulfill your expectations. It was my first time at Sydney my first language is not English and the local was very comprehensive. We did several spots in the area that it could take a little bit longer if I would do by myself.

John Campo was a very good guide. We spent 6 hours together going around Sydney. He is very knowledgeable and places, dates history. I would highly recommend him.
