This 3-hour private walking tour is a combination of our Downtown Sydney and the Rocks & Circular Quay itineraries. Our ‘Best of’ tours are typically the most popular itineraries we offer in each destination and regularly sell out.

We start our journey in Hyde Park where giant fig trees provide a wonderful canopy above our walkway. Making our way north, we’ll pass by many of the city’s most important sandstone buildings, including a hospital that was built with rum!

Continuing on, our journey will take you into the belly of Sydney, through its narrow lanes and alleys, where you’ll get the chance for the perfect photo for your next profile pic.

Your local guide will escort you through the narrow alleys and stairways of the Rocks, once a haven for thieves and gangs during early settlement. Your guide will explain the rich history of this neighborhood that was literally carved from sandstone.

As we make our way deeper into the Argyle Cut, we’ll stop by Sydney’s shortest street and hear how rats nearly managed to cripple the entire city during the bubonic plague. We move on towards the site of Sydney’s first hospital before stopping in at our favorite historic bakery to sample some tasty Australian treats.

This tour has it all – culture, history, food, and a plethora of juicy stories to keep you on the edge of your seat. Your private guide will show you the best downtown Sydney has to offer.
