Complete Sydney Walking Tour Overview
When visiting a city is big and vibrant as Sydney, there are choices aplenty of walking tours to participate in.
We focus on giving you the “Complete” experience — starting with the history (Aboriginal Australia through to today) then moving onto other important bits like our favourite cafes, pubs, museums and walks to do around.
When we write our Complete Tour, we like to think “For someone who has just 3 hours in the city, what are the spots they absolutely HAVE to see, and what MUST they know?”
By the end of the tour you’ll be not only entertained, but filled with lots of recommendations about what to do with the rest of your time in Sydney and beyond.
