Your Tour

So, you have visited Sydney before and seen this, done this and checked all the must ‘sees’ from your travel plans.

But have you actually got to know the Sydney that locals encounter on a daily basis? This is your opportunity!

Ask any local and they’ll tell you – one of the best things to do in Sydney is to get up close and personal with local favourite eating places. Experience the rich history, vibrant cultures and iconic uniqueness of Chinatown, Sydney Fish Markets and the TramSheds.

Learn about the history, culture, architecture and entertainment offerings that make Sydney so unique.

On this 4 hour tour, jump on the light rail and eat your way through the streets. Hop on and off the light rail, sampling delicacies from Sydney’s premier appetising shops, ethnic eateries and ‘mum and pop’ restaurants. Join us as we explore the once immigrant and working class neighbourhoods rich in ethnic diversity and culture. Learn about the history of Australia through its food.

Your local guide will elaborate on any element of the neighbourhood you find particularly interesting on this ‘Bite The Tram’ tour in Sydney – we all love this area!

Take advantage of Sydney’s newest public transport system as you visit a distinctive part of Sydney’s past as well as the present. With a reputation for local and international delicacies, unique vendors, and speciality shops, there really is nowhere else like this in Sydney. Distinctively different, yet undeniably and inherently similar, these neighbourhoods sit right within easy reach of the Sydney Light Rail Network. The tour offers a wonderful juxtaposition and interesting experiences one after another – perfect for exploring this unique part of Sydney.
In Paddy’s Market, you’ll hear how the neighbourhood has evolved from a working-class fruit and vegetable market into a wonderful bohemian mix. Several waves of immigrant settlers over the past 125 years have splashed colours, sounds and flavours from the four corners of the earth throughout Paddy’s Market.  There is not a McDonald’s or Starbucks to be seen. Large multinational corporations are decidedly unwelcome and unlikely to migrate their way in anytime soon.

Discover delicious food in one of the oldest Chinatowns in the world. Along the way, you’re likely to get restaurant recommendations, which come in handy after your Sydney ‘Bite the Tram’ tour – trust us, there are a lot of places to eat around here.

Fish Markets

Our next stop is the largest fish market in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest seafood market in terms of variety in the world. There’s always something happening and tales to tell. Your guide will enlighten you with some favourite local fish stories of the one that got away and intriguing fishing history.

During our tour, you will enjoy a variety of food specialities that has secured Sydney’s reputation as being one of the greatest culinary and cultural centres of the world. Discover the secrets to having the ultimate food and cultural experience off the beaten path!
