Our Tour

Join us for a casual meet-up starting at Circular Quay. From there, we’ll take a short wander around the area of the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Photographic viewing platform and Sydney’s Rocks, famous among locals for its mix of towering skyscrapers and old architecture. Plenty of opportunities to take and share photos.
Finally, we’ll visit a local pub that’s popular for its large craft beer selection, Australian ciders and local wines (they also serve coffee and non-alcoholic beverages) and rooftop views over Sydney Harbour. We’ll settle in for a drink if you like and you’ll be free to chat with new friends, make some plans together for later on and ask any questions you like from our knowledgeable Sydney expert.
