A unique telling of the story of Sydney


  • Stories behind the Icons
  • Discover vantage points most visitors never find and get that perfect shot.
  • Drink in the view over a coffee at a harbourside café
  • Sample Sydney lifestyle


Get the backstory on Sydney’s iconic cityscape and the real life dramas that shaped it. Delve into the past as we introduce you to some of the larger than life characters that made the city of Sydney what it is today. Theirs are tales of vision and self interest, of conflict and collaboration, of brilliance and incompetence. Along the way we’ll take in scenic highlights like the Royal Botanic Garden, magnificent Sydney Opera House, bustling Circular Quay, the iconic Harbour Bridge, and the colonial sandstone architecture of the The Rocks. A stop at a café with unrivalled harbour views is all part of this immersive experience in the story of Sydney. Sip on tea infused with native ingredients, accompanied by damper - a simple bread traditionally cooked in the campfire. Or take a deep dive into our culinary heritage by grazing on local produce that showcases indigenous ingredients in use for tens of thousands of years (optional upgrade). This tour is the ideal way for visitors to get an orientation of Sydney and at the same time experience a slice of Australia’s ancient and contemporary culture.
