City Tours

Sydney CBD and Harbour Tours

Beneath Sydney's glitzy façade are experiences and tours that'll make your head spin. You can find out about aboriginal culture, learn about Sydney's maritime history, or discover the city's best coffee haunts. The only trouble with having so many tours on offer is you'll want to do them all!

Sydney's quite a compact city, and that's handy if you're exploring by foot. But while a map can help you get around, nothing beats a guide in the know. It's easy to go behind the scenes of the art world, for instance, with a tour of Sydney's commercial galleries or artist-run spaces and studios with a guided tour.

You'll also find a range of historical walking tours around The Rocks and other areas of Sydney which are great for revealing how the city evolved. There are also bush walking tours and hiking tours if you're keen to explore beyond the city.

If you'd rather explore the city on the back of a Harley Davidson, or from the deck of a sailboat, you'll find tours to suit. There are also a range of dinner cruises on Sydney Harbour, twilight sails and overnight harbour stays on a yacht if you're planning a romantic evening. There are also Aboriginal culture tours and city sightseeing days to choose from, plus tours that'll take you to the best spots to enjoy (and photograph) Sydney by sunset.
