Let someone else guide you around the city on a Sydney walking tour. There are a number of free or very affordably priced tour groups operating in the city that promise a relaxed way to learn the stories and secrets from Sydney’s most famous and infamous districts.
Sydney has a reputation with foodies and restaurant lovers around the world. Some of our favourite Sydney tours include a guided Sydney pub tour to the Rocks’ best heritage pubs (www.sydneypubtours.com), Taste Tours that include local guides taking you to their favourite culinary spots (www.tastetours.com.au) and gourmet tours specialising in tasting sessions at the most delicious destinations.
If you want to get the best possible overview of the city then there is no better way than a Sydney helicopter tour (www.sydneyhelitours.com.au). Helicopter tour options include twilight tours, harbour tours, city tours and beach tours for different perspectives on this famous city.
From high-adrenaline jet boating to an authentic wooden tall ship, a Sydney boat tour is a stunning alternative way to see Sydney’s famous bridge, Opera House and Harbour highlights. There are plenty of traditional boat cruise options to choose from, so you can sit back relax and see Sydney from the water.
Whether you choose electric (for those less pedalling inclined) or regular, a bike tour around Sydney is one of the more fun ways to see the city (www.sydneybiketours.com.au). See the most famous Sydney landmarks as well as lesser known spots while you take an easy ride around the city.
Blue Mountains – take a guided tour to the stunning Blue Mountains outside of Sydney (www.bluemountainstoursydney.com.au). Allow a full day to discover the spectacular scenery of areas such as Jamison Valley and the Three Sisters.
Hunter Valley Wine Tasting – explore and, importantly, taste your way around the Hunter Valley, Australia’s oldest wine producing region (www.huntervalleywinetastingtours.com.au). Try the wine, see the vineyards and explore the wine making processes behind some of the world’s greatest wines.
Our top pick of Sydney tours has to be a bridge climb (www.bridgeclimb.com). It’s not cheap and it’s not for people who don’t like heights, but it is absolutely one of the best ways to see Sydney. At the highest point you’ll be over 130m above the Harbour and whatever time of day you choose you are promised stunning views and a tour you won’t forget.
