OUR DIFFERENCE
 

Here at Walking Sydney we pride ourselves in being a one of a kind tour experience. We are much more than a traditional Sydney sightseeing tour. Our theatrical performances guarantee that our Sydney walking tours are more than just "Point and Look". We promise the history will come to life, right before your very eyes.

Our tours are different from any other Sydney cultural walking tours. Venture beyond the comfortable tourist quarters of The Rocks and Circular Quay with our experienced guide and you’ll discover so much more.  We promise not to bombard you with boring facts and figures. We promise not to point out buildings and landmarks. Instead we’ll entertain you with tales tall and true. 

We invite you to come with us on a journey to

  • discover the roots of the iconic Aussie digger
  • discover the roots of the iconic Aussie Sheila
  • find out where our famous Larrikin spirit developed
  • find out how Aussie women developed such a fierce and independent spirit

Come with us and meet some ordinary people living in an extraordinary place during extraordinary times!


 

All of our Sydney guided walking tours include the following:

  • Two original performances
  • A 2 hour walk along fascinating local routes
  • Historical stories which reveal hidden gems about the Aussie character and unique events
  • Start and finish close to public transport
  • Some of the best vantage points from which to view iconic Sydney
  • A complimentary drink
  • An original souvenir booklet that includes an Aussie slang dictionary
  • Archival paintings and photos that allow our guests to compare the past and the present

OUR TESTIMONIALS

The walking sydney tour really opened my eyesand was actually different to any other tour

On the day we had the tour, our guide was Danielle, who, with the Bloke and the Larrikin story, made us feel what the past must have been like. I found the 2 hr walk was easy and much more of an experience than I was expecting. Apart from the visual content, at times we felt like we had dropped into actual situations in the hungry mile and the rocks. Really, really entertaining and a great way to learn about the other side of Sydney's history.

Highly recommended

I love walking and I love history, so Walking Sydney was a perfect choice for me. The tour leader was very knowledgeable, fleshing out the politics and social problems that affected people at the time. Her stories, assisted by the entertaining bloke and the larrikin, captured the essence of people's lives in a way that history books can't. I thoroughly recommend it.

Excellent tour !

A must for anyone visiting this beautiful City. The historical photos provided by the tour guide were a fabulous touch. Nice to see the new compared with the old.  My knowledge of Australian history is pretty poor, so I appreciated the interesting stories told by the tour guide, which were unique and not just the usual spiel. The sketches acted out by the Bloke and the Larrikin were fabulous. 
A great way to spend a couple of hours in Sydney !

Great way to see the city

Definitely recommend this walking tour. Not only is it a great way to see the city you get loads of history thrown in. Entertaining and very knowledgeable tour guide.

Excellent performances!

This is a great walking tour which gives you an insight into less well known parts of the history of Sydney. It is a bit different from your traditional mainstream tour. The stories of the bloke and the larrikin bring to life tales of gangs and the hungry mile. And the performances along the journey were particularly compelling! Our guide was very informative. And we loved the drink at the pub at the end of the walk as well as the visit to the secret underground tunnel.

Highly recommend this walking tour!

I did this walking tour not knowing what to expect. The tour took us to an area of Sydney (Millers Point) I hadn't visited before, and didn't know much about. Hearing of the changing fortunes of the workers and residents of the area during difficult economic times was fascinating and was well portrayed by Matt as The Bloke, and later The Larrikin. Loved the acting, and the tour leader's commentaries were concise and clear. Would highly recommend this tour!
