Private Sydney tours

Private Sydney Tours

The city of Sydney is packed with iconic landmarks, beautiful views and important historical sites. Our Sydney private tours combine must-see attractions – like Sydney Harbour, the Opera House and Bondi Beach – with lesser-known gems throughout the city. If meeting a kangaroo or koala is more to your liking, Sydney is also an excellent place to see some of Australia’s unique wildlife. Your tour can include a variety of zoos, wildlife sanctuaries and aquariums all easily reached from the city centre.
