Sydney is Australia’s oldest and largest city and ranks alongside Vancouver, Cape Town and Rio as one of the world’s most stunning oceanside cities. It’s laid-back outdoor lifestyle and physical attributes make it the easiest and most pleasant of cities to visit. The people who live here are friendly and energetic.
All of its attractions lie within easy reach of the city centre. Sydney’s harbour is its natural playground, and at the heart of so much of what the city has to offer. It has a wide-ranging cultural life, dynamic food scene and vibrant cityscape of outstanding contemporary and colonial architecture. Iconic beaches and five major national parks deliver unforgettable experiences. The Rocks are the oldest part of Australia’s oldest city, an intriguing cobblestone quarter of colour and character, located on the harbour shore.
The Tailor highly recommends that you include touring with Local Eyes to ensure that you discover as much as you can about Sydney.
Tours are on a private basis where the tour itinerary is tailored to suit your interests. Below are two of The Tailor’s favourite itineraries that we regularly utilise as private tours.
Full Day Private Charter
The jewel in Local Eyes’ crown is their beautifully appointed, luxury vessel Iluka. The customised cruiser brings to life Sydney’s icons from the serenity of the harbour and is a truly exceptional way to view the city and surrounds.
A private full day charter with Iluka lets you to spend a full day relaxing on the harbour, yet still allows for a tour of the city’s iconic sites. Away from the hustle and bustle of other tourists, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the city in peace.
The day’s itinerary can be customised to your needs, depending on your interests. So, whether you choose to stay within the harbour’s waters, or venture out to the famous Manly Beach. Perhaps you’d like to simply relax onboard and take in Sydney’s famous landmarks, or step off the vessel to visit a local fish market – purchasing fresh ingredients for a delicious onboard lunch. Whatever your interests, Local Eyes will build a day to suit you.
