Why merely see Sydney through a tourist’s eyes, when you can experience it like a local on this Luxury Day Tour. Immerse yourself on this walking tour guaranteed to see many of the famous parts of Sydney and surrounds. Enjoy the flexibility to go at your own pace while learning from your very own local guide!
Your day begins being met by your private guide and walked down to catch a ferry across the scenic and not to mention iconic Sydney Harbour waters over to Taronga Wharf. Disembarking the ferry, the famous Sydney skyline will be shown to you before you set off along a shady track adjoining the beautiful harbourside.
The history will unfold as you absorb the tranquil bays and watch the busy Manly ferries travel up and down the harbour – perfect harbourside viewing and people watching! There are many spots perfect for stopping to admire the beauty of the busy Sydney Harbour and neighbouring bays and numerous historical barracks and military battery gun locations.
Next you will take a stroll among natural bush areas located within minutes from the bustling city of Sydney and you’ll be able to see unique Australian fauna and flora, keeping a close eye for native bird life. Climbing to the top if the main escarpment will unveil stunning views across Sydney Harbour leading to the vast Pacific Ocean in the distance.
Your guide will then take you for a walk down to the long metal pathway known as “stairway to heaven” opening up to parklands on the stunning Balmoral Beach. Take your shoes off and take a stroll along the water’s edge. If the weather is kind you may wish to take a swim, paddle or simply sit under a shady tree and admire the passers-by with stunning views as your backdrop.
Your guide will point out a choice of cafes and restaurants for lunch you may wish to take advantage of, but there is certainly no rush. Your tour concludes as you catch a local bus back to Taronga Wharf in time to take a return ferry back to the city and back to your accommodation approximately 2:30pm.
