Max was an amazing guide - maintained his energy & enthusiasm thru the entire tour. Loved his interjections of humor - made it very entertaining. The tour itself is so interesting. As a local, I enjoyed learning some new things about our Convict history. Very keen to try some of Max's other tours next. Thank you for a great experience!

Loved the Bloomin' Botanic trail. The adventure clues we played as teams with family and it was nice to stop at the café which is located on the route - Super fun solving the clues and discovering new parts of Sydney!

Great stories and a lovely walk around The Rocks. Got to see places you wouldn’t know to go to by yourself.

A great guide who used narrative so skillfully to accurately portray Sydney's early history.

Emily was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour
