Visiting three unique galleries with a very knowledgeable guide was such a treat, and an experience I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Sydney. The tour was informative and visually stimulating, and I was left wanting more. The time flew by and I was disappointed when it came to an end. Well done guys.

Wonderfully interesting day spent with Alex and Jamie from “Local Eyes Australia”. Collected in a brand new mini van and driven around the historic Rocks area, under the Harbour Bridge and onto a great photo spot at Mrs Macquaries Chair all whilst being informed of the local history. The tour proceeded to the Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross area and onto a quirky little Cafe in trendy Paddington for a coffee stop and a quick look at a few shops. Next on the journey was a wander around the gardens of Vaucluse House and then to the gap and South Head with wonderful views of Sydney Harbour. Lunch was a treat at the famous Watson bay Hotel…yum! Time for the beach , so off to Bondi Beach…and despite it being a bit rainy we had a fabulous time walking along the beach and poping in to another cute cafe for a coffee. We ended the day with a drive through Centennial park and a bit more history!
I would recommend this tour for anyone who would like a personal, professional boutique experience, touching the highlights of Sydney…giving you a taste of what you can do if you have more time, but also giving a sufficient tour if that is all the time you had. Alex and Jamie have other tours available and I would like to give them a go if this trip is an example of the fabulous hospitality they offer!

We started the day with a senses stimulating stop: the local market, where Jamie and Alex picked up fresh produce for our lunch.
The lunch sampled the most delicious seafood and meat (including Kangaroo!!!) seasoned with bush spices and herbs, accompanied by Aussie wines. I came out feeling like I have explored Australia on a deeper level!
Thank you Jamie and Alex for opening up your house, and your excellent cooking. It was an absolutely perfect day!

We visited Sydney several times in the past and did all the normal things tourist can do in Sydney. This time we opted for something different: view Sydney through “local eyes”. We booked A privet Sydney harbour cruise this included a visit to the Sydney fish-market, where we purchased fresh fish, shrimp, sea bugs,oysters and many more goodies from the ocean .Captain Jamie moored us at a very beautiful beach and Alex prepared us unbelievable lunch !
All of this on board of a magnificent yacht!
We enjoyed Jamie and Alex’s inside knowledge of Sydney so much we booked a walking tour for the next day. A “walkabout” in Sydney, with spectacular views, picturesque cabins and some local wildlife we thoroughly viewed Sydney from a different angle
Cudo’s for this 5 star experience!
We be will back !
