History of Sydney
Nicole_H, Sept 2022
Learning some of this history of Sydney when things first started was very interesting. Very cool way to see some of Sydney.
Fun & eclectic night out!

We really enjoyed our experience the other night exploring the back streets of The Rocks under moonlight with our guide Emily. So many interesting stories & fab puns - would highly recommend!
Great Views and Tall Stories

We had a great time walking around the Rocks seeing all sorts of views that were amazing. The stories were good, and it was great to see where the scene of the crime was, it helped to visualise the story being told.
