Great experience

Amanda’s sharing and knowledge. Learned so much about Australia’s first people. Really made me think about how we see life and this earth.

Eye opening!

Amanda was an excellent guide. I learned a ton about the original custodians of the Sydney Harbour. White people need to do more to not only acknowledge this legacy but to try to honor the sustainability and community that is essential to understanding your role in this place.
Worth the time and money

Our guide was friendly and engaging. We learned so much about the First Nation culture, lore and current struggles
Worst tour EVER

The guide was terrible. It was not knowledgeable of the aboriginal culture He spoke about gender todems for more than 30 minutes He also told us (3 on the tour) we wouldn’t be able to hear him because of the karaoke he did the night before I requested a refund but haven’t heard anything from the Company
Great deal!

Great accommodation and informative. Little walking so wear comfortable shoes. Excellent for solo travelers as well.
Highlight of my Trip
Neill_P, Apr 2022
One of the highlights of my trip to Sydney. I learned so much about the Aboriginal culture and our guide was very open to questions and discussing the answers in great detail! I would absolutely recommend this trip to anybody visiting Sydney or anybody that lives there that has not experienced it yet. I would give 6 stars if I could!

A wonderful walking tour that highlighted the Aboriginal peoples harmony with the landscape and their familial connections to the land, the animals and each other. If anyone is interested in developing a greater knowledge of the First Nation people groups I would highly recommend joining one of these tours.
Informative Tour

We were guided by the lovely Amanda, who was delightful. She told us about the tribal history of the Aboriginal people and showed us how they lived in the area. It was a slow-paced tour allowing plenty of time for questions and friendly chat.
