Lucky to have Brian as our guide. So knowledgeable and informative along with his jokes made it such an enjoyable trip.

Prior to the tour I didn't know what the Rocks were so I have learned so much about Sydney and Australia along with this particular area.

Thank you Brian from us all in Derby, UK for a fab 90 minutes. As a travel agent back home who runs my own business I will be recommending this trip to my clients.

Thank Tcnick1982

Great walk,great sights and a very informative guide Brian.My first time in the Rocks area and I was impressed by the history of this area and how the convicts worked and lived back in the 1800,s there are still some old buildings and walkways kept the same and all the sandstone used for buildings and paths still kept in good condition.I loved seeing and walking through these old buildings trying to envisage how it was like back in those times.

Recently took a walking tour of The Rocks section in Sydney Australia. The tour, which lasts for about 90 Minutes, takes you through the history of Australia with regard to British colonization and creation of a penal colony starting in what is referred to as The Rocks. This right now is one of the hottest areas in Sydney. The tour takes you through passages one would not ordinarily see from the street walking on your own. Our guide was great pointing out all of the buildings, explaining the history of the area and telling stories as we walked through the neighborhood. The group was small enough that everyone could participate in a conversation about what they were seeing. Highly recommend the tour as one of the highlights of my visit to Sydney.
