About
This day out is for your group only and starts with Sydney's breathtaking harbour, followed by the northern beaches and the Ku-ring-gai National Park. We start with the area north of Sydney Harbour, where we will see some superb ocean and harbour beaches, historical sites and harbour vistas. We then make our way to West Head in the Ku-Ring-Gai National Park to see aboriginal rock art and one of the best views in Sydney. The panorama includes Lion Island and the Palm Beach isthmus. Next stop is lunch at Palm Beach, which is known for the TV series Home and Away. Recharged from the refreshments we make our way to Barrenjoey Lighthouse followed by a short stop at Avalon Beach. It is time to make our way back to Manly to catch a ferry to the city or we can drive back. The day is finished with a walking tour of the Opera House exterior or another option which we will discuss on the day. We will cover a lot of ground so be ready to enjoy some exceptional places and scenery.

Outstanding Day!
Mar 2020
We were pleasantly surprised by the breadth of this tour. We covered many, many sights, but had the flexibility to enjoy each one. Greg clearly tailors the tour to your desires, and is knowledgeable about each area.

Thank you for the wonderful review. Small private groups allow the day to be adjusted to achieve the best outcome for Sydney visitors. Very pleased to hear that you have worn the Sydney Nimble t shirt after the tour!

Sydney Nimble Tours Delivers - Again!!
Jan 2020
We made a return trip to Sydney in Jan. 2020, and contacted Greg a few weeks before. He put another fabulous, customized tour together taking into account all new sights that we hadn't visited in 2019. The best summary of the overall experience is that you do not feel like a tourist, which is extremely important to us. We went swimming in a beautiful, hidden spot on a fabulous day, experienced two art galleries, relaxed in a microbrewery with all of the locals, and had a great dinners at his restaurant recommendations. It was exactly what we wanted. Greg also takes high quality photos of your trip that highlight the candid side and which you will want to keep forever. Also, be sure to ask Greg for a Sydney Nimble Tours T-shirt, which is very comfortable and has a great design. You will love the Sydney Nimble Tours experience!

There is nothing more rewarding than to have guests return for a tour 12 months after their first tour with us. It was wonderful to have you guys back and who knows we might see you again in Sydney in the years ahead! We recommend that visitors to Sydney should allow at least 4-5 days for their visit here - so much to see and do - Royal National Park, Blue Mountains, Northern beaches and Sydney Harbour, Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.........And if you can't see it all in one trip why not come back a year or two later and pick up what was missed!

Enjoyable experience
Aug 2019
Sydney turned on the sunshine for our tour of West Head and surrounds. Greg our tour guide was very friendly, enthusiastic and flexible with the itinerary so we could stop at places that took our fancy. The first stop after a lovely drive through Kuring gai National Park was the Basin Aboriginal Art Site. Only a short flat walk from the carpark of 5-10 min and we reached the Aboriginal rock engravings. Such a tranquil and spiritual setting for these fascinating engravings. We had the place to ourselves with only the birds for company. Next stop was a short walk along the Red Hands track to see the caves with 2000 yr old painted hands. The highlight of our trip was the stunning vista from West Head Lookout. Breathtaking.

For the next leg of our tour Greg took us to his favourite stretch of the Manly to Spit Bridge Walk for more breathtaking views of natural bushland and Sydney's magnificent Harbour. Next was a leisurely stroll around the estate of St Patrick's College with it's lovely Gothic building before heading to Greg's secret spot and a walk from the iconic Manly Beach to the picturesque Shelley Beach. Greg took us to the new Harbord Diggers where there were plenty of eating opportunities and from there a walk up to a surfing memorial honouring the "Duke" and local surfing legends. To top off an amazing day we caught a glimpse of a whale out to sea.

I would highly recommend Sydney Nimble Tours with their local knowledge, for a thoroughly enjoyable and personal experience.

The northern beaches and Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park have so much to offer it is not possible to see it all in one day. There are many offbeat walks and places to check out. Sydney Nimble is glad you enjoyed the day and it was terrific to spot a whale.

Excellent personalized tour
Although Sydney Harbor is impressive, getting out of the city center is once again, a great option. A tour of the North beaches up to West Head and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park is a great way to spend the day. My wife and I took a tour with a relatively new company (Sydney Nimble Tours) and the owner/operator, Greg, was extremely nice and very accommodating. Even though we booked last minute, he gave us a custom tour based on our interest in scenic photography.
