My girlfriend and I recently went on a Real Blue Mountains Tour, and it was hands down one of the most memorable outings of our time in Sydney thus far. We were able to organise all the tour logistics with Suanne, who was incredibly efficient and a pleasure to liaise with. Being from Italy, it was important to us that we had an Italian-speaking guide. Although we speak and understand English, we wanted the tour to be in our native language so we could have a better understanding of the area. Suanne organised for us to go on tour with David, a native Italian speaker, who was a real delight to travel with. He came to pick us up and drove us to the mountains, giving us a mini tour of Sydney on the way there. Fortunately we had great weather and so the views of the mountains were wonderful. We went to flat rock (amazing photo opportunities), scenic world, the quaint little town of Leura, and saw the famous Three Sisters. David made the day exciting and interesting and we were constantly learning new things about the landscape. On the way home we stopped at Featherdale Wildlife Park, where we got to see all the incredible and peculiar animals they have in Australia. A particular highlight was seeing a litter of baby dingoes being fed!

Thank you for such a *fantastico* review and we are really glad you enjoyed your day in the mountains and that David could deliver it to you in Italian.
How luck to see the baby dingoes being fed at Featherdale! Most important of all you had a memorable day. Grazie.

We were a family coming to Sydney for the first time. After many many emails to Suanne we decided on two tours with the company. The Real Sydney Tour and The Real Blue Mountains Tour. Firstly I have never met a company or guide who cared so much about us. Nothing we asked for or requested was too much trouble. Our guide Naomi was sweet, funny and full of information. But when she saw our child getting bored she quickly switched topics to keep him entertained. After our Sydney day,which also included many playground stops at our request, Naomi organised for us to catch a sea plane ride over Sydney. She waited with us until we departed and sent us some lovely pictures afterwards. This was all an added bonus for us. We loved the Sydney tour and felt like we saw so much. On the next day we visited the Blue Mountains and again everything was just perfect. It was a beautiful area and the views we saw is something we wont ever forget. When we went to the little wildlife park at the end of the day my child was so happy. Imagine being able to pat a real Koala and have photos as a memory. We hope to come back to Sydney very soon and definitely do more tours with this company.

Firstly we need to apologise for the delay in our review. Nick our new friend, thank you for showing us beautiful Sydney through your eyes.We had a special time living like locals and we never felt rushed or like tourists. In fact we felt more like we had a friend showing us around and this is exactly what we wanted. When you read reviews its so hard to decide which way to go but we just felt that Real Sydney Tours were more personal and went a little bit extra and we were not wrong. Our two tours were special. Thanks you Nick for your great guidance and thanks you Suanne for exra help and information you gave to us.

We just returned from a month in Australia and we started our adventure in Sydney. While riding the Manly Ferry we decided we should venture outside Sydney and see the Blue Mountains. We contacted Real Sydney Tours and were fortunate to book a private tour with Nick. Everything was first class: from booking with Suanne to meeting Nick (our guide). We felt like we saw the Blue Mountains with a friend rather than a tour guide.

Nick arrived at our hotel right on time and provided us with a very memorable day. In addition to showing us about the beautiful Blue Mountains, Nick introduced us to Australian food: TimTams, Vegemite, Lollies, Passion Fruit and our favorite - - freshly baked meat pies. On the way back to Sydney, we stopped at a wild life reserve. Initially we thought this was a bit touristy but Nick personally showed us around and gave us insights to many of the animals; this proved to be valuable for the rest of our Australian stay - we were able to identify animals in the wild (including bats) based on our time with Nick.

Meeting and learning from Australians was one of the lasting memories of our month long trip - - Nick and Suanne set a high bar ! We highly recommend using Real Sydney Tours.
