Who are Sydney Scenic Private Tours?

My name is Simon and I am the Sydney born and bred owner-operator of Sydney Scenic Private Tours.  

It is my pleasure to introduce international guests to this city’s rugged beauty and tell the tale of its’ humble beginnings.  I acknowledge our aboriginal custodians.  Many of our suburbs still bear the original names that were bestowed on them by these very resourceful and resilient people.

Sydney Scenic Private Tours are about offering a range of tours, providing the very best service to private, small and conference groups, wishing to gain historical knowledge.   We pride ourselves on providing flexibility to include as many options as requested to maximise your Sydney experience.

Our Sydney tour itineraries focus not only on the iconic attractions but also incorporate lesser-known locales.  They are particularly suited to anyone looking for a greater understanding of the city’s history, aboriginal heritage and the multi-cultural society that it is today. 

We have tours of varying intricacy to accommodate any length of stay in Sydney, whether it be hours or days. We offer a private, door to door service.  Which means we can collect you from the airport or harbour passenger terminal, show you all the iconic sights plus more and have you on the way to your next destination before lunch if time is restricted.

Or we can indulge your every sightseeing whim, recommend some of the world’s best cuisine for a leisurely lunch or chauffeur you to every art gallery or museum you wish to see.

So let's get out there and experience one of the great modern cities of world!
