About Us

Hi Folks, my name is Simon.  I am the Sydney-born and bred owner-operator of Sydney Scenic Private Tours.  I take great pleasure introducing international guests to this city’s rugged beauty and tale of humble beginnings.

I respectfully acknowledge our aboriginal custodians, a very resourceful and resilient people.  We will visit many sites and suburbs, still bearing the original names bestowed on them by our first people.

I created Sydney Scenic Private Tours to offer a range of informative tours, providing the very best service to small private groups.  We pride ourselves on customer service and flexibility, including as many options as possible, maximising your Sydney experience.

As the owner/operator I give every tour my all. It is my not only my reputation but my passion for the history of this city that has given me glowing reviews time after time.

Private Tour

I specialize in small group tours (up to 20 passengers) as this saves a massive amount of time in city traffic and enables your group of guests to better decide what you would like to do as a group.

Luxurious & comfortable vehicle

Your group will tour in style and comfort in my 15 seat Mercedes Sprinter, 12 seat Toyota Hi-Ace or 20 seat Toyota Coaster.

Itinerary & Price

As a private tour operator I can accommodate your every whim at a moments notice. I am great value for your buck compared to other private operators.
