Korhan picked us up from the airport after our 19-hour flight with 3 children, and we began our private Sydney City tour. He was prepared with a wonderful plan, but also adjusted the itinerary to fit our needs. He gave us reasonable time suggestions at each location so we could visit everything on our agenda. However, he always assured us that we could spend more time in a certain place if we desired. Korhan is extremely well educated on the culture and history of Australia. This was a VIP experience!

Leisa was there waiting for us right as we walked off our cruise ship with a friendly smile, cold water bottles, and a very nice van. She had a plan for our day and shared this with us, but then allowed us to add and take out things to suit our tastes. We saw both the main sites of the city and a few hidden gems known only to the locals as well which really made the day special. Highly recommend them.

Our day with Korhan was as good as it gets! He is a great guide with loads of information about Sydney and the surrounding area. He did a fantastic job of timing out the day so that we got to see everything on our list, all in a limited amount of time. We left Sydney feeling like we had not missed out on anything!

We had only one day in Sydney and wanted to utilise the day to fullest. Thankfully we booked this private Sydney city tour. Korhan was very professional, knowledgable and a thorough gentleman. We had a great time and saw places which are only visited by locals. Highly recommend this tour if you want to enjoy Sydney in a short amount of time.
