Airport - meet to begin your Sydney Layover Tour

We meet to begin your tour at the international or domestic terminal at your arrival time.

Circular Quay

Home to the Sydney Opera House, this is the historic natural harbour of 'Sydney Cove'. To one side you'll find the Harbour Bridge and the Royal Botanic Garden to the other.

Sydney Opera House

The world's most iconic music venue is a beautiful feat of human engineering. This UNESCO-listed architectural delight is a must-visit venue on every traveller's bucket list.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

No visit to Sydney is complete without a stroll across the famous Harbour Bridge to take in some of the city's most impressive harbour views.

Bondi Beach

Step onto the golden sands of Bondi Beach and you'll quickly understand why it's a favourite of locals and visitors alike. If there's time, wander down beautiful coastline to Tamarama on the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk.

The Rocks

The Rocks' historic laneways will transport you back to Sydney of yesteryear. Meander cobblestone streets, past sandstone buildings and through The Rocks market.

Mrs Macquarie's Point

This favourite lookout boasts panoramic views of the harbour, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. You'll capture all Sydney's icons in one shot from this picture-perfect location.

Darling Harbour

Lined with waterfront restaurants and shopping venues, it's also home to Wildlife Sydney Zoo and Sydney SEALIFE Aquarium. If zen is what you're looking for, make a tranquil stop at the Chinese Garden of Friendship, a haven in the city centre.

Tour finish - back at the airport

Your private Sydney Layover Tour finishes back at the international or domestic terminal in time for your onward journey.

Korhan was a great tour guide! With our limited time, he managed to fit in the highlights of Sydney. Korhan was very accomodating and tailored the tour to suit our requests. It was a very knowledgeable and personable tour!

We can’t say enough wonderful things about Korhan our driver/ guide. Our flight was diverted through Sydney last minute and we had a 5-hour layover. I called Daily Sydney Tours and they sent Korhan. He was so kind and was at the airport in 45 min. He gave us a fabulous Sydney layover tour. He went over and above and showed us around the City and beaches. It changed our whole day from being stressful to a fabulous day with a great guide. In 3 1/2 hours, we saw more than we could have expected in a whole day.

We had a nine hours overlay in Sydney and wanted to seize the time so we finally decided to make this tour. Korhan helped us to make the most of this nine hours and ensure we were back in the airport in time to catch without any issues our flight back home. We learned a lot of their history thanks to his comments and managed to enjoy the city in a way we couldn't have done on our own. We visited Sydney's highlights Bondi Beach and Opera House and some spectacular and great non-crowded viewpoints. We really felt it was the best decision as we flew back home. A totally worthy tour!

Daily Sydney Tours offers an outstanding private Sydney layover tour. They will pick you (and your luggage) up from the airport and provide a set tour of Sydney Highlights OR they will customize your tour, based on what you want to experience OR, they will do a hybrid of both. It was the absolute BEST way to make the most of the short time (7 hours) we had on our layover. Korhan was very knowledgeable and experienced. The car was very comfortable, water provided. highly recommend them.
