Our shore excursion with Daily Sydney Tours was beyond our expectations. They picked up our small group of six at the Royal Princess and took us into Sydney for an enlightening experience. Our guide Korhan was so knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating.

Our shore excursion 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! Thanks Korhan!

Used Daily Sydney Tours as an alternative to the cruise line shore excursion. Much nicer with a comfortable small van and private guide. Hit all the main sites including Bondi beach, Opera House, etc. We had an amazing day exploring the city on our short Sydney shore excursions.

We took our two teenage children on a private shore excursion with Korhan and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. Korhan was an excellent guide, giving lots of interesting information. His recommendations were spot on. However, he did not dictate our route or schedule- he made sure we were happy with every suggestion. He is friendly and knowledgeable and keen for every pro have a great day out.
