GENERAL TOUR QUESTIONS:
Why do we offer free tours?
The tours are offered on a “pay what you think it’s worth” model so people of any budget are able to turn up and enjoy the tour and discover and learn about our great city regardless of your budget. We also believe you shouldn’t have to pay for the service before you have experienced it, we think you should decide how much the tour is worth when the tour is finished.
Do I need to book?
Are the tours ever cancelled?
No we walk Rain, Hail or shine!
Are the tours accessible for wheelchairs and or prams?
The’ Sydney sights’ tour is accessible to both pram and wheelchairs.
Unfortunately due to the historical nature of the rocks ‘The Rocks at 6pm’ tour is not accessible for wheelchairs. We have had plenty of prams on the Rocks at 6pm tour however, it does require carrying the pram up a few flights of stairs.
We are a group of 10 or more why can’t we just show up?
We make calculated predictions on the number of tour participants on every tour. A large group throws out these calculations and effects the tour quality for everyone else. So we do ask that you please contact us in advance so we can organise a private tour for you as we will not be able to accept groups of 10 or more on our regular scheduled tours.
How much does it cost for a private tour?
We aim to be very competitive with private tour pricing but it does depends on the length of the tour and number of participants. We offer tours for school groups, corporate groups and families. Please contact us and we can provide you with a quote.
