Linda_U March 2020

We only had a short time in Sydney, so our excursion, Sydney by Night, was perfect. Scott picked us up at the pier, even a little early. We were able to view the Opera House and Harbor Bridge, as well as Mrs. McQuarries chair. The Harry's Meat Pie food truck was cool, the old pub was a delight. Thanks for the great trip, Scott!

ggarrene January 2020

This was a fun tour! Scott is warm, funny and truly loves his hometown. Highly recommend this tour, so much better than a bus tour any day. Thanks Scott for a lovely time.

Mary Ann S January 2020

I've always had a soft spot for privately owned businesses simply because of the personalized service. I couldn't have chosen a better guide to show us Sydney at night. Scott took us to a side neighborhood before the police closed down the streets where we were able to see a dry run of the New Year's Eve festivities at the Harbor....sort of ike a back-stage pass to a major event. Turns out Scott also enjoys a good ghost story. He brought us to a known haunted pub where we shared stories. A must-do indeed.

Don't you wish everyone who offered tours was professional, reputable, knowledgeable, funny, authentic, interesting, and friendly? So do we! And that's exactly what we got with Scott on this marvelous tour of Sydney by night. My husband and I have traveled all over the world and taken lots of tours and excursions, but nothing has compared to our experience with Scott. He is not only an authentic Aussie, but he's also an experienced traveler himself--so he knows how to do it right. We enjoyed taking pictures of the various sights (Scott knows exactly where to go to get the most iconic views), but even if we hadn't brought our cameras, it wouldn't matter because Scott captured the experience for us himself on his camera phone (really exceptional quality). What a nice touch--no need for those awful selfies! Scott conveniently picked up and dropped us off at our hotel, and he was right on time. He provided us with contact info & specifics on his vehicle so we would know what to look for. We enjoyed our dinner at Harry's and a drink to round out the evening at the pub. Our only regret is that we didn't have a few weeks to enjoy the rest of Australia with Scott. We strongly recommend this tour and any others with Scott and his wife Julia. Even though we didn't meet her, I'm sure she is as delightful as Scott. Best tour ever--don't miss it!

This was absolutely fantastic. Scott picked me up at my hotel, in a very comfortable car, and took me around the famous spots. Sydney by night is beautiful, and with all the info he gave during the tour extra enjoyable! We drove over the Harbour Bridge, with its beautiful lamps, visited the famous pie stand and ended at one of the oldest pubs in Sydney for a drink. I highly recommend to all to take the tour! It's on the top of my list of my days in Sydney!

sarahjamiedennis September 2019

I’m so glad I decided to take this tour. Everything looks so different in the dark and to be given the chance to be driven around and see the landmarks lit up was beautiful. Scott was a great host - easy to talk to, friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend putting aside an evening to do this tour. Cheers Scott ☺️

Y9378NMnancym September 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our night tour of Sydney with Scott! A delightful man with lots of local history and unique experiences. Went well above and beyond finding us what we really wanted! He took some amazing photos and shared them with us too!

Kysimir September 2019

I booked this tour on a whim (I typically have a minimum review count to verify trustworthiness) and I am so glad that I did!! Scott gave us a professional, personal, and memorable tour of the city! You can tell that he has a lot of passion for the city and cared a lot to make sure that we had a good visit both during and after his tour, complete with history facts and recommendations on things to do the rest of our trip. Absolutely loved my time with this tour! I wouldn't say that this trip is sufficient to say you've experienced all of Sydney, but it serves a great niche that other tours (e.g. boat, blue mountain, wine, bus) dont serve in the slightest! 10/10 must do.

Robin Z March 2019

Scott and Julia did awesome in offering this spectacular tour - fell in love with this beautiful city with the various views of night lights and skyline - definitely recommend !

ErieGrammy February 2019

What a professional job Scott provided with outstanding personal photos of us and this beautiful city. Scott picked us up at the ship's dock (he provided make of car and license number to verify it was him!) We four were all ears for his informative, well planned, thoughtful and fun evening. A drive through the city with historic stories along the way (Coca-Cola sign), cruising through neighborhoods of the rich and famous, a stop at Harry's Cafe de Wheels (along with a taste), and how it came to be, stops along the harbor for personal photos, and to complete the perfect evening, local appetizers and champagne. Such a personable, likable man who makes you feel as though you've known him forever. Scott was very thoughtful and a true professional as well. Thanks for the wonderful memories! One of our best personal tours of our entire Viking ocean cruise. Thanks to his wife also for her assistance in details/planning!

kishorbilimoria February 2019

Sydney by night is an excellent tour worth making since Sydney by night is spectacular with beautiful night sunset views, Sydney Harbor view and Sydney Bridge. The tour operators who are husband and wife team are very trustworthy and dependable and knowledgeable couple. They take wonderful pictures for you if needed. I will highly recommend this tour by Scott.

SaxManBob December 2018

Thank you Scott!, your tour not only gave us wonderful photo memories, but also your knowledge and history of the area was so informative. We totally enjoyed your tour and yes Harry's and the Hero of Waterloo is a must!. It was a wonderful way for my wife and I to bid farewell to Sydney one of the most beautiful cities we have visited, it is something we will never forget, thanks again!!......

BrambleRose28 October 2018

Scott was our tour guide and he was very informative. The description and views of the waterfront suburbs we visited were very good. The views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge from The Rocks area and then from Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair were spectacular. Supper at Harry’s Café de Wheels, a wonderful view of the harbour from the north shore and then drinks at the Hero of Waterloo pub in The Rocks. Pick up and drop off at the Hotel made it all very convenient and we enjoyed the evening.

Stew921 July 2018

Our guide, Scott, picked us up at our hotel at the agreed upon time. A tour of the neighborhoods was enhanced by Scott's expert descriptions and stories. We went through about 5 neighborhoods before dusk. We stopped at Harry's Cafe de Wheels and dined on Tiger Pies for dinner. Off to the park for night photos of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Next was an area under the Bridge for more night photos and a tour(?) of the most unusual public restrooms we have ever seen, followed by a champagne, cheese & fruit snack before our trip back to our hotel. We LOVED this tour.

Susan S January 2018

What a fun night! Sydney is a busy, exciting city and totally different at night. The highlight of the evening was sitting out watching the bridge and the Opera House from across the water while enjoying champagne and canapes that were provided by our guide.

Elaine G January 2018

I had a fabulous experience. Julia and Scott are not only true professionals but extremely thoughtful. The tour was informative and gave an opportunity for remarkable pictures. I was feeling ill and Scott stopped at a Chemist to find me medicine - so kind. I considered canceling as I was under the weather but so very glad I didn't. This is more than worth the modest cost.

ploppenheim December 2017

Nice guy and nice tour. If you are doing a day time tour as well, there will be some overlap but the city is quite different at night. Grab a light dinner before you go as canapes are served at the last stop. It was lovely spot. The perfect weather was an added bonus.

For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
