"If you’re keen to explore what’s below the surface then dive headfirst into this alternative walking tour. While it includes the city’s famous sights, like the Opera House, the Rocks and Sydney Harbour Bridge, on this tour you’ll get to see them in a whole new light. Your humorous guide will take you off-the-beaten-track, leading the way along hidden routes and helping you to find the best photo spots to snap envy-inducing pics that the tourist hordes miss out on. As well as a local’s lowdown on the city you’ll be given a no holds barred account of Sydney’s rich history and its evolution to the dynamic city you see today."
