" We wanted to do something adventurous and different when we visited Sydney and the Coast tour sure fit the bill. This tour was the best! We went to great locations where there was not another tour bus around. We got to spend time on the beach which really made this day special and even had time for a nice seafood lunch at a typical ozzie seaside 'pub' that was so fresh and great prices.

The visit to the wildlife and reptile park was incredible and we never thought we would get so close that we could feed and pet the animals. the wildlife park is in a real genuine bush setting and was much better than the park we visited with a different tour operator

Scott was really pleasant, fun and made sure we had a great time, nothing was too much trouble for my partner and I. He told us funny and interesting stories throughout the day and at the end of the wonderful day when he dropped us back to our hotel in the city it was hugs all round and we felt like we had spent the day with an old friend

If you are visiting Australia Do This Tour!!!! You won't regret it!!!  Go to the places ozzies go for thier summer weekend holidays and dodge all the big crowded generic tour buses!

We will be back in a couple of years Scott to try your other tours. Thanks for making our trip to Oz so memorable!"

"Wow, what can I say? my Husband and I had such a good time on this tour. We have been on many small group tours before but this was our first private tour (we are now convinced this is the only way to go sightseeing) Scott was such a wonderful host and we feel like we have known him for years! It was a bonus going on a tour with an Australian local who has lived in Sydney most of his life and who also knows the beutiful, secret coastal areas intimately. Thank you Scott and Sydney Private Day Tours for organising a wonderful tour. The morning tea and the tropical fruit platter that they provided was delicious. We are now going to try to find passion fruits at home in LA "

"We used Sydney Private Day Tours initially for our Sydney City sightseeing when we first arrived in Sydney before heading to Cairns in North Queensland. After a cyclone hit the island we were staying on in Queensland we contacted Julia to see if they could fit us in a last minute tour. They could not have been more accommodating, we were picked up from the airport and then the following day Julia had arranged a customized version of this Central Coastal Tour that included Tree Tops ziplining for our daughter. What a great few days we got to spend with Julia and Scott and a silver lining to our holiday"
