Hello, I am the owner of Sydney Walks and also a proud Sydneysider who loves to share his knowledge and experience with others. My interest in Sydney’s history and architecture comes from my Father who owned a construction company in Sydney, and from an early age I would accompany him to building sites, climbing to great heights on some of Sydney’s most iconic buildings, literally as they were being built.
Growing up and living in Sydney, I am passionate about sharing Sydney’s history, architecture and culture, and my mission is to entertain, enlighten and educate my guests about Sydney.
My tour experience includes walking tours in Sydney and driver guiding work around Sydney and the Blue Mountains. Come on a tour and let me share some of the best places in this great city with you.
