The best way to get to know the Australian city in depth. Sydney here we go! We will meet at 31 Playfair Street at 10:00 am to start a two-hour walk that will take us to see the main tourist attractions in Sydney.

Walking from the old building we will begin to see the coast and, of course, the popular Harbor Bridge. The bridge, which crosses Sydney Bay at a height of almost 50 meters above the water, is an essential photo on your visit to the city.
We will arrive at Customs House, a building that for 145 years fulfilled Sydney's customs functions. We will take advantage of this stop to learn a little more about the city's past.
