“Our guide, Tereza, was fantastic - knowledgable, excited about Prague, patient with our questions, and a delight to be with! The pacing was great - at the end of 6 hours, I just wished the tour had been longer! Lots to see in a wonderful city!”

“We went on the Temple and River of Kings Urban Adventure in November 2015. Our wonderful guide Wawa took us on a local bus to the Grand Palace, a huge complex of royal residences, temples, and bureaucratic buildings in the heart of Bangkok, which we explored for a couple of hours. It was desperately hot and unbelievably crowded - in one sense not at all pleasant, which is the only reason I marked "overall experience" as less than Excellent - but a brilliant immersive experience, and as a tourist, we couldn't very well begrudge the other tourists! Wawa is very knowledgable - she's also very funny - and the architecture and culture are wonderful to explore. Next we had a break from the crowd on a long tail boat on the Chao Phraya - the river of kings. This was a lot of very noisy fun, though it was hard to hear Wawa's commentary. Next, behind the Grand Palace, Wawa escorted us to the beautifully maintained Wat Pho with its spectacular Reclining Buddha. Finally she showed us Wat Phra Kaew, with its fascinating architecture, its sacred Emerald Buddha (which is actually jade), and ubiquitous cats, before making our way back to our hotel. Bring: - culturally sensitive clothes (no tank tops - 3/4 or long sleeves, knee-length or below skirts for women, or long trousers - don't make my mistake and wear 7/8 trousers! - and trousers for men) - reasonable footwear - sandals ok - you'll need to be able to take them on and off if you want to go into the temples - camera - hat - sunscreen - bottled water - some change for gratuities - patience with the crowd! Approx 4 hours, and quite tiring”

“I loved visiting the three markets which each had such different characters. Orxata, jamon, spices, oil and wine were all very informative and tasty. Perhaps a cheese tasting option or more information on the cheeses at the jamon site would be good as an addition.”

Experience Sydney from a local perspective (which, let's face it, is the best perspective imaginable!). Explore all the city icons, like The Rocks, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House, but explore them in a way most tourists don’t. We’ll take the least-walked path on this Sydney walking tour, and meander through this fascinating city’s tumultuous history and into the modern day.

This historic Sydney walk will introduce you to the old and new of Sydney. We’ll wander past Cadman’s Cottage, the oldest building in Australia. Then, take a stroll down Argyle Place, Nurses Walk, and other ‘must do’ sites such as the Customs House and the Sydney Opera House, all with a local guide to show you the bits you’d miss on your own! 

This Sydney tour is a warts and all account of the birth of modern Australia and the legacies left from decisions made and the people who made them: those who won, those who lost, and everyone in between. Factual, funny, irreverent, and anecdotal – this Sydney walking tour is a great local experience packed full of Sydney history!
