Our tours operate on a Wednesday and Saturday, commencing 10am at the Sydney Town Hall  and ending at a popular Newtown bar approx 5pm.

Sydney’s most vibrant neighbourhoods are scattered & diverse.   Travelling in a small group of 8 or less, we'll weave our way from galleries to secret bars, past award winning architecture & urban street art.  Food options & shopping opportunities abound as we visit hidden food alleys, artisinal markets, unique boutiques & vintage stores.  On our travels we'll weave our way from Chinatown to the urban renewal zones of Ultimo & Chippendale,  We'll pop into historical Sydney Uni, experience leafy cafe culture & Saturday markets at Glebe, and hop across the city to Paddington's beautiful boutique lined backstreets.  We'll pop into Alexandria's farmyard-foodie heaven, The Grounds of Alexandria, and finish up with some Bohemian colour & grunge in Newtown.

The Tour -boho blitz!

As Sydney’s inner city scene is ever evolving, our itineraries are kept a little flexible in order to take in the best of what's happening on the day - random street festivals, pop up exhibitions, cool new bars or up and coming neighbourhoods. 

Please note, this is quite a fast paced tour.  We realize your time is limited and Sydney has a lot to offer!   To maximize our time we choose to hop between locations by private vehicle, then explore each neighbourhood on foot for a true local experience.
