This tour was very informal because the Australian company doing it keeps the tourist group to a.maximum of 8. Therefore it was easier to get along with other people in the group. The tour was very interesting.starting with a ferry trip to the national park and a 3 hour walk in the park taking in views of the harbour, beaches and various houses that were lived in by famous historical people. The walk can be a bit tiring for pensioners so be sure you can hike and wear good walking footwear. Also it would be wise to bring a bottle of water. The tour ends with lunch and ferry return. Lunch was on my opinion poor as we were encouraged to have a takeaway fish and chip meal that was cheap and eaten from cardboard container. Plastic cutlery included. Meal comes free with the tour, but drink of any kind we had to pay for extra. I was disappointed with the lunch and would have preferred having a sit down lunch in a restaurant with use of proper cutlery and salt, vinegar which was not given with takeaway. All considered the guide was young and friendly and very informative, and made the tour interesting. This tour could have been five star only for the lunch being the let down.

This tour was amazing and our group of eight highly recommends it. Our guide Bell was superb and the scenery was breathtaking with views of Sydney Harbour not usually seen by tourists. We loved discovering the beautiful bays and learning about the history of the area, not to mention Bell's delicious home made muesli bars! The tour was the highlight of our time in Sydney.

The Sydney Harbour National Park Walking Tour is a 'must do' for all Sydneysiders, Interstate and International visitors. Starting at Circular Quay, you catch the ferry across one of the most beautiful harbours in the world to Rose Bay. From there you start the walk, while an expert guide informs you of local history. Continuing to walk you join the Hermitage Foreshore Track, which has to be one of the most spectacular walks in Sydney, taking in all the harbour views, Nielsen Park and Parsley Bay. Reaching the end at Watsons Bay for a much deserved fish and chip lunch at Doyle's at Watsons Bay. The walk is very well organised and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this walk to all who enjoy the outdoors, nature and of course, waking.

This experience was truly exceptional. The views were outstanding and the walk was relatively challenging. And the tour guide's enthusiasm was infectious. It really is nice to go on tour with a person who obviously likes her work so much. The itinerary was well put together and every element of the day fitted well together. And the fish and chip lunch was very welcome after the walk. Keep up the good work Berangere - you truly have a tour that every able bodied person should experience.

After the razmattaz and excitement of Circular Quay, the Opera House, etc. this was a super pleasant way to spend half a day looking at Sydney Harbour from calmer shores. Bérangère Graham was our delightful guide. French, but now a committed Australian she guided us from Rose Bay to Watson's Bay passing through some delectable suburbs and interesting spiders' webs. The ferry rides there and back were an adventure too and provided yet more angles to photograph the iconic sights of Sydney's magnificent harbour. One of my highlight activities.
