What you’ll do

No matter what time of day or night, Sydney is a treasure trove for the curious traveler. With a host by your side to help you to explore, get to grips with the laid-back city vibes and ensure you don’t miss your connecting flight, all you have to do is say yes! Swap airport food for dinner on the promenade with twinkling harbor lights to accompany your cocktails, or laze on Bondi Beach with all the other beautiful people while you wait. Your whistlestop excursion will be filled with iconic sights, like the famous Sydney Opera House and Sydney Tower, or low key haunts that city-locals love. At the end of the day, it’s all about you and what you’d most like to see. Your host can’t wait to unlock the secrets of this sun-soaked city for you, so that by the time your flight comes in you’ll be asking yourself - do I really have to go home? Sydney sights? Check. Unique adventure? Check. New friends made? Double check.
