    This is our first time in Australia and as we usually do when visiting any country, for the first time, we hire a local guide to provide not only information on the top tourist attractions, but also local customs and cultures, transportation, and any other advice on what we should see, and do during our visit. Peter was in communication very soon after we booked and we were able to work with him on what we do, and don’t like to see. As promised, he met us at our hotel, and we sat out for several hours of exploration. He was very careful to ensure , we went to all the places that were on our list as well as we popped into side, alleyways and streets to look at interesting our creations and such. We also had asked for lessons on public transport and so we used our cards quite often even for shortstops, just to make sure we were comfortable with public transit. Obviously, this helps us explore even more greatly on our own! Highly recommend!

    We did a walking tour of Sydney with Peter at City unscripted yesterday. We had the opportunity to communicate with him prior to our arrival and plan the places we wanted to see as well as the things we wanted to learn while we were here. He was super helpful also advising us to other things we should see while we are in town for the next week. We had also asked him specifically to educate us on the public transportation so we had a lot of fun learning the different schedules and stops for the trams, the heavy rail trains, and the fairies, and feel very comfortable now, and getting around on our own to further explore. I would highly recommend if you are in Sydney for the first time, spend the afternoon with Peter!

    We had a lovely afternoon with Peter. First, it was nice to have been able to communicate with him prior to our tour so we could share a list of things we wanted to see as well as a list of things we wanted to learn to do like the trains and ferries. He was excellent with communication and was promptly in the lobby of our hotel at the appointed time. We then spent the next few hours exploring Sydney And learning the trams, trains and ferry schedules and locations. It was quite fun! We saw everything from circular quay and the rocks area as well as some of the more historic architectural places like the queen Victoria building, and the old post office. We even scooted through several side alleys and streets to see different specimens of architecture or artwork. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Peter if this is your first time in Sydney. He was also super helpful with any cultural, political or questions that we had regarding our stay or places we should visit
