Hey there! I'm an American expat living abroad since 2011. My passion for culture and travel have lead me to live and travel throughout Asia, Europe, and now Australia. I've been calling beautiful Sydney home for nearly the past two years and couldn't be happier. I spend most of my time in the central and eastern suburbs, but enjoy exploring outward whenever possible. I work in the coffee industry and can't live without a daily strong long black! As a vegan, I'm particularly proud of our rapidly expanding plant based living/dinning options and as an art/music/culture enthusiast, I'm often at a live event related to these activities. Sydney is a sprawling city with many interesting nooks and crannies that get overlooked on the typical tourist trail. I'd love nothing more than to share my quirky perspective of the city with you and I assure that you'll not only experience a great day out, you'll also gain a new friend :)

I have lived in Sydney all my life and I know the vibe of my city. I have recently studied the early colonial history of my city. I can give you historic walks as well show what a good place to eat or drink. I will tailor my knowledge and experience to match what you want.

I am passionate with tourism as I enjoy kinds of things in my city.I had been many cities in my life and experience different types of tour, so I know how to help visitors match a tour. Sydney is an active and fascinating city for me to explore, I discover new thing and event to do all the time. It is so amazing how the people relax their time and spend their holidays when you live in Sydney. I love share my stories to someone new to Sydney and I want to show the interests, food and places to someone else. My friends regard me as a city seeker, whatever festivals, typical restaurants, funny pubs, beautiful gardens, sport events, i will be found out immediately and i can lead people find new attractions in one place. Moreover, I had photography experience for 7 years so that i can make photo sets of our tour for tourists to record happy time during journey. I am good at food and wine appreciation as my childhood experience(my father run a restaurant so I am good at food distinguishing and tasting). When I come to Sydney, I also take wine tasting course, so I could help a lot when we hold a feast or festival.

Hello and welcome to Sydney! I'm Don and I'm one of the many who believe this is the best place to live the world. I love the history, culture and lifestyle in Sydney, and if I wasn't taking you around, I'd probably be at the same places anyway. I love reading by the beach (I'm an avid consumer of history and politics), running around my neighbourhood and the headland, and hanging out with my mates at new pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants (as well as a few of our old favourites). I'm continually fascinated by the way the city has changed, and I'm sure my friends would rather I tell you about it rather than bugging them!

Hello everyone! I'm Paolynne but you can call me Paopao! And yes that me in the photo, and yes that's a place in Sydney that I can take you to ;) Not the usual harbour bridge or opera house photo but I know the best vantage points for those, not to worry! I'm a rising travel, lifestyle and foodie instagrammer who knows pretty much all the books and crannies that Sydney has to offer as I like to stay on top of the game. My full time work is an accountant so apart from getting all the best insights that Sydney has to offer I can also give you some General tax or financial advice too if you would like to know haha! What makes me unique is my young age and my ability to be highly relatable to any age group! I know so many people from all walks of life and can share great insight on everything that I have gathered. I love Sydney for their beautiful scenery and bursting foodie scene. There is so much to love about Sydney that I'm pretty much a full time tourist myself in my own city that I grew up from! I always find new adventures and places to visit in my spare time and am often a go-to influencer for those around me. So why not have a try and let's go on an adventure together! Your interests are my interests so shoot me your itinerary and I can help plan your travels and give you the best route plus recommend you more. I love everything and opening myself up for new ideas and adventures! So let's meet up for this journey!

I am a very interested and social guy. I love everything about Sydney. The vibe, the culture, the people, and most especially the food! I frequently travel to different places in Sydney to just explore.
