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.

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 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.
