I fell back in love with my home town
Sep 2020 • Family
After months cooped up, this tour reignited my love affair with Sydney, our home city. My 8yo daughter and I were collected by Peter yesterday morning from our home for a day of many firsts for both of us. My daughter was super impressed that his immaculate VW van was classed as a limo so we could take the bus lane like VIPs! Peter was so knowledgeable, being a Sydney-sider born and bred (whereas I am not), was terrific company, and had thought of every single detail so we could just relax and enjoy so many experiences that I realistically couldn’t/wouldn’t put together myself. Before the pandemic, I wouldn’t have thought to tour my home city, but I fully recommend this experience as Peter made everything easy. I now have a long list of activities to get away from the screens and take advantage of our harbour city.

Many thanks for your review, Suzanne! It's always a challenge to impress locals with their own city, let alone show them something brand new. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and I'm really pleased you both did too

Excellent overview of the city
Feb 2020
We were visiting Sydney on a cruise and wanted an overview of the city in one day. Peter's tour did just that by taking us to all of the sites and neighborhoods. He was very knowledgeable and provided excellent commentary along the way. More than that, he was very personable and we really enjoyed the day with him. I highly recommend his services if you have limited time and want to see the many great areas of Sydney that are out of the immediate downtown area.

Mixed Experience
We had done tours of Sydney in the past and enjoyed our visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Peter drove us through many Sydney neighborhoods, but was very argumentative and disparaging of the US. He didn’t seem to know a lot of Sydney’s history and argued that my husband was wrong when he tried to point out interesting bits. We won’t use him again.

Your husband spent the day, persistently and belligerently, interrupting me with "interesting bits" that were, almost without exception, wrong. I largely ignored his comments, but corrected him where I felt it was important to do so. Towards the end of the tour, you admitted that his memory was failing in his old age. You even volunteered several pieces of information about yourselves that he’d gotten wrong throughout the day As for my depth of knowledge of Sydney's history, I had only limited opportunities to share it since 99% of the commentary on the tour was provided by your husband

Peter helped make an Amazing city more Amazing
Jan 2020
My wife and I visited Sydney with another couple in January and engaged Peter for a full day driving/walking tour of Sydney and surrounds on the MAIN ATTRACTIONS & MORE TOUR. We have had the benefit of great guides of the highest ability on several continents ... and Peter quickly jumped into the top 5 on our lifetime list. While many are pleasant and great at visiting and touring, Peter's laid back Aussie humor and style brings the area alive ... with a spark of wit and wisdom. He met us with his comfortable blue/silver van at our hotel, had planned our visit so we became familiar and comfortable with the local ferry system, made great restaurant recommendations, explained what and where we would tour, and engaged our imagination throughout. To really bring things alive, he kicked us out of the van and made us walk! Brilliant! It was, truly, as we walked iconic path's from Mrs MacQueries Chair, the coastal path from Bondi Beach, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and then from the Spit up towards Manly Beach. All of these walks got us to really look and remember, and every gorgeous site in Sydney is one to treasure. And thanks to Peter Bailey and having our friends join, all of these memories and learnings were also a lot of FUN! I highly recommend. There is a reason Peter is rated 5-star by many.

Effortless and informative
Hands down the best prepared, informative, knowledgable guide I have ever met. Sydney tour was effortless. Explanations, jokes, sarcasm at times, ease of communication and, above all, data books about australia’s global place prepared meticulously made this memorable and one of a kind experience.
Highly recommended.

Nov 2019
We went out with Peter immediately after arriving at our hotel! It was a wonderful 1/2 day. He took us all around, explained the neighborhoods and put everything in context with Sydney history. One thing I especially liked was Peter dropping us off at the beginning of a short walk and picking us up at a designated point. Allowed a little "at your own pace" touring. Nice touch. He was going to drop us off at Manly beach (must see), give us ferry tickets and allow us to take the ferry back ourselves. We were too wiped, so he gave us the ferry tickets and dropped us at the hotel. We went on our own the next day.

Great that you enjoyed the "at your own pace" aspect, and that you returned to Manly - it's a lovely part of Sydney. Many thanks for your review

Peter was an incredible guide and did a fantastic job of getting us acquainted with Sydney. We had a wonderful time exploring the different neighbourhoods, enjoyed the food, and lived for the beaches! Definitely recommend his services to anyone!

Great overview of Sydney; Great flexibility!
Sep 2019
I am so glad I found Peter on TripAdvisor! He picked up my family (myself, my husband and our mothers) at the airport with all of our luggage in tow. We had a great and intimate experience with Australian animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park. We had a spectacular hike around Bondi Beach where the views are breath taking. We had great views of Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. My husband loves birds and we stopped at a park where he could feed wild cockatoos! While I regret not taking the ferry from Manly back to the Rocks, we were a bit tried from our flight and were happy to be taken back to our hotel. Even my hard to please mother, thought Peter was a great find.

Very knowledgable and helpful guide
Oct 2018
Peter was a very knowledgable and helpful guide, we could not have chosen better.
I have mobility issues for which Peter made every allowance and he managed to get us to the best places to take photos and take in the scenery.

His knowledge of Sydney and its history was almost encyclopaedic, a thoroughly enjoyable morning.

(Sorry it's almost a year since our tour, still catching up!)

Family tour with Peter Bailey
We spent two days on tour with Peter at the end of July and had the most wonderful experience. Peter took us on the Sydney Key Attractions and the Blue Mountains tours. Peter was very flexible and catered to our every need. He even offered to swing back to our hotel to pick up my in laws who arrived two days later than schedule. Peter was very knowledgeable about Sydney and Australia in general and my family was very happy with his service. We will recommend Bailey’s tour without hesitation.
