I'm not a fast runner, will I get left behind?

We are all about exploring Melbourne and Sydney at a leisurely pace! Our tours run at your pace, and there are plenty of stops so we can share stories, take photos and sometimes stop for water. We've had guests who have never run before, some who are more into gym work than running, we've also had guests that just want to walk, and that's fine with us too!

What will I actually see?

You'll see a lot, and learn a lot about Melbourne and Sydney! Each tour is structured differently for a different theme or vibe, but one thing they all have in common is that they are jam-packed with sights to see and stories to share! You probably won't see a kangaroo on our tours, but stranger things have happened!

Can I have a private tour?

Of course you can! Each tour can be upgraded to a private tour in the booking process.

Alternatively check out the Private Tours on offer on each city page of our website. Private Tours are priced higher to factor in the requirements of your group, the planning time including working with suppliers to organise your tour, as well as any transport, logistics and tour guides that are required to make your experience one to remember!
