This audio tour was very informative and the description of the various areas was brought to life by first person anecdotes. We would recommend it to others.
The rocks area has so much history, we particularly enjoyed visiting the alleyways and little streets. Had a tasty coffee from the French bakery.
Luckily my wife and I found this tour before we explored the Rocks area, was really interesting hearing about the area otherwise we would have probably missed a lot of things
The audio tour is the best way to experience the old town area! Without the tour, you miss out on learning much of the history and significance of the different spots. It was easy to listen to, and I loved that I could do it at my own pace and was able to linger in my favorites places. We stopped and had lunch halfway at a lovely little french cafe / patisserie (go there!). Would highly recommend it to others visiting The Rocks!
the tour was fantastic! this part of Sydney is so beautiful and full of history! me and my husband are both Aussie and the tour was very interesting to us. recommended to learn about the rocks!
