The tour passes bustling shops, restaurants and attractions set amongst Colonial, Victorian and postmodern architecture.

To complement the Sydney tour, the Bondi Beach tour is a great introduction to Australia's beach culture. On the way to this famous beach the tour passes by cosmopolitan shopping and dining precincts plus Centennial parklands, one of Australia's most picturesque parks.
