These enjoyable harbour-hugging outings by Exclusive East Tours take you where tour buses don’t, making them a great way to explore Sydney's hidden gems and local treasures.

Meet your friendly local guide at Rose Bay Ferry Wharf then, as one of just 3 guests, enjoy personalised attention as you explore. Walk together to the first of 10 charming beaches, stopping along the way to see beautiful heritage-listed parkland and breathtaking harbour views, including glimpses of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

Before long you’ll feel like a local as you soak up the ambiance of some of Sydney’s oldest and prettiest neighbourhoods. Enjoy a coffee and a swim as your guide shares knowledge about the local nature and Aboriginal history. If you want to delve further into these beautiful places on your own, your guide will be happy to share tips on restaurants, cafes and other things to do.
