I can’t recommend this tour highly enough. Elliot held a captive audience for three hours with his knowledge of Surry Hills history. I’ve lived in the area for more than 20 years and heard stories and discovered streets that I never knew existed. Would totally do this tour again. Outstanding.

I really enjoyed it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for something unique and special to do in Sydney.

Elliot is a natural presenter that has passion for this subject. I found it extremely entertaining informative and fun. I cant believe how little I knew about this fascinating area and the treasures it holds. Great way to get my steps up on day off. Recommend this tour to anyone looking for a different view of our colouful past and architecture.

I went on this tour today and found it to be absolutely excellent. Elliot is very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. I grew up in Sydney and know a little of its history but this information was largely new to me. The amount of walking was just right. (About 4kms at a reasonable pace). I highly recommend this tour. .

I went on the tour with a group of family and friends on NYD. It was a great tour, very interesting information on the "underbelly" of Sydney in years past which was developed over the tour. Elliot has a good grasp of the local history; but more importantly he is a great story teller. He was very energetic and entertaining. It was a pretty hot day when we went and there is there is a lot of walking - wear comfortable shoes and take water.

A fun way to explore Sydney and learn some interesting facts about history at the same time. Elliot is entertaining and provides an e-book with lots of original photos and reports. Highly recommend!
