I highly recommend this walking tour. Elliot’s vast historical knowledge and entertaining narration really helps you imagine the lifestyle of characters from the past in the streets and hidden laneways across Surry Hills. He was easily able to answer questions from the group on the go. A most entertaining day!

Elliot went far and beyond with this tour. I went to the 3-hours walking tour and It definitely exceeded my expectations.

Awesome tour covering history, architecture and true crime - and a good outdoor walk (very gentle) too. Elliot is also a master storyteller and for the total duration of the tour I literally felt I was in another universe. I was so engrossed I forgot to take photos hence the limited offering! Can't wait for the next tour - with lots of photo-taking 🙂

Highly recommend this 2hr sojourn of Surry Hills precinct for tourists and locals! Learnt so much of Sydney's dark history from Elliot, as he weaved fact and drama into every event. Never reading from a script, Elliot has such a breadth of knowledge on the inner workings of the Surry Hills of old!

Fabulous tour with Elliot today. He was very knowledgeable about the Surry Hills area and the stories that he recounted. I love history and I learnt a lot about this area of Sydney. He very kindly took us a little off the tour route to show us a place of interest that we had mentioned during the tour. We would highly recommend doing this tour. Great value! Thank you Elliot 🙂

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Elliot was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the history and crime of Surry Hills, and that energy kept me engaged the whole way through. Would definitely recommend to others.

Had a great tour with Elliot yesterday. He knows his stuff! Really interesting period of Sydney's history that I had no idea about. A lovely way to spend a Sunday!

The best historic walking tour I have been on, and I have been on many. Elliot very personable, knowledgeable, and interested in what he is talking about. Lots of variety in stories - social, economic and architectural history of area, as well as crime details - I never got bored
