We spent a wonderful time with Brian Bowman, whose knowledge and good sense of humour made the day an unforgettable experience to us. To go with the 'Greeters' is the best thing one can do to get to know a city.

I really enjoyed my time with Lyn. She was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on other things to do in Sydney. She showed me a side of Sydney I probably wouldn’t have gone exploring on my own and her knowledge of the history & current events behind the places were fascinating. I definitely enjoyed our time together. Thank you!

Amazing walk around the city and beaches. Andrea did a fantastic job to show us both inner city highlights, a bit of history and cultural aspects and also the beauty when leaving downtown. It made our trip so much better and we will always keep the time with her as an important aspect of our positive memory of Sydney. A big thank you!!

I am so glad I found out about Greeters! My time in Sydney was definitely enhanced by having Karen to take me around. I would never have visited the Governor's house on my own. Karen emailed me a few times before I came which meant we had the broken the ice when we met. We ended up spending the whole day together and had a very enjoyable time. I will certainly recommend Greeters to my friends and suggest they ask for Karen if they are coming to Sydney!!

I enjoyed the experience with my greeter it was awesome. I got to see parts of Sydney I was not familiar of. Lisa was very friendly and I appreciated the history lesson about Australia. She taught me how to take the train around Sydney. With her help I was able to get around Sydney using the train. I would recommend a greeter to anyone who travels to Sydney. I am truly grateful for my Syndey Greeter experience.

Nick and Liz have been very kind. They walked us around, giving us many hints about what we could visit after they would have gone. They pleased us with interesting stories about places, trees, art. Plus Nick prepared a "artsy surprise" for my kids, so they could paint as the aboriginal people used to, learning about simple signs. Really an awesome afternoon. Thank you!!!
