We had a great time with Lyn in Sydney. She was very friendly and well-informed so that we got to learn a lot of things about Australia's and Sydney's history and present times. She had tips for best photo locations as well as restaurants and pubs/bars.

Our greeter, Cheryl is great. She e-mailed us ahead of time to coordinate the time and place of the meeting. She gave us tips on planning our itinerary. On meeting day, she took us to the popular places, and provided history or information. She also helped with other general things, like buying the Opal card, where to exchange the money, taking the ferry etc. Cheryl is knowledgable and friendly, and we enjoyed spending time with her. Many thanks to your organization and Cheryl.

After the disappointment of having my initial Greet cancelled, I'm so glad Alita picked up my request. Big thanks to Mario for taking the trouble to put up my request again too! I had a lovely time with Alita and only wished the walkabout could be longer! Sydney Greeters and the Global Greeter Network is a wonderful organisation and I will be recommending them to my friends and family.

Wonderful day with our greeter! Peter offered us a number of activities to choose from and also invited us to suggest others that might interest us. He was knowledgeable, very personable and accommodating, and exhibited a nice sense of humor. He showed a personal interest in each of us, and we all enjoyed a day of lively conversation as we visited sites in and around Sydney. This was our first experience with the Global Greeter Network, and we're sold --- thank you, Peter!

I had a lovely timewith greeter Andrea, especially since we are both from Darmstadt. Andrea gave me great tips on Sydney, which I could not find in any travelguide, she showed me hidden places in The Rocks, very interesting, we had a lovely walk through her neighbourhood and last but not least I enjoyed the personal contact! That it is why I brought the Greeter idea to Darmstadt last year. Adele

We found our Sydney Greeter excellent. Rhona gave us a really personalised service. She took us on a lovely walk incorporating the big sights and other smaller ones that only a local would know. She was a wealth of knowledge on suggested trips, sights, restaurants and shopping! We could not have asked for a better experience, it was like having a friend that knew exactly what things we would enjoy. Thank you.

This is Thao. I was in Sydney for few days and was so lucky to have Mrs.Lex Lees as my greeter.
