Read what other have to say about their Greeter experience.

We enjoyed the Greet very much. Karen has shown us an very beautiful area of Sydney, which we havn't visited by ourself, because this part of Sydney is not listed in an travelguide. It has been a beautful and interesting tour with many informations about living in Sydney and NSW. She has contacted us before our trip to Australia have started to arrange the tour. We got a lot of helpful informations for staying in Sydney. Thank you very much.

As we lived in Sydney some time ago and did not wish to do 'touristy' things, Graham provided us with a very suitable agenda for the day, taking in the islands in Sydney Harbour and walking around Balmain. His knowledge and insights on history, social and military matters were very useful and appropriate. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to friends. Apologies for the delay in providing this feedback. Ann B

The whole process of working with Sydney greeters was easy. Lyn contacted us before we even landed with helpful suggestions. When we met, she could not have been more friendly, helpful or knowledgeable. This was a great experience. We would recommend it for single travelers or family travelers. Sydney greeters are a great reflection on a friendly beautiful city!

Joanne was brilliant! We saw and learned so many more things not possible when one is a stranger to a city. We loved Sydney and Joanne made it so much more enjoyable. Cheers, Sandi and Dave Wood

Our Greeter Brian was fabulous. We spent the day walking all over Sydney and seeing sights we would never have seen in our own. Brian was very knowledgeable with lots of interesting fun facts. He had a wonderful sense of humor and everyone in the group enjoyed spending time with him. Thanks for making our time in Sydney very special. Many thanks. The Rollers and the Milton’s

Hello, We have had the most fantastic experience of Sydney with Andrea Pulati. My husband, my son and I spent 4 hours on the splendid and well-known places of Sydney as well as in the little unknown and charming places. She was telling us great stories and giving us many tips for an even better stay in Sydney. We have met a great person so dynamic and joyful and will never forget those moments with her.

We had a wonderful Greet with Nick! He was very friendly, knowledgeable about Sydney, and we really enjoyed spending the afternoon with him. Our Greet was an excellent welcome to Sydney - thank you so much!

Our Greeter was Brian Bowman. He was fantastic! Very personable, knowledgeable, and very proud of his city. He knew our interests and had a good plan in mind. He answered all our questions - and if he didn't know - he said so. He didn't try to snow us. We would recommend this program to anyone - and have - and would suggest our friends ask for Brian if he is available. We were more than happy and thoroughly enjoyed our time in your beautiful city.

Ros was so very friendly and kind, despite the scorching sun!! My husband and I enjoyed the walk enormously. We loved the tour of the downtown, the Rocks and the marketplace. But above all getting to talk with Ros and finding that we had so much in common!! Both of us teachers and avid readers.Thank you Greeters for the great idea of bringing tourists and local residents together to get a different type of cultural experience.

Starting from our e-mails, Graham was respectful and cared about my input. I appreciated that he accomm. my family with limited/no English understanding by allowing me to translate. The tour was unique and could not have been found through any other means. The part I would change is the length. When we said we were tired, he wanted to show us the last part saying it would take 15 mins but it ended up being an add. hour. When we asked for the tour to end, though, he accepted and ended politely.
