Walking is a wonderful way to see Sydney and one of the most popular tours is the Rocks Sydney tour. The Rocks area of the city was the site of the first British settlement and today it has various reminders of Australia’s colonial past. 19th century houses, cobbled streets and alleyways can all be explored here, including some of the city’s oldest streets. The area is also home to plenty of bars, restaurants and unique shops and it also offers wonderful views over the harbor, the famous bridge and the opera house. You can choose from several different themed tours, focusing on area history, ghosts or historic pubs. Tours typically last a couple of hours and of course, you should bring a comfortable pair of walking shoes. For a fascinating insight into Sydney’s history, a guided tour of the Rocks area is highly recommended.
