    Welcome to the Sightseeing Bus Tour of Sydney.

    Our guided bus tour is a logical continuation of our popular free walking tour. It covers areas of Sydney not accessible by walking.

    Don't waste your time exploring Sydney on your own. You will miss a lot. Sydney has so much more to offer than just the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. We have many amazing places worth visiting, and the best places are hidden from tourists.

    First we will stop at Mrs. Macquarie's Point to take postcard-perfect picture of Sydney. Then we will explore the most beautiful sights in Sydney - our amazing eastern suburbs with spectacular views around every corner.

    You will see places locals love, but tourists have no idea about - the best beaches, lookouts, parks, ocean cliffs and the hidden gems of Sydney.

    There will be many stops and photo opportunities along the way. The final stop of the tour will be at famous Bondi Beach. You can stay there and enjoy the beach or come back to the city with us.

    Within three hours you will discover places you would need a few days to visit using public transport.

    Don't waste your time and come exploring with us.

    Sighseeing bus tour is organized by "Free Tours Sydney". We charge you only the bus running cost. Our tour guides are not paid for their work. That is why we ask for a voluntary contribution at the end of the tour.

    We leave it up to you to decide what their work is worth.

    Q & A:

    "I was told by the driver of the "Big red Bus tours" that you do not operate anymore. Is this true?"

    They are a competing company that charges 3-times more than us. They will say anything to sell their tours. Our tours are on every day at 10.30am*.

    "Do you have enough places for everyone?"

    Usually we can accommodate everyone. But sometimes during peak season few people may miss out. In this case, we will offer them guaranteed places on any next tour of their choice.

    "We are a group of 15 can we join your tour?"

    Groups of 8 or more are required to contact us in advance. We may organize a private tour for your group.

    Great tour of Sydney and the Eastern beaches and sights. Martin gives a good humorous commentary and history of the feature stops, 5 Stars all round.

    "Must do when first in Sydney - Bus Tour With Martin"

    Tripadvisor 21 May 2018, Sa S.

    3 hours of bus tour for $18 plus tips! You can’t beat that! We loved our tour guide Martin’s Australian accents!
    We found out about the free tours from our Resort’s map. Not knowing where about to join the tour was a challenge for new comers like us from US, but, once you found it, it was great experience all around. The tour only cost $18 to get on and you should give your tour guide gratuity because that’s the only source of income he/she gets. The tour covered over 25 places and points of interests in the Sydney area. We have many opportunities to take pictures or walk about. Pay attention to your guide because you will get lots of tip and information. Take note of the places that interests you, then, planned your itineraries accordingly for the rest of your vacation!

    "Bus tour-A must do"

    Tripadvisor 21 May 2018, Maggie C.

    Fantastic bus tour. Martin our driver & tour guide was not only knowledgeable & informative he has a great sense of humour. He makes it fun & had us all laughing heaps with his little jokes. His knowledge of the Sydney area & its history is amazing.
    You go to many great sites that you probably wouldn’t see unless you did a tour, and at $18 + a well deserved voluntary donation it is a BARGAIN.
    I highly recommend this tour. A great introduction to Sydney.
    Thanks Martin.

    "Sydney bus tour"

    Tripadvisor 19 May 2018, NT1997.

    At $18 per head this is one of the most value for money option. The guide is great, witty and helpful. The bus is very comfortable. A good way to look at Sydney periphery and Bondi beach. You are expected to leave a tip at the end of the trip depending on how you value the service. Given that other services are expensive, this was reasonably pricing priced. Would recommend.

    Excellent - well worth the $18 each that we paid. Got to see loads. Daughter especially enjoyed the paddle in the sea on Bondi Beach. Fab driver/guide Martin - he made the tour fun too. Would definitely recommend to others.

    "The most affordable best tour in Sydney"

    Tripadvisor 11 May 2018, Shelley4129.

    We were met in the park right on time. The tour was a bargain, and quite informative, the best part was Martin, very well informed and a great sense of humor! We plan to take the free walking tour in a few days. The bus was comfortable, much nicer than the overpriced hop on off busses.

    Wow! Sydney 'turned on' a glorious sunny day (17/5/15) for me and my girls! (87yr. & 82yr.). What an absolute treat we were in for and we owe it all to the fine, fabulous and funny Martin. Firstly sincere appreciation for your assistance with the girls and taking care of our luggage. The tour and Martin's commentary was the best, so informative and entertaining! I've done a tour or two in my time but nothing compares to this one. We were viewing, listening, learning and best of all having a good old laugh! Sydney is just beautiful and someday I will return. Thank you Martin for making it a fun and memorable time and for your kindness towards me and my girls. The very best of all to you!

    Was a little dubious beforehand as $17 seemed so cheap, but how wrong I was! Totally worth it, to explore places both in and out of the city centre, with Martin as an informative, witty and personable guide - much better than the pre-recorded tapes! Good to see outside the centre of the city to give you ideas of places you may want to revisit and there were plenty of photo opportunities. Martin was extremely helpful and kind as I was using a crutch on the trip. You need to support this venture if you visit Sydney!
