Sydney City Tour Day Trip

Anyone who lives in Sydney knows how amazing it is and how many things there are to do. The heart of Sydney itself is a lively place with many festivals and events and attractions to see. Outside the heart of Sydney, there are also many places to visit and things to see by a day trip. The great thing about the Sydney area is no matter which way you travel you will find a perfect spot to visit by a day tour. Private day tours are a perfect way to see the sites without having to do the thinking for yourself.

The best part about doing this with a private tour is that you can enjoy as much (or as little) wine as you like and not have to think about how you are going to get home. Day trips can be booked for a couple, small groups or parties. You are driven from your starting location and driven through the different wineries and attractions that the Hunter Valley has to offer.

My favourites picks – taste Vat 01 Semillon, taste a cheese plate from Hunter Cheese co and panoramic views of Brokenback Range.

Blue Mountains Day trip
