Meet the locals that make your tour a fantastic experience!

A guide can make or break your day activity, weekend getaway or holiday. Having a knowledgeable, fun, passionate and experienced person to organise and join your trip is the key to enjoying a great trip. No two groups of travelers are the same and that’s why, drawing from years of experience, our local guides have the unique ability to deliver a product that is tailor made to each and every group.

Our trip organisers have been developing tour itineraries and outdoor activities in and around Sydney for an average of 15 years, and are experts in finding the locations, restaurants and local activities that are likely to provide you with an unforgettable experience. Having hiked the trails, rafted the canyons, partied the hot spots, they really are true area specialists. They are all multi-lingual, creative and entertaining with a passion for sharing their love of the outdoors, people, culture and local food. Let us introduce some of them.

"Just wanted to let you know that our trip with Alexander to the Blue mountains was amazing! The weather didn't quite cooperate the whole time, but that didn't stop us from enjoying our day. Alexander was very informative and a lovely guide! We would definitely recommend him and the tour to anyone coming to Sydney. Thanks very much!)" Susan about her trip to the Blue Mountains.

"Ein perfekt organisierter Tag. Wir waren sehr froh, dass wir uns fuer die Blue Mountains Tours bei Dingo Tours entschieden haben und nicht fuer die Konkurrenz! Schon der erste E-Mail Kontakt mit Jelle Marechal machte einen sehr guten und professionellen Eindruck. Der Eindruck bestätigte sich dann auch auf der Tour. Besser geht’s nicht. Preis-Leistung ist top und der Tag war auf der ganzen Linie gelungen. Da Jelle selbst nicht diese Feuhrung durchfeuhren konnte, empfahl er uns seinen Kollegen Alexander Kreisler. Danke an Alexander, dem besten Guide. Er ist flexibel in seiner Tourenplanung und passt sich seinen Gästen und den Tagesbedingungen an. Alexander informiert mit seiner tollen Art. Außerdem ueberzeugte er durch detailliertes Wissen und hat auf jede Frage ausfuehrlich geantwortet. Mir persoenlich hat am besten die kurze Wanderung durch den Dschungel gefallen. Ist schon eine sehr beeindruckende Natur. Als Tagesausflug unbedingt zu empfehlen. Der Tag begann frueh- 07:30 Uhr, in dem wir durch Alex von unserer Unterkunft abgeholt wurden. Das Highlight fuer uns war Featherdale – ein echtes Juwel von einem Park, sowie ein Halt am Aussichtspunkt mit genuegend Zeit zum genießen aus nächster Nähe, mit einem hervorragenden Blick auf die drei Schwestern. Vielen Dank fuer diesen tollen Tag mit unvergesslichen Momenten. Alex war uns sehr behilflich, bei der Buchung einer Hafenrundfahrt fuer unseren letzten Abend in Sydney. Es war eine wunderschoene Hafenrundfahrt im angenehmen Ambiente. Es war ein wunderbarer Abschluss unserer Reise. Danke nochmals fuer die Fahrt zum Flughafen. Die vier Sachsen. )" Tina V about her trip to the Blue Mountains.

Werner Pfeffer

" I have been a tour guide for over 10 years. I am passionate about the great vistas we have to offer. Starting with beautiful Sydney with its vibrant life style, fantastic harbour and great beaches; the heritage listed and ancient Blue Mountains; the well known wine district of Hunter Valley only a short distance away as well as our South coast and North coast, these are all places he'd love to show you and are worthy of a visit. I am sure you’ll love it!"

Andrew Smith

A former teacher, Andrew has been a full-time tour guide since 2010. He loves his wife and kids, travel, wine and sports (not necessarily in that order). His favourite things to do around Sydney include cruising on the harbour, hiking in the Blue Mountains and a day of wine tasting in the Hunter Valley. But his most favourite spot: Newtown! " The entire King Street is very Sydney and quite bohemian and dirt cheap! Thai, African, Italian, Vietnamese - yiou name it! "
