"Delightful. My wife and I took the Crimes and Passions tour and found it entertaining, enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable. Our guide, Kathryn, was very knowledgeable and also very entertaining. Her series of stories and vignettes really brought the history of this fascinating area to life. Very highly recommended. Don’t miss it!!"

"A must do tour!!
We had Kathryn as our guide and loved it and so would recommended this tour. Kathryn was able to adapt the tour for us (our son was a tag along) and she kept us interested, intrigued and relevant to what we liked (as she chatted with us to get to know what we wanted). We learnt so much about cross and the old stories. We were lucky that our family was the only ones on the group so was a very personal tour. If u can definitely book this tour."

"Sydneys Other Side.
Kathryn took my friends and I on a very intriguing and adventurous walk around Kings Cross to learn about the history and happenings of the area. Kathryn was a true gem of a guide and kept us all enthralled with tid bit information of the area that we didn't know as locals. When guests visit, I'll definitely offer this up as an option to do off the tourist beaten path."

"Fun, educational evening exploring an iconic Sydney neighbourhood.
Myself and 3 friends had the pleasure of having Kathryn show us around Kings Cross recently. It was fantastic. Kathryn was knowledgeable, passionate and brought the many stories and characters to life for us. Her enthusiasm was infective and very much a key to making it such a memorable evening. We all would've gladly gone on for a couple more hours listening to her!"

"Walking Tour with Big John.
I would highly recommend this tour! Kings Cross is an amazing place with a colourful history and is excellent if you have an interest in crime or history. John’s tour was next to none and there is no better way to learn about a place than from a local. I had a great time John and loved having a beer and yarn at the end."
