A wonderful exerience with our guide Andrew Smith. He knew his way around Sydney and gave us enough history to make it interesting,but not boring. He told us about what life is like living in Sydney and knew the best places to stop. He also knew the location of all the bathroom stops. Very interesting and very caring. Worth asking... More

We organized a private tour to Hunter Valley. Runaway Tours did a fantastic job and we had a great time in Hunter Valley. They customized things for us and our tour guide, Jim, was a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend them.

Michael was able to provide commentaries in both Mandarin and Cantonese and that was very much appreciated by my parents and mum-in-law who are mostly conversant in these languages. He was also...

Steve was a great tour guide- patient, interesting and easygoing. We are a family of 7 including 2 young children one of whom had to go to the doctor during the tour. Steve took it all in stride and taught us how throw a boomerang while we waited. Then we went on to a fun tour of the blue mountains.... More

What a great day. Having done the Hunter a couple of times we wanted a change and found the Southern Highlands on Runaway's site. Communication from them was simply 1st class from the outset, changing the booked day for us with no problem to allow us to fit in a night at the Opera House. We were picked up at... More
