Sydney Walking Tour vs Sydney Bus Tour

The Story of Sydney | Sydney City Tour | Food Tours | Ultimately Sydney

If you’ve trawled our website a little, you’ll notice we offer both walking tours of Sydney, and bus tours of Sydney, so obviously we believe there’s merit in both methods of exploring our beautiful home town.

If you’re trying to decide whether a Sydney walking tour or a half day bus tour of Sydney might be better for you, we can help.

In our many of years of experience, we’ve found that selecting the right day tour is paramount to ensuring you have the most enjoyable stay in Sydney, so we hope this helps you to choose the right Sydney tour for you!



  • People who have a reasonable level of fitness – you should be able to stand and walk comfortably at a moderate pace, with only brief periods of sitting, for 3 hours or more.
  • Visitors who have been to Sydney before or visitors who have quite a lot of time (more than 1 week) to explore the city during their stay in Australia.
  • Guests who are keen to offset holiday eating, with holiday exercise!
  • People who are not overly interested in seeing a ‘check-list’ of the most famous sights throughout the city, but are more interested in experiencing what life is like as a Sydneysider.
  • Anybody who gets motion-sickness should definitely choose a walking tour of Sydney over a bus tour of Sydney!


  • Visitors who have only a short amount of time in Sydney, as our premium bus tours allow you to cover much more ground and see many sights in one day.
  • People who have an injury or who’s general level of fitness is insufficient to allow walking and standing for 3 or 4 hours.
  • Guests with younger children who might find all that walking a challenge!  Piggy-backing a large child for 3 hours can be pretty tiring… we speak from experience!
  • Visitors to Sydney who are looking for a stopover or layover tour – i.e. people who are only in Sydney changing planes.
  • People who don’t like using public transport – our walking tours may meet at a train station and it’s understood guests will generally arrive and depart via public transport.


We hope these descriptions help you make your mind up as to whether a walking tour of Sydney, or a bus tour of Sydney would be best for your visit!  Whichever you choose, you’re guaranteed to enjoy yourself in this stunning and sparkling part of the world.
