Unique & Private Day Tours in Sydney

About Us

We are not a traditional tour company. Every tour we design is different because we take the time to learn about your interests and create a unique experience just for you.

Where do you want to go, what do you want to experience? We’ve got plenty of inspiring ideas to take you off the beaten tourist path so you can get to know the real Sydney – the Sydney we love. Perhaps you’d like to enjoy a dawn yoga session on Bondi Beach, sample the best produce reserved for the most exclusive restaurants, or taste delicious wine with a local wine maker?

Whether you’re in town for business or pleasure, sun, sand or even snow, Splendour’s philosophy is simple: ordinary is not in our vocabulary. Let us take care of every detail so that you can enjoy Sydney and New South Wales in style and luxury.

Sydney, Australia... THANK YOU! A dream come true, memories and adventure for life! Carly Rea, the best host and travel guide in Sydney!

Shemar Moore

I've travelled all over the world and experienced many tour guides and companies. There is no doubt in my mind that Carly Rea and Splendour Tailored Tours truly stands in a class of its own! Her knowledge, personality, local connections are above and beyond the best!

Alberto Valner & family, Santa Monica

Where do I begin! We have been very lucky to have had Carly organise our family holiday in Australia. We have two teenagers, a baby and a native Australian (my husband), so she had many logistics to deal with (read a fussy baby and quickly bored teenagers) on top of having to make Australia exciting for a native!
