Our Sydney/Canberra tour is one of our most popular tours, and it’s no mystery why. Sydney and Canberra are both destinations not to be missed during a visit to Australia. As Australia’s capital and largest inland city, Canberra is home to the diplomatic embassies, the Parliament House and Australian Memorial. Moreover, as the most populous city in Australia and Oceania, Sydney is a must see for all, local and international guests alike.
