It was very engaging to hear the history behind the building & his stories of some of the characters involved.

I saw & learnt things I didn’t know & I was very impressed with the delivery.

Thank you for an enlightening experience"

"I was so looking forward to seeing the QVB  in all her glory and I was not disappointed.

Her history is truly a story that needs to be told and shared with the rest of the world.

The QVB History Tour must be added to the list of iconic tours we currently have available in Sydney."
