Hello & welcome to
My Sydney Detour!

My name is Richard Graham, I am the owner and operator of Sydney's most unique private tour.

Five years ago I set out to create an experience for travellers looking to explore the local side of Sydney. Today my wife Bérangère and I are the market leaders in unique and personal experiences of Sydney.

Our Detours focus on unique aspects of Sydney, mostly known by locals. We also offer entirely custom experiences so you can create an experience just for you!
