"Amazing experience, highly recommended" January 9, 2023 - A Tripadvisor Traveler Read 241 reviews of The Rocks Dreaming Aboriginal Heritage Tour

This is an incredible way to see Sydney from a totally different perspective, and understand that aboriginal culture (for all the complexity and diversity encompassed in that phrase) is alive and well - and something we can all learn from. This tour should be compulsory for everyone visiting the city

Jon A. London, England, United Kingdom

We really enjoyed Margret's Dreamtime Aboriginal Tour, and the opportunity to understand the rich history and culture of Australia's indigenous people. Would recommend the tour to others because you gain a better appreciation of a place that you visit, when you understand its beginnings.

Derick & Jackie San Francisco, CA, USA

It's a different culture with a completely different set of beliefs and it was fascinating learning about it. Margret our guide was lovely and very charismatic.

Lina Tel Aviv, Israel

Thank you to Aunty Margret, Faith and Joanna for a marvellous day sharing their knowledge and engaging our Year 3 students with their stories.

Kirsten M. Five Dock, NSW

I learned so much on this enjoyable tour, animated by our warm and friendly guide James. The stories and information that he shared imparted a deeper appreciation for aboriginal history and culture. The 90 minutes flew by and the tour really opened up my eyes. I feel greatly enriched by this experience and also appreciate the fact that this tour is aboriginally owned and operated.Thank you so much!

Cheryl Montreal, Canada

I brought down some girls from my new cultural group at my school. We learned so much about identity and our connection to the land that I had no idea about. Aunt Margret was an amazing guide. Her knowledge and passion was addictive, we couldn't help but be completely enthralled for the entire 90mins. Looking forward to the next visit.
