A range of day tours crafted by nature lovers and photographers that visit the best places to see in Sydney








WOW, what a great day trip!!!! Our guide Terry was such a wealth of knowledge of all the areas he took us to. Also, since we had a private tour he was willing to alter the trip route based on conversation at the early part of the trip.

The BBQ he brought for lunch was homemade and delicious!! Terry was also very willing and excited to share his tremendous knowledge of photography.

What a great plus to the tour since there where so many photo ops on it. Would highly recommend his tours!!!

For most bus tours the operators will use a large coach or bus which typically seat 50 or more people. Their itineraries are restricted due to the group and vehicle size. Your guide has little one-2-one with guests. What many visitors travelling in Sydney don’t realise is that you can lose 20-30 minutes just waiting for people to get on and off a bus tour.


A private or semi-private day tour with Picture Me has a maximum of 8 people using a regular vehicle that has executive level luxury appointments. Not only are we able to visit more places but time isn’t wasted while people get back to their seats. Rather than feeling like sheep being pushed around it’s like travelling with friends in luxury.

Is a day tour the same as a photography course?

No, we give people the choice of relaxing day tours or photography courses. While some of the locations are similar, the inclusions for each activity are different. Our day tours are casual, fun days out where you enjoy the sights of Sydney and its surrounds. Our photography courses are more intensive and aimed at helping people take incredible photos by learning how to use their smartphone or DSLR properly.
