Rave Reviews

"The fascinating Crimes & Passions Walking Tour gleefully retold grisly tales like the 1920s feud between gangsters Kate Leigh and Tilly Devine, the day in 1954 when a Miss Australia entrant shot her boyfriend through the eye for having an affair, and the 1975 murder of journalist Juanita Nielsen. It revealed the stories behind the area's landmarks. I emerged from the tour feeling strangely fonder of the area." -Sydney Morning Herald

"Sydney's Crimes & Passions Walking Tour proves some true stories are definitely stranger than fiction. The guided tour of Kings Cross reveals hidden gems historical, architectural and cultural. Oh, and plenty of scandal besides." -Great Walks Magazine

"We never knew the streets of the cross were so tainted, we were absolutely enthralled! We enjoyed every minute of the Kings Cross tour, and didn't want it to come to an end. Murders, disappearances, stabbings, gore, blood, mystery, all divulged on this intriguing tour. A fantastic tour with captivating guides and captivating histories, a must for any sydneysider and/or visitor alike! We're looking forward to the next one! -K. Young

"We both thoroughly enjoyed the Kings Cross tour, we couldn't stop talking about it over dinner! We look forward to sending clients your way!" -P. Wynyard
