He prides himself on his personal attention and making sure that every guest leaves with a smile on their face and a desire to come back. Matt has visited nearly 60 countries and ventured to all 7 continents. While he loves to travel it’s the Harbour City that always calls him home.

When Matt isn’t guiding he spend his free time surfing, exploring food and culture, playing guitar and attending any live sport event that he possibly can. His positivity makes him the kind of guy that everybody loves to be around.

benjamin driver half day city tour architect architecture


A Sydney boy, born and bred – Benjamin has always had a connection to both the natural and man-made world – textures, leaves, stones, trees, as well as creatures. He is an avid gardener and quite often finds himself at home outside collecting, observing and absorbing how things function.

Although he has a Masters degree in Architecture, he’s ultimately an ‘urbanist’ – having a keen interest in how cities grow, function and provide for us all. From the macro set-out and alignments of city structure to the quality and pattern of the paving on a footpath, he’s obsessed with it all.

Ben lives in Surry Hills and lives and breathes the lifestyle. He’s charismatic, charming and insanely intelligent.

What our clients say

“What a wonderful morning we had with Benjamin. An extraordinary young man with a wealth of knowledge to share all about Sydney, and all its SPLENDOURS. My friend also got along with Benjamin like a house fire. Together, their combined knowledge of Sydney architecture is one fabulous explosion of information for this utter novice. Thank you so much!”
