splendour tailored tours guide paul


After visiting Australia in 1987 Paul promised that one day he would return to the land down under and almost 30 years later (and a career in Sales and Marketing!) he is finally living the dream. His love of all things Australian and, in particular Sydney, is infectious and he has spent the last 8 years relishing his new home city.

Paul loves learning all the amazing stories of new settlers, aboriginal history and the history of the post war immigration from Europe and sharing this knowledge with guests. His tours reflect his love of, and his gratitude to live in, this wonderful city.

When he’s not touring Paul loves bush walking, tennis and (even at his age) gym and pilates – oh and walking Bailey, the most famous Bernese Mountain Dog in Sydney.
