Private Hunter Valley Tours

Scott Ricketts is a professional Sydney tour guide and owner of Your Sydney Guide. He is passionate about giving visitors to Sydney and those resident there the adventure of finding hidden secrets in the New South Wales region. He has had a passion for travelling as long as he can remember and his adventures has seen him journey through the UK, Europe, North America, The Pacific and many parts of Asia, including guiding several snow tours into the deep powder of Hokkaido, Japan.

He also loves exploring my own backyard and believes there is nothing better than the delights of The Hunter Region, commonly called The Hunter Valley. It is one of the largest river valleys on the NSW coast and located 120km north of Sydney. This close proximity to the Sydney CBD makes it one of the easier day trips from Sydney that Your Sydney Guide offer.  A short drive time and allows a full day of relaxing amongst the delights of the region.
