Our Detours. Sharing Sydney's untold stories.

In 2008, we launched My Detour with little more than a wild idea and a 1964 vintage Holden. In the business’s early years, we ran the operation from home dividing our time between building a small family and a budding business. Today, we employ the best of the best tour guides/storytellers and travel with you in two handsome vehicles.

For us, My Detour is a real labour of love and we wouldn’t be where we are without the knowledge and generosity of the many guides, community leaders, business owners and Indigenous elders that make our experiences unlike anything else you’ll find this beautiful place we call home.

Bringing an element of creativity and surprise into everything that we do, at the end of a day (or three), we want you to feel as if you have discovered a side of Sydney you never knew existed, like a real Sydney local.
