Canberra Guided Tours

Cultural and Theme Tours

The team at Canberra Guided Tours are passionate about providing expert guided tours in and around Australia’s National Capital.

When the business first started in 1961, our city was just starting to grow. Canberra was a country town with a small population and no Lake. Original operators, Mary and Jack Dando gave visitors a memorable experience to the Nation’s Capital.

Today, Canberra has grown into a thriving hub, and we’re delighted to showcase the city and the region.

Our team of experienced and professional guides, some multilingual, all with a wealth of knowledge, a love and passion for the city, and full of enthusiasm, will show you the best of Canberra and its surrounds. Museums, government institutions, galleries, wineries, and award winning attractions. It’s your choice.

We have a choice of prearranged tours to suit different tastes and interests. However, if you’re after something a little more tailored, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to see what we can arrange for you and larger groups.
