Meet Jo

Sydney Walking Tours extraordinaire, who has been called a “walking GuideOfTheYear smlencyclopedia” by some, can translate between German and English and make you feel very at home in this amazing city!

G’Day! Hailing from beautiful and history-rich Cologne/Germany, I first set eyes on Sydney’s breathtaking harbour in March 1994. It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! What started as a ‘once in a lifetime adventure’ planned to last 7 months turned into a ‘Neverending Story’. The rest is history, as they say…

After a 20-year detour through accounting, management consulting and uni lecturing jobs I finally embarked on my personal MISSION OF PASSION – guiding tourists and locals alike to those well-known and secret beauty spots Sydney has to offer and enrich their experience with historical facts and little known trivia along the way.

I am a professionally trained guide, holding a Certificate IV in Tourism (Guiding) and am a professional member of the Institute of Australian Tour Guides (IATG) and the Royal Australian Historical Society (RAHS).
