Just wanted to thank you for a great tour of Canberra. It’s not in the facts and figures. It’s the ebb and flow of your conversation that really provided a sense of quintessential Canberra.”

Canberra Guided Tours is dedicated to memorable tours of the Nation’s Capital

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. At that time, Civic was known by the Sydney and Melbourne buildings; Duntroon, a country area; Albert Hall, The Canberra Hotel (now The Hyatt) and Old Parliament House. These were the main points of interest to see. All were brought together by a bridge that went over the Molonglo River, now Lake Burley Griffin.

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



Thank you very much for giving us such an informative and enjoyable tour of Canberra. My father was delighted to visit the Houses of Parliament at long last. I am sure he will be telling his friends about his experiences. We had an enjoyable evening at the War Memorial. Another positive memory for all of us.

Thank you so much for making my last day in Canberra so interesting and enjoyable. I especially appreciated your helpful suggestions, making the most of my limited time on a family visit. I have always wanted to see Old Parliament House and guide Danielle’s knowledge and enthusiasm made this very special.

Thank you for the tour you gave my grandparents, Rob and Eunice from South Australia. Rob and Eunice thoroughly enjoyed their tour with you and were very complimentary of your service, knowledge and expertise. They had a wonderful time and it was a terrific way to finish their stay with us. Thank you so much.
