Plus: The Vibe hotel and staff were amazing and EXTREMELY helpful!!. I would strongly recommend them to ANYONE!! The AAT Kings tours were well run with great tour operators. Our itinerary was waiting at the hotel desk with directions for every day. We were picked up and dropped off at hotel. The harbor cruise was beautiful and the food was good. Manly beach was lovely, city sights were interesting. The trip to the Blue Mountains was amazing and so was the wildlife park. Great experience!
Minus: Only three small items 1) The airport shuttle was confusing--where do you meet the driver? We had printed our Viator voucher but it had no directions. We called AATKings and they told us where to go. But then the airport shuttle driver wanted our voucher and we just had one copy. He agreed to take us to hotel and make a copy.
2) We were headed on a cruise. So we just lost the last transfer back to airport. A cruise line drop off option would be nice especially since both terminals are so close. MUCH closer than the airport.
3) Some of the Bondi beach tour was repetitive as we are not beach people. AAT Kings offers lots of tour options--so we wished we could have picked something else to do after the WONDERFUL harbour cruise. Aquarium visit? Opera House tour? We had an amazing time!!
Smooth and ever so easy. The cruise from Circular Quay across the harbour was fantastic. A great way to start your day at Taronga Zoo. Arriving at the zoo meant a short walk to the waiting bus or chair lift to the top main entrance. Enter from the top and meander your way down the zoo as it's on a hill. The zoo itself is fantastic. Built into the side of a hill, the enclosure seem real at times especially the marine area. The best though was the elephant enclosure, up close and personal.
nice harbour cruise, zoo is worth a visit
This was the most fun activity we participated in in Sydney. Seeing the harbor from the water was great and the pace was just right. Lunch on Shark Island was pleasant. Some of us went swimming while there. I would defiantly recommend this for any who visit Sydney.

We enjoyed our tour of the harbor. We had great weather and the view was as well. I booked online and printed the receipt but not the voucher. The ticket agent went out of her way to get the voucher printed so we could go. So, print the "voucher". Thanks again.

It was a very exciting tour with my wife to the Taronga Zoo starting with a morning boat cruise from the Sydney Harbour to the Zoo and taking a ride in the Sky Safari Gondola up the mountain and seeing lot of animals and took beautiful pictures for our life time memory.
Tour itself was great! Great savings and beautiful way to see harbour. My only advice, print out tickets in advance. My confirmation said multiple times I could just show my phone app, not the case! Thank goodness for the helpful staff at captain cook cruises!
I read some place that it wasn't necessary to pay the price for a cruise around Sydney Harbour. That all you had to do was take the ferry from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour. But if you do that you will miss out on so much. This cruise was just outstanding. Polly, who guided us through the cruise, is from the states, so she knows all the things that are different about the area that an Australian wouldn't even think to mention. Of course we saw the opera house and the bridge, but we saw so much more. The beaches; where the millionaires live; and the glorious marinas. We anchored near a beach and had the most delicious lunch. None of us was brave enough to go for a swim, but we could have right off the back of the boat. The (complimentary) wine flowed freely. There were seven of us on the trip. Three couples and me, the loner. It's not a giant tour boat. It's an intimate cabin cruiser, but with plenty of room inside and out, upstairs and down. We certainly got our money's worth. And I now have more pictures of the Sydney Opera House than I do of my own daughter.

Perfect way to view and appreciate the harbour. The live commentary on board is very informative and the boats came on time on all departure points. The highlight of our cruise was the visit to taronga zoo and the ride to sky safari.

The Sydney Pass was a wonderful way to save money and see the sites of downtown Sydney and the surrounding harbor. I definitely recommend it.
We didn't go on the catamaran due to low reservations, but were transferred to the Showboat, which was fun. The food was delicious, service excellent and the harbor at night is magnificent. The show was fun as well. Overall a great night.
Doing what: Sydney Harbour Dinner Cruise by Catamaran
We loved out Cruise around Sydney Harbour it was fantastic being able to experience Sydney from the water. When we got to the Taronga Zoo the sky lift was so much fun the kids loved it and the Zoo was brilliant such an amazing setting awesome views of the Harbour and the animals and the different habitat enclosures were second to non. Our children just loved the whole day and they just loved the kids section and the playground. A fantastic day over all and definitely one we would do again if we went back to Sydney.
