Loved it ! Very nice. We also hit the Vivid lights in the harbor, and 2 of our party climbed the mast to the crows nest like a real pirate ! Super.

this was a wonderful afternoon, the staff on the boat are very accommodating, and it is something that all the family can enjoy together

It was a good look at the harbour and the crew were very informative, but because of the lack of wind we could only go under sail for a short while.

Awesome trip. Great views of the harbor and of the Opera House. Worth the money. The staff could have been friendlier.

An amasing tour. Just slowly ambelling in the harbour. Well organised and run.

My husband and I recently went out on the afternoon cruise on a very windy day, all was going well until the engine died and they had to anchor, crew did a good job and we ended up being out an extra hour and got to see the city light up which was great. Unfortunately we didn't get to sail as the winds weren't right and the light refreshments aren't very good, a bowl of chorizo's and some spinach and cheese pastries, but an enjoyable trip

not exactly as exciting as told in the write up, the kids were not involved as said, you had to be careful where you sat on deck as there was grease in spots but the crew were all lovely

We had a good time on this tour, weather luckily clear, accompanied by cold beer. After reaching the distance, engine stopped and we sail by the wind... nice quiet trip..

We did this cruise during the Xmas / New year holidays.... it was VERY busy..... We were unable to hear the welcome aboard and if any safety instructions where given we missed them! (A concern as a parent with children doing the cruise) The Sydney harbour speaks for itself, the views were fabulos and the sailing ship glides peacefully around the major sights .....

A chance to take pictures of the opera house and Sydney skyline from a different angle. Length of boat ride was about right.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Generally okay if one prefers to be left alone on the cruise. Personally would have preferred if there is some commentary about the habour as we cruise or even some interesting information to digest along the way.

Whilst it was enjoyable, it wasn't something I would recommend. There was little ambiance - tour guide was not the best - limited in her ability to instil enthusiasm and interest. Had done a previous tall ship excursion, where pirates ran the ship and it was much more memorable.
Not worth the money to be honest.

The ship is truly old and the crew is friendly, which is good. But the tour is not informative and not interesting at all. Don't waste your money on it.
