excellent except the weather.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Best trip experience I've ever had. The trip was well organized. I like the driver/commentator, Tony, sharing his own stories in addition to the history of the scenic spots. Before I was worried I might look a bit awkward by travelling alone, but it turned out to be just fine. Next time when I get holiday, I would like to join this local tour operator again.

Very well planned and everything was perfect. Our guides Glenn and Joe were great for our city tour. Michael was our guide for the Blue Mountain tour and it was outstanding.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed both days on this tour. The buffet lunch on the harbour cruise was amazing. Lots of choice and plenty of food - enough for seconds. Steve our guide was very informative and kept us entertained with funny stories. Would have liked more time at the Featherdale Wildlife Park especially if you wanted to have a photo taken with a Kuala as the queues were very long. So you had to choose whether to queue or look around the rest of the park and animals.

We had a fantastic two days. The value for money was brilliant. The City tour was very informative and the guide was excellent. The cruise was fabulous the food, service on board and the views of Harbour Bridge and Opera house fantastic.
Unfortunately we didn't see the Blue Mountains due to rain but being British, rain does not stop us from having fun. We really enjoyed the Wild Life Zoo, we could have stayed longer.
The Viator team where excellent. Professional, helpful and friendly. We would like to thank you for making our stay in Sydney so memorable,
