What You Can Expect

Small-Group Sydney City Tour with Luxury Sydney Harbour Cruise

Cruise like a local on Sydney Harbour

Choose from two options below to treat yourself to the ultimate small-group tour of Sydney. Both full-day tours take you by land (via a luxury mini-coach) and sea (on board an elegant yacht) for glimpses of some of the city's most iconic landmarks. Depending on your preferences, you can opt to spend more time sightseeing around the city or cruising along the water.


Morning Cruise with Afternoon Sydney Tour:
Board your yacht at Circular Quay for a 2-hour morning cruise on Sydney Harbour. Enjoy your choice of coffee, tea or juice served with fresh biscuits as your yacht heads out on the water. Your crew shares the city's history as you cruise past the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. When your boat returns, have 1.5 hours free to purchase lunch (discount voucher provided). Your lunch voucher is valid at three local favorites: Caminetto, Waterfront, or Baroque Pantry all located around Circular Quay and The Rocks. At the appointed time, meet your mini-coach at the Sydney Marriott Hotel, an easy 4-minute walk from the yacht dock.

Relax on board the deluxe mini-coach for the 3.5-hour afternoon city tour, listening to your expert guide’s commentary on the highlights of Sydney, starting with the historic district known as The Rocks. Drive into the Royal Botanic Gardens to see Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, a handsome hand-carved stone bench overlooking Sydney Harbour. Then visit popular Bondi Beach and travel through bustling Paddington's shopping streets and the ritzy eastern suburbs before returning to central Sydney, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Morning Tour of Sydney with Lunch Cruise:
After morning pickup from your hotel, travel with your small group aboard your mini-coach to take in the highlights of beautiful Sydney on a fascinating 3.5-hour city tour (sights as above), ending at Circular Quay where you embark on your afternoon lunch cruise.

On board your luxurious yacht, enjoy an exclusive 4-hour sailing excursion on Sydney Harbour with your small group companions. As you're soaking up the scenery, your hosts prepare an Australian barbecue lunch (sample menu below) accompanied by local wine and beer. After a delicious lunch, laze around on the sundeck, cast a fishing line into the water, or chat with the captain on the bridge. With four hours available, you can visit secluded beaches for a swim or to paddle around in kayaks. And if you want to simply relax, lounge in deck chairs to watch the passing scenery. Your crew keeps you informed of the places you see, including waterside mansions that belong to celebrities and other luminaries. Your yachting experience gives you an amazing opportunity to navigate one of the best harbors in the world in comfort and style.
