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.

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.

We did both tours I one day and it was a day well spent. Excellent guides and great service. We particularly liked the fact that we were on a small boat for the cruise and a van for the city tour.
Beautiful boat, beautiful trip! Tracy was an excellent 1st Mate to the captain! She gave an excellent running commentary while the captain took us close to homes, waterfront areas and inlets - so much better than the big multi-deck ferries!! If we return, we will do the tour again! The trip exceeded my expectations.
Had a wonderful tour of the city highlights then a marvelous harbor cruise. The staff prepared an excellent barbecue lunch. Very enjoyable day!
