I did bridge climbing with two of my friends. We all enjoyed it. It took around 3 and half hours overall. And we enjoyed every seconds of it. Our guide Alex was very enthusiastic and funny. He did great job. The view from top was amazing. Loved it. Thanks guys . And sorry for late review.

I really enjoyed this tour. I have a small fear of heights but wasn't terrified. You spend an hour or so outside on the bridge, which is ample time. Our guide was knowledgeable and kept it interesting. I'd recommend this to anyone!

The bridge climb was amazing I did a night time climband the view was amazing. The climb guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the bridge and surrounding look out areas. He was funny and made the climb a very relaxing and memorable adventure. If you're going to Sydney do the climb.

That was an amazing and fantastic experience for me to celebrate my birthday! All the staff and guides are very friendly, knowledgable and experienced. I felt safe and secure at all times and there was no fear of heights.Recommed the " Twilight Bridge Climb",u can see the Day and Night view on top of the bridge.

MUST DO WHILE IN SYDNEY!! Well worth every cent!! Bret was our tour guide and I must say he was THE BEST!! The person I went and did this with is extremely scared of heights. Bret did all he could do to make sure he calmed his nerves to make sure he had a good time. TWO THUMBS UP TO BRET!!
As far as the price, I thought it was reasonable. It included the use of all equipment. One photo of the group while on top of the bridge. The baseball cap they give you to wear plus any additional hats you want to take home. And, free admission to the Pylon Towers.
As far as the climb itself, there are two parts that are scary. The first and last leg to get up to the actual bridge. The stairs were like at a 90 degree angle. That's quite a steep climb! I'm not scared of heights, but man, there were times I got scared!! Once on the bridge, it wasn't bad at all. Incline was small with railings to protect you. The views of the city were amazing!! Even though I did the 3 o'clock tour, I could only imagine what it would have looked like taking the twlight or night tour!! Once you're on top of the bridge, take advantage of the 8 second video clip they offer to take of you!! IT'S FREE AT THE END. They give you link to have it sent to your e-mail address. As mentioned before, they give you a free small photo of the group with a cardboard frame. Purchasing additional photos are quite costly. I think it was like $75 for three photos. So, take advantage of that video clip!!!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO DO AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFE!!!

Great walk (stroll really) up bridge. Would recommend although a bit pricey - but the what isn't expensive for a Pom in Oz? Views from top of circular quay and opera house are breathtaking. Go on, you know you want to climb the bridge and why not, you won't regret it.

We did the sunset climb and we picked an evening when the full moon was rising in the east at almost precisely the same time as the sun was setting in the west. We felt as if we poised between two celestial events, with the bridge as the pivot point between sun and moon. The weather was perfect (if it had been raining or overcast the experience would have been much less enjoyable). I was anticipating a physically more challenging climb but it was quite easy (I’m 64 years old). The company runs a very well organized program which I found informative, very safety-conscious, and great fun, as well as beautifully scenic. Our tour guide, Adrian, was great — knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this activity to friends. It was a high point -- literally and figuratively -- of our week in Sydney.

Excellent climb, excellent guide. We got to see a huge cruise ship leaving, and a glorious sunset. Highly recommended.

This is a "must do" while in Sydney. Recommend the sunset climbs, you get to see the city views change before your eyes! This is a very well run attraction and an impressive number of people climb the bridge every day. You have to change into a provided jumpsuit and wear clothes toed shoes - and no drinking alcohol before the climb, you are breathalyzed. Safety first! This was an amazing experience!

Excellent in every way:
Preparations / briefing was extremely thorough;
Tour guide (Billy) was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and safety conscious;
Plenty stops for photos (by guide) but grossly overpriced to buy afterwards.

Fantastic! However, had to change time because of schedule conflict. Would have been nice to get refund for difference in price.

We loved the climb and the experience, the staff took us through all the health and safety rules, we were even breathalised to make sure we had no alcohol in us. It took three and a half hours and even though we are in our mid sixties we managed it just a little out of breath nearing the top of the bridge but well worth it, you use about 600calcs doing it as well, good for dieters. We did the twilight tour you go up in daylight and come back down in the dark, so you can see Sydney at night is fantastic. Do not miss this when you go to Sydney, it was one off our best bits as well as the opera house.
