Hop-On Hop-Off Sydney Harbor Cruise:
The harbor cruise departs from either Darling Harbour or Circular Quay and offers you a scenic way to enjoy Sydney Harbour and hop off at any of the eight stops. Listen to informative onboard commentary during the cruise and hop off to explore Taronga Zoo, Shark Island, Luna Park, Fort Denison, Manly and more. The entire harbor cruise route takes up to 1.5 hours and boats depart every 45 minutes.
Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour:
The open-top, double-decker bus makes 35 stops throughout Sydney and famous Bondi Beach, with the full loop lasting about 1.5 hours. Buses run every 15-20 minutes, with the option to include a round-trip ferry from Circular Quay to Manly, which is celebrated for its beaches and proximity to Sydney Harbour National Park.
In central Sydney, pass by the iconic Sydney Opera House, admire the extensive Royal Botanic Gardens and Hyde Park, see the seat of government at Parliament House and delve into art and culture at the Australian Museum. Further afield, watch the surfers catch waves at Bondi Beach and perhaps enjoy some fresh seafood at one of the local restaurants.

Great way to see the city when you first arrive.
great did hop on hop off cruise and bus - highly reccommended
This was our first visit to Sydney and what a memorable time we had. Hop-On Hop-Off Harbor Cruise and City bus tour were great. We saw so much and the weather was perfect. Thank you.
Excellent way to go about Sydney when you have limited time. Gets you to all the important places you have to see :
Well worth the money, but would be better to spread over 2 days........
A great way to get a feel for the city and then choosing where you want to go and explore.
The hop on hop off cruise was the perfect thing to do when you are strapped for time but want to see as much as you can!!! It was informative and fun! Robin Seattle, Washington USA
