We were limited to only 3 days in Sydney prior to boarding a cruise ship. This was the greatest way to see as much of Sydney, on land and sea, within a short period of time! Both the bus and boat stopped at the most important and interesting locations within the city. Whether you have a long or short stay, this is the best and most economical way to start your visit!
