I would never of seen as much as I did if I had not booked this tour. Other than the Italian people at the back of the bus that had their own tour guide it was fantastic. They were only on the bus for the morning section so glad about that. They had their own ear sets but did not use them. I would recommend doing this tour for the first timers to Sydney.
This tour is an ideal way to spend your first day in Sydney to become acquainted with the various districts. Our driver was an excellent "guide" and had no trouble answering all questions. Recommend doing the lunch cruise - makes a nice break from the bus and the buffet lunch was quite good. Very enjoyable day.
If you want to see all of Sydney and do not have enough time this is the tour , it all day and you see all of Syndney and lunch is a must, the food is good....
The guide/driver was very knowledgeable, had a very keen sense of humor and made the tour very interesting. He even accommodated so that we could end our tour at a time and place to get a taxi to catch our flight at the airport and he even found us a taxi. Keep this guide. I think his name is Darrel. The amount of info and the tone of the tour made all the difference.
Wonderful first day in Sydney seeing Manly in the morning and Bondi and the city in the afternoon with a fabulous lunch time cruise in between. Great overview.
We enjoyed our tour very much, we got to see many interesting sites and our bus driver/guide, Daryl, was very knowledgeable and friendly; we would recommend to any of our friends to take this tour.
From the complimentary pick up at our hotel (make sure to call 24 hours in advance to check in) to the morning tour through Sydney to the afternoon tour to the beaches, this tour and guide was outstanding. Time is given at each stop for taking pictures, walking around and also listening to the tour guide as he pointed out interesting facts about the area. At no time were we rushed or pushed to walk fast through the many wonderful stops and the guide made sure to keep each tourist informed and accounted for.
Great and knowledgeable guide. We saw everything and more than we expected.
Loved learning the history behind such a amazing city. Your guide was fantastic. Well worth doing!
the tour was very good and the driver full of information really enjoyed the whole day;
Really good tour! Recommend to everyone. The driver is really nice and good time and place organising.
Trip from start to finish was very good. Informative and enough time given in each stop off point. Glad we chose not to do the extra cruise lunch as we enjoyed time spent exploring Manly a little more-gorgeous place, even better than its famous counter part Bondi Beach. Stunning scenery in parts. Driver was the commentator which was great, had enough time on each stop, he even asked where we would like dropping off afterwards too. Felt really personalised the whole trip, got enough information about Sydney, surrounds and also view of the city too. Well worth it. Pick up and drop off poins very clear at all times. Thoroughly enjoyed the day out, even the children had no complaints.
Our driver was Leigh and he is very nice and kept everyone entertained with hiscool attitude and good sense of humor. He had lots of information about the places we went to see. The tour was well worth it and a must do for first time visitors in Sydney. The lunch cruise was great too! I must say the cruise was one of my favorite part of this tour.
bus driver great very good infomation about sydney would use again
Knowledgeable tour guide made the trip very interesting. Cruise is a worthwhile way to see Sydney harbor
Great day out but was marred by a mini cyclone - chucked it down with rain the entire day! Not the fault of the tour organiser though!!
Great tour of the city. Get to see a lot and get a great introduction to city.
Must do the whole day tour because the afternoon part was the best. Cruise was a nice interlude and food was good.
Great tour for first timers in Sydney. Had problems with viatours instructions as the bus did not pick us up near our hotel. Had to take a cab to bus. Also the contact number for tour check in was wrong and spent 20 minutes on phone at $1/minute!
