Excellent value for money
We took the morning cruise and found it to be an excellent way to explore Sydney. We had wonderful views of the opera house, bridge, and parks. The 'coffee' included a choice of tea as well plus a box of pastries. Our guide - Elizabeth - was knowledgable and informative. As we were leaving the boat at the conclusion of the tour, I could smell lunch being prepared. I half wished we had opted for the lunch or dinner cruise as well because the morning cruise was so enjoyable.
