Only thing was we were not sure about the routing of the cruise and how often it the cruises would be and which direction/stops the boats were going to, to plan a more efficient hop on/hop off schedule for the family.
Good activity - didn't start using the ferry until mid-afternoon which was our mistake!
Good way to see Sydney Harbor and neighborhoods. Crew was helpful and caring.
The Sydney Harbor Hop On Hop Off Cruise was very good. I would highly recommend that you take the boat around the first time so you don't get caught with boat schedules that narrow down your choices in the afternoon. Since one of the stops is the Taronga Zoo, it's easy to get lost there.
Cruise was great! Our guide, Ross, was very informative and had fun stories about all of the locations we passed and stopped at. A great way just to get a feel for the bay, and maybe hop off for the zoo, as most of the people did. The one downside was that the route was not clear, and we were hoping to hop off at Manly, but our boat went by it. Apparently that was another ferry that went directly from Circular Quay to Manly Harbour. We were pretty disappointed, as we would have hopped off at Watson's Bay instead. Make sure to get an accurate schedule for the cruises!
In the afternoon, the schedule time is not accurate anymore.
We've got issue with VIATOR reservation system that is not updating the tour company system, so we need to wait for them to confirm it via phone.
A wonderful exerience, you can use your ticket as much as you like but only with this company and then only between the hours of 9.30 and 18:00. even though its sold as a 24 hour ticket, it doesn't mean it operates for 24 hours, but the ticket i valid. Buy it at 09:00 it will end at 18:00, buy it at midday, and it will be ok to use it until midday the following day but only between operating hours.
Their boats come along every 30/45 minutes or so, but you need to check you are getting on the right one, as there are 3 companies who do something similar. Great way to see the Harbour Bridge and Opera house. Plus more.
Great trip around the Harbour, felt like our private boat! Fun staff too!
A great way to see Sydney from an aquatic perspective. Must be one of the best natural harbours in the world! Unfortunately we didn't stop at Fort Denison.
Travelled on this cruise to get to Tooronga Zoo, and then travel across to Watson's Bay. It made it convenient to get to these two locations in one trip, rather than having to use two separate ferries from Circular Quay. It meant we could visit more locations during our stay in Sydney.
Great way to get around the harbor. The schedule is such that you can hop off at several places and spend time looking around. There was commentary during the ride, but it was really difficult to hear so that wasn't the highlight of the tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Hop-on Hop-off cruise - the staff were friendly and helpful and made recommendations as to the best sites to visit and explore. The on-board commentary was informative and easy to understand. Would definitely recommend this cruise.
Great way to see some of the highlights from the harbour. Didn't get the chance to use the hop on and off option due to own time restrictions but would certainly reccommend this trip to others and to hop off at a few of the stops.

This is a great trip for first time visitors to Sydney. After an overnight flight from Dubai this blew the cobwebs away and gave us our bearing for Sydney harbour. Fantastic views of the harbour bridge and the opera house (of course) plus other areas of the harbour we didn't know about - Devonport and Watsons bay (Fish and Chips there are a must!) Remember to apply sunscreen even if it is cloudy.
It is nice to jumping into this cruise. Kids really enjoyed the experience. A free cup ot tea served in the cruise would make the trip more enjoyable.
Didn't take full advantage of this one. Although, I would recommend it. An excellent way to see the harbour. The scenery is awesome for taking pictures. Postcard photos!
Pleasant way to spend a couple of hours and I tokk the Taronga Zoo package also but I found the zoo to be very tired and not worth the time spent there
