Very good, but the weather was not to good and we did not have enough time to get off at any of the stops. We only were able to ride around the entire loop one ntime

Sam was a good guide and gave us lots of information on the tour, as well as taking us into Gorse Canyon off road, my first time here. All in all a good tour.

Excellent trip, none the worse for the fact that it rained all day, but that's not Viator's fault. Informative dialogue from the hostess. Would do it again if and when we return.

This is a good way to view the main attractions of Sydney's Harbor. A good bargain as well.

Good to hop on and off at Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House etc. Boats are regular, every 45 minutes.

We got on at Circular Quay at 9:45.First stop was zoo which we bought with our hop on-hop off tickets.they informed us that the sky tram was not in use for the month of March and we had to catch a bus after we got off boat. Leaving zoo we Missed bus to catch the ferry at 3:50. No harbor tour for us.

The tour was very enjoyable. Great way to get around the harbour and see the sights. Enough boats to make it flexible. The only drawback was that some of the commentary was hard to hear or understand, particularly if you sat outside which is lovely on a sunny day. Afternoon guides had good sense of humor.

We booked this before we left home. Unfortunately, we were not able to do this tour due to time constraints on our part. Probably wouldnot book head again because of this.

Variety of tours was nice.

Being the day before NYE, we picked a bad day to do this as it was crazy busy and we did not have enough time to see the zoo and do any more stops. On a quieter day, this would have been a lovely activity. The staff were very nice and the commentary was ok too.

short and sweet circle around the Harbour. starts at Circular Quay, which is basically where the Opera House and Bridge is. It then heads out past Mrs MacQuarries chair (Botanic Gardens), loops around and heads back to the Quay actual time moving is around 40 mins. Is it with doing - probably, however if your on a tight budget you see nothing that you cant see for free from the land. Even the view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House together can be obtained from the Botanic Gardens. One point to note - the Viator app and email state there is no need to print anything off and that you can simply show app or email. Wrong - no one excepted these. we had a frustrating day when we had to go back to our hotel, seek out a printer and print off itinery before heading back to the attraction. Be warned!

Were stuck up at the zoo because of poor service, overcrowded boats, otherwise okay.

I wouldn't call it a cruise per say, it's more of a ferry service. But it is a nice way to get around town and a great opportunity for pictures.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this
