You cannot be in Sydney and not take a lunch cruise - this is such a great way to discover the city, seeing the Opera House from up-close, going under the Sydney Bridge, and deep into Sydney Harbour. The weather was a bit cloudy in the morning but lifted up by the time we left quay, and we enjoyed picture-perfect blue sky and full sunshine. The lunch table was right by the window, allowing awesome views of the Harbour as we sailed. The lunch menu offers different choices, to satisfy everyone's taste. From the starter to the entree, the food was fantastic! Everything was cooked to perfection and really fresh. After lunch, the top deck is wonderful to stretch legs and get a 360 degrees view of the Harbour, where we took lots of photos. The arrival location at Circular Quay is very convenient, as you then can go and discover further aspects of the city, wondering in The Rocks and go to the Opera House. I would definitely recommend this tour and would most definitely do it again!
My adult children and I had a ball, the food was lovely, the ride was smooth and all in all we had a hoot. The only thing i would say is some staff were very attentive to their tables and others weren't, unfortunately we had a waitress who wasn't in top form, but we still didn't let that ruin it for us. She managed to serve every body around us drinks, bread and first cours and nothing for us, not even water. I would do it again.
We had a wonderful day, the boat great, service fantastic and food lovely. We had window seats and view was great, but it was really hot and the air con didnt really reach us for ages. But that is the only whinge!! Would thoroughly recommend for great value and wonderful service!
Absolutely wonderful. Breathtaking views. fantastic service and mouthwatering food
Very nice and relaxing! Great food and lovely way to see the harbour.
The lunch cruise is highly recommended. I and my wife enjoyed the 3-hour trip very much. The crew was quite friendly and the lunch served was amazing. Definitely worth it.
I have been on this type of cruise many times and found that it has always lived up to its reputation of fine food and great service. I go at least once a year and recommend it for anyone or a new visitor to Sydney. Great views as well.
The trip on the harbour was fantastic! The lunch was really great. The staff were to attentive. I would highly recommend this lunch time cruise to anyone.
Excellent service and fine food. A most enjoyable experience.
We really enjoyed this trip and would recommend it to others.
We had a wonderful afternoon. The food and service were first class. We had window seats so had great views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. I would definitely recommend this cruise.
This tour was great! The tour is very informative and is narrated. Each area of the tour on the ship is narrated over the speaker as you approach it. You are seated by the window and are able enjoy a delicious lunch of great food as you learn about Australia's history. Great tour!
Had an excellent lunch while cruising round the Harbour with some nice people I'd never met before. Thoroughly good trip, would recommend to anyone
It was good. A bit confusing getting on boat but the food was good and the cruise of Sydney harbor was great
This was probably the finest ship we saw for the harbor cruise. Service was very attentive and the food was quite good. Sydney harbor is the star atttraction!
The harbour is beautiful, and the cruise showed it excellently. Lunch and service great. Very good value at the Viator price.
The cruise itself was amazing, fantastic views and service was ok. We had the gnocchi entree which was beautiful but unfortunately the meal was let down by the main. We got the steak, which was an excellent piece of meat but destroyed by poor cooking and poor choice of condiments. It would have been acceptable if served in a pub on sunday night roast night with overcooked pork but not for a piece of steak of this quality. None of the flavors in this dish worked at all and we ended up taking 2 bites and leaving the rest. The desert fortunately was lovely. Despite the sub-quality dining experience, the cruise was fantastic, the perfect length and with plenty to see.
