A good introduction to parts of Sydney, in fact we preferred Manly to Bondi beach! We took the option of the Harbour Lunch Cruise and enjoyed this - the food was good and the photo opportunities of Sydney, the Harbour Bridge and Opera House were brilliant
Great tour,very formative not too long and not too short considering it was very hot. The option for the lunch cruise was still available and we made the choice to take the Majestic Cruise and that was really enjoyable. TOP MARKS ALL ROUND
Excellent trip and fab bus driver, what a great sense of humour he had "WARREN" top guy great trip - pity about the weather 10/10
My Viator trip was excellent. I have used Viator in many different countries - and have found your tours to be the best of any taken. Always great itineraries and good photo stops - which other tours often do not offer - you just whiz by places. I will continue to book whenever I can with Viator!
We were picked up from our hotel at the exact scheduled time and after getting a few other passengers on board, we headed through Sydney, along Darling Harbour and over the famed Sydney Bridge! We made the first stop at Milsons Points right after crossing over the bridge, giving us front views of the Opera House for perfect picture shots! Driving through different neighborhoods really gave a better understanding of what Sydney is beyond the CBD, with beautiful houses and small niched harbours all around. Strolling along Manly Beach was really relaxing, watching people surfing, playing beach volley or simply enjoying lunch at one of the numerous coffee shops. It really felt like vacations! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and gave us lots of information about the city and areas we were driving through. This is a really nice tour to see beyond traditional Sydney and a great way to discover the Northern Beaches. Not having to drive was nice, giving me more time to appreciate the scenery!
I really enjoyed it, and our driver was fantastic. I just wish there were more photo stops though. I did both this tour and the Sydney, Bondi and Kingscross tour, and I would recommend the other tour instead of this one. Will definitely use the tour operator again and Viator again.
This is a very nice tour. It was my first view of Sydney and the sights were great. It was a great overview of the area.
We enjoyed this tour of Manly and the northern beaches but wish that it had included more of downtown Sydney. We didn't know that that portion required a full-day tour or at least was only available in the afternoon.
Trip was nice but the meal was quite ordinary for the price. Drinks could have been included; 2 beers and a glass of wine for the trip would have topped off a good day. Then was dumped at a circular quay and had no way of knowing where I was.
We did enjoy our trip although we felt we didn't see as many sights around Sydney. Manly was lovely, but only spent a short time there because of fog, traffic and other clients running late. Although this can't be helped we felt really rushed in Manly because that was where we really wanted to go. It was the reason we chose that particular tour. Perhaps it could be a little longer, an extra hour, to accommodate these unforseen things. We really wanted to spend much more time in Manly. By the time we got something to eat for morning tea, we ended up only having 15 minutes to look around and get back to the bus. We were only allocated 45 minutes in total.
This is a good tour if you're looking for an overview of the area. However, going on a coach tour always means you're herded around like cattle, there's not enough time to spend at a stop and there will inevitably be people who are late to get back to the coach so there is a lot of waiting for others. All of which take something away from the tour.
I was very disappointed as one of the reasons for taking the tour was to go to Neutral Bay and I was told by the driver that although the location was advertised, it was not possible to go there on the tour.
