Full Day Sydney Tour with Opera House and The Rocks Tour
Great day tour of Sydney
, Feb 2020
Great way to get an overview of Sydney. Our driver Peter T was great. Was very knowledgeable on the history of Sydney. We had a very rainy day but Peter made the most of it for us. Added several sites along the way as we were not always able to get out at all of the scheduled stops. Kept everyone entertained. Can't say enough good about him. The lunch cruise totally exceeded our expectations for the quality of the food. I would highly recommend this tour.
In spite of it being a very rainy day; our guide, Jason, made it a wonderful tour. He had to deal with some “difficult” passengers, and he was able to take care of matters graciously. Jason walked us to our destinations when necessary so we always felt looked after. We saw a great deal of Sydney on this tour. Very worthwhile.

Everything was good till the last pickup from the the Darling Harbor. The employee on the last boat gave us incorrect information that there was another boat coming. The store front of the company at the harbor were also of no help and promptly closed the store at 5, leaving us stranded at the harbor. The good thing was that the metro was within walking distance and so we could get back to our hotel without having to take an expensive taxi.
Great views of the city and enjoyable rides to Luna Park and Manly Beach. I liked having the flexibility to use this over two days. The one thing that would make this better is if it ran later into the evening. Make sure to check the timetables!

The fires kinda dampened the tour. Not so much the smell of smoke, it was as if fog had rolled in to stay for the duration.

Sydney The Rocks Historical Pub Tour with Drinks and Dinner
A memorable pub crawl
, Jan 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening “on the rocks” in Sydney, starting with pub dinner at the Australian Hotel pub, where we met our intrepid guide, Colin. Once we finished eating, we strolled to Harts pub for our introduction to the traditions and history of beer drinking as Sydney developed from its hard working origins, learned about “beer crimes” and how the Sydney drinking style developed. Col kept us highly entertained and slipped lots of history into the night.
I highly recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys ‘the bending of the wrist,” and who has an interest in local history.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, not just about beer, but also about the history of the area. It was a smaller tour which made it even more fun because we got to know the people in our group and there's nothing like having a few beers with people that are cool.

Our group of 6 enjoyed this tour to the Blue Mountains very much, while appreciating the difficult situation being managed in the area. At the time we visited, the tragic wildfires affecting New South Wales caused a significant amount of smoke in the mountains. We had enormous respect for the firefighters and others working to control the blazes and could see them working in the distance on a fire line. We were able to do most of the planned activities. A stop at a park to interact with wild cockatoos was a highlight. The gondola, incline railway, short hike to waterfalls, and drives to lookout points were also interesting. We enjoyed the catamaran ride back to downtown Sydney under the Harbour Bridge at the end of the day. We would have liked to see more of the Olympic Park rather than a quick drive past on the highway. Overall, the day was very good, and our guide (Len?) was terrific.
