What You Can Expect

Sydney: Bondi Beach and Kings Cross Tour plus Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise

Sydney's famous Bondi Beach

Start your tour by making your own way to King Street Wharf to board your motorized yacht for your Sydney Harbour lunch cruise. Enjoy a superb buffet lunch while viewing waterside sights such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison and Shark Island.

When you return to the dock, transfer to a comfortable air-conditioned bus for a spin around the city and its stunning beachside suburbs. Your driver shares informative commentary about the history, people and landmarks of Sydney throughout your tour.

Drive through the historic district called The Rocks, where the British colony was established in the 1780s. Admire another perspective on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, then pass by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Hyde Park and St Mary's Cathedral, whose architecture was inspired by Notre Dame in Paris.

Drive past Parliament House, Art Gallery of New South Wales and the lush open space of The Domain, then view Sydney Town Hall, Sydney Tower and bustling Darling Harbour. Head into the Royal Botanic Gardens to take in panoramic views of Sydney Harbour from Mrs Macquarie's Chair, then head over to The Gap, where tall sandstone cliffs meet the Pacific Ocean. Continue to famous Bondi Beach and have time for a stroll along the sand or afternoon tea (own expense).

Then continue by road to the waterside suburbs of Paddington and Double Bay, which are known for handsome 18th-century houses and sprawling mansions. Meander through Rushcutters Bay, home to the Royal Cruising Yacht Club, and travel through bohemian Kings Cross, Sydney's red light district. Your guide points out modern architecture in Darling Harbour and where Sydney’s main shopping areas are located so that you can visit later if you like. Your tour ends with drop-off at select hotels in the early evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

The tours were fabulous. Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise was lovely, with gourmet food for lunch. However, the attendant at the window of Captain Cook's was extremely rude and unhelpful. That was where we needed to pick up our tickets. After the cruise, we were scheduled for the tour, which was fantastic. Driver/leader was very informative. The only problem was that we had no idea where to get the bus. We had no directions, so we went up to street level, frantically looking for the bus. We found it just before he took off. Great tours, but frustrating in terms of logistics.

The lunch cruise was very nice and enjoyed the river views. It was hard to hear everything the narrator was saying about certain view points. The bus tour was very good and the driver, David, was excellent at giving us the highlights. He was delightful!

Cruise of Sydney Harbor was very nice. Only problem was a large wedding party that made so much noise you couldn't hear the narrative. Seafood buffet had a lot of variety and was done about a well as can be for buffet style. We only had a short wait between departing the boat and picking up the bus for the rest of the tour. Bus tour was comprehensive and we got to see most of the main Sydney attractions. Stops were well planned and gave enough time to see things. Driver took each person back to where ever they wanted to go in Sydney. Great way to spend the first day in Sydney and see what you want to come back to visit.
