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.
