Our tour did not include a walk in Chinatown as it started to rain; however, the rest of the tour was exceptional, mainly due to the driving skills and knowledge of John S, our driver and guide. We had several photo stops including a stop to see two iconic Sydney structures: the Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera. I liked John's background on neighborhoods and Bondi Beach. The view of the harbor entrance was majestic. The tour ended about noon at the Circular Quay giving us time to grab lunch before continuing to the Opera. The tour was great, but there were limitations on what and when we could photograph.

John S was personable and courteous, as well as knowledgeable and and easy to understand by American ears. Just the right length for an easy intro to Sydney.

Good way to see Sydney harbour. Interesting commentary. Good food. Where you get on and off was a little confusing, but thats a picky little detail! Overall this is good value.

Great tour of the city and sights.

Tour was great, although the Opera House supplement was disappointing. While the Opera House was a great experience and a must-see, the guided tour was horrible.

Enjoyable, reasonably priced orientation tour, the high points being an interesting walking tour at The Rocks, the old part of the city built to a large extent with convict labor, and a park stop with nice views of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge. The Bondi Beach stop, said to be an iconic location, was a bit boring. Rather empty, few surfers and no waves, and not many shops. I'm sure it's a matter of timing. Wish we had time for the upgrades, as they would have been very interesting. Tour operator did hotel pick-up in the morning, but no drop-off afterwards, so you're on your own getting back to your hotel.
