Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is a super introduction to Sydney for first-time visitors. The harbour lunch cruise gives visitors a great feel for this vibrant coastal city.
Get picked up at your hotel in an air-conditioned coach (times under Itinerary) to begin the morning portion of your Sydney tour.

Drive from Sydney CBD to the suburb of Manly, listening as your driver shares informative commentary about the city’s history and landmarks. Pass Darling Harbour, and stop at Milson’s Point and the Arabanoo Lookout for a new perspective on the engineering of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

Wander in Manly on a pedestrian walkway known as The Corso, and end up at Manly Beach. After marveling at the majestic Pacific Ocean and dipping your toes in the water, hop back in your coach to drive back to central Sydney.

For lunch, you have two options. You can upgrade to include a lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour, or you can take two hours on your own before rejoining the coach for the afternoon portion of your tour.

After lunch, see highlights in downtown, such as Hyde Park, St. Mary’s Cathedral, and the Parliament House. Stop at the Royal Botanic Gardens, and take in panoramic vistas of Sydney Harbour from a landmark known as Mrs Macquarie’s Chair.

Keep your camera handy as your coach travels out of town to the dramatic seaside cliffs called The Gap. There you’ll have great photo ops of Watson’s Bay. Continue on to Bondi Beach.

Your return journey to Sydney takes you through desirable areas such as Paddington and Rushcutters Bay. Arrive back at your hotel around 5:15 p.m.

Tour was okay. Our guide, Stuart from AAT Kings, took us to really great spots in the city and was very informative. I do wish we got to spend more time in manly and bondi.
Cruise was okay though, kinda sad actually. It was empty and quiet, but we got to see really good views around the harbour.
Also, as other reviews mentioned, we also had italian tourists behind us. So while the english guy was speaking, we can also hear the italian guide speak he was pretty loud, so their voices were pretty much clashing making it hard to hear the english guide.

We selected this tour as a means of getting right across Sydney on the first day of our holiday - we got much more the length and breadth, including Manly to Bondi and all around the Harbour and Quayside, CBD etc! The tour guide Peter was outstanding in every respect. Plenty of stops and time to do your own thing before re-joining the tour group.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The guide, who was also our driver, did just the right amount of talking for us to enjoy the sights. The pacing was perfect - we had time enough at each stop without feeling hurried.

This is a great tour if you are interested in getting to now about Sydney, view the main parts of the city and have a lunch while cruising on the Harbor. We really enjoyed the tour as an introduction to Sydney, the driver/guide did a great job, lunch was just ok, but view on the harbor was beautiful.

This Sydney Tour provided us a good overview of the city and surroundings. The driver provided a good talk about almost every major spot. But I have to point out one important point that the Sydney Opera House is world famous structure, but the tour did not take us close to the house. We did view it only from a distance. The tour bus did pick up at our hotel, but it dropped us at some place close to our hotel but we had to find way back to the hotel.

AAT King Tour was supposed to pick up and drop off at our hotel. Our hotel was clearly listed on the tour information with a time and instructions on which door to meet the bus. A couple of days prior to the tour we received an email stating due to street closures we would have to be picked up at a different hotel several blocks away and at an earlier time. We thought ok it was probably construction or perhaps a marathon or bicycle race. We walked out of the hotel and the first thing we see in front of our hotel is a Gray Line Tour bus and a smaller tour bus. We hiked to the other hotel and asked the driver why AAT King could not pick us up at our hotel since it was obvious the streets were not closed and other buses were picking up at our hotel. He just blamed it on company policy. On the return we asked the driver to take us to our hotel since it was obvious the streets were not closed and our hotel was specifically listed as a pick up and drop off point for our tour. He made up an excuse and dropped us at a different location. If you book AAT King tours assume you are at their mercy if they decide it is not to their advantage to honor the terms stated when they sell the tour.

This was a very nice tour. The Harbor lunch cruise on the Captain Cook was a great way to see the harbor and the luncheon was quite good.
