Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Sydney Tour with Optional Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise

Bondi Beach Sydney

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.

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.

Excellent overview of Sydney. Provided a taste of places we later explored in detail. Tour bus was comfortable and tour guide provided plenty of information. Pick up and drop off times and locations were punctual and exact. No worries.

This was a great city tour taking us all the way from Manly Beachj to close up and distant views of the Harbor Bridge and the Opera House as well as other city places like the Rocks, Darling Harbor, Circular Quay, Mrs. Macquaries Chair, Botanical gardens, and Bondi Beach provided us with an excellent orientation of the Sydney area.

Our driver, John, was a delight, very knowledgeable. Got a really good overview of the city. The harbor cruise was very nice and lunch was excellent. The only disappointment I had was that there supposedly was hotel pickup and drop off. While we were picked up at our hotel we were dropped off several blocks away from it. Being somewhat mobility challenged, that was a bit of a disappointment.

Everything that everybody tells you about Sydney is true! Wonderful harbour, iconic Bridge and Opera House! Wall to wall sunshine and trips to Manly and Bondi beaches as well! Amazing we loved this trip and go for the lunch as you get better views of the harbour at the same time!

The Sydney tour was a great way to see all the highlights of the city in one day. I would highly recommend the lunch cruise as the scenery is absolutely beautiful. I was also very surprised by the quality of the food on the cruise. Overall, a really great experience. I really liked our driver as well as he was funny, quirky and full of information about the sites and Sydney. Definitely take the whole day tour instead of morning or afternoon only. Awesome, fun day for our family!

Lunch cruise was the best part of the tour! Best way to get your picture with Opera House in the background.
