John S was a great guide and we enjoyed our day with him. The lunch cruise provide splendid views of Sydney and our visits to the various beaches was of interest we prefer Manly Beach over the crowded Bondi. The tour bus was neat and clean.

Amazing tour with our coach driver and guide - John S - who was very knowledgeable and passionate about Sydney and imparted his knowledge to his Clients in a fun and informative way. Personally learnt loads. The stops we made gave amazing views from different perspectives and of course comparing Bondai to Manley beaches was fab with time for a paddle or quick swim. Definitely recommend this trip for an overview of Sydney in a day .
