Fantastic tour. Great crew, the food was delicious, and we had just enough time in the bay to relax. HIGHLY recommended.

A superb day out. The vessel was designed for a maximum of 14 passengers. We had ten and it was ideal. Our captain was brisk and efficient. There was an onboard guide whose commentary was interesting and amusing.The trip included lunch -prawns for entree, salmon and beef for the main course. Wine and beer was freely available.
The trip ticks all the boxes for a good day out.

This was a special way to see the Sydney Harbor and all of its bays and sights along the water. Shane and Howard did a very nice job of telling us about the area, navigating the cabin cruiser, preparing our meal and anything else that needed taking care of. The weather did include a few rain showers, but that did not ruin the day for me. It is advertised that there is time to swim, fish and kayak, but the reality is that they are so busy taking care of lunch and other items, there really isn't the help needed to make that happen. Since I was not planning to do anything but enjoy the sights this did not impact my good time. I would suggest they add another crew member for these activities.

My husband and I did this cruise in Apr 16 and had a great time. Can't beat the views from the water and it was very relaxing to have such a small group. Crew was great and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend.

Great tour. Shane and Tracy were wonderful. It was informative and the cove we set into stunning. Shane did a great grilling job besides captaining the boat. Ample food and wine. We happened to go on a blisteringly hot day in Sydney but it was cool and lovely on the boat. Would highly recommend it and take it again.

The harbor tour was excellent. Only 8 of us on board. covered the complete harbor, good commentary, and a delicious BBQ'd meal. Would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Sydney.

Great Tour. All what we expected and more. We were a group of 4 friends and there were 4 more passengers on board. Our guide was very good. The views were amazing, we went all around the harbour from the Opera to the Darling harbour. The lunch very good and the drinks kept coming. One thing we didn't realize was that we could have also been swimming during the lunch break. It wasn't properly advised and didn't have our bathing suits with us. A great experience 10 out of 10

My partner and I were in Sydney for two days prior to heading off on a cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas, and we were looking for something to while away a few hours, so I searched the net and found THE BEST deal going around... $140.00 per person for a 4.5 hour cruise on Sydney Harbour, complete with lunch and complimentary drinks.
As well as the two of us, there approximately 10 other people on board who came from all over the United States, as well as a lovely couple from London who were on honeymoon, so we had more than enough room on the boat. Combine that with perfect weather, and we were given the opportunity to see Sydney and it's beautiful harbour in all it's glory.
My compliments go to the crew on board, who did a great job in keeping is well fed, making sure that drinks were available when we needed, and giving us a great insight into the history and sights of the harbour.
All in all, if you are in Sydney, do yourself a favour and get on this tour... IT IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!

Tim was an excellent First Mate, giving us all the great details about Sydney and the harbour without talking ad nauseum. This let us get some knowledge and also enjoy the beautiful scenery. Lunch was delicious, and our small group really enjoyed the experience. The boat is comfortable and cozy without being a huge ship just moving people back and forth. Thanks again, Tim!

I read some place that it wasn't necessary to pay the price for a cruise around Sydney Harbour. That all you had to do was take the ferry from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour. But if you do that you will miss out on so much. This cruise was just outstanding. Polly, who guided us through the cruise, is from the states, so she knows all the things that are different about the area that an Australian wouldn't even think to mention. Of course we saw the opera house and the bridge, but we saw so much more. The beaches; where the millionaires live; and the glorious marinas. We anchored near a beach and had the most delicious lunch. None of us was brave enough to go for a swim, but we could have right off the back of the boat. The (complimentary) wine flowed freely. There were seven of us on the trip. Three couples and me, the loner. It's not a giant tour boat. It's an intimate cabin cruiser, but with plenty of room inside and out, upstairs and down. We certainly got our money's worth. And I now have more pictures of the Sydney Opera House than I do of my own daughter.

Informative friendly staff made the cruise more enjoyable than even the seafood platter for lunch. We were the only ones on the cruise to take the plunge and celebrate with a swim in Rose Bay: we felt so blessed

A very worthwhile trip with knowledgeable guide. Plenty of free flowing drink, but food fairly basic as it was described as a BBQ, but really a cold buffet. Great views around the harbour and would have preferred a little more touring than a lengthy lunch stop albeit at a very picturesque location. Convenient pick up and drop off location in Circular Quay and close too The Rocks. Overall 4, so I would recommend.

A relaxing beginning, stretched out on the front of the yacht and given a glass of wine as we settled in set the tone for the trip. We were blessed with the weather, the tour guide was good at gauging his audience and knew when to talk/not overtalk. There was lots of information on the houses in the area, prices, famous people etc which was interesting but I'd like some more facts about the geographical area, what type of wildlife and sealife is there. Overall a fantastic experience, the seafood added a touch of luxury, would highly recommend to friends.

Chilly, sunny and windy day. Tour guide very entertaining and knowledgeable. Tour left after 12:35pm and returned at 4:10pm. Shy of 4 hrs as advertised. I was fine to return early since weather chilly (no rain). Only recommendation, let guests have their own access to more refreshments, even if just soda.

I wouldn't call this a luxury cruise. The boat was comfortable and the food OK. The first mate tried to serve the guests food and drink and narrate the tour. There should have been someone there to serve as hostess.
