What to Expect
After hotel pickup, start your tour with a walk around the cobblestone streets of the Rocks, site of Australia’s first European settlement. Learn how Sydney has changed over the centuries, and hear about the Gadigal people—the original Aboriginal inhabitants and landowners of Sydney.  Next travel to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair and get fabulous photo ops of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Continue to Bondi Beach, where you can disembark for views of the Pacific Ocean and a look at the lifeguards who inspired the popular TV show “Bondi Rescue.” Make another photo stop at Dudley Page Reserve, then go through Chinatown on the way back to downtown Sydney, where your tour ends at King Street Wharf or Circular Quay. Upgrade to add a buffet lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour or a tour of the Sydney Opera House—both essential experiences for any visit to Sydney.

Dear Skyla W Thanks for your review. No where do we state the tour is only 10 people. Unless specified all our tours are operated by large luxury coaches, which we have done so for 30+ years. I would like to know where you saw this mentioned/advertised - please advise us at operations@graylinesydney.com.au so that we can query/correct the source. Nevertheless, we're very happy you enjoyed your tour. Kind regards Gray Line Sydney Team
