The buffet meal was just pork, beef or chicken, which we saw them cooking in bags on the stove. The meat was bland and the salads had just about run out. I can say the staff were excellent, gave us lots of information on our trip around the harbour. The view for vivid was great. I was a little nervous... More

meal was served as a buffet in the dark, had to walk around to find a seat, there was ropes laying over the walk way the only good thing was the view, I felt I wasted my money

My husband climbed the mast & he said the views were fantastic so would totally recommend it if you are scared of heights. the lunch was pretty average... More

Built in Denmark in 1919, this e3 masted wooden shiphas an incredible history - even worked as an ice breaker! Booked the late afternoon trip with open bar sailing from Campbells Cove, left end of the Quay. Nibbles and drinks arrived as we sailed off under the Harbour Bridge heading east past the Opera House.

we'd booked an evening cruise to we could take in the Vivid light show from the water. Although registering at the wharf and embarkation was disorganised and left everyone standing around for half an hour wondering what was happening, in the end it didn't matter. The cruise was fantastic, good commentary from our host, a guitarist to provide fire side-style... More

I booked the dinner cruise to see the Vivid lights during the light festival in Sydney. The views were absolutely beautiful however this tour is more about viewing sydney by night than about vivid lights. The boat is a very beautiful old boat. I would recommend the cruise but not the "dinner cruise". The food really needs to be improved.... More

We went on the Soren Larsen so we could feel like we stepped back in time to see see Vivid. The night was quite warm for a winter night and very calm so it made the evening very relaxing and enjoyable. The captain was great and the entertainer Colin was very informative and sung some amazing old sea songs. The... More

What a lovely way to experience the magic of Sydney Harbour at night aboard the Southern Swan. We choose Sydney Harbour Tall Ships for our Vivid Cruise and we are very glad we did. Wonderful friendly and professional staff. Open bar and good food and delightful entertainment with a talented singer on acoustic guitar. We will certainly book again for... More
