The tour was much better than those big boats. We were warmly greeted and treated. Saw lots of fancy homes and really enjoyed getting off the boat to see the cove and the view of the 'gap'. It is well worth the cost.

A great trip around the harbour. See the sights from a different perspective and get a friendly Sydney-siders view of life in the city as well.

We took the 3 hour small group afternoon boat tour. We asked if we could bring champagne on board and they said no problem (just drink it at the beach not during the ride because it can get a little bumpy at times). Everyone was...More

Loved our guide, she was personable and knowledgable. It was a small group of 8 but the boat wasn't full, probably could fit 15 or so. We enjoyed the Sydney Harbour bays, the beach landings and the Quarantine museum (very interesting) for a tour and...More
