We booked the long lunch cruise during a short stay in Sydney with the family. It was the second time for my husband and I but a new experience for the kids (9 & 11 yrs). They really enjoyed the history in the commentary and we all loved the food. We came off the boat feeling very relaxed and looking forward to the next time.

Albeit a little cool in the wind on the top deck of the boat, we very much enjoyed our cruise around Sydney Harbour during a weekend escape to Sydney. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the sites and history of Sydney, also sharing points of interest about realestate along the harbour shores. The cruise gives you the opportunity to see and appreciate the spectacular scenery in Sydney. Much better than by road but I wouldn't want to do this tour on a cold day as I don't think you would get the same out of the trip sitting inside behind windows.

We got perfect weather so we sat outside the boat. It was a lot of fun and a great way to get good photos of the bridge and opera house. I highly recommend!

We received a gift voucher for this experience, so I cannot advise on cost.
However, everything else considered, a truly wonderful relaxing 2hours in our beautiful harbour on the John Cadman.
Seafood was really freshy. Not an overwhelmimg buffet, but mouth-watering and plentiful. Staff were friendly and attentive. Purchase from a great wine selection.
Absolutely no complaints.
If there's one thing to improve it's the pre-start attention. We were told to come at 11.30 for 12pm start but it got quite hot and uncomfortable waiting, especially for families with young ones.
On another side, the staff over the phone were really lovely and helpful too,

I took a short 2 hour+ cruise around Sydney harbour. Although I lived in Sydney many years ago I loved the imformative commentry so interesting. The main part of the harbour had not changed much but certainly around Darling Harbour & surrounding areas had. A must for visitors to Sydney staff very friendly & helpful.
