Barbara W February 2021

We took the two day pass that included admission to the zoo. It was a great choice. We saw so much of the Bay and really got our bearings from that. It was very interesting and very relaxing so a great choice. Excellent value.

Lief G March 2020

Cruise offered a surprising number of destinations among Sydney Harbor's 67 bays. We got 2-day pass and were glad we did. Schedules were spot-on and the narrations varied enough from speaker to speaker that even sailing the same route was interesting.

Sandi K March 2020

Great way to see the Harbor! The boats were comfortable and mostly on schedule; the staff was courteous and helpful.

randy e February 2020

This was a great way to see the Sydney Harbor and get to see many areas we might not have seen. Amazing views of the entire skyline, Two best stops for us were Manley Bay and Darling harbor.

Jane B February 2020

A great way to see the harbor and all the coves and bays. We went to Manly and walked two blocks to the beach to see the surfers. The second day we took the ferry to the Toranga Zoo and spent several hours enjoying the animals, especially the Australian ones. The ferries were a great way to inexpensively get from here to there and all points in between!

dave.camp74 November 2019

very good got to go were I wanted with out any trouble, greet I would recommend it to anyone going to Sydney.

This tour was awesome! 2 fun days cruising around the harbor. The tour also included tickets to the Taronga zoo. Day 2 we went to lunch at Watsons day. Well worth the money!

This Harbour hop on hop off was one of the best choices I made for my Sydney four day stay pre cruise. The hop on hop off provided me the opportunity to see other islands via this mode of transportation. But I. Use say that I did both the land and water hop on hop off. This was a great way to see other than land hop on hop off. All stops on this tour was different than the land hop on hop off so I would re moment doing both if possible,

Great fun- remember the sun screen if you head to Australia from the states in the winter.

Wendy Q April 2018

Wonderful way to get familar with the Sysney Harbour and neighborhoods. Such a beautiful place! We used this 2 day hop-on-off tour for our first couple of says after 24 hours of travel and it was a perfect way to recover and be doing something as well! Definitely recommend getting off and seeing the various sites, taking a hike at each and having a meal.

victoria b March 2018

My husband and I were in Sydney for only 3 nights and wanted to make the best of it. Someone we met who already traveled to Sydney advised us to get the hop-on-hop-off cruise pass. We did it and absolutely loved it! It was the best thing we could've done to enjoy the sights and sounds of Sydney Harbour. We enjoyed the 2 day pass with the Taronga Zoo tickets. We love being on the water and enjoyed being able to get off and get back on. The only thing is, we did get a bit confused trying to read the schedule on getting around, so make sure you understand it.

Allan W March 2018

Excellent 2 days on the hop on hop off cruise where we visited Manly and Watson’s Bay. We also used the small boats to and from Darling Harbour to Circular Quay - a very good service overall.

Excellent way to see the harbor in a relaxing way. Highly recommend.

Tim B February 2016

Great way to spend the day in Sydney Harbour. Our third tour guide was the best sorry can not remember her name but she was more informative than the two guys we had. The person at the check in counter was very helpful also. Wished we had more time.

James R January 2016

Well worth your time and money. Had a great lunch at Doyles Sydney Watson's Bay during one of the stops. Highly recommended!

Pamela D January 2016

Pam H January 2016

A good day exploring the harbour. We were able to hop - off to explore, walk and get lunch, so it made a good day and was very informative.
