Great service, notifying us a few days before our transfer and on the morning of updating us with ETA. A little crowded but still comfortable. A very friendly driver, even checking if anyone needed the bathroom before the drive to the airport.

Shuttle from ship to airport
Marcia_F, Feb 2024
Got there at the assigned time,, sent text when they arrived! Safely got us to airport, no problem. Friendly driver
Amazing service and excursions.
Denise_S, Feb 2024
I love using Viator. They are so dependable and on time. I needed to change my time on this last trip and it was so easy. Our driver was also so pleasant and informative. They also have great excursions which every time I’ve booked them, they’ve turned out to be my favorites. I’m really sappy with Viator and we always use them. I will never plan another trip without them.
I will think twice before reserving tours through Viator in the future and will never, ever recommend Go Sydney Shuttle

Your Go Sydney Shuttle driver took off without picking us up and I still got charged $40.90. We had to quickly arrange for an alternative, very expensive transportation to the Sydney international airport. This was a complete rip-off plus the person, named John D., was very rude, screaming and disrespectful. The scheduled pickup time was 7:30; however your contract stated that it could very by up to 20 minutes on either side. This driver blamed us for a two-minute delay past 7:30 am scheduled time despite it was totally our of our control to get there before 7:30 am since Carnival had its own schedule to unload over 3, 000 guests in an orderly fashion in addition to Australian agricultural inspection before leaving the port. We nevr had such a rude, rip-off experience in all the years we have traveled around the world. Please make to refund the $40.90 charge asap. No ride, no payment. I have also filed a dispute with the Citibank and plan to elevate this issue to the highest level until it is resolved properly. Thank you.
Pleasant drive from the cruise ship terminal to airport.

Rolanddavid_S, Dec 2023
being hassled 20 minutes before my booked time whilst still on ship and every few mins until i got off, then receiving verbal abuse form another American client frustrated by having to wait. then sitting in front seat whilst driver managed to get to airport in 25 mins driving like crazy. not personable river either.
Pick Up Times are Not What You List
Coreen_J, Dec 2023
Shuttle itself was fine, but planning was a bit difficult for getting off the cruise ship. When booking, they asked what time I'd be disembarking the ship. I'd booked to pick up a car at the airport at 8.45am. Day before the transfer, I was told pick up wouldn't happen until between 9-9.30, so had to cancel car rental and rebook. Thankfully I had internet access and got the notice. I was getting off the ship at 8.30, and was already being texted about my status. My main recommendation is don't have firm plans/times and be flexible.
Great service

Shuttle cruise harbor to Sydney airport
Patricia_B, Nov 2023
Easy to book, driver was wonderful & flexible with the time you get off the cruise ship! There were a number of people and a lot of luggage and the driver, and all that all very well
Our party was delayed...
Clayton_S, Nov 2023
Our party was delayed from departure of the cruise ship and this was out of our control. It was disappointing that we didn’t get to meet the driver or get the opportunity to reschedule the service as we needed to get to the airport. A refund would be appreciated.
Pick up was easy and very...
Piper_T, Aug 2023

Sydney Airport Transfer
Carey_C, Mar 2023
I had a transfer booked for a 8:30am transfer from the port of Sydney to the airport. I arrived at the pickup point at 8:20. The shuttle wasn't there. I called the company at 8:40 and was told my appointment was for 9:00 am which wasn't true. My copy of invoice showed 8:30. The driver arrived 10 minutes later and stated that there were 2 other passenger scheduled for the same ride at 9:00 am. Guess they wanted to combine both. Finally at 9:15, I told the driver we had to leave or I'd miss my flight. He called the office and we then left. Luckily I made my flight.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your feedback. Pickup times for a shared shuttle service are emailed a day before your travel date. They are not on the invoice. The idea of a shared shuttle service is to combine customers to travel together.
Great Old fashioned service
Neil_D, Feb 2023
Friendly service, on time and hassle free. better than taxi and public transport, took us direct to terminal door.
Crap service
Beverly_W, Oct 2022
Didn’t happen !when we booked was given a pick up time just 9.00 - 15.00 , didn’t have wifi while away only when we arrived in port in Sydney , had a time 10.00am I messaged to let them know we were still on the cruise ship and as our flight was not until 15.40 we were put in later time to come off the ship which was suppose to be 9.15 , we had lined up to get off at 8.00 but didn’t get off until almost 1pm and got a message back telling me we were late and to find my own way to airport , not happy what a waste of money , will not be using this service again !
