Most memorable part would have to be just sitting back and enjoying the views of Sydney. The staff were great and the boat itself was awesome. Would definitely do again. Thank you.

Lovely accessible, sunset cruise
Wayne_G, Apr 2024
Travelling in a wheelchair the staff were very helpful during boarding and had a reserved a lovely window table on the accessible ground level. The charcuterie board was tasty and well presented as were the included cocktail and glass of wine. We went at 5pm to see the sunset and were not disappointed, overall a lovely trip and well worth the cost.
Great views and good food and drink
Morten_S, Apr 2024
Great set-up. A nice boat/ferry and something nice to drink and eat. The harbour in Sydney is fantastic and you can take great pictures White you are at it.
Excellent !
patricia_h, Mar 2024
Fantastic views, service, amazing cheese and chacuterie. I’m so glad I did this tour. Perfect way to see the most iconic sights without epic crowds
Nice Experience
Athena_D, Mar 2024
Gorgeous views of the Sydney Harbour and Opera House 😍 The welcome cocktail & wine was lovely🥂 Unfortunately there was no live music so I think this needs to be changed on bookings as we were expecting live music and I was quite gutted that there was none ☹️ The charcuterie board was delicious and overall it was a nice boat ride ⚓️
Nice way to explore Sydney from the water side
Andreas_M, Mar 2024
Great view on Sydney Harbour and the different parts of the city. Good drinks and ambience, friendly staff.
Nice tour
Marina_F, Mar 2024
The tour staff were nice & it was a nice ride w great views. Only downside is it is advertised as a 2 hour cruise & we got off the boat at a different port at the 2.5 hour mark because it ran long.
A must do in Sydney
Rachel_K, Mar 2024
Amazing value and so comfortable. Food and service were amazing. I would highly recommend this when in Sydney. Will be doing it again.
Good value, would repeat
Katrina_H, Mar 2024
Would totally do this again. The view was wonderful, the staff were friendly, and the food and drinks were good. A few small negatives: we started at the darling harbour and then headed out and made a stop at circular quay to pick up more passengers, which was fine but kind of cut into the length of the trip. Also, there was no live music and it was on a day that stated there would be. Not deal breakers, but worth mentioning. I had a friend that lives in Australia with me and she enjoyed it too. Again, would repeat and found it to be a very good value.
Just What The Doctor Ordered!
James_G, Mar 2024
Very well attended to ship (Sydney 2000). Friendly and attentive staff who were easily available. Charcuterie board I ordered was spot-on as were the beverages. The trip around the harbor was very relaxing and well needed after 5 days on business in Melbourne then Brisbane and finally in Sydney.
Decent value
Will_H, Feb 2024
Very relaxing and just the right amount of time, good food and drink choice too. Good value for money
Nice tour but…
mschechter, Feb 2024
Nice tour but no live band or commentary as stated on your website. Good value with a couple drinks and snacks included. We chose Sunday because of live music but disappointed there was none.
Nice evening
Michael_N, Feb 2024
Had a nice time on our sunset cruise. A couple of cocktails for each of us, plus an appetizer plate. Cruise around the harbor was scenic. Well worth the price.
The crew and live music...
Charles_D, Feb 2024
The crew and live music was great, as was the cheese platter. Only negative was the beer and wine was Luke warm. But overall a great experience.
Sunset cruise.
Rosalind_G, Feb 2024
We were seated on comfortable couches by the windows. We were instructrd to view the menu and select one cocktail each from the menu and one beer, wine, lemonade, or water each. Since my husband did not a cocktail and I did not want beer, I was able to order two cocktails and he was able to have two beers. We were served a chaucuerterie board with cheeses, meats, dried fruit. During the cruise we were able to go outside to take photos. The sunset was pretty and we saw the sites along the route light up for the night. It was a relaxing evening.
Not for sightseeing
kbachmann60187, Feb 2024
There was no narrative and the app was complicated meant for world use and therefore we had no idea what we were looking at. The cheese board and drinks were excellent!
Nice but could have been great.
Lisa_D, Feb 2024
Drinks were good and so was the setting. Disappointed there was no narration to the ride. So many interesting sights but knew nothing about any of them.
Wonderful Experience
Peter_C, Jan 2024
Highly recommend this experience the staff was excellent the charcuterie’s was spectacular We saw several sights around the harbour allowing for several photo opportunities overall it was a great evening experience
Would not recommend....
Oriana_D, Jan 2024
Would not recommend. Unhelpful agency. Contacting process is not effective. Was unable to locate cruize ship at meeting point, end up missing it. Unpleasant experience operator on phone.
Nice 2 hour cruise around the harbor. Food and drinks were great.
Robert_S, Jan 2024
The cruise was very nice. It would have been good to know that they also stop at Circular Quay since that was right next to our cruise ship. It woukd have saved us from having to take the train over to Darling Harbor, only to ride the boat to the dock right next door!
Just a cruise with drinks
Matthew_P, Jan 2024
There was no guide for the tour, and I would have appreciated some sort of narration. If you are just expecting a sightseeing cruise of the bay with nice seating, an appetizer, and 2 included drinks, then this will fit the bill. The views were great, but the same views can be had for the price of a ferry from Circular Quay.
