Beautiful evening with dear friends viewing the spectacular Sydney Harbor and iconic buildings from different angles. The dinner, pairing of wines and service was outstanding. The boat was nicely layed and comfortable. We also enjoyed the live music.

Great food, attentive staff, wonderful evening.
Stephen_S, Apr 2024
We made reservations for the Penfolds Dinner Cruise not knowing that it was a wine tasting AND dinner. What a terrific experience! From the moment we went on board to the moment of disembarkation, our every need was attended to by our waitress and hostess. The meal was expertly prepared. My steak was cooked to perfection. And you cannot beat the views from the dinner ship as we slowly glided in Sydney Harbor.
Not at all what we expected
sallyebond, Apr 2024
We booked a gold dinner evening cruise with a window seat. We had to pay 30 Australian dollars extra for a window seat, despite there being free tables, which was soo embarrassing everyone was looking at us as if we were trying to get something for nothing when all we wanted was what we had booked. Also the boat was large and seemed to have guests on all sorts of different dining/drinking experiences. Not at all restful or romantic. Would not recommend
Great food, bad wine
Matthew_A, Mar 2024
Amazing service, amazing food! The wine provided was awful, and is the primary reason for my 3/5 rating. The boat was not elegant in any way, however the roof top was awesome!
Great food and wine!
Amy_R, Mar 2024
The tour was exactly as stated. The service was excellent and the food and wine were equally excellent. We had Mildred as a server and she was fabulous! The only small, very small issue, is to know that when you book this tour, you may not get a table by the window. We were in the middle on a platform and could still see but were not by a window. It was not a huge issue as the second 1/2 of the cruise was dark but if you want a window seat, just know this. You can also walk to an upper deck for great views at any point during the cruise. We would still do the tour again when in Sydney.
Great night
Chris_S, Mar 2024

Dont book through viator, its misinformed, check the website
Helena_S, Feb 2024
Dont call it skydeck if its clubdeck. Dont say windowseats if you dont give windowseats. Dont state 3 hours when its barely 2,5 h The food and drinks are good, the experience not
Magnificent night off
Sonya_B, Feb 2024
Excellent cruise, lovely atmosphere. The food was superb and service exceptional. I would highly recommend this cruise for a special night out either as a couple or with friends.
Lovely wine and a lovely evening
melanie_p, Feb 2024
Loved this night I am not a wine drinker and it was booked purely as my partner is and the food and experience ... it didn't disappoint 🙌...plenty of wine and also beer and spirits if wanted ... the food was delicious and the eye fillet was incredible... some small tips if you want more bread just ask and if you want a refill also ask .... we had Lola the budding actress who was chatty and lovely.... enjoyed the evening and the atmosphere also the live music was good 👍 also if you want a seat by the window ask when booking ... also the windows needed cleaning 😌 but that didn't dampen our evening at all 😁
Great night out
Michael_W, Dec 2023
Great night. Great food great wine wonderful service. Very very enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone
Very well done and worth the experience
Valerie_F, Nov 2023
The food was excellent as was the service. Every attempt to meet our needs was made. Disappointed there was no pickup and dropoff as was initially in the info.
Delicious evening
Russell_S, Nov 2023
A lovely experience - scenery, food and wine were all excellent. Staff were courteous and accommodating. My only negative was being asked to pay extra for guaranteed window seating on a cruise for which we had already paid $269pp and which is marketed around the views! Seemed a bit rude!
Amazing experience
Kurt_D, Nov 2023
The food was amazing staff were so friendly also the wines tasted beautiful and the whole scenery of Sydney of a night picture perfect
Great Night in Sydney
Anonymous, Oct 2023
Great food and wine with a superb view of the harbor. The only concern was that the seats were sold as “best” but when we got there they said the best seats had to pay an additional $100!
Food was great but not worth the money and definitely wouldn’t return
Sara_O, Oct 2023
The food was fantastic. However the cruise felt very rushed and we couldn’t even enjoy or finish one course without the next being shoved on us!
Scenic dinner cruise
Frank_E, Oct 2023
Perfect table to view the sights of Sydney with a good food selection accompanied by some excellent wines. Pianist and singer just added to the atmosphere.
Classy. delicious food. Great view
Cole_D, Aug 2023
This was a great little cruise around the harbor. Very classy and service was good. 6 glasses of wine served. 5 of which were paired with food. You could order beer and liquor if you want as well. Each course was just the right size to not get too full. Great for a date or a group of friends or just to view the city at night.
Felt at ease
Andrew_F, Aug 2023
Good music fine service and wine and dine delicious. Frequently went to rear deck for spectacular views of the harbour nigh sky
Great evening during Vivid
