Sydney Overview
Jane_M, Apr 2024
Enjoyed the trip. It gave us the quick view of Sydney we were looking for. Martin the driver was very informative and humorous.
Great introduction to Sydney.
Carol_S, Apr 2024
Great way to see the major sights in a few hours. Short stops but enough time to get a taste of places you might want to go back to explore further. Tour guide was knowledgeable but a little difficult to understand due to a heavy accent. Would recommend.
An easy and interesting way to have a general view of Sydney
VILMA_S, Apr 2024
The guide is very friendly. He gave us a general review about the most important sites of Sydney. The bus is confortable. The time in the sites where we stopped was a little bit short.
Tour great - guide not so much
Valerie_P, Apr 2024
The tour itself was really nice. Great overview of Sydney and some great photo ops. The guide not so much. We were supposed to meet by the fountain 15 min before the tour start, but he didn’t show up till the exact time. (Believe his name was Martin.) His English was not very good at all so it was very difficult to understand what he was telling you. Plus he spoke very fast. By 1/3 of the way through the tour, people were talking to each other instead of listening to him.
Enjoyable morning
Jlene_H, Apr 2024
Enjoyed our introduction to Sydney it was a perfect amount of time after a long flight there. Always happy with our Viator tours.
A memory to remember
SHIRLEY_S, Apr 2024
Mcquire seat. It would be nice if you cover a few more tourists hot spots in your itinerary which would be value for money.
Worth taking the tour
Sandra_M, Apr 2024
Getting to see parts of Sydney you would normally may need a car to get to. You were on a time schedule for each stop but gave you plenty of time for photo opportunities. The drivers accent at times heard to understand but he was knowledgeable and he told a few jokes, even at times explained the Australian slang to the international tourists.
City Bus Tour highlights of Sydney
susan_s, Apr 2024
Our driver was great!!! Really good at telling us the history. Loved how he loaded the bus ensuring the people that need more leg room weren’t cramped in the back and elderly that needed a bit of time to get on and off were able to do so. As usual I think we needed 1/2 hour at the stops and 45 minutes at bondi so you could actually walk on the beach and enjoy it more. What a beautiful city❤️
Itinerary was OK - bus leg room was very cramped. Difficult to understand your guide at times due to his foreign accent.
Sydney at its finest.

Seeing Sydney highlights for a limited time is good. Not much time to see anything else but good experience .
Worth your time
Connie_A, Apr 2024
Bus driver/tour guide shared stories about places we drove by, including their history. The stops were interesting and our tour ran right on time.
Enjoyable tour
Bill_C, Mar 2024
We were able to see more places of interest than expected. The only negative was that it was hard to understand some words of tour guide on bus, but, over all, he did a wonderful jand entertaining job!

Sydney in a few hours.
Deborah_E, Mar 2024
This trip covered all the highlights in Sydney in a few hours, it was perfect our guide was wonderful.
This is not a pleasant trip and the Opera House has been skipped.
Clyde_L, Mar 2024
We ask the driver if on board the bus is according to the names that called when gathering we were the first group called. Our answer was yes, but when start boarding, our names were not called until we asked the driver that we have 3 people that over 80 years old. After our complaint he called our group n let us boarded. But afterward, he talk to people behind him saying that we are difficult people, I asked him what does he meant as we are all very easy going people. In our opinion, this driver do have sense of discrimination.
Sydney sightseeing
Jason_T, Mar 2024
Not much too be excited about the tour - pretty mundane. The driver/tour guide did his best to introduce Sydney legends and stories but the route travelled is not too interesting.
Good overall tour of Sydney
Dale_M, Mar 2024
I would say Bondi Beach. I had heard about it and it lived up to my expectations. However,if you really want people to do these surveys then don't put minimum requirements on the review. Now that you got me going I'll give the reason for only 4 stars. The tour was great as well as the guide. He was knowledgeable and funny but he had such an accent that it was very difficult to understand what he was saying at times.
Fun, grand, & terrific
Andres_M, Mar 2024
Getting to view nice scenery locations. Also, very informative tour guide. Best way to view areas of Sydney in few hours.
