Ok. Tour, rain.
Wayne_J, Apr 2024
Driver/guide had good stories. Rained most of tour so sights were ok. Make sure u sit on side away from driver side Not much pic opportunity while riding if u don’t.
Great morning trip around some of Sydney

This is a great way to get some idea about where things are in Sydney but is only long enough to cover a small part of Sydney. Very interesting. Great guide even if we struggled with his accent at times.
Mixed Experience - Tour Guide with Language Barriers
Hugh_H, Mar 2024
Our experience with the tour guide left much to be desired. Unfortunately, his heavy accent and broken English made it challenging to understand him. In fact, his accent was so difficult to comprehend that he avoided disclosing his origin, fearing negative social media attention. Moreover, his request for tips before the tour even began felt uncalled for and uncomfortable. While the sites we visited were generally satisfactory, Rose Bay was disappointing, serving primarily as a bathroom and coffee stop. To compensate for the language barriers, we relied heavily on the printed itinerary from the tour's website, which provided some semblance of guidance. However, we appreciated the guide's gesture of dropping us off at the Sydney Opera House, which was where our next tour started. Overall, while the language barriers detracted from our enjoyment, the tour still had its redeeming moments.
No great photos, just gray and rainy views

Martin was our tour guide and was full of interesting facts about Sydney and amusing anecdotes. However, Martin had an Eastern European accent and several large family groups were talking over him which made it even more difficult to hear on the motor coach. Many sites were just "pass bys." The weather was raining so we had a shortened tour especially at Rose Bay and Bondi Beach which had little to see and enjoy. The Mrs. Macquarie's Chair and these beaches were the only actual walk around stops. Glad it did not cost a lot.

Excellent experience 👏! Martin was clear, engaging and really made for an excellent view of Sydney.
3 hours well spent

Driver tries to be too funny for unexpected reasons
Jehan_A, Jan 2024
Ita a good trip. The bus driver should tone down a bit with his jokes. I had an amazing time learning about the history of Melbourne but I do t thing everyone understands what he was saying
Just okay
Patricia_G, Dec 2023
The sights and stops were nice. However, the tour guide was hard to understand. Need a better microphone system.
Fun tour with great sights
Kirily_S, Dec 2023
We had a great tour experience with Martin. He had the right amount of humour and shared interesting stories about the places we went to. It was a great half day tour.

Javier_R, Oct 2023
We saw places outside the city center that were impressive. We recommend this tour for people who like to see more of Sydney.
Best Value Guided Bus Tour !
Sharon_C, May 2023
A ‘must do’ experience when coming to Sydney. Unbeatable value for 3.5hr tour. Martin, our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of areas we visited and had a fantastic, funny, sense of humour, that made it a really interesting, enjoyable and memorable experience. Great for anyone interested in discovering your favourite areas to perhaps visit and explore in more depth later on. Thanks Martin, l thoroughly enjoyed the trip and your commentary. !😊👏👏
Good overview of Sydney...
Gerard_J, Feb 2023
Good overview of Sydney CBD. Large tour bus with a good size group but tour guide provided a good briefing to insure we were kept on schedule.
Good overview of Sydney neighborhoods
Ignatius_C, Dec 2022
We drove through many Sydney neighbors and the driver did a good job on his commentaries including the backgrounds of places and antidotes. It was a good overview. Starting time at 9:30 am instead of 10:00 am would have been a better choice for planning our rest of the day.
