The best day we had in Australia

The absolute best tour we did in all of Australia. Seeing the city from the sea is such a great experience, especially with such a fantastic guide that Sydney Harbour Boat Tours provided us with. He showed is so many amazing places that you won't be able to see by foot. A must do in Sydney!
Unforgettable Sydney Experience

We had the most beautiful, relaxing harbor cruise with our two daughters, 9 & 14. Fantastic personal service and just the right amount of great storytelling.

Excellent and thoroughly recommend this lunch cruise . Elodie and crew were really attentive. The afternoon was very interesting and informative as well as great fun

We had the most fabulous day with Elodie and Zane who were both delightful guides/skippers. Their local knowledge made the trip so interesting. Loved seeing the idyllic homes on the harbour, had a great lunch at one of Sydney’s amazing harbour eating spots, and thoroughly enjoyed the stops at local beaches. Although the trip is a little more money than the average trip, we definitely thought we had value for money and absolutely would recommend to other travellers to do this as it was a fantastic day out with truly professional and engaging staff.
Great experience

Fantastic 4-hour tour! Turned out to be just my daughter and me. Elodie was a fabulous tour guide. Terrific personality and very knowledgeable of Sydney Harbor and all the sights surrounding it. The boat was very clean and comfortable and the ride was very smooth – even for someone with motion sickness. It was a great experience and I highly recommend the Sydney Harbor Tour company for an unforgettable trip around Sydney Harbor.
