Book your Sydney city tour and Sydney Harbour luncheon cruise for the date of your choice, then make your booking for the Blue Mountains day tour for the consecutive day or a date within seven days of your Sydney city tour. With this combination of top tours, you get to experience much more of Sydney and the Blue Mountains while enjoying great savings.
Day One: Morning Sydney City Tour and Sydney Harbour Luncheon Cruise (6 hours)
After pickup from your centrally located Sydney hotel, start your half-day Sydney city tour aboard a comfortable air-conditioned coach. Head to The Rocks for a short walking tour around the historic neighborhood where Sydney began. Then drive by the Sydney Opera House, Hyde Park, St Mary’s Cathedral, Royal Botanic Gardens, Darling Harbour, Kings Cross and much more while listening to commentary from your knowledgeable guide.
Enjoy many photo ops, including a stop at Mrs Macquarie's Chair for superb views of Sydney Harbour and the skyline, before driving through the exclusive suburbs of Double Bay and Vaucluse en route to Bondi Beach, one of Australia's most famous beaches. Have 30 minutes at your leisure to stroll around Bondi Beach before returning to Sydney to meet your boat for the luncheon cruise.
Board your catamaran for the relaxing 2-hour cruise, which includes a seafood buffet lunch with fresh local seafood, hot and cold dishes, desserts and fruit. From the catamaran's expansive decks, take in all the sights of Sydney Harbour, such as Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Fort Denison while learning the history of Sydney Harbour and its present-day highlights. Your tour finishes when you disembark at Circular Quay or King St Wharf, Darling Harbour.
Day Two: Blue Mountains Day Trip (10 hours)
Start with morning pickup at your Sydney hotel for your day trip to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park. Accompanied by an experienced guide, travel aboard a comfortable coach on a 1.5-hour drive to Leura for morning tea. Take the tree-lined Cliff Drive to arrive at Katoomba Scenic World and have time to ride on any of Scenic World’s three attractions (at own expense) or simply stroll along elevated walkways through lush rainforest. Next, purchase lunch at a restaurant that overlooks the Three Sisters rock formations and Jamison Valley, before heading to Echo Point for another view of these iconic sights.
On your way back to Sydney, stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park where you can opt to hand-feed kangaroos, wallabies and emus then have your picture taken with a koala. Finish the day with a relaxing cruise down the Parramatta River to Sydney Harbour. Tour will conclude at either King Street Wharf in Darling Harbour or at Circular Quay.

I highly recommend visitors take advantage of this 2-day tour. It was very enjoyable and was everything I expected and more! Surprisingly, there were only 3 of us that were on the day tour that extended it to include the lunch harbor cruise. Take advantage of this lunch cruise. It was very good food, and you got up close views of the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbor Bridge, etc. The Blue Mountain trip was well worth spending the day there. Lots to do on all of the stops along the way. Thoroughly enjoyed both days!

My husband and I had just 2 days to spend in Sydney, and this was the best way to see the city and country. The drivers and guides were very informative. Enjoyed Blue Mountains very much as well as Featherdale animals.

Tours are well organized and well run. Enjoyed all the trips and have seen more than expected. Also appreciated the email info for getting to the meeting hotel , Vibe, from our hotel, Best western, Stellar. That eliminates stress before going on the trips.

This is an excellent tour conducted by Gray Line Tour. The guide, Peter, was very professional at his job. He provided a wealth of information, not just about the tour, but life of Sydney residents. He drove a big touring bus on Day 1 and even a bigger double decker on Day 2. With all the passengers aboard, there was no issues with people itinerary since there are different options for each tourist. Peter not only provided us with the information for each spot, but also field questions from us.

City tour was poor and guide was so, so. Too many languages on bus, so we could not hear the english because the language system was broke. Should of put them together away from the English.
Dat 2. Blue Mountains was great with a real leader.

The itinerary was great for all of the stops over the two days. We ran into issues on the city tour with a second tour guide talking in another language to a small group of passengers and she was loud enough that we could not hear the bus driver's narrative. The harbor lunch cruise was very nice. The Blue Mountains tour had a double-decker bus but the assigned seats we had were right across the aisle from the bathroom - terrible design. There was no way to see out the right side of the bus. Luckily there were two empty seats to the back of the lower level so we moved back there. We had signed up before some friends of ours did and they were placed in the top deck - nothing blocking the views up there. How they assign seats was very questionable.

Day 1 - As a 1/2 day tour this was excellent, very interesting and the inclusion of the city and harbour tour + lunch was well worth the cost. The driver was very informative and helpful.
Day 2 -The Blue Mountains were beautiful, however the day packed in too many attractions / sights, which meant you had little time at each one. This was compounded by some guests being late so further reducing the available time. Would recommend the Blue Mountains but not this full day.

We only had two full days to explore Sydney and chose this 2 day combo. The city tour and lunch cruise ended around 2 pm which did allow some free time on day 1 to explore on our own. The 2nd day tour to the Blue mountains lasted about 12 hours with a 7:15 pick up from hotel until arriving back in the city around 7 pm. It was a bit long for us for the day and the long ride to the mountains wasn't worth the time for us personally. Compared to the Rocky Mountains, it wasn't so impressive for us as we live in the US. I also wish we had more time at the Wildlife stop. The tour company is well run and the tour guides are professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The only thing we missed out on was a tour of the Opera House which we thought was included when we signed up. Turns out it is a separate tour from this one.
