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 this package for anyone who wants a very robust but well paced adventure covering almost all of Sydney and beyond. The drivers and guides were all very knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. The tour descriptions and associated costs are explained in detail so you should be prepared. Bring Australian dollars to cover incidentals.

This 2-day combo was a vey good deal. We recently travelled with friends and we were very comfortable and as well as the drivers are on time and very well versed with both the city tour and the Blue Mountain. I appreciate Greg so much for our Blue Mountain tour, he really did a good job with keeping track of everybody and that everybody knows the wheres and the hows of the trip.

Very enjoyable 2 day trip whilst in Sydney with the first day seeing the sights followed by a guided walk around the old buildings in Darling Harbour relating back to the early settlement in the 19th Century. This was followed by a scenic harbour cruise with lunch on board.
The second day was a trip to the Blue Mountains which also was enjoyable even though the temperature was 40C +.
I would certainly recommend this trip for future travellers

Excellent service and well informed and friendly tour guides and drivers, I don’t remember the other gentleman’s first day? Second day we had fun trip with Peter.

Get to know the best of Sydney in two days. The city tour provided a little bit of history along with popular sites for great photo opportunities. The Rocks tour with Joe was fantastic. Both tour guides, Glenn and Peter F, were knowledgeable and engaging. The three sisters Blue Mountain tour was spectacular and nothing beats petting a Koloa and feeding kangaroos at Featherdale Wildlife Park. The guides also provided ideas for other things to do while in Sydney. Great tour.

Day 1 city bus tour and Harbour lunch was great. Bus operator was very informative about the history of the city and highlights by neighborhood and major attractions such as Hyde Park and Bondi beach. The Sydney Harbour cruise was top notch for the meal and views. I would rate this day a 5. Day 2 was the Blue Mountain tour which was also informative. I would rate this day a 4. We enjoyed day 1 a bit more than day 2 but overall very good.

My husband and I took the city tour of Sydney. We especially liked the walking tour Sarah took us on through the Rocks area of town. The day was rainy (which was good for them since the bush fires), but Bondi Beach and Mrs. Maqueries chair area were pretty drippy and gray. The tour was very good though. The lunch cruise was okay. I didn’t like having to pay for a glass of soda pop ( small glass and overpriced). That should have been included. We did like seeing the sights from the water.
Our second day, Blue Mountain, was just okay. We went to an animal park-too hot for the animals. We also went to Scenic World where we had to pay an extra $49 each for a wristband to get in. I’m not sure what we could have done if we hadn’t bought it since we were there for a few hours. This should be folded into the price ( plus it had gone up $10 each since I booked it!) We took a cable car, hiked a bit in the gorge and admired the 3 Sisters. Just an okay trip compared to other trips we took in Australia.

First day was great. Enjoyed seeing the city and harbor. Second day was raining and foggy, but the stop at the animal preserve was very good.
Can’t blame the tour for the weather.
