Depart from Circular Quay in the afternoon aboard the Sydney 2000 or John Cadman 2. Your cruise director gets the party started with a glass of Brown Brothers sparkling wine. It's a great complement to the views of Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, among other landmarks you pass, on this 75-minute excursion.

You have two seating options to choose from: the best available seats on the day of the cruise, or upgrade to be sure you get a spot by the window. As your vessel glides smoothly across the water, get up to grab blinis topped with prawns, whole chocolate-coated strawberries, mini savory pastries, petit fours and more from the stands.

Daughter and I had an amazing time, felt very special, all staff friendly and efficient.

Only criticism would have liked more Home Made food, rather than processed.

Also liked having our own deck to take pic's etc

Defiantly recommend.

Although originally they could not find my reservation, they eventually let me on and it was a blast. Greeted with pink champagne and tours of delicious food, this tour is exactly what you expect! It is quiet and a lovely cruise around the harbor!

This cruise was organised by our children as a 40th wedding anniversary treat. The weather was not great but it did not spoil our enjoyment and it did not hinder the sights. The food was plentiful and very good.

We liked the tour very much, it was very well organised and the staff extermely polite.This cruise should be booked because all tourists should be acquainted with Sydney Harbour and preferably during day time.We were given the best table in the middle of the lounge and in front of the window, I think thanks to Viator, whom I trust very much.There was lot of food and we had two glasses of champagne, maybe because it was the first day of the year. Don't miss it.

I booked this trip for a special treat for my mum's 70th birthday while she was in Sydney with my sister. She thoroughly enjoyed it. They had seats by the window on a lovely boat and had pink sparkly drink as they arrived. They said the food was deliicious and they both enjoyed it. My sister informed the staff it was mums 70th and they brought her a little cake with sparkler and all sang happy birthday to her , including the other passengers which made her day more special. Thank you , great experience.

Wonderful. Simple wonderful! The weather was good, so we had a great view of the harbor and the Opera House. It was everything we dreamed of! and the food, the champagne, the tea, it was all great. and the people were so nice too! Such congenial hospitality and service...

the only minus was that the volume on the commentary was too low for us to hear. But then again, we probably wouldn't have paid attention between the food, drinks and our personal photo sessions. Probably its was better that the volume was not loud, so that it didn't disturb our personal time. I would love to go again, and recommend this to all my friends.

There were lots of choices for the high tea. We had fun cruising around the Sydney harbor and surrounding sights.

The cruise was nice, guests who join high tea cruise have a separate section at the front of the ship the other part remains for regular sightseeing-only cruise. I chose a table with a window seat, and I think this is the way to go if you want to also enjoy the view. During the cruise, you can step outside for photos at any time. Probably not something I would do twice, but it was an enjoyable experience. P.s. Do not expect your table to look as fancy as in the picture though.

I loved the tea, food and the view. Overall I had fun but we were sat next to the door which people kept going in and out of and the door made a load noise every time it was opened. Ruined the experience.
