Cruise offered a surprising number of destinations among Sydney Harbor's 67 bays. We got 2-day pass and were glad we did. Schedules were spot-on and the narrations varied enough from speaker to speaker that even sailing the same route was interesting.

This was a great way to see the Sydney Harbor and get to see many areas we might not have seen. Amazing views of the entire skyline, Two best stops for us were Manley Bay and Darling harbor.

A great way to see the harbor and all the coves and bays. We went to Manly and walked two blocks to the beach to see the surfers. The second day we took the ferry to the Toranga Zoo and spent several hours enjoying the animals, especially the Australian ones. The ferries were a great way to inexpensively get from here to there and all points in between!

The harbor sites were great and the boats were comfortable. Major complaint is that the schedules for the various stops are confusing and limited. Some tours omit one or more of the stops, and it requires considerable study and planning to know where one will actually be able to get on and off.

Great views of the city and enjoyable rides to Luna Park and Manly Beach. I liked having the flexibility to use this over two days. The one thing that would make this better is if it ran later into the evening. Make sure to check the timetables!

Everything was good till the last pickup from the the Darling Harbor. The employee on the last boat gave us incorrect information that there was another boat coming. The store front of the company at the harbor were also of no help and promptly closed the store at 5, leaving us stranded at the harbor. The good thing was that the metro was within walking distance and so we could get back to our hotel without having to take an expensive taxi.

Very upset the boat trip was canceled due to smoke and we got stuck at the opera house and had to walk back to darling harbour with the dad who is 71 year’s of age. When we arrived in darling harbour we went to Thomas cook who offered no refund
