Nice and calm boattrip around Syney harbour with a realy frendly and interresting guide and on top of that a very nice lunch buffet. We strongly recommend Syney Harbour Discovery Cruise! or in swedish: den här båtfärden rekommenderar vi skarpt för de som vill se Syneys mest kända attraktioner under mycket trevliga förhållanden.
Excellent value for money !

Dave's commentary was very comprehensive. The buffet lunch was excellent, with a good variety of food on offer. The vessel was comfortable, with not too many passengers and plenty of seating both inside and outside. The bar provided a good selection of drinks and at very reasonable prices. The staff were most friendly, courteous and helpful.
Wonderful way to see and learn about Sydney and it’s harbour

The boat was sparkling clean. The food was delicious and even included huge fresh prawns. No limit on serving sizes or repeat servings. But apart from the spectacular scenery the staff were world class. Rachael was bubbly and eager to assist and the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Went on my own as my wife was hitting the department stores in the city but might just do it again next week with her.
Fantastic cruise

Life is always better on the water!! Great way to see parts if the city and be away from the madness if the roads! But, don't forget your sunscreen!

This is a lovely cruise taking in all of the sights of Sydney harbour and seeing the fantastic houses that surround it. There is a lovely lunch given and plenty of it finished off with a piece of cake and a tea or coffee.
Wonderful experience
Helen_L, Mar 2023
Very relaxing with an excellent choice of food from the buffet, just sit back with a cool drink and enjoy the scenery and great commentary.
Great experience on Sydney harbour
Jean_A, Mar 2023
Great commentary all the way. We wanted to show friends from the USA the beauty and history of Sydney Harbour and this trip certainly did it. The food on offer was terrific and this was altogether a great experience and real value for money
Views of Sydney
Becki_E, Mar 2023
We did this Harbour cruise after returning from a 12 day cruise and it was still a great way to get fantastic views of Sydney and the various areas. Lunch was really good with a nice variety of fresh shrimp, salads and other items.
A great cruise on the harbour
Marilyn_J, Feb 2023
We really enjoyed the lunch cruise. The food was delicious and plentiful. Loved the coffee machine that made specialty coffees. The views on the water were amazing. The only complaint I have is that there are no speakers on the outside of the boat. If you want to take photos you can’t hear the narrator talking.
Would definitely recommend the tour and staff were friendly and helpful

Great view
RICK_S, Feb 2023
Great views and the guide was informative. We enjoyed hearing about the many interesting areas around Sydney!
Don’t waste your time and money
William_L, Feb 2023
The tour disappointed us. There was very little commentary about the sights and the person speaking spoke too quickly. Plus the sound system kept breaking up so we couldn’t hear complete sentences. I don’t know why they don’t play a recorded commentary and give more background. It was a long slow trip so they had plenty of time to share information. Would NOT recommend this tour.
Tour with my cousin
