Absolutely brilliant! Even my teenagers loved it. Beautiful boat and lovely food. The host had lots of historical information about the boat and Sydney. Sailing past the Opera house and under the Harbour Bridge was breathtaking. We all agreed that it was our favourite activity in Sydney and we had a great time wandering through The Rocks area once we got off the boat. Couldn’t have been a better way to spend an evening.

Thoroughly enjoyed our Hunter Valley day out from Sydney. It was very organised from the start. We had Mark as the driver who was very informative, friendly and helpful. Included in our tour was a chocolate and wine pairing, a cheese and wine pairing, other tastings and talks and also a lunch which I would consider a dinner as it was huge! Very nice. Would recommend

An excellent experience and I would highly recommend it. The boat was of good quality, the food was delicious and drinks were included. Everything was timed perfectly with a great cruise around the harbour and with some interesting and live commentary. A really enjoyable evening

Loved the ferry ride across (despite the windy day we had). Zoo was awesome and the ride back on the ferry was a nice way to finish off. Just wished we had the chance to experience the sky safari (again, the windy day meant this was closed).

The guide tried very hard to keep us entertained despite the miserable weather and poor visibility. He did it!
