My grandchildren and I had a great time traveling on the Hop On Hop Off cruiser. It was a perfect day, sun shining and the views from the top deck were incredible. We spent time in Manly seeing the markets and having morning tea. Then we went to Watson's Bay for lunch at Doyle's on the beach and walked to The Gap along the promenade where we took photos of the city and the views. We finished at Circular Quay where we spent an hour walking around The Rocks and the markets there before heading home on the train. Worth it!

Both Zane and Elodie are amazing hosts. Awesome overview of Sydney Harbour! We really enjoyed this cruise and highly recommend it!

Very friendly staff very informative We didn't get full use for money as we went to Luna park and Taronga zoo over the two days

Great experience in a beautiful day. I was really happy and satisfied with the trip.
