We did this experience as a team building for work, and it was SO much fun! At first I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy VR, but I am so happy we chose to do it - I haven't laughed so much in such a long time! The guys working in there were also super nice & took some funny photos for us. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone!

Even though I am a resident of Sydney I decided to take my kids on the tour. I highly recommend the tour. The kids loved the sitting up top. I enjoyed the various sites and learning more about the history.

We enjoyed the bus tour very much. But I would suggest you do the two day tour if you have the time. We couldn’t see as many sites as we wanted on the one day ticket.

The tour great, highly recommend doinit. Great way to see and learn about Sydney.Had a few issues with
