What people are saying about Darling Harbour

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 178 reviews

Our guide Tom was great. He gave us very entertaining commentary both on the blue mountain region but also in Sydney as we were driving through. Our trip included a ferry back to Sydney. Since ferries were free at that time we were reimbursed the fare which they were under no obligation to do. I highly recommend FJ tours. The blue mountains and 3 sisters were beautiful. The rides at scenic world were a bit lame but can’t be helped. You are already there so may as well take them

Our dinner cruise was a great night on all counts the boat was spotless the meal and drinks where excellent as where the staff and the views around the harbour just stunning l was even given a run through on the sonar and gps steering etc with the captan just a great experience all round .

A journey that is really impressive and worthwhile. A good guide, Jett. And good program items planned in sufficient time

It was a great trip with every stop timed seamlessly. I enjoyed every activity. I met some new friends.

The best customer service, great food! We enjoyed everything
