Sydney Harbour: 20-Minute Coast & Skyline Helicopter flight
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 20 minutes
There was two routes available and buses ran pretty frequently only downside was that some stops were not clearly marked as Big bus stops so made it tricky to find the correct place to be. The cruise was ok but not really much to see. Sydney tower potentially could give a great view of the city but the weather was overcast so we didn’t see very far. The ticket gave entry to an enclosed viewing platform with windows. To go higher and be outside there was a further charge but we didn’t opt to pay. The highlight of the package was the guided tour around the Rocks area of Sydney. The guide was very informative with lots of stories about the past. He took us through some of the back streets which we wouldn’t have realised were there. The walk lasted about 90 minutes and it was a steady stroll so ok for all ages but there were some stairs leading down to the harbour on the route.
Our first flight was cancelled due to smokey haze from bushfires and it was rescheduled for day after and that was right choice and decision. Pilot and staff are very friendly and they will explain everything before the flight. During the flight, pilot explained where are we exactly and where are we heading. We went across famous locations, such as Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo and we flew near the Bondi Beach at 500ft altitude. I recommend this to everyone who visits Sydney!
The driver who collected us from the city in his mini bus was really friendly and the pilot was really nice. He was informative in explaining the history of Sydney and in pointing out all the various landmarks. 20 minutes was a long time and we really enjoyed the experience, especially the initial take off. Well done guys, you made our day very special indeed.
For a two day visit to Sydney it enabled us to see and do everything we wanted. Bondi, Darling Harbour, S. Harbour Bridge, Harbour Cruise The Eye and to cap it all an excellent guided walk around the Rocks. Thoroughly recommend for two days
We were contacted by phone and given a pick up point close to where we were staying. Picked up by Lincoln who was friendly and chatty. Arrived at the airport greeted by friendly staff and offered refreshments whilst we waited.
