Sydney: 90-Minute Harbor Cruise with Live Music & Tapas Menu
- Duration: 1.5 hours
I really enjoyed all aspects of the cruise EXCEPT we were left stranded at Manly, after waiting nearly an hour some one rang the office to be informed that the boat had broken down and we would have to make our own way back. Using our Opal cards Cath and I got on the next ferry, we went to your office on Circlar Quay were the gentleman behind the counter was very apologetic and reimbursed our fare. I think if you knew the boat had broken down surly you could have got word to someone at Manly OR send someone over on the fast ferry to inform all the people waiting for your boat, this would have save a lot of ill feeling and complain. I would have scored EXCELLENT if this would not have happened. Bill
We enjoyed our day so we do recommend it. However effectively all the "tour" is is the purchase in advance of the ticket to the zoo, the gondola ride to the top when you arrive at the zoo and the ferry across. All can be bought without problems on the day however the "tour" gives you the piece of mind that you are assured of entry. I wouldn´t really call this a tour as we never saw any tour guides and they weren´t necessary either. It was very useful to just arrive and then you got all your tickets at the beginning and were ready to go.
The GetYourGuide deal was great value for money. Our express ferry with captain cook cruises was prompt and the staff were very friendly. It was wonderful to hear a bit of history about the harbour through the boat staff on the way over to Taronga. The express ferry had numerous return trips running throughout the day as well which was wonderful. The sky safari at Taronga also saved us a lot of time getting into the zoo, which allowed us to have a full day exploring the zoo. This deal is definitely worth purchasing.
If you are looking for a cruise of the Sydney harbor, look elsewhere. The cruise was just back and forth across the harbor to the zoo. The trip to and from the Zoo was great, the zoo was ok, it being one of the hottest days of the summer, many of the animals were in their dens staying cool. The zoo is all up and down hills, strenuous for older folks on a hot day.
Very good service, ferry was on schedule and loved the commentary by the captain on the history of the bridge. Harbour and Opera house. Loved the scenic ride to Taronga zoo.
