    Very good tour on a boat around Sydney and chance to explore the sites and see various buildings all from the seat on the river.

    Best way to travel between sites along Harbour while in Sydney. Much quicker than taxi or bus, since no traffic jams out on the water. Extremely picturesque city by water, enjoy!!

    We were able to see all the sights around Sydney and able to spend time at Manly beach. The timetable was easy to follow and allowed for enough time each place.

    We wanted to explore Sydney and we were recommended to take the Captain Cook Hop-on-Hop-off Cruise and we were not disappointed. We went to the Circular Quay and got the actual tickets once purchased on line and took the cruise to Manly Beach. Lots of great stores to shop and bought lots of tshirts etc and the beach was spectacular. We then went to Watson Bay for fish and chips at Doyles. If you want to spend $50 for F&C go to the restaurant but otherwise you can get the same for much less at the take out place and just find a seat. Not much there but if you walk around there are some stunning views. When we took off from Circular Quay we had a great view of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. There were more places to go and we ended up at Darling Harbour Pier. Well worth the cost and the smoke wasn’t bad at all that day.
