2-Day Combo: Sydney City Tour, Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise and Blue Mountains Day Trip
Reviewed by: Kevin F, May 2014
A good value for the two tours that are included. The Blue Mountains day trip was excellent with a stop in a small town for tea, a visit to Scenic World, with views of the Blue Mountains and the rain forest, and a visit to Echo Point for a close-up view of the Three Sisters. The Sydney tour was nice with stops to view the city from different parks, a short tour of the Rocks district, and a visit to Bondi Beach. The lunch cruise is OK and I would recommend it if you are not doing any other harbor cruises.

This 2 Day Tour was perfect for us to see as much as possible in the 3 days in Sydney before our cruise. We had an early pickup, 7:15am from the Sydney Harbour Marriott, on both days, on time. The city tour gave us a glimpse of all the best sites and different areas of the city. The commentary on the coach was interesting by a very nice guide. Important to me was the cleanliness of the coach ,I hate trying to take pictures out of dirty windows! We visited Bondi Beach, advertised as Australia's most famous surf beach. Not crowded at this time of the year and a nice walk on the boardwalk and in the sand. Our 2 hour Sydney Harbor tour by catamaran started at Darling Harbor. We had an excellent seafood buffet and everything on the boat was very clean, including the restrooms. The cruise took us under the Sydney bridge, great view from the outside deck, of the Opera house and Fort Denison. Tour ended at Darling Harbor, but we were told to stay on if we needed to go to Circular Quay, a couple minutes walk from our hotel. The next day was a real treat to visit the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains! Seeing the famous three sisters and Jamison Valley, closer look at Echo point. A little confusing with the crowds and 3 different rides, the very steep incline railroad, the cable car and skyway, at Scenic World, but walked on the valley floor, interesting with relics of the area's coal-mining past. Rides were not included in tour price. The private collection of native animals and birds at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Especially, so close and personal with the koalas and kangaroos. Stopped at Waradah Aboriginal Center with performers in traditional paint and costumes, explaining and playing the didgeridoo.Visited a quaint mountain village called Leura and ended with a visit at Homebush Bay, 2000 Olympic Game Site. Dropped back at the hotel at 6 pm. A very full and long day, worth every penny! Couldn't have seen and experienced so much on our first visit to Sydney without ya!

This is a great trip to do. The city tour was great taking in all the best sights of the city, then you go on the lunch cruise which takes you under the Harbour Bridge, great views of the Opera House too. The buffet lunch was great for us adults, Seafood, rice, curry, salads etc but not a great deal for my fussy 9 year old, although she did like the puds. The Blue Mountains trip was fantastic, loved it and so did my 2 children. Stopped off at Leura for morning tea, which was a lovely quaint village. Try and include the Scenic Skyrail Cableway etc, if you don't have it you can always purchase it there. Riding worlds steepest railway was really good fun, the cable car back up was great too. Went to Echo Point to see the "3 Sisters" views were absolutely stunning. Defo recommend this trip.

The Blue Mountains with the cable car, railway and Skyway rides was awesome. The Featherdale sanctuary was a great place where they allow you to take pictures right next to the Koalas and Kangaroos without charging like the other parks do. The Sydney city tour and Harbour lunch is a must do.

Great 2 day experience. We only had 3 full days here and this was perfect. We could have spent more time at the wildlife park because there was so much to see. Steven, our tour director, was great. I would definitely recommend this tour.
