  • Customer Reviews
    • It proved to be the best way of exploring the city and surrounds

      It was a late decision to take this option but it almost certainly was one of the best decisions we made. The driver was very informative and numerous with it...

    • An excellent wat to see Sydney in a short time

      Although we had a few problems with the audio system ,they didn't detract fro the overall experience. All in all an excellent experience...

    • With regards to value for money,I expected better fixtures on the top deck. But overall, the experience was still great.

      Grace Dequena, Australia, 06/Nov/2019
    • Parfait pour découvrir Sydney, la visite guidée est intéressante et cela vaut le coup de prendre le pack premium avec Sydney Eye Tower et la croisière dans le port

      Verena Camus, France, 11/Aug/2019
    • This service is really good value and relatively cheap compared to the taxis to get around. Would not have gone to half of the places had it not been for this service...brilliant!
