Our tour did not include a walk in Chinatown as it started to rain; however, the rest of the tour was exceptional, mainly due to the driving skills and knowledge of John S, our driver and guide. We had several photo stops including a stop to see two iconic Sydney structures: the Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera. I liked John's background on neighborhoods and Bondi Beach. The view of the harbor entrance was majestic. The tour ended about noon at the Circular Quay giving us time to grab lunch before continuing to the Opera. The tour was great, but there were limitations on what and when we could photograph.

With only staying in Sydney for 3 days we decided to do the 'touristy thing' and join a tour. I'm so glad we did. Grey - Line picked us up from out hotel on time, and their coach was top of the range. The driver was knowledgable and comical at the same time. We visited The Rocks for a walking tour with another guide who 'knew his stuff inside out' and made sure we kept to time so we could meet the coah to continue the tour further. As well as seeing the sights such as The Opera House and the Harbour Bridge we also drove through several neighbourhoods and were told the history of the areas and the modern day info, such as cost of living etc - which was very intersting. We chose to then take a lunch cruise on the harbour - the boat was large and well maintained and the food was lovely. We dropped on with good weather and were able to sit up top in the sun even thoughy it was the middle of winter. Overall a great day which I'd definitely recommend to anybody who hasn't much time to see all the sights individually.

It was a lovely day and the tour guide was great. The walking tour of the rocks was very informative I would definitely recommend adding the Opera House tour upgrade.

we were with Greyline tours, they picked us up on time, the guide was friendly and informative we enjoyed the trip which gave us or barings of the city on our first morning. We had a short wolking tour included down in the rocks area, a lot of history down there, we were taken round all the sights and over to Bondi beach, we opted for the aditional harbour cruise with lunch. This was very nice, the food was plentiful and tasty including seafood salads, beef chicken vegetables, something for everyone really. drinks were extra. from the Wharf you make your own way back to your hotel. An enjoyable first day in Sydney. Thanyou Greyline.

Tour was great, although the Opera House supplement was disappointing. While the Opera House was a great experience and a must-see, the guided tour was horrible.
• Submitted 04 Jan 2018
Enjoyable, reasonably priced orientation tour, the high points being an interesting walking tour at The Rocks, the old part of the city built to a large extent with convict labor, and a park stop with nice views of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge. The Bondi Beach stop, said to be an iconic location, was a bit boring. Rather empty, few surfers and no waves, and not many shops. I'm sure it's a matter of timing. Wish we had time for the upgrades, as they would have been very interesting. Tour operator did hotel pick-up in the morning, but no drop-off afterwards, so you're on your own getting back to your hotel.
