I had a great time last night on the Vivid cruise and I just wanted to thank the lovely girl who was checking us in. I was supposed to be on the blue boat with a friend, but she piked at the last minute due to the rain and my other friends were on the yellow boat, so I would... More

The views were great we had good weather, but you would have gotten the idea just taking a water taxi, at I'm sure what would have been under half the price, saving your money and had a beautiful meal at one of the Quayside restaurants. I didn't even pay for this and I still felt ripped off. If it had... More

poor communication between me and the staff in the phillipines where the calls are directed to. difficult in understanding with times and dates changed for no reason. difficulty in getting parking advise from the girl in the phillipines. lets hope the actual night is a better success.

Fun experience with friends, beautiful views around the harbour, good food and friendly crew. Easy access from near Harbour Bridge. I booked online thru Groupon and got a good deal with open bar and food included. We didn't choose to climb the mast but some people enjoyed the experience. All age groups.

We were given the sunset cruise as a gift. Unfortunately the boat left dock after the sun set. Not surprisingly we were surrounded by tourists but surprisingly there wasn't any information about the harbour or where we were going. There had been storms before our cruise so the ship was pretty wet but it was mostly fine for the 2... More

My Husband and I went on the tall ship the "Soren Larsen". We had a great afternoon, the guide on the ship was great, he knew so much about Sydney Harbour, we've been around the harbour many times and still learnt a lot of facts we'd never heard! The staff came around with some nibbles and there's a bar on... More

Sydney Tall Ship Twilight Cruise + dinner and unlimited drinks. A$60pp. A blissful two-hours spent onboard the Soren Larsen tall ship sailing on one of the world's most beautiful harbours. Decent Australian Angrove wines and food was served. For starters there was chorizo then fetta cheese and spinach triangles. Main meal was an assortment of pasta, cold slaw and potato... More

I initially bought a Groupon for the Pirate ship experience and was told that the date we want, the ship is having maintenance. They then changed it to this Sydney tall ships instead, which wasnt that bad. The weather didnt cooperate, it was raining a bit but they provided disposable rain coats. Buffet food was ok ( i expected too... More

Unfortunately the day we were booked, the heavens opened up with gale force winds. So we did not get to see the tall ship in full sail. The commentary was excellent. Also the bar service and complementary snacks very nice. As the tickets were pre-booked and the company does not cancel due to bad weather, we had no option but... More

Booked our Xmas party last year and they overbooked the boat, lied about it and took advantage of our group booking. GM told me he would get back to me but 4 months has passed and still no contact. They will lie to you and maximise numbers to benefit themselves. Think it would be a great trip if low numbers... More
