After a pleasant dinner out in the Sydney suburb of Neutral Bay, take the great value ride on Sydney ferries from Neutral Bay Wharf, back to Circular Quay in the heart of downtown Sydney. The service runs until 1030pm, and at around AUD6.50 is a bargain. Primarily, it is the WOW! factor you get as the little ferry makes its... More

After confirming with Rosman Ferries that to go on ferry only required turning up at 12.45pm at the Commissioners Steps in Circular Quay, my partner and I did this and joined about 14 other groups of couples and excited families on Sunday afternoon 11th of March. By 1pm, kids were beginning to get restless and with no ferry in sight,... More

Informative and entertaining commentary, even though it was not the regular guide but one of the captains instead. Interesting insights into the many aspects of Sydney harbour that even us locals didn't know about. The 90 minute trip took in the historic Rocks area, moving onto the gorgeous Sydney waterfront suburbs with their impressive real estate, and bypassed the many... More

On holidays with family and friends to Australia and booked the Rosman Ferries History Harbour Cruise. No problem with booking online prior to our arrival to Australia. Great communication with the company prior to the tour. On board, we were offered soda/water and cookies to snack on. The Guide provided excellent information. A great introduction to our stay in Sydney... More

A group of six nearly young folk had the lovliest afternoon on Sydney Harbour in November 2011. The regular tour guide was unavailabel and so we had the benefit of one of Rosman's most experienced captains take us on our tour. His knowledge of the harbour and many many entertaining anecdotes made for a most enjoyable afternoon. The ferry was... More

We've lived in Sydney for years, and we had never took a harbour cruise. We saw the historic cruise on a deal website and thought it would be a great opportunity to see the harbour. It ended up being a great deal! We thoroughly enjoyed the Rosman Historic Harbour Cruise. The staff was very knowledgeable about the harbour's history. The... More

I booked this History Harbour Cruise for my Mum's 90th birthday. We had a lovely day on the harbour and the perfect weather meant Sydney Harbour was at her very best. The host, Kurt, gave a very interesting and informative explanation of all the major attractions and was very generous helping my fragile Mum on and off the ferry. I'd... More

We sent our parents who live in Perth on the History Harbour Cruise, and they loved the day out. They mentioned how informative and enthusiastic the guides were. Thankyou for making our parents enjoy their day so much.
