This was our last full day in Sydney. We took the morning tour and had a great time. The ship was easy to find at Campbell’s Cove. It was a beautiful day. Our tour guide Collin was excellent. He told us all about the island’s history and answered any other questions the guests asked. The crew on the ship was... More

Great time was had by my husband and I. Weather was perfect for our trip to Goat Island. The Boat we sailed on was perfect for this adventure. The people running events where at all times engaging, funny and Helpful. Would recommend this tour. Food was not 5 star but still filled us up and was pleasant. And Esther was... More

We took the Convicts and Castles tour starting with a ferry trip from Campbell's Cove to Goat Island with included Champagne on the voyage. On arrival we were presented with a wonderful lunch, ham and seafood with salad and more champagne. This was followed by a walking tour of the island. Did you know the Poms started to build a...

Great fun on the boat itself plus the tour of Goat Island was fantastic. Crew and guide were top notch. Would highly recommend it.

This was a mid morning cruise which left at 10.15am on the Soren Larsen Tall Ship and during our short trip to Goat Island we were treated to delicious finger foods, champagne and other drinks. On arrival we disembarked for a 1 1/4 hour walking tour of the island. A pleasant and informative time on Goat Island with some magnificent... More

I found this to be one of the better short sightseeing tours I've been on. The tour guide Lorraine was excellent and I learnt far more about the early history of Sydney than I was ever taught as a school student in the local area. A must for those interested in history and I would highly recommend this tour as... More

What a wonderful surprise. I knew nothing of goat island and had a great time learning so many interesting facts. Gaz was a great tour guide and I would happily recommend this tour. A picnic lunch would be a better option than trying to eat on the boat. All the staff on the boat were great hosts. 8th June 14

Fun half day to Goats Island. Unfortunately not far enough to raise sails so were under motor but still fun and beautiful. Free bar. Friendly staff. Brilliant views. Was a bit overcrowded though and the lunch was very disappointing.

This is an exceptional tour and another dimension to add to the collection we already had from from Sydney. Throw in a beautiful day and a great guide (Gaz) it was a great way to spend a few hours in the harbour area. Leaving circular quay it is a short distance to Goat Island, here the guided tour brings alive... More

My husband and I visit Sydney often and were looking for something different to do over Easter. With most other attractions closed on Good Friday - we were surprised and happy to find The Tall Ships "Convicts Castles and Champagne Tour" was open on this day. Friendly, helpful & fun staff (on board and at the office) & good value... More
