We had a lovely Harbour experience and learned a lot about early life on Sydney Harbour when we visited Goat Island. The 3-hour cruise and island visit was worth the money. The food was ok, the champagne and staff great. Worth the money.

Brendan our guide was fantastic, very knowledgable about all aspects, polite and very welcoming. All crew were lovely, food great and so was the bar. A fabulous trip and learned so much about Sydney, convicts and baby sea gulls!

My girlfriends and I wanted to try something different during our recent visit to Sydney as it is not our first. When we saw the deal on this tour, we wanted to give a go. It was truly an enjoyable experience and our tour guide was really knowledgeable. He made the tour really interesting and fun. Plus, the first thing... More

You should not miss this tour if you are visiting Sydney. This tour is so informative about how the English settlement first in Goat island. The tour guide is so experience. There are lot of historical building around the island and it took us about more than an hour to tour the whole island. This tour included meal and wine... More

My husband and I joined the Convict, Castles and Champagne tour on Sunday and were welcomed onboard the "Southern Swan" by Brendon and Esther and a glass of bubbly. A 20 minute trip to Goat Island (although not under sail), provided plenty of opportunity for taking pics of Sydney's most famous icons (Harbour Bridge, Opera House, ferries, Luna Park, etc)....

We had a fantastic time on the cruise, we were split into groups and were lucky enough to be put with Esther, who was very informative and funny. Great trip for the whole family to enjoy, the weather wasn't the greatest, but the crew made the most of it and kept us entertained. I'd highly recommend this tour.

Yes a "Tall Ship" but of course not under sail which would have been nice. Knowledgeable guide for Goat Island landfall and the bubbles were plentiful - if you had time. Lunch was OK - but as you are perched on a bench seat , a bit difficult to juggle plate, cutlery and glass! Overpriced for what you get.

Just wanted to mention that we had a fantastic day, and that people need to get on this tour. We found the tour so informative. I didn't realise there was so much history to be told on the Island. We found the crew+ tour guides Craig and Esther such a delight, Esther such a laugh :) and the food was... More

This was a birthday surprise for my husband and we had an absolutely awesome day! I had not yet been on a cruise around the harbour and the views from the higher level seat on the tall ship reminded a person just how beautiful Sydney is and how privileged we are to live here! Sitting back in the sun with... More
