We were told we were to sail on a tall ship to Goat Island only to be told at the at the jetty we would be on a ferry. We were very disopointed but decided to go anyway. What a letdown. The old ferry was was very dirty & the carpet was disgusting & the so called delicious buffet was... More

This tour is a must for any Australian - it provides a real insight into the history of a country in its infancy and is presented very well. Noting the comments on Trip Advisor from others, agreed the state of the boat is a little run down - which is not a criticism, in fact it runs with the theme... More

This was a gift from our family for Xmas. We were told initially that we would be going on a Tall Ship but upon booking found out it would be a ferry, ok we accepted that. On the day of our tour (Saturday 27 June, 2015) the ferry arrived, what a shock. The interior needs a total refurb. The carpet... More

We were given this tour as a birthday present by our kids & we were blessed with a nice sunny afternoon for the occasion. Lunch was included in the tour consisting of salad, cold slaw, potato salad & a selection of warm meats - chicken, beef & pork. The cold items were adequate but the meats left a lot to... More

This was a great tour, our guide was full of information regarding Goat island and the history surrounding Sydney Harbour. The Wangi Queen is a little old but it was fun to board and travel on the old ferry. Food was good the open bar was well equipped with beer, wine and soft drinks. The crew were all very friendly...

As a family of 4, we did enjoyed this cruise yesterday (9/4/15). Colin our guide was fantastic and I thoroughly commend him and the rest of the staff for their friendly and obliging service. Yes, the trip was on the Wangi Ferry & to those who don't know this old lady, don't be too harsh. We had a small mixed... More

Sounds like we may have been on the same trip as the previous reviewer. We did this tour on Easter Sunday. The boat looks and feels like it's on its last legs and the lunch was certainly not "a delicious lunch" as advertised. It consisted of a bread roll, a few lettuce leaves & stewed shredded beef or pork. Very... More
