I have been on many tours throughout my travels, including one of Alcatraz, so perhaps my expectations were a bit high; however, my husband, brother, and sister-in-law all agreed that this tour was awful. I'm glad I purchased it via a discount site (thus not paying full price), but even so, would have been better off using the $50 per... More

Had a great time on the Convicts, Castles and Champagne Tour...beautiful day on the Harbour...great views of the bridge and opera house. Lunch was great, good selection of food and plenty of it...the island has wonderful historic buildings and is a treasure. Great walk and informative staff. Sipping champagne with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background...what a great way... More

The day was a most relaxing and enjoyable experience. The staff provided excellent service and ensured all participants were catered for. The provided lunch was of a very high standard and ensured no one went away in need of any further sustenance. It was most surprising that there was more than an ample supply of beverages to ensure every tourist... More

The cruise, tour and lunch were brilliant. It was a beautiful day on the harbour, the view from the lawn of the house on Goat Island where we had lunch was postcard perfect. I said to my partner at the time "there is no place in the world I would rather be right now". Our guide was a cheery, helpful... More

The 2 tour guides were very well informed and very enthusiastic about Goat Island and it's history. I found the walking not at all difficult and great to see such... More

This was our second time doing this tour as its a great way to take overseas visitors on the harbour, soak up some history, eat a lovely buffet lunch and the piece de resistance drink unlimited champagne while looking at the most beautiful harbour in the World! Our guide John had good knowledge of the past history and has a... More
