We took the Morning Sydney City Tour with Magistic Harbour Luncheon Cruise as part of 2 day combo with Blue Mountains tour. Great trip! Stephen, our guide on the city tour was excellent. The trip included a walking tour of the Rocks & the cruise of the harbor. The views were beautiful and the food was delicious. This is a... More

This was a good value cruise – the luncheon buffet was extensive, beautifully presented and most enjoyable. The weather was fine but windy, and sitting outside on the deck was blustery but warm with great views. Sipping wine while seeing the harbour – excellent.

A lovely ambience, mouth-watering delicacies, and most importantly, a very warm and amiable staff. They take customer-service to a whole new level. We were looked after by two extremely pleasant personalities- Mr. Nick Lester and Mr. Tushit Parikh that are the General Manager and Supervisor of the cruise respectively. It was a great to see the Harbour Bridge, the Opera... More

Only just got round to writing up our reviews from Xmas and New year. This was the highlight of the trip. Great evening cruising he harbour, good and drink was good, fireworks in front of the bridge (prime position) were unforgettable. Yes it was expensive for one night for 6 and we probably wouldn't do it again but it was... More

We did a lunchtime cruise last Saturday with our relatives to celebrate my aunty's birthday. We were pleasantly surprised at the food, the comfort of the boat and the service from the staff. The boat was less than half full. Sydney put on a great winter's day for us, cold but beautifully clear. It seemed like every yacht was out... More

Excellent way to see the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. We joined the Harbour Cruise at Darling Harbour and spent the next two hours cruising around the harbour. The food was tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful and even presented my daughter with a small birthday surprise cake. Would happily recommend the cruise to someone who wanted a relaxing... More

Fun trip around the harbour with great views of the bridge and opera house. There are several levels on the cruise so you can get the best view. They also offer dinner cruises in the evenings.

We went on the Majestic VIP Dinner Cruise for the Vivid Festival. We had a lovely table for two by the window - it is allocated seating. We were lucky with the weather as it was a stunning mild night. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive, food was pretty good, the prawns and mussels were a hit and... More

Went on a Harbour dinner cruise last night. Staff were polite but very disorganised. Dinner was buffet style but there was no order for tables to go up to the buffet. The food was nice, nothing out of the ordinary but certainly OK. Dessert was served to tables but not to ours, had to ask for it (otherwise we wouldn't... More
