My boyfriend and I, who are in our 20s, undertook this tour with my parents who are in their mid 50s. We all had a fantastic time: the ferry was beautiful, our tour guide John was amusing and informative, the crew were engaging and very customer service orientated, and the sights of the harbour and Goat Island were absolutely stunning....

Yesterday my husband and I boarded a boat for a boat tour. No, we boarded a boat for a really great day out, this tour has a bit of everything. What could be better than to be on the harbourunder the bluest of skies. We moored at Goat Island and set off with our guide to learn about Sydney's convict... More

Lots of "bubbles" (or beer if you desire) on board boat (this time Eastern Star) - can't take any grog between boat and dining area. Don't don your high heels - walking shoes are a must. If you are caring for someone in a wheel chair ensure you are in good condition to push up short but quite steep hill... More

They made Aboriginal, Colonial and more recent historic events come to life through... More

I took my 89 year old Auntie on this cruise for her birthday and what a great day we had. I don't live in Sydney and it was a lovely sunny winters day and the harbour looked beautiful. The crew were very informative and helpful. Would recommend this tour without reservation.

There is no better start to an enjoyabgle day on the harbour than with a glass of champagne served by friendly staff as you cruise towards Goat Island. Our guide Craig was very informative with the history of the Island and ensured that there were plenty of photo opportunities. Surprisingly he had a good singing voice when demonstrating the acoustics... More
