Product: Our ferry cruise around Sydney harbour was definitely the highlight of our trip! Though I am not sure why it is called a "24 hour" when the last ferry was at 6:30. Still a great way to see the sights! And the price that included the taronga zoo was a great deal!

Service: We were told another boat would be coming in 15 minutes. After over an hour of waiting we finally gave up and ended the tour. Very frustrating! I know we were in the right spot as many other people were waiting as well and a staff member told us exactly where to wait.

Product: nice time but no wheelchairs available!

Boats didn't not show up on time. Took a while to get costumer service on the phone, then I was put on hold for a long time and the answer was rude and unhelpful

Service: Schedule says last pickup at Jefferey Luna Park 4:30pm on 12/29/16. Waited till 5:20 still no boat. Called their office with no answer because they close at 5. Had to spend $65 to get Uber. Went back couple days later and they refused to admit mistake. Will not even consider partial refund.

Service: Information about needing to find the office at Darling Harbour before you find the pier needs to be more prominent.

Product: I used 3 different services during the day. One between Taronga and Manly had very, very poor sound system quality which I think detracted from the experience. The trip back on a smaller boat was much better quality sound and the person providing the commentary was knowledgeable and made the trip very interesting.
