Great online timetable information to plan your day. Commentary on cruises was great and were on time. Staff from check in to the crew were friendly and helpful. The inclusion of the Taronga Zoo entry at a great discount was a bonus and we had a great day out.

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Murray,

Thank you for the review of your Hop On Hop Off cruise with us on Sydney Harbour. We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your day and that the crew was friendly towards you. We agree to say that planning your day ahead with our online timetable makes you get the most out of your day.

Once again thank you for your review, it is very appreciated.

Kind regards,
Head of Customer Service,
Captain Cook Cruises

Service: Purchased our tickets online and had no problems for the transactions. Appreciated that we were emailed with a PDF timetable as well. On our scheduled day, we forgot to show our email to the Captain Cook office (in the pier) before getting in the boat, but one of the staff (in the boat) took care of this for us and gave us our boat tickets and zoo tickets without a problem. The staff who did the live commentary in our first boat was also kind enough to give us suggestions when we told her our plans for the day

Product: Really happy with this deal because it was a whole day pass. We were also able to get our tickets prior to arriving at Taronga zoo. Finally, if you don't want to wait or waste time, we recommend this company because the lines for the regular boats (via Opal card) tend to pile up in certain docking stations. Timetables are reliable, except when the boat is in line to dock (e.g. if another boat docks ahead). Clean boats too
