Service: Was okay- workers were friendly.

Product: Could have more flexible times- it was hard to see some places as you were stuck there for a couple of hours until the next ferry- made it tough to see everything.

Service: First trip went well, but on Circular Quay, we stood beside an entry sign and missed the boat. Looked like many others had the same problem. Probably that was an entry sign to the ticket sale. However, the place looked like an entry to the ships!

Product: Perfect views on a nice boat!

Outside, it was hard to hear (esp. as many are not native in English) the probably good LIVE broadcast!

Service: The experience was very good, but the service at the desk to begin with was not the best. We were given the information we needed but it felt like we were an inconvenience.

Product: Thank you for the ride!
