good crew and were only there for the weekend so a real good way to see around quickly. cheers

4/5

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!

23-Jul-2016
5/5

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!

4/5

Service: Difficult to contact by phone for harbor cruises

Product: We had quite a good day - we were disappointed that Shark Island was closed when I specifically checked it was open at time of booking. Also there was some problem with the hop on hop off service and there was up to 60 mins delay and many customers were really aggressive about this. Your staff handled themselves admirably and a I felt quite sorry for the treatment they received.

1/5

Service: We had very bad experience and your website dose not provide good information as how dose the various package works. Your customer service agent was too rude and aha has no etiquette to work the way out for us. We feel cheated and angry on your service and with your staff's attitude.

Product: We bought combination pack for Sky tower and hope on off but there was no specification as how dose it work nor there were correct timings and nor your staff over the phone or in person was courteous or willing to help. In one words Pathetic !
