This was a terrific way to start our Sydney vacation. The woman who voiced our Harbour PM Tour did an excellent job-- she could read a phone book and still sound great.

Service: I was able to entertain a group of overseas visitors on Harbour Story and they were not disappointed. The combination of stunning harbour views and fascinating, factual commentary really impressed my guests. Refreshments were available, thrown in with the ticket price.All in all a great experience. Who would have thought that Sydney’s history was so incredibly interesting?
Product: The Harbour Story experience tells the fascinating history of “The Finest Harbour in The World” The views are stunning, the vessel is comfortable and the guide extremely engaging and passionate about her topic. The refreshments were readily available and quite adequate

We had a lovely time on the cruise, quite comfortable and lots of room to move about. We were given a very informative commentary by staff throughout the cruise.

Service: polite, friendly staff - it all ran smoothly and the cruise was wonderful

my only suggestion would be some cover outside - we are the highest country in the world for melanoma - overseas visitors were getting burnt. We stayed inside.
Product: Easy and quick, staff were very helpful
