Sydney's best sightseeing cruise has just got even better! The Harbour Story Premium Cruise offers an entertaining and personalised commentary of the people, places and events that have made Sydney Harbour the most beautiful and exciting in the world, with premium inclusions. The Harbour Story Premium is more than just a cruise. It's a glass of sparkling wine by the sails of the Sydney Opera House. A machiatto under the Harbour Bridge. A fine blend of tea with the rich and famous. A delicious afternoon tea listening to the stories of Sydney's most amazing characters. Morning and afternoon cruises depart daily, except Sunday morning when our full breakfast cruise operates ...  

If you only have an afternoon in Sydney, and you need to create a memory to last a lifetime, you can't go past the Harbour Story Premium. Experience the most beautiful harbour in the world, aboard premium vessels specially designed for Sydney, all accompanied a glass of sparkling wine, coffee to order, fine teas and a delicious sweet and savoury afternoon tea selection.

The Harbour Story is the newest and most entertaining sightseeing cruise in Sydney. It combines the old and the new, the fun and the amazing, the sights and the characters, all told through a series of stories and insightful commentary. Learn a little, laugh a little and maybe even shed a silent tear. Most importantly you will leave feeling like a part of our Sydney family.

We guarantee every cruise includes Sydney's iconic landmarks such as the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Royal Botanic Gardens, Garden Island Naval base, Taronga Zoo, Government House, palatial waterfront homes, Fort Denison and much more. The pace is relaxed and gentle, giving you plenty of time to capture the perfect selfie.

We all enjoyed the cruse. The views were really good and the person talking had a good lot of knowledge and was entertaining. The food and drink provided was fine as well.

Service: The overall experience was great, I bought the premium ticket (at the price of the basic, online) and it was totally worth it, we could pick the seats first than everybody, got a glass of champagne, good coffee and a lot of biscuits (very good), the crew was very friendly, the story they were telling on board really interesting, is not just the Opera House, but they show you all the houses of the Harbour, the beaches, etc. it was everything they promised and more, besides there where plenty of available room and everyone was very polite

I would recommend it

Product: very easy to buy and the price for buying online even better!

Service: Very nice route and informative and friendly guide.

The cakes packed in plastic included in the premium cruise is not really worth the extra money. Food/beverages were not impressive.

Still, the guide was perfect and we had a great experience

Product: Food/beverages included was not worth the value.

Good cruise!

I find it hard to understand when the product you are selling is a visual experience that the viewing portals I.e the windows on the boat are so dirty. I have taken several overseas visitors on your premium cruise this summer and each time the windows have been filthy. How hard can it be to have the windows clean !!!!!

Relaxing and informative tour of our very own Sydney Harbour. The story behind our settlement and the various bays and pockets of the harbour is told in an entertaining way as you sail around in a large, comfortable cruise boat enjoying a delicious afternoon tea.

The cabin crew and ticket sales staff are all very friendly and hospitable. I would recommend this cruise for visitors to Sydney and for those who have been around for longer who would like to learn a little more about their own back yard!
