Your combo deal includes two separate day tours—a Sydney city tour including Bondi Beach and a Sydney Harbour lunch cruise, and a Blue Mountains day tour from Sydney. When booking, choose the date of your Sydney tour, then take your second tour on any date within the following seven days.
Day 1: Sydney City Tour and Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise
Start your day with pickup from your central Sydney hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned bus, set out to explore the sights, starting with a walking tour of the Rocks. As you walk around the atmospheric laneways, admire the historic buildings of Sydney’s oldest district and learn more about the city’s fascinating past.
Back on the bus, continue your sightseeing tour, passing landmarks such as St Mary’s Cathedral, the Royal Botanic Garden, and Hyde Park; visit Sydney neighborhoods such as King’s Cross and Darling Harbour; and hop out to admire the views from Mrs Macquarie's Chair.
Continue along the coast, passing the affluent districts of Double Bay and Vaucluse, then arrive at the most famous of Sydney’s many beaches—Bondi Beach. Enjoy some free time to soak in the sunshine and watch the Bondi surfers, then return to Sydney Harbour to embark on your boat cruise.
Set sail across the harbor on a luxury catamaran and enjoy magnificent views of Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison, and Shark Island. While onboard, tuck into a delicious buffet lunch, including fresh seafood, tropical fruits, and a tasty dessert.
After two hours on the water, disembark at either Circular Quay or Darling Harbour, where your tour ends.
Day 2: Full-Day Blue Mountains Tour from Sydney
Begin your tour with hotel pickup from your Sydney hotel and set out on the scenic 2-hour journey into Blue Mountain National Park. Enjoy your first glimpse of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed landscapes as you stop for morning tea in the mountain village of Leura, then climb up into the mountains to Katoomba.
Enjoy free time to visit Scenic World (own expense), where you can choose to ride the Scenic Railway, Scenic Skyway, or Scenic Cableway, or walk along the Scenic Walkway—each of which offers dramatic views of the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls, and the Jamison Valley.
Stop for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant before continuing to Echo Point, one of the most renowned viewpoints in the Blue Mountains, overlooking the Jamison Valley and Three Sisters rock formations. Next, visit Featherdale Wildlife Park, where the animal residents include Aussie favorites such as koalas, kangaroos, wombats, wallabies, and crocodiles.
For the final adventure of the day, you are dropped off at the Parramatta River cruise dock and return to Sydney by boat. The scenic cruise is the perfect end to the tour, which takes you to Darling Harbour or Circular Quay.
