Overview
See the best of Sydney on a half-day tour that provides first-time visitors with a comprehensive overview of the vibrant city. Explore the Rocks and Chinatown, then gaze upon the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour, and Sydney Harbour Bridge from Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair. Wrap up the morning with a stop at Bondi Beach, or optionally upgrade to include a harbor lunch cruise or Sydney Opera House tour.
Highlights
  • Comprehensive city tour that includes stops for photos and short walks
  • Experience Sydney’s history in the Rocks and surfing scene at Bondi Beach
  • See the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House from new perspectives
  • Upgrade for a Sydney Harbour lunch cruise or a Sydney Opera House tour
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, start your tour with a walk around the cobblestone streets of the Rocks, site of Australia’s first European settlement. Learn how Sydney has changed over the centuries, and hear about the Gadigal people—the original Aboriginal inhabitants and landowners of Sydney.  Next travel to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair and get fabulous photo ops of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Continue to Bondi Beach, where you can disembark for views of the Pacific Ocean and a look at the lifeguards who inspired the popular TV show “Bondi Rescue.” Make another photo stop at Dudley Page Reserve, then go through Chinatown on the way back to downtown Sydney, where your tour ends at King Street Wharf or Circular Quay. Upgrade to add a buffet lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour or a tour of the Sydney Opera House—both essential experiences for any visit to Sydney.

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to review our tours. We are so glad to hear that you had a great time on board with Glenn! We will definitely pass on your feedback to him and I'm sure he will be very appreciative. As the tour is only a half day, we do try to fit in as much as possible and provide a taste of the city to our guests so they are then able to go back and explore the areas that interested them further. However, I will pass on your feedback to our operations team for their reference. Thanks again and we hope to see you on board with us again soon. Kind Regards, Gray Line Sydney Team

I was looking for a tour that wouldn't take all day, but would still be memorable! We were pretty tired from our trip and wanted something a little more laid back. My husband and I truly enjoyed the guided tour. I felt like we got to spend a decent amount of time at each
