My buddy and I did this excursion while travelling through Sydney and we were blown away. Not only was it informative and cool to see everything up close but it was so much fun. We have both travelled around the world and agreed that this was the best way to run a tour. The

Such a nice thing to do in Sydney! Enjoyed every minute of our two hours trip! Also the best way to make superb photos of the Operahouse and the Bridge. But of course the funniest and biggest experience is taking the waves!! ;-)
