Low Price Guarantee
A Sydney and Bondi Beach bus tour lets you enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transportation and onboard audio commentary—while exploring the sights at your own pace. Tickets are valid for 24 or 48 hours, so you can hop on and off at attractions like Sydney Harbour, the Rocks, Royal Botanic Garden, and Hyde Park, or simply enjoy the views from an open-top double-decker bus.
What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 34 stops (see itinerary) to validate your 24- or 48-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker buses. Your tickets offer access to both the Sydney and Bondi Beach bus routes, which connect at Cook and Phillip Park, 100 William Street or Central Station stops.
Each circuit takes around 1.5 hours, and you can jump on and off as many times as you like. Perhaps get off at Sydney Harbour to enjoy magnificent views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, take a stroll around Hyde Park or the Royal Botanic Garden, or explore Chinatown. Or visit Sydney Fish Market, watch the surfers at Bondi Beach, and discover neighborhoods like the Rocks and Paddington.
While onboard, don’t forget to plug in your headphones and listen to the audio commentary, which points out all the main attractions along the route, and offers background history and fun facts to help you learn more about the Harbour City.

Typical of all the Big Bus Tours. A great way to get the ‘lay of the land’ in a new cityw

We use this option at any of the new cities we tour in order to get acclimated to the place and map out where we’d like to circle back and visit. I was disappointed that many of the audio jacks on the bus were not...More

Best way to see Sydney

We took the 48 hour premium tour which included the Rocks walking tour. For first time travelers to Sydney, this an excellent introduction to the city and its history.

Great City

Two nice routes around the city and up to the western suburbs. Good - but nauseating music played on the speaker system between commentaries.
