Make the most of your time in Sydney with a morning or afternoon sightseeing tour that crams all the city’s best bits into just four hours. Snap photos of Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge; visit the glamorous Bondi Beach; stroll around The Rocks and Paddington; and take in the views from Mrs Macquarie’s Point.
What to Expect
Begin your Sydney sightseeing tour with pick-up from your hotel and head straight into the heart of the city. Your first stop is one of Sydney’s oldest districts, The Rocks, where you’ll have chance to stroll the cobblestone lanes and learn more about the city’s notorious convict history from your guide.
Next, head to the waterfront to admire views of two of Sydney’s most famous landmarks – the magnificent Sydney Opera House and the towering Sydney Harbour Bridge. Continue past the gigantic QVB shopping mall to the central shopping boulevard of Oxford Street, stopping along the way to take photos of the Centre Point Tower, Sydney’s tallest building.
Enjoy a glimpse of cool and cosmopolitan Sydney as you pass through the hip Paddington district, then continue to the coast at Tamarama. Stop to soak up the scenery along the coastal walk between Tamarama and Bronte, and enjoy dazzling views across the Pacific from atop the sea cliffs.
Arrive at your next stop, Bondi Beach, one of Sydney’s busiest beaches, and hear how it became famous as the setting for reality TV show Bondi Rescue. Jump out to stroll along the beachfront promenade, watch the bronzed surfers and Aussie lifeguards, and perhaps enjoy a cool drink or an ice cream (own expense). Before you leave, take a detour through neighboring Dover Heights, where you’ll enjoy a stunning panoramic view of Sydney.
Finally, head back to the city via the lively neighborhoods of Double Bay and Kings Cross, and stop for a final photo opportunity at Mrs Macquarie’s Point, looking out over Sydney Harbour.
After an action-packed half-day adventure, either end your tour at either Darling Harbour to join an optional lunch cruise or seaplane tour around the Harbour or at Circular Quay.

Great tour..very entertaining

We were picked up in downtown and whisked to the suburbs where super neighborhoods and bays awaited. Great sights and history..beaches and parks. A great way to see Sydney when you don't have a lot of time.

Afternoon Half Day Sydney City Sightseeing Tour

We were somewhat disappointed in this tour. The driver was over 20 minutes late to pick us up at our hotel. We had to go back inside and have the Concierge try and find him. He was waiting at another hotel for guests that never...More

Go in the morning

Wherever you go, a city tour always helps to see as much as possible within 1 day. I think we saw most of what we wanted to see or hear about. The bus was full, that's why we decided to hop on too and get...More
