Excellent way to get to know the city, and to get around Sydney, it really takes you everywhere. The staff is also very friendly, excellent timing for the commentary for most drivers as they even stop for the pictures sometimes. Although one of them seems...More

I found that it was better and easier to just walk to all the places covered by the bus in central Sydney (did not do the Bondi route). You don't see that much more from the bus and it is quite expensive for what you...More

I bought my pass before arriving in Sydney. It included passes for 2 days on the bus, a cruise on the harbor and entrance to the tower. With only two days to see and do as much as possible in Sydney, this turned out to...More

If you are in Sydney and have no clue how to map out the attractions and route your way through the city go for the Big Bus Sydney. Which is what we did. Now that we know what it is, I would recommend a bit...More

A great way to see and visit some of Sydney's most iconic sites. The open air top deck is fantastic- with great views. Just a shame it doesn't stop at Watson's Bay. Interesting commentary and great Australian music played through earphones.

Don't do on sundays or maybe other days. Waited over an hour on Bondi Route. Picked up and driver refused to stop until back at station. No commentary available. Aggressive driving. No fun at all. Switched to red route. Got off at Darling Harbour. After...More

Not worth the money. Limited commentary. Waits an hr at Bondi Beach for pick and again a really long time at Darling Harbour. Would not recommend this tour at all.

The bus tour is OK if you can't be bothered to tackle public transport. The commentary on headphones is quite dull and some locations on the route are pretty pointless and remote! I suppose it can be quite useful to get your bearings quickly, but...More

Highly recommend the big bus Sydney tour. Just back from Sydney and this is definitely the way to go. I have been to Sydney on numerous occasions and this is my first time doing this tour. I visited parts of Sydney that I never saw....More

It is a good way to see Sydney. I took both - the Red and Blue Route. They were always on time. But it‘s a little expensive.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
