Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We thought this was a great way getting around Sydney on an open top bus taking it all in, and listening to the commentary which was interesting and useful. Just found it difficult to spot the stops and waiting in between a bit frustrating. But once on the bus we used a few stops and went to Bondi beach which was lovely. Wish had gone longer than 4 pm which was the last bus time. to use. so could have got more out of it as felt what we paid was too much for the few places. We went. When said could use 24 hours. But all in all enjoyed the experience.

    Fabulous trip, the weather was a little bit rough but it was fine. We saw 2 females and their calf’s. The boat managed to track them but not getting too close. The guide was very knowledgeable and she was happily to take questions. We had missed our original planned trip due to traffic jam, so make sure you get there in plenty of time, but they were very helpful and rearranged. We would definitely recommend them

    Thank you very much, I enjoyed my day at Taronga Zoo, which has a wide range of animals and is excellently curated enabling visitors to learn a lot. My favourite animal sightings were the tigers, elephants, koalas and kangaroos.

    This one of the best boat cruises I have done by a long shot. Ron was a great host and gave a great overview of all places around the harbour and more. He answered all our questions and had a great sense of humour. I would recommend to all.

    Our host Korhan created a beautifully orchestrated day that allowed us to see so many areas that we would not have been able to experience on our own or with other tours. He allowed us to set the pace that worked for us which made this day spectacular. He picked us up at our hotel, arrived early and greeted us like longtime friends. Was able to provide Indepth historical information during the entire day. He also acted as our personal photographer with wonderful pictures of all areas visited. My wife and my self would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great all-around historical day trip.

    Only superlatives come to our mind. Excellent cruise and guide. Breathtaking views of Opera House, Harbour Bridge & Sydney while on the cruise. This is perfect for someone not planning to have a lunch or dinner on the cruise and just looking to enjoy a 1 hour cruise with a beautiful sunset. You will be provided with light snacks which is just enough to keep you going while on the cruise. I would definitely recommend this as worth the money.

    We really enjoyed this all day tour! Aimonn from AEA Tours was our tour guide and he did an excellent job of providing very interesting commentary and information throughout the day.
    We really enjoyed the Calmsley Hill City Farm and all the other beautiful sights this tour had to offer, we were also blessed with really great weather during the entire day so that definitely made the trip even more memorable.
    We decided not to purchase the lunch that was extra with the package so we had lunch at the deli inside the Hydro Majestic Hotel and it was really tasty.
    I would highly recommend this adventure if you are visiting Sydney!

    We had an amazing day on our Blue Mountains trip which also included a stop at the Wildlife Reserve where we had the chance to meet Koala's and other indigenous animals.

    Our guide Jonathan, was a mine of information and took time to talk to us about Australian history and origins. He took the time to talk us through each of the individual stops on the route and also threw in some hidden gems that made the trip that little bit more unique.

    Despite it being cold up in the mountains, Jonathan was extremely flexible and gave us time to take plenty of photos before moving on. If some of the group didnt want to get out of the bus, he was happy for them to stay put.

    The picnic lunch that was provided was fantastic and of such high quality that all of us were very complimentary about it.

    Unfortunately as the day progressed the weather became more inclement so Jonathan arranged for us to make an unscheduled stop at a tea shop on our way back to Sydney.

    This was the second tour we had been on with Runaway Tours and I really cannot fault them on their organisational skills or their customer service as we arranged the bookings prior to travelling to Australia from the UK.

    Both Steve and Mandy were exceptionally helpful and guided us perfectly to make the right decisions on both of our trips.

    We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Runaway Tours because they were professional from start to finish.

    Thank you for making our trip more memorable.

    I would recommend this tour to anyone with a few hours to spare while visiting Sydney! I learned so much about the area and it made me feel excited and confident to continue exploring the area even after the tour was complete. Our guide was a very kind and passionate man who clearly loves history and made the tour so fun. I learned a lot and loved the storytelling and inclusion of aboriginal stories within the tour. I felt I had a better understanding of Sydney’s history after this tour! Great value for the low cost, too. Note: there were stairs involved in the tour- may be difficult for travellers with mobility challenges.

    Great, but definitely include the Featherdale Animal Park. It is an extra charge but 100% worth it .

    Thank you very much, I enjoyed my afternoon discovery cruise on Soren Larsen, which is a beautiful ship. The commentating host was excellent and very knowledgeable, enabling guests to learn a lot about the ship and harbour. The captain was also very kind in allowing us to have a short go at steering.

    Great tour guide and comfortable bus. I recommend the tour to international tourists. I would have liked to know that there were plugins for phones as I would have brought my plug.
