Itinerary: Morning Cruise with Afternoon Sydney Tour:
Board your yacht at Circular Quay for a 2-hour morning cruise on Sydney Harbour. Enjoy your choice of coffee, tea or juice served with fresh biscuits as your yacht heads out on the water. Your crew shares the city's history as you cruise past the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. When your boat returns, have 1.5 hours free to purchase lunch (discount voucher provided). Your lunch voucher is valid at three local favorites: Caminetto, Waterfront, or Baroque Pantry all located around Circular Quay and The Rocks. At the appointed time, meet your mini-coach at the Sydney Marriott Hotel, an easy 4-minute walk from the yacht dock.
Relax on board the deluxe mini-coach for the 3.5-hour afternoon city tour, listening to your expert guide’s commentary on the highlights of Sydney, starting with the historic district known as The Rocks. Drive into the Royal Botanic Gardens to see Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, a handsome hand-carved stone bench overlooking Sydney Harbour. Then visit popular Bondi Beach and travel through bustling Paddington's shopping streets and the ritzy eastern suburbs before returning to central Sydney, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
