Service and views were amazing nice time of year to get out on the harbor for our end of year get together
Great way to see the harbour
, Nov 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Weather was perfect. Want to do it again. Food servings were a good size and lovely. With choices to suit everyone. Staff were efficient. Only criticisms are that ⁰it went too quickly and that they could have been a bit more generous with the Chardonnay jus on the chicken.

Great boat ride experience

Excellent way to view Sydney harbor from the water. The food service was excellent and the food not bad. Be sure to visit the top deck for an incredible viewing experience. I also recommend spending a few extra bucks for a window seat.

The food and service were impeccable. Unfortunately we got off a bit early to explore darling harbor without realizing it was quite a walk back to the circular quay. But it was nice. Thank you.
Lovely experience cruising the harbor

I was by myself and worried that I would be seated with others who spoke different languages than I did...hard if you are sitting with others for 3 hours. But I had a table by myself in the top windowed- deck with menu opposed to the other two floors that had a buffet. I highly recommend this deck. The food choices were outstanding, the food quality and service excellent, wine choices equally so. And I could leave things at my table and go to the top open deck or other spaces and take photos and nothing was bothered. I got on at circular quay and off there as well after two hours plus. I could have stayed on for another 1 1/2 hours at no additional charge. But it looked like rain, and this was my last day. So I chose to get off and wander around the Rocks and its shops instead. Take this Top Deck Lunch Cruise. You will not be disappointed!!!!
