And see the iconic Opera House or book the adventurous Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb.

If you are in Sydney just for a short visit, book a guided tour with a small group. You will save a lot of time and see more than if you go on your own. Plus you get all the explanations.

Your guide will pick you up at the hotel to start the tour in The Rocks. After you get immersed in the history of the back lanes and old cottages, regain the present of the city views and ride past the Mint, the Hyde Park Barracks and St Mary's Cathedral.

You will get to see the famous Kings Cross, the elegant Double Bay and Rose Bay. More breathtaking views of the city and the Harbour expect you at the South Head. Walk along the cliffs and then travel further to Bennelong Point and get to know some Opera House facts and then travel further to Bondi Beach and Centennial Park.
