Your private guide will meet you at your Sydney accommodation at approximately 09:30 am to begin your full day of exploration of Sydney. Spend the morning experiencing this beautiful harbour city from the water, whilst the second half of the day will showcase the best Sydney by road. This is luxurious privately guided experience that travels beyond the usual tourist places.
Your guide will depart your accommodation and will drive approximately 20 minutes to the marina where you will board the luxurious motor 48’ classic cruiser, “Iluka”. This beautiful boat is crafted to the world’s highest maritime standards.
Begin your 4 hour private luxury boat charter which will take in some of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks. You will cruise within meters of the Sydney Opera house with views reaching back to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Travel slowly along the magnificent sparkling harbour to the Eastern Suburbs, home to some of Sydney’s most beautiful harbour side residences. Learn the history of the fascinating areas of Woolloomooloo, Garden Island, Double Bay, Vaucluse, Rose Bay and be astounded with the change in culture and change in outlook from a by-gone era. After enjoying a visit to the Watsons Bay, your charter will then cross the harbour and head across to Chowder Bay and on to base of Taronga Zoo, where your boat will moor for lunch.
While Iluka is moored in another breath taking Sydney harbour environment, soak in the views while enjoying lunch; an assortment of fresh local seafood, BBQ treats, delicious salads to be accompanied with a selection of local beers and wine (and of course, finished with a sumptuous dessert!). On conclusion of your lunch, you will head back to the marina to begin the land portion of your luxury Sydney day tour.
The journey by road starts by heading east, taking the coastal drive to Watson’s Bay via some of Sydney’s most affluent suburbs. As your guide winds through the streets of Sydney’s exclusive Eastern Suburbs, you will have the chance to visit some beautiful harbourside beaches and bays: and stop at Vaucluse House to see an example of Sydney’s colonial architecture and the pretty gardens of former governors.
There will also be a stop at Watsons Bay where you will visit the ocean side of South Head called “The Gap”, close to the entrance to Sydney Harbour. There are dramatic cliff views from this location and amazing views back to the city.
On your departure from Watsons Bay your guide will make the drive over to one of Australia’s most famous beaches, Bondi. In Bondi, you will have the chance to take a short coastal walk or venture onto the white sands of Bondi beach and dip you toes in the ocean.
The tour then heads to the fashionable suburb of Paddington where you will travel down some of Sydney’s historic laneways where you will get a glimpse of the trendy high fashion stores, private art galleries and an array of old-world pubs.
Your touring will continue back to the city through the pretty back streets of fashionable Woollahra, with its boutique shops, popular pubs, restaurants and cafes.
At approximately 5:30 pm your tour will conclude, at which point your guide will return you to your Sydney accommodation.
