Enjoy a Cruise in Sydney Harbour
Besides the classic hop-on hop-off experience, the deluxe ticket gives you express access to three other tours. The Sydney Harbour cruise would serve as an excellent start to your tour as it opens at 10.50 AM. As you glide smoothly through the pearl-blue waters of the harbour, you will see some of Sydney’s most iconic sights such as the Barangaroo and the Sydney Opera House. The ticket also includes a guided tour of The Rocks neighbourhood, an old urban locality that has evolved into a tourist precinct. Your guide will help you understand the 18th-century colonial origins of this neighbourhood. Initially frequented by sailors and convicts, the government decided to demolish many of the old buildings in the area in the early 20th century. The Argyle Bridge, Cumberland Place and Steps, the Old Bushells Factory on George Street, and the Orient Hotel still survive in this historic neighbourhood, serving as tourist attractions to this day.
Wander the Beautiful City of Sydney With no Restrictions
The hop-on-hop-off ticket allows you to travel to many of Sydney’s most sought after tourist hotspots at your own pace. You are free to create your own travel itinerary with this pass. On the Red Line, you can stop by the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Sydney Opera House, and the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. The Power House Museum and the Maritime Museum are great places to see rare exhibits, while Woolloomooloo Bay and Sydney Harbour Bridge offer breathtaking views of the bay area. On the Blue Route, you can visit the famous Bondi Beach and its surrounding areas.
Visit Either the Sydney Tower Eye or Madame Tussauds
Owing to the fact that it is one of the tallest structures in Sydney, with its observation deck perched at a height of 309 metres above ground level, the Sydney Tower Eye is an excellent place to get a panoramic view of Sydney. The audio guide can give you insight into the history and significance of the building. Madame Tussauds is a fascinating place to examine the impressive collection of waxworks of celebrities in the cinematic, musical, sporting, and political domains. Choose one of these by talking to the staff while redeeming your ticket.
