Tour description provided by Viator

Capture the essence of Sydney in just one hour on your own private tour. The Harbour is the jewel in this world renowned city and without it the World Heritage listed Opera House and Harbour Bridge would not be as eye-catching. Our unique tour gives you an incite into how "the most beautiful harbour in the world" came into being and now stands at the heart of one of the worlds leading cities. Once you board our boat your skipper can cruise you around the harbour and tell you about the key landmarks, including The Opera House, Mrs Macquarie's Chair, Fort Denison, Admiralty House, The Harbour Bridge, Goat Island and Darling Harbour, to name a few! Your knowledgeable skipper will give you an informative commentary as well as recount anecdotes about the past and present. This is one not to be missed!
Arrive at Commissioners Steps at Circular Quay at 10.20am for your morning departure at 10.30am (or 1.50pm for your afternoon departure at 2.00pm) on your private tour of the Harbour. This is right outside the Museum of Contemporary Art, just before you get to the Overseas Passenger Cruise Terminal at Circular Quay. Your skipper/guide will take you on your private tour of the harbour, showing you areas and views of the harbour not often seen. You will be able to capture some unique photos as you cruise around as you learn about the stories that make this one of the most amazing places in the world. You are welcome to quiz your skipper about where to go and what to see so you can personalise your tour to the areas you want to see within your hour tour, or feel free to leave it to your skipper to show and tell you some of the amazing stories.  As you cruise the harbour, you can enjoy the views from the comfort of your own seat in our fully weatherproof cabin with opening windows, or a few people can stand on the open foredeck for an uninterrupted view of the incredible harbour.On board you will be provided with a bottle of water and some snacks to enjoy as we cruise. However, please feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks if there is something you particularly enjoy (but please take any empties and packaging off with you). At the end of the cruise your skipper will drop you back at Circular Quay with some great stories and photos to remember your tour of the harbour.
