My grandchildren and I had a great time traveling on the Hop On Hop Off cruiser. It was a perfect day, sun shining and the views from the top deck were incredible. We spent time in Manly seeing the markets and having morning tea. Then we went to Watson's Bay for lunch at Doyle's on the beach and walked to The Gap along the promenade where we took photos of the city and the views. We finished at Circular Quay where we spent an hour walking around The Rocks and the markets there before heading home on the train. Worth it!

Even though I am a resident of Sydney I decided to take my kids on the tour. I highly recommend the tour. The kids loved the sitting up top. I enjoyed the various sites and learning more about the history.

Me and my friends enjoyed the hop on and hop off bus + 4 attractions.,good thing it was not raining. Our experience was a memorable one.
