One of the best Sydney tours, the Opera House is definately one of the most famous landmarks in the world. Situated in Sydney Harbour at Bennelong Point it surely is a must see visit for anyone coming to Sydney.

- The Rocks
The Rocks is the oldest district in Sydney, this is where the first settlers set up home built by the convicts using mud and sandstone and that how the area got its name so its a Sydney Tour not to be missed. Nowadays, the Rocks is nestled at the feet of Sydney Harbour bridge and has the highest concentration of historic buildings in Sydney that reflects its illustrious past. There are also lots of bars and restaurants in the area and a vibrant market every weekend. A great time to visit the area if you're in town is St Patrick's day when the street's and many establishments are in party mode with lots of live music and entertainment.
- Luna Park
Located on the North Side of the Harbour Bridge, Luna Park in one of Sydney's Icons, spend a day at the amusements and rides in this historical amusement park first opened in 1935. The park has been refurbished and restored to its glorious past in 2004. You'll be greeted on arrival by the unmistakable enormous smiling face that can be seen from the other side of the harbour. This is a great way to have some fun with the family when you're in Sydney.
- Sail Around Sydney Harbour
Sail around Sydney Harbour's for a magnificent 2 hour personalised tour around one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. Have lunch on board and enjoy great views of the cockle bay and the opera house. Take the wheel, trim the sails or just sit back and relax. Tours can be organised at the harbour itself.
- Motorbike Tour of Sydney
One of my personal favourites, its a great and unique way to see Sydney and the surrounding areas, rent a motorbike or be a passenger on the back of a Harley through the Streets of Sydney. There are many Sydney tours on Motorbikes to choose, from a 30 Harley Davidson tour of the Rocks to a 3 hour tours of The Blue Mountains. This is definitely an experience you'll never forget. Highly recommended!!
