Sydney is a magical city with outstanding cafes, bars and restaurants, amazing beaches, brilliant views, fantastic waterways, and world famous landmarks including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, and Bondi Beach.
You can explore the city by foot, by train, or plane, but to get out of the city centre and see the best of Sydney, nothing compares to a bus tour with one of our expert local tour guides.
Many visitors do not have a full day to explore the city due to early flights, late arrivals, or just wanting a bit of down time. We can tailor a half day tour of the famous sights of Sydney in the morning or the afternoon, or if you have the time a great value full day sightseeing experience.
All of our Sydney Sights private charter tours are personalised just for you
Our great tour reputation has been built over 15 years with many happy travellers to the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley, and now we are very pleased to also offer you a choice of two half day tours of the key highlights around the beautiful City of Sydney. If you are looking for friendly personalised Sydney day tours, look no further than Activity Tours Australia.
Begin exploring the city by crossing over the Harbour Bridge and experiencing some of the northern parts of the city and some of the beautiful headlands that shape Sydney Harbour including Milsons Point, Kirribilli and all the way to Manly where the North Head separates Sydney harbour from the Pacific Ocean.
Travel further from the centre of Sydney and marvel at some of the gorgeous headlands, points and beaches for which Sydney is so well known. Add to your holiday photo collection with some spectacular views and short walks that you may not get to experience when exploring the city on your own.
Continue along the green leafy suburbs of the lower North Shore towards Cremorne Point, Bradley's Head near Taronga Zoo, and Middle Head for some spectacular views across the harbour towards the city.
Explore the popular Manly beach where the North Head separates Sydney Harbour from the Pacific Ocean.
Head back South across the harbour, past Centennial Park and towards the beachside suburbs to the East of the city.
Feel the sand between your toes on the world famous Bondi Beach as you gaze out on the vast Pacific Ocean, or discover some of the lesser known beaches such as Clovelly, Coogee and Maroubra.
Explore further south of the city to La Peruse and see where Captain Cook first landed in Australia in Botany Bay (near where the international airport is today).
Marvel at the fantastic views on a cliff top walk at the entrance to Sydney Harbour, called The Gap.
Drive through the exclusive Eastern Suburbs including Double Bay and Point Piper which are home to some famous and wealthy Sydney residents.
Finish the tour back in the centre of the city and enjoy your choice of many tasty dining options at your leisure.
Work your way through Sydney's Colonial history and criminal past. There are plenty of photo opportunities and chances to get off the bus to explore many highlights on the way.
Start with key highlights in The Rocks area like Observatory Hill, Argyle St, numerous old pubs, weekend markets, and the historical wharves under the southern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
See some of the historic city buildings including the Conservatorium of Music, State Library, NSW Parliament, Hyde Park Barracks, and St Mary's Cathedral.
Be amazed at the views from Mrs. Macquarie's Chair to the Opera House, Fort Denison and the Botanical Gardens.
