Tour Description

This fully escorted private tour will take you to some of Sydney's most vibrant and famous landmarks at night. Guests will get to view the Harbour from specially selected locations on both the Eastern and Northern side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  If you are only in Sydney for a short visit this tour is highly recommended!

The evening starts with guests being taken away from the city through some of Sydney’s more colourful and vibrant nightlife locations. The commentary provides guests with a fascinating account of how these areas have evolved over the years. You will see some interesting character’s, stunning Victorian and Art Deco buildings along with the bright lights of Sydney’s former notorious red light district which is now becoming a sought after and gentrified area.

The tour then winds its way around the Eastern side of the Harbour where guests will see some stunning harbour side locations and one of Australia's largest naval bases.

There will be an opportunity to stop and walk around along the iconic Finger Wharf which is a favourite night spot and residence among local and international celebrities including Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey, Naomi Watts, Simon Baker.....just to name few! There will be many opportunities to take photo's here and the Finger Wharf looks truly amazing lit up at night with the large Royal Australian Navy ships in the background. From there guests will have the opportunity to sample the famous 'Pie & Pea's' at the iconic Harrys Cafe De Wheels which for over 80 years has been a favourite late night snack spot for locals and numerous celebrities including Elton John!

The next stop is at Mrs Macquarie's Chair where guests will have another opportunity to walk around and see some of Sydney's best views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. 

As the tour winds to a close we will then drive across the bridge to the Northern side of the Harbour to a fabulous location on the waterfront where guests will enjoy an elegant gourmet Australian produce canapé supper under the stars, sip champagne and admire the amazing view!
