Great experience Loved every bit of the tour & our bus driver Paul very was informative & Tanya was also great. We booked a meet & greet cast member & we where very lucky to have Dan Ewing Heath an X river boy. He was awesome so happy to answer questions & he had a great sense of humour. Such a friendly person & was very informative too. We would highly recommend doing this tour if you are a home & away fan. Thanks for such an awesome day Fernanda

Excellent tour. The starting point is at the Rocks by the pier and very convenient. The two lines - red and blue intersect at a couple of spots. The bus has free wifi, which was great, but in one bus it was quite weak, but no big deal. The commentary was excellent. The staff were very pleasant. Covers all important tourist spots.

Jelle did show us a lot of interesting places with fun back stories and was always friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. The tour was very personalized and a lot of fun.

excellent tour very informative in a short time, showcases much of the Sydney sights

Everything was great!! But the waiting times at the stops were tooooo long!!
