Customizable tour itinerary

This tour idea is fully customizable

This itinerary has been crafted by our Local Agency with one idea in mind: to inspire you. Every element can be adapted to your needs and your interests, from duration to accommodation and activities.

Day 1: Welcome to Sydney!

Stylish Sydney…a cosmopolitan international city filled with vibrant life, character and a sense of daring. The multiculturalism means a wealth of amazing dining experiences. While you will find all the icons you know, such as the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, you will also find interesting people, cultural vibrancy and a positive spirit. Meet & greet and private transfer to your hotel.

Night at Four Seasons Hotel (Sydney)

Day 2: Yacht cruise on Sydney Harbour

A unique, luxury four hour cruise experience. Enjoy the company of a small group aboard Ambiance - a 54 foot motor yacht. Your personal captain & host will share the rich history of Sydney Harbour and its foreshore as you take in the sites of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and the bays and coves of Sydney Harbour. Enjoy a gourmet 3 course BBQ lunch with regional wines, local beers and 5-star service.


Day 3: Seaplane to cottage point for lunch

You will be picked up by a water taxi to meet your seaplane at Rose Bay. Your flight from Sydney Harbour will take you over the Sydney Heads and along the Northern Beaches. The aircraft will land at the restaurant's jetty where a friendly welcome awaits at The Cottage Point Inn. Enjoy a three course a la carte lunch served on the deck with ample time to savor both food and ambience of such a unique location. Re-board your flight for the return to Sydney. A great photo opportunity!
