Ok so you couldn't fix the 40+ degree day but your tour guide and ship were fab. You asked us to post any helpful suggestions ok so we all knew it was going to be really hot, (its called watching the news or Facebook bom) well you can't control the weather but a couple of bags of ice for chilled drinks would have been amazing! Warm coke, water etc is not ok. And for a stifling day a nice cold chicken and salad lunch with a bread roll would have been a better option than a hot stew. I realise you were giving us a 200 year old experience but if you want a 5 out of 5 ice and a cold lunch would get it for you. Looking forward to a autumn/winter redo.

Was an awesome tour - tour guide Keegan is a total champion, hilarious, and really knows his history. It was a terrific few hours of being on board the beautiful old 1850’s ship, sipping champagne, walking around the island and learning about quite an important part of Aussie history.
Thanks to Keegan, the Captain & the wonderful crew for a great, very memorable experience!
Ps sorry Keegan if I spelled your name wrong! :)

We had great weather for our tour of the harbour and Goat Island hosted by the jovial Keegan.
Very informative tour and has heaps of colonial facts about Sydney and the harbour.
Take a jacket as it can get windy.

We purchased this tour and were very much looking forward to it. On the day unfortunately the tour guide did not turn up and therefore we did not actually get a guided tour- which was very disappointing.
On the plus side the crew of the tall ship were fantastic- very friendly and accommodating. Great to see such a talented young crew! The lunch was tasty and the bubbles helped!
Thanks to the crew for saving the day!
