Perfect Day Tour Adventures from Your Double Bay, Sydney Accommodation
Surrounded by Sydney Harbour, Double Bay has a lot to offer those willing to uncover its charms. After booking your Sydney accommodation, it’s time to find a day tour capturing the many faces of Double Bay and nearby areas.
Originally planned as the site of Australia’s first botanical gardens, Double Bay deftly mixes city living and waterfront experiences. There is no shortage of things to do and see in this former fishing village, from antique shops to art galleries, to high-street shopping that has plenty of options for both fashion-lovers and bargain-hunters.
Sports lovers can enjoy the wide range of tennis, golf, and swimming facilities in the area. You can also drop by the 18-Footer Sailing League Club and get in on the racing action. But if you’re looking for calm, the quiet beaches offer a brief respite from busy city life. If you’re excited to schedule a Double Bay day tour, here are some options that you may want to consider.
Big Bus Sydney And Bondi Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour
A popular option to see the sights in Sydney is to book a sightseeing tour by double-decker bus. The bus makes up to 23 stops, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Darling Harbour, and Bondi Beach, and a pre-recorded commentary offers key information about the attractions.
Additionally, there’s a deluxe option to visit Tower Eye, Madame Tussauds, Sea Life Aquarium, and Sydney Zoo. This tour covers a lot of ground in one day, making it one of the more cost-efficient options. Start the journey at any stop and hop off if you want to see more and stretch your legs.
If you don’t want to cram everything in a day, buy a ticket valid for 48 hours. That way, you can return to your Sydney accommodation and pick up where you left off the next day. Why no choose The Savoy Hotel, Double Bay?
Private Day Tours
If you want a more personalised touch, consider booking a private tour with a local guide. Alternatively, for those who want to prioritise flexibility and customisation, a private tour with a smaller group may be a better option. Here’s a list of private tour operators to help you get started:
