Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris2662 such a great afternoon on the harbour
We had a great time on the High tea at Sea. The boat was set out beautifully. The staff were friendly the view was magnificent and the commentary about the land marks was perfect! The food was yummy and the complimentary bubbly when we first sat down was a great way to start off a lovely few hours on the sea. Thankyou

Rated 3 out of 5 by jw2013 Scenery spectacular but high tea is average
The harbour is spectacular and the cruise was lovely. Unfortunately, though all on-board commentary was for the starboard view and if you are at the port side tables, as we were it is impossible to see what is being described.. The food was quite nice and well presented but the actual tea was served luke warm, in a very small pot, well before the food was served. To have something to drink while enjoying the food meant you needed to purchase an additional beverage or ask for water.
If commentary was ballanced for both views and the tea was actually hot and served with the food the whole experience would have been excellent rather than average.

I learnt a lot about the harbour that I never knew before! The whole day was great, very relaxing and would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 This was a great experience
Thoroughly recommend High Tea On The Harbour. Even through the weather was wet and windy, it did not inpact our experience. The food was good and the tea was superb! I would like to take my mother on this experience and look forward to doing oit again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sunset66 Quality rather lacking
There's no doubt that this experience's main strength is the fact you're cruising around beautiful Sydney harbour. On that count we were satisfied, but we expected more of the high tea itself..
The whole thing just seemed a bit cheap, which is not what you imagine a 'high tea' to be! Two triangle sandwiches with supermarket grade fillings, a soggy shrimp canapé that had clearly been made hours prior and kept in the fridge, disposable plastic pots of jam and cream, packets of sugar on the table rather than a bowl etc. It just wasn't the level of quality I had hoped for (or that is suggested in the literature!).
We had a very nice time, but due more to each other's company than to the dining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jarnie Relaxing, great cruise
The weather was near perfect, the cruise boat comfortable, scenery great (Sydney Harbour is always great), really good commentary without being overbearing. Commentator very easy to listen to and very knowledgeable.
Our only criticism (minor) was that our tea (beverage) was served nearly 30 minutes before the (high tea) food was served allowing the tea to cool although we later received a (hot water) top up in our tea pots.
Great value and we would do it again in the future.
