Sydney Harbor Bridge Tour

Anyone done this tour? Looks like it would be a real kick.

Re: Sydney Harbor Bridge Tour

very expensive, have to take a class, and go with a guide. Not my idea of fun. Beautiful city though!

I live in Sydney near the bridge and it has never interested me, you see groups of folks on a daily basis all in blue jumpsuits walking up the bridge. The tour takes a few hours and includes two of my least favourite things: walking uphill and group tours!

I've climbed Eiffel Tower, Sacre Cour & Notre Dam, Leaning Tower of Piza....
Would love to do the Bridge, but like Toasty said, when its in your backyard.... probably wont happen

Re: Sydney Harbor Bridge Tour

Hi,
Like Chris said, this is in my backyard so am not interested. Give me something that I need to fly halfway across the world, and I will be there with bells on.

I have added a video that the Bridge Climb company took of Carleeta. She is a woman who suffers from Ushers Syndrome and lost her vision at around 30 years old. She is also deaf.

My wife Louise, took Carleeta on many adventures as her "Community Inclusion Worker" including the Bridge climb. The climb she says was awesome.

Truley, if I had the opportunity, I would jump at it. I hope you enjoy the video.
