Australia and New Zealand Trip: Part 10 (Sydney Harbor Cruise)

On Easter Sunday (April 16), Tal and I spent 4 hours cruising Sydney Harbor:

From our hotel, we walked two miles to Darling Harbor, where we jumped on a hop-on-hop-off boat ride with Captain Cook Cruises:

From our boat, we got some beautiful views of the Sydney Harbor Bridge and the famous Sydney Opera House:

Tal really wanted to climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge, but it was pricey at $293 a person:

Tal and I hopped off the cruise at Circular Quay, where we ate Subway sandwiches for lunch and saw the Sydney Opera House up close.

There were lots of tourists at Circular Quay and the Sydney Opera House:

After spending some time in Circular Quay, Tal and I jumped on the cruise again and saw some of Sydney's beautiful sights from the boat, including Taronga Zoo, Shark Island, Watsons Bay, Luna Park, and Manly Wharf:

On our return trip, we thought it was hilarious when we spotted Tal's name on a building in the Sydney Harbor:

After a fun afternoon boat ride, the sun was setting when Tal and I returned to Darling Harbor and started walking two miles back to our hotel:
