Jump to last reply

Hello! My friends and I will be in Sydney end if this month. I am looking for the best tour and best priced for Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb, Blue Mountain Day Trip and Hunter Valley (Wineries/Wine Cheese Chocolate Tastings. I appreciate input.

    There are various types of "bridge climbs" that do not climb to the top of the bridge - there's at least one or two walking tours that will have you climb up the inside of one of the pillars. That is probably NOT what you're asking about - I'm guessing you want to go to the top and wave at all the tiny little people at Circular Quay.

    The bridge climb concession that actually has fool tourists scamper around the top of the Harbo(u)r Bridge is run by one company (I was such a fool tourist myself and it's worth the trip at least once). That company has specific rules and regulations it must follow, it also has specific safety equipment, training and procedures that its guides must ensure the tourists comply with because they don't want random idiots dying from arrant stupidity (and given the precautions, you'd have to be really daft to fall off). There is no competitive market for it, therefore there is no "best price" - there is THE price, which is what you pay if you want to climb the bridge.

    If you can get some manner of groupon or discount for it, good on you, but I'm wondering if those exist. There are times of the day that are less costly than others because sunset climbs and sunrise climbs have higher demand. The likelihood of finding a discount is low - this is a classic high demand/low supply commodity and you're charged accordingly.

    Everything else is subject to personal taste and desire because "best" means different things to different people (do you want to putter around Katoomba town, see the Three Sisters, hike a bit and go home, or do you want to go see the Jenolan caves). Go googling.
