Sydney City Getaway (IPS)

4 Day Package from Sydney to Sydney

Let Monograms show you how to live like a Sydneysider when we take you down under to see several of the world’s most iconic sites, including the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. On this 4-day getaway, we have coordinated hotel reservations, sightseeing, transportation and daily breakfast for you. But the best part? We give you a buddy – a Local Host® who is in the know on Sydney’s best spots so that your vacation is stress free.

Your Australian adventure begins the moment you arrive in Sydney. We can pick you up from the airport and help get you to your hotel, where your Local Host will greet you with suggestions and materials to help you get settled. The next morning, enjoy an included breakfast before heading off to explore Sydney’s world-famous sites. You’ll stop to capture the perfect picture at the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Then stick your toes in the sand at the beautiful Bondi Beach. The afternoon and the following day are at your leisure to discover the city. Visit the Taronga Zoo where you can see the unique animals of Australia such as koalas, kangaroos, and platypuses. Take the ferry to one of the surrounding cities like Watson’s Bay or Manly, or check out the historic area, The Rocks. You may also choose from a variety of optional activities. Climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the very best views, join a guided backstage tour of the Opera House, or spend your day sampling fine wines in nearby Hunter Valley.

With so much to do, your Sydney stay will fly by! And when you travel with Monograms, you’ll truly have no worries, mate.
