Marking a new era for Sydney sightseeing, the new concessionaire for tourism activities on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Hammons Holdings, has unveiled the tour packages that will be available for visitors and groups.
The following packages will be available from 1 October 2018, when current operator BridgeClimb will cease operations on the bridge:
New Experience (Current Offering)
1.5hr Lower Arch Tour (BridgeClimb® Sampler)
3.5hr Daytime Summit Tour (BridgeClimb® Day)
3.5hr Night Summit Tour (BridgeClimb® Night)
3.5hr Twilight Summit Tour (BridgeClimb® Twilight)
3.5hr Dawn Summit Tour (BridgeClimb® Dawn)
2 ¼ hr Fast Summit Tour (BridgeClimb® Express)
3.5 hr [Mandarin] Summit Tour (Mandarin
2 ¼ hr [Mandarin] Fast Summit Tour (Mandarin)
Although the new product offerings essentially cover the same experiences as are currently available, Hammons Holdings CEO David Hammon said “over time, innovative and extended experiences of the Sydney Harbour Bridge will also be made available to tour groups, improving on those offered today”.
Those looking to scale the bridge will also be able to climb both sides of the iconic attraction for the first time.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Hammon has announced a plan to build walking tracks on the north end of the bridge, allowing the company to potentially double the number of customers.
While the name BridgeClimb and ticket prices are also under review, it is business as usual for now.
“As the new operator of Sydney Harbour Bridge Tourism, Hammons Holdings guarantees that all bookings for the period from 1 October 2018 made at the presently agreed price, date and time with BridgeClimb will be honoured,” Mr Hammon said in a statement.
“We have asked that all tour guide operators confirm with us their existing bookings and reservations for guided walks and other activities on the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the period commencing on 1 October 2018.
“The team at Hammons Holdings will be working through all bookings and tour operators can rest assured that we are busily working around the clock to ensure a smooth handover.”
