Great day, in spite of the weather. We we shown some amazing views over the Jamieson Valley, including of course, the Three Sisters. Our driver was informative and charming.
We were treated to some incredible sights as we wandered through the cave...amazing to think of the age of this spectacle and the fact that it is still evolving.
So glad we made the trip. It was worth it!
Very good tour. The tour guide was very informative. Caves were really interesting, just wish we had more time there for exploring.
Our driver was great! We arrived at the Blue Mountains site before other big crowds did, so we were able to have some great pictures and enjoy the view. The caves tour was nice and our tour guide was very informative.
Great tour guide, caves were beautiful, mountains couldnt be any more blue. Well worth it!
Great memories, as this was a birthday present for my mum, she was so excited about the caves and so relieved that we had the option to choose a smaller number of stairs between the caves, as she has arthritis. very happy with the tour and the driver was very friendly and informative, his name was David :-)
Great tour and jenolan caves were spectacular. Tour guide was great.
Guide (Henry) was engaging and informative, keeping up a playful monologue. At the same time he drove with utter confidence, amazing skill and commitment to safety.
The length of the stay at the main stopping points was utterly correct. Even on a day of picture-perfect skies and mild temperatures, when we would of course wish to linger as long as possible, we did not feel as though were being ushered.
The only negative would be the underemphasis of the reasonableness of the prices at Jenolan Caves. We were surprised, after the prices in Sydney, to find we could purchase tasty food and sit in a delightful setting without having to empty out our pockets. It would have been helpful to know this ahead of time, as it would have lessened the one anxiety we had about the day.
We had such a great trip! The coach was so comfortable and the driver so patient. There were just enough stop overs and plenty of time to look around and do your own thing. And the best bit was the hotel pick ups and drop offs. Such a time and hassle saver!!! Would highly recommend the tour.
Just one thing of note that the site doesn't mention - you sort of do require a certain level of fitness for the cave tour coz its like total of 900 steps and if you are claustrophobic you might not enjoy the caves as much. have fun :)
Blue Mountains ok but the Jenolan caves are fantastic. A long tour (circa 12 hours) but well worth it. Very well organised
Great day trip! It is a long drive to the Blue Mountains and back but once you get to the Jenolan Caves you'll realize it's well worth it. The cave we visited was really awesome! Too bad that the tour group was quite large (as usual, tend to get people who aren't very aware of common courtesy) but if you don't have a car or don't want to make the drive out to the caves, taking this tour works well.
Be patient when trying to spot a platypus in the blue lake. We waited quietly for a few minutes and he appeared several times for us.
our guide paul was really knowledgeable and put customer satisfaction ahead of everything. it is a great tour if you havent got the time to explore blue mountains and the jenolan caves.
You need to be there to fully understand the beauty of Jenolan Caves. Wish we could spend more time there to explore the areas.
Excellent driver, humorous and above all knowledgable about the places on the trip. Cave Tour equally good. Well worth doing.
Once again our driver was very knowledgeable and witty. The Caves were fantastic. Think this was our best day tour.
This was a terrific tour. I had been to the Blue Mountains before, but not to the caves. The tour was a little long, but the driver was very informative along the way. I had not been to the caves before and cannot believe that a person of my age (65+) could walk up and down over a thousand steps inside these twisty windy caves. I am so proud of myself for doing this that just about anything else in life now should be easy-peasy! The caves were fabulous. The ony disappointment I had with the tour was that the railway was not working as that was really what I came for.
Couldn't have had a better experience with this tour. Picked up on time in the morning in the Sydney, and from there it was just uphill. Coach driver was FULL of great knowledge on the drive up - learnt so much! Quickie stop at the blue mountains to see the views and go across the valley then off to the Jenolan Caves.
Caves were absolutely beautiful. Definitely recommend upgrading to the "Adventure Cave" package where you walk inside the caves and climb through different openings and walls. Not overly claustrophobic as you might think. The underground rooms are huge and very open.
I also did the tour by myself as a 22 year old girl travelling. It was a perfect getaway for a solo traveller or groups.
Amazing tour!! Probably one of my favourites since being in Sydney!
Great tour! Lucas cave was really interesting
The best caves in the world, liked the tour guide, and the motorcoach driver was the best tour guide....
We had a wonderful day with Viator; our tour-guide has committed everything for us to enjoy the trip as much as it is possible (he was very informative and possessed a good sense of humor), and the bus itself was very comfortable. The Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves were as they are: beautiful!
This was amazing!! The caves are a must if visiting Sydney. Top marks for AAT Kings who ran this tour. Pick up and drop off from hotel hassle free. Our driver was informative, entertaining and always kept you updated. I did not feel rushed at all, this tour is very well organised. Well worth it!
This was a great tour, but make sure you are in shape and ready for a 12 hour day. We were picked up on time and everything was on time and great. Would definitely recommend this tour --both the Blue Mtns. and the Caves were great.
Tour of caves was memorable,awe-inspiring, must bring a camera. 2 hours, must be in good shape to walk up stairs. Guide was superb and very knowledgeable.
Only 2 negatives: long bus ride, 3 hours up and back. Leave at 7, back at 7.
Do not take tram or sky rail, can see gorge, water falls from scenic walk.
Lunch stop was good, food reasonably priced for Australia. Pay double vs. USA. for a candy bar, coke, etc Condiments not included, pay $.90 for ketchup
Caves are worth it, on a par with Grand Canyon,Flume and White Mts. of NH in appreciating nature and its gifts provided for us.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Jenolan Caves. It is a must see if you are visiting Sydney. I felt as if I was transported back and literally walking on history... It was just an amazing experience and I highly encourage everyone to do it. Our tour guide driver, Ralph, was very entertaining and knowledgeable. He kept feeding us with useful information on our journey there.
jenolan Caves were spectacular! The bus driver was very accommodating and pleasant. Definitely a highlight of our holiday.
We just came back from this tour and we loved it! The tour guide was very amusing with his commentary and I found it nice to learn things about the city's (Sydney) history that I typically don't get from other guides.
The Blue Mountains were beautiful, they do their best to get you to do the most in the short time you have (about an hour). If you're not a fan of hiking/nature-walking an hour is enough. If you are, I'd advise you skip this tour and take just the "Blue Mountains" tour or take the train to Katoomba railway station to spend some more time there.
Most of the trip is spent at Jenolan Caves, which are astoundingly beautiful. The tour of the caves lasts a good hour and a half, and they really give you a great history lesson while you're climbing those 900-something stairs.
One word of warning: those who are claustrophobic or find it difficult to breath in 'cave' conditions, I'd advise you NOT to go. There was a lady who turned back a few minutes into the tour because she was having trouble.
In the pond nearby the cave (the blue one) you may be lucky enough to see a platypus but there almost was not enough time to take a look around the area between lunch and the tour.
We are exhausted and happy by the end, and our tour guide treated us to a look-see at some wild kangaroos!
