Our guide/driver was fantastic - full of information and a very good driver on those narrow, cliff roads.
The 90-minute cave tour was visually appealing, entertaining, and informative. Four of the 7 people on our coach opted for the Adventure Cave Tour and they all reported that they loved it.
We visited on a drizzly/foggy/cloudy morning, and the views of the Blue Mountains and The Three Sisters from Scenic World were obstructed for the most part. Therefore, we were advised against spending money on riding the Scenic Cableway, so I missed out on that experience. However, upon returning to the area following the cave tour, our driver was kind enough to stop at Echo Point so we could view the area in clear weather, and the views were stunning. The visit to the Blue Mountains on this tour is only a scenic view stop, not spending any time getting familiar with the area, but it is worth the 2-hr ride from Sydney if you have clear weather to see the spectacular views.
This tour spends most of the day on the coach. Hotel pickup at 7:15, to the central meeting point. Departure at 8:15. Arrival at Scenic Village 2 hours later for a 1 hour stop (incl. snacks/rest). Departed Scenic World at 11:15, arrived at Jenolan Caves 90 minutes later at 12:45. Lunch break. Cave tour was from 2:00-3:30 (1:15-3:15 for Adventure Tour), then a short rest break, departing at 4:00 and a brief stop back in Katoomba at 5:30. Departed Katoomba at 6:00 and back in Sydney at about 8:00pm.
I would recommend (time permitting) hiking in Blue Mountains on one day, and cave tours on a separate day.
