5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2009

My friends and I had a fantastic time in the Blue Mountains. The view was awesome. We enjoyed an exceptional morning teatime & shopping at the quaint shops of Leura village. The view from Echo Point was to die for. We took several walks down the suggested paths and were rewarded with breathtaking sights. The accommodation at Lilianfels was equally exhilarating & we were luxuriously pampered & well taken care of. The next day, we had breath stopping experiences whilst taking more walks, enjoying the 3 scenic rides & taking more photos from the two lookouts along the way. We had a delightful time getting up close & personal with the kangaroos, emus, kookaburas & even the koala. Our tour guide was well acquainted with all the places visited, entertaining & educating us with the history & stories and myths behind each place or encounter for the two days.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

Enjoyable trip. Though the coordination between Viator and the operator (AAT Kings) needs better communication to have a more seamless itinerary for this tour which differs from the usual 1 day trip taken by marjority.
