It was a great outdoor experience!. Our journey started on a cold and grey morning but the weather cleared out as we ventured into the Blue Mountains. The mist gradually cleared and we were able to see the Three Sisters. The tour itinerary was perfectly spaced out and the tour guide/driver Peter provided useful nuggets of information throughout the entire journey. He also had a great sense of humour and there was never a dull moment. We had requested for vegetarian meals and we were happy with the choices offered for both breakfast and lunch. The stopover locations and restaurant choices were good. We were a small group of 16 people and the 18 seater bus was just perfect. The only let down was Featherdale Wildlife Park which did not live up to our expectations. While we got to see the Kangaroos, Koalas and Penguins up close, the park is definitely not in the same league as other national parks worldwide. I also did not enjoy watching the exotic Australian birds housed in small cages. The return journey is quite relaxing cruise on Parramatta River to return to Sydney and provides scenic views of Harbour Bridge and Opera House. We had used AATKings for the Great Ocean Road trip at Melbourne and we are extremely happy with both the experiences
It was a great day. Brad, our guide and drive did a great job with his fun narration and kept us laugh entire time. Blue Mountain is stunning. I love seeing animals at Featherdale Wildlife where we can actually touch those wallabies, kangaroos, and koala bears. When we arrived at Sydney on Fantasia cruise ship, the Sydney Opera House had just begun the laser and light display. That gave the perfect and memorable ending.
Great day outing. Had wonderful weather, a bit cold but if you are prepared the rest is great. Our driver and Guide Sheldon was fantastic, with lot of stories and details to tell that makes the difference.
Fantastic! The Tour provider AAT Kings is the best! It was a small group of people which lent to the fact we could get on/off bus in a timely fashion allowing our tour guide and driver CRYSTAL to show us two other spots for great pictures. She was amazing. Knowledgeable and very nice! The Blue Mountains were awesome. Just because of the season, by the time we got to the river cruise it was dark so not much to see but would be nice at another time. It was a leisurely way getting back to Sydney. Certainly worth booking
Most enjoyable! Loved Featherdale wallaby and kangaroo park and the river cruise was lovely with the city lights! Would definitely recommend this trip.

Our tour guide Dave was excellent and Blue Mountains are beautiful. It was an amazing tour.
very enjoyable. It was picturesque, comfortable and informative with a great tour guide. Highly recommended.
We spent a very enjoyable day in the Blue Mountains in March. Our driver was very friendly and looked after everyone well. We had a lovely lunch, included in the price. I wasn't really looking forward to the visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park as I'm not particularly fond of zoos but it was surprisingly enjoyable. The cruise back to Sydney was great and I would recommend this option.
Smokey was fantastic. Enjoyed every minute of the tour. Tea time and lunch were tasty. Received a good honest history lesson from Smokey. Highly recommend for anyone making their first visit to Australia. Thanks for a great time.
Very knowledgeable tour guide and a safe driver
Good combination of what to see and do for the whole day tour
The tour was perfect just what we wanted. Our guide, Smokey, was incredibly entertaining....a modern day Crocodile Dundee. We knew we had to see more of Sydney than the city, and were blown away by this scenic area 90 minutes away. It was screaming windy and showery, so the gondola was a little extra excitement. The stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park was one of the highlights for us, providing some neat up close and personal interactions with a koala. The boat ride back to Circular Quay beat the heck out of the Friday afternoon traffic.
A wonderful tour of the Blue Mountains. Enjoyed the Scenic views and Featherdale Park. Smokie was an awesome tour guide.
Done it on trip advisor
Thanks to Peter our host and coach driver
A great day and we crammed in SOOO much. Our guide James was brilliant. The funicular was a highlight along with the cable car. Sadly no crocs were spotted on the River cruise but the boat trip was great fun anyway. Definitely recommend this tour.
Cristal was our guide and driver for this marvelous trip to the blue mountains. She was very knowledgeable and make a trip very enjoyable.
Everything went very went. After stopping for coffee and pastry in a small town, we arrived at the bottom of the mountain. We rode a couple of cable cars and a train to climb to the top and have an amazing view for the canyon follow by a walk in a tropical forest. We cruise back to Sydney what was very enjoyable way to come back to the city.
It is a very recommended tour.
Brilliant day. Helped along by Crystal our driver and tour guide. She's worth more money if her employer is reading this. Scenic land was fantastic. Good food all round, morning tea and lunch. Clean air conditioned bus. Cruise was excellent way to end the day.
It was a great trip and we really felt well taken care of! We would def recommend this trip to other tourists who want to have a relaxed and quick trip into the blue mountains.
Superb young driver/guide well informed knowledgeable Think his name was Joe
The tour was exactly what it was purported to be. The experience overall was great. Peter, our tour leader was fantastic. The food included in the tour, which is often an after thought, was great as well. I would highly recommend this tour.
