a wonderful trip with caring and informative driver / guide. Definite value for money
Extremely well balanced trip which we thoroughly enjoyed, pick up from our hotel and transfer to the pickup point was seamless. A clean and comfortable coach driven by David took us to Echo Point with spectacular views if the Three Sisters, the aboriginal show was informative and entertaining. Back on the coach and a short drive to the scenic world which was included in our ticket (I would thoroughly recommend paying extra to include this in the trip) amazing fun on the scenic railway and again spectacular views of the valley from the gondolas. David looked after the group so well accompanying us to the valley floor and giving clear instructions on where he would be waiting for us when we got back up top and generally making sure everyone had a fabulous time. After lunch we were taken to the wildlife park which was a great opportunity to get close to some Aussie wildlife, a chance to have photos with a koala and feed a wallaby or just to look at some of the other creatures which are safer viewed from afar! My only critisim would be we didn't have long enough at the park and it was a rush to see all the enclosures before having to set off home - that said there was not a moment wasted on the day, it's just we packed so much in we just ran out of time! After returning to the Olympic park we were given the opportunity to catch a ferry back to Darling Harbour/circular Quay which we did at the additional cost of $9 per person. So pleased we did, the views from the Parramatta River were lovely and a treat to go under the Harbour Bridge also. If you only have a short time in Sydney I would certainly recommend this trip to just spend the day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Big thanks also to David our driver who really made it a day to remember.
EVEN THOUGH OUR TRIP WAS ON THE HOTTEST DAY FOR SEVENTY YEARS IT WAS BRILLIANT FROM THE MINUTE IT STARTED TO THE SECOND IT FINISHED. THE GUIDE WAS EXCELLENT AND VERY INFORMATIVE.THE ONLY DOWN SIDE WAS THERE WAS NO AIR CONDITIONING IN THE COACH ON THE WAY HOME, THIS MEANT THERE WERE A LOT OF VERY UNCOMFORTABLE PEOPLE CLOSE TO COLLAPSE ON THE WAY HOME. WE GOT OFF THE BUS AND CONTINUED THE JOURNEY BY RIVER WHICH WAS LOVELY. A MUST DO TRIP BETTER THAN THE GRAND CANYON IN MY OPINION.
Definately worth doing, enjoyed seeing it all. Rides were a bit crowded
Fantastic tour, driver was so knowledgeable, and would definitely recommend it. The wildlife park was really interesting and the scenic experiences, were well worth it.
We were a party of 8 and all truly loved the tour. It was our second day after arriving in Sydney and we were very excited for this trip. The weather was wonderful clear and sunny. The Bus was very nice. The Wifi kept coming and going but that's not a reason complain. The place we had lunch was nice and they servered us quickly and the food was fine. The only problem was one of the gals was having trouble walking and the bus driver gave her some bad info at one spot and walking was much more difficult than what he told her. All in all we were all highly satisfied with this long but wondeful day. Loved seeing all the animals.
The tour was as advertised. We especially enjoyed the Featherdale experience.
Was a great trip the driver great blow kept us all happy added commentary all the time made sure we were all safe and happy he deserves a big pat on the back a fabulous trip and I got to stroke a koala fab
Pickup was as promised, We had sunshine, so what a beautiful trip. This is a must see and do for anyone who has not been to the blue mountains. The animal park was as good as any zoo. except we were rubbing noses with the koalas and the small zoos. The guide was exellent. I would go again if I went to ausie land.
We were 6 people on the trip and enjoy it very much. There were lot of activities packed into it.
The Aboriginal show was a very nice surprise and we very much enjoyed the whole experience.
The break at this site was very short and it was the only problem during the trip.
Lunch in the restaurant was very good and satisfying.
The driver - Mark - was very nice a nd pelasant. He was very knolwdgable of the area and all surroundings.
A really good day tour. Really knowledgeable driver who gave excellent commentary throughout. The mountains are impressive and I definitely recommend the "rides" at Scenic World (furnicular, cable cars) unless you are of a very nervous disposition (pretty steep but not a problem for most people). The aboriginal experience on the way there was quite enlightening, and the wildlife park was fab (stroking koalas and hand feeding wallabies). We were given the option of doing the final part of the journey home by boat into either Sydney or Darling harbour for a nominal sum, which was a great finish to a lovely day.
Tour bus driver very knowledgeable, gave us great information and commentary about Sydney and The Blue Mountains etc. the area was spectacular, really enjoyed the Aboriginals show, and trying out the Didgeridoo! I would recommend this tour for all!
Superb tour up into the scenic Blue Mountains. A full itinerary yet we never felt rushed. A witty and well informed drive/guide addded to our enjoyment, as did the unexpected option to cruise back to Sydney from Parramatta. Highlights included stunning views of the Three Sisters and the Jamison Valley, the spectacular rides over the rain forest at Katoomba, the charming town of Leura , where we had an excellent lunch. The wildlife park was also well worth the visit. All in all a great value for money day trip.
excellent tour,Adam our driver was very knowledgable and chatty.
The tour was a very good and refreshing. You also appreciate the natures of both worlds of Sydney and California. It was a short time visit and intend to come back in the near future.
The mountains were spectacular as was the show. I would recommend you book lunch with the tour - the chosen restaurant served excellent food. It was a day not to be missed. Unfortunately our bus driver did not behave professionally but that was an issue with him and not the day trip itself.
Such an awesome trip! Easily found our way to the pick up stop. We were driven to the bus depot where everyone boarded their respective buses based on their day trip. Very personable driver, fairly good tour guide. Throughly enjoyed the tour, starting with the 3 sister mountains and the brief cultural presentation. Next we were off to to various railway and scenic rides. We were given just over an hours to tour this spot and I felt like more time was needed, perhaps half an hour more. Next was a lunch stop-did some shopping and had meat pie. Then we went to a wild life park and had a lot of fun feeding the animals and finally seeing a Kangaroo! We ended the day with a drive through of the Olympic park then dropped off to take a boat back. Some folks stayed on the bus. There was some confusion about the boat ride and it came very late. Some folks weren't too pleased about that and a friend of mines got a refund for the boat ride. Overall thou great trip and definitely recommend.
The best tour I took in Sydney. The driver was fantastic and went above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you. You made my trip. Shirley Downie
