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.
No complaints about Viatour. You were more than helpful to us. However, may I suggest you ensure your subconttracted coaches follow their contractual obligation to you. the coach driver did not return us to the point of pickup but literally dumped us at one point instead of actually drop[ing us at the pick-up point. Some of us are not familiar with Sydney.
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.
It was a great trip and the mountains were amazing. The adventure caving was definitely worth it, but you need to be aware that you do sqeeze through some small openings. Highly recommended.
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!
I really enjoyed this trip. The guides at the Jenolan Caves were fantastic and made us feel safe throughout the adventure. I would definitely do this tour again!
