I totally enjoyed Danny as our guide. He set clear rules to ensure the needs of all group members will be met, i.e. there were times where some inconsiderate group members played video loudly or spoke louder than him while he was sharing information of the places of interest, he always ensured the noises were lowered so that people who were interested to hear him would not be disturbed.
Danny also managed to spot some wild kangaroos for us to take photos of them in proximity.
The 3 sisters and the jenolan caves were gorgeous, I can't bear to leave when we had to move on.
In all, this tour is worth every cents!
My knees are bad they did not mention in your add that there over 900 hundred steps in your cave tour so while we are riding in the bus the driver mentions that if you have a physical problem heart or physical problem let him know The rest of the ride was stressful because I thought I had paid all this money and was not going to be able to see a cave but there are several caves one for an hour that I was able to see I also saw a platypus swimming in the wild very exciting it is a long day over 10 hours but if you are prepared for the cold and have good knees worth the money and the time
this tour is worth taking. all is very well organised, perfectly timed and very interesting. the ranger, Nada Chambers, was exceptional. motor-coach driver polite, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. though the bus' toilet had neither toilet paper, nor the soap.
Really worth going on this tour, get to see some great sites at the top of the lookout point on the Blue Mountains and the best part was Jenolan Caves which was Amazing, Such a great underworld to explore,
It was really good. at the caves the group was far too big. and the drive home was ridiculously long
but the day was wonderful
Cloudy and rainy, so we could not see the mountains. This also made bad traffic, so we missed the aboriginal show. The caves, however, were very nice, comparable or better than most caves we have seen anywhere. Tour guide was easy to hear and understand. Bus driver Mike was also very nice.
Great trip, well organised friendly driver. Lunch facilities at Jenolan Caves a bit disappointing.
We were very happy with the Tour coach and guide. Very well organised. However we feel the aboriginal show at Blue Mountains should not be oversold. It took away almost 45 mnts (inclusive of washroom visit, waiting for show to start and performance only for abt 20-25 mnts) of the 1 hour we had at Blue Mountains. Was also overrated. Hardly got 15 mnts to enjoy the Mount. Rating of 4 is for the motoroach and driver/guide.
All in all the tour was very good. Blue Mountains are incredibly beautiful and the caves are a real gem. The only reason I give 4 stars is how the tour itself was organised. We were picked next to our hotel in the early morning and then were driving round the city picking other tourists for the entire hour. After that the driver took us to some bus hub (located near Darling Harbour) where we had to change the bus for another one that had already been 80% full. If we were aware of how it all works, we would probably have saved one hour of morning sleep and come directly to the bus station by ourselves to pick better seats that is critical when you have a road sickness. Also we ran out of schedule by the end of the tour and arrived back to Sydney approx. 1,5 hours later, that could be fine unless we have had some reservations for the night. Otherwise the tour was very nice, and I can recommend it to everyone who loves nature.
One more advice is to skip the aboriginal show in Katoomba if you want to have more time for scenic walks around the beautiful 3 sisters.
A worthwhile day trip. There were beautiful views of the mountains, which were indeed awesome. The caves were interesting, but lots of steps-we were told over 900-so be prepared to do some climbing.
We had a wonderful day, our bus driver was very informative and great fun.
Bus driver is humorous, had an enjoyable ride through out the trip.
Good tour. Not too much time in Three Sisters, just 1 hour. Tour in Jenolan caves was interesting.
Great tour....would have rated it 5 stars, but our tour guide in the Caves seemed to hate his job and life in general. The caves were amazing, but the guide, not so much.
The view inside are spectacular ... and the tour guide gave good and interesting explainations for the different caves we visited. A very memorable experience! :-)
The tour was fun!
One small downside is the short time given at Blue Mountain. We had to rush for Scenic World Rides and did not get to take nice pics at the Mountains. A good suggestion could be a short stopover at the Echo Point Lookout to complete the tour.
Apart from that, the tour guide was entertaining and friendly! Had a great tour! Will recommend this to my friends.
The Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves are a must see when visiting Sydney AU. There are many walking tours to take from both sights I would suggest a day at each site if time allows!!! Spectacular pictures from both sights!!! Also our guide for the Caves was excellent!!!
We thought the tour was great. Our driver, David, talked all the way there and was very informative. The ride on the vernicular was a great experience. We would have liked more time to be able to take the aerial ride to view the falls better. The Jenolan Caves were great, also and we had another informative guide. We got there a little after lunch time and the assortment of food was a little sparse so we had to make do with what was there. We only had 2 days in Sydney and felt this was a great way to spend one of them. It was a long day but our driver dropped us off at our hotels so that was appreciated. Bus was clean and comfy. Would definitely recommend this tour.
The caves involve a lot of steps - make sure your coach driver buys a less arduous cave if you have any doubt. I switched to another cave and was lucky to organise it to finish at same time
