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
spent few minutes for Blue Mountains only. Jenolan Caves is awesome. I wish we have more time exploring and picture taking in the caves.
day didn't start well when pick up coach was 20mins late but only a few minutes late leaving on main tour.
Our driver was also our guide and he gave us a brilliant commentry whilst driving to our destination.
We were delayed leaving Scenic World at the Blue Mountains due to other people being late back (people being late was the reason for the earlier delay too)but we arrived at Jenolan Caves in time for a quick lunch before our very good guided tour.
The day went far too quickly and was good value for money and well organised.
Our guide/driver was fantastic - full of information and a very good driver on those narrow, cliff roads.
The 90-minute cave tour was visually appealing, entertaining, and informative. Four of the 7 people on our coach opted for the Adventure Cave Tour and they all reported that they loved it.
We visited on a drizzly/foggy/cloudy morning, and the views of the Blue Mountains and The Three Sisters from Scenic World were obstructed for the most part. Therefore, we were advised against spending money on riding the Scenic Cableway, so I missed out on that experience. However, upon returning to the area following the cave tour, our driver was kind enough to stop at Echo Point so we could view the area in clear weather, and the views were stunning. The visit to the Blue Mountains on this tour is only a scenic view stop, not spending any time getting familiar with the area, but it is worth the 2-hr ride from Sydney if you have clear weather to see the spectacular views.
This tour spends most of the day on the coach. Hotel pickup at 7:15, to the central meeting point. Departure at 8:15. Arrival at Scenic Village 2 hours later for a 1 hour stop (incl. snacks/rest). Departed Scenic World at 11:15, arrived at Jenolan Caves 90 minutes later at 12:45. Lunch break. Cave tour was from 2:00-3:30 (1:15-3:15 for Adventure Tour), then a short rest break, departing at 4:00 and a brief stop back in Katoomba at 5:30. Departed Katoomba at 6:00 and back in Sydney at about 8:00pm.
I would recommend (time permitting) hiking in Blue Mountains on one day, and cave tours on a separate day.
It was a great cave tour, but the time around Echo Point and Scenic World was a little rushed.
The Jenolan caves were the highlight and our guide there, Graham, was wonderful. The Blue Mountains were a big disappointment because we had so little time there.
Informative guide and tour. Would have liked more information on the 900 stair steps.
Minibus pickup from hotel on time, but then a lot of hanging around in the coach at Star City. Once underway the coach was clean and comfortable, David our driver was a very informative guide as he drove to all around the route, indeed all day, mixing info and fab dry Aussie humour! Blue Mountains, don't bother getting on any of the rides, they are a rip-off for what you get, photos can be just as good from the vista points by the cable car stations.Have a bite to eat and a drink in the cafe, visit the restroom and get back on the coach. Jenolan Caves, David knows the length and width of his coach is all I'll say on the long downhill section to the caves, he's some driver!! Caves themselves absolutely brilliant, we toured the Lucas system with a guide in a group of maybe 20 or so, nearly 2 hrs underground and loved every minute. Won't spoil it if you are thinking of going, but make sure you have plenty of power in your camera for lots of flash photography - You will need it. AWESOME. Very smooth journey back, drop-off right outside our hotel, thank you very much. Well worth doing just for the caves.
Our tour guide was absolutely delightful and full of interesting tidbits about Sydney and the countryside that preceded the tour. The tour seemed a bit rushed at times, but I'm not sure how they can improve upon that. Overall, we enjoyed the tour immensely and would definitely recommend it to others.
