Next, continue to the Blue Mountains and explore this UNESCO World Heritage-listed park. At Echo Point, hear the legend of how the Three Sisters rock formation got its name and take in the spectacular views over Jamison Valley. Take a guided bush walk to Wentworth Falls and visit Scenic World, where you can ride one of the world’s steepest railways or take the gondola for aerial views of the valley below (at own expense).
Pack a picnic lunch or choose to eat at one of the many cafés (at own expense) in the quaint mountain village of Katoomba before traveling to Olympic Park, home to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Finish your day with a leisurely cruise down the Parramatta River. Pass waterside suburbs and travel under the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, where your tour will conclude at Circular Quay.

Fantastic guide and day! Nigel was amazing and took us on an incredible hike from top to bottom and back up again past waterfalls in addition to setting us up with a delicious and scenic lunch and tickets (optional) to the Scenic Rail and Cableway and Skyway. It was wonderful to have a small group and lots of commentary. The River Cruise back to Sydney was a bit strange however, waiting for many groups to be combined on the ferry and without enough seating. The good news is that the ferry boat stopped at both Darling Harbor and Circular Quay....one could buy drinks...and it was scenic!

As a young professional, I rarely have an opportunity to do some real hiking and have an intimate view of nature during most scenic tours. This tour includes both of these.
The guide (Nigel) is in his late 50's/early 60's with a belly, and this man CAN trek. He has a wonderful sense of humour and takes people to routes that are less travelled. He keeps saying everyone "does not have to be fitness superstars to do this"... well, needless to say, everyone outside Australia are NOT AS FIT AS the locals! :)
But once I completed the tour, I feel physically energized and definitely more alive. The older few older couples in my group tour also participated in the hikes, and based on my observation, they had a pleasant time.
Highly recommend it!
