A fantastic tour with an enjoyable, knowledgeable, amusing and helpful driver. On our trip we only had 8 people and (that's what I call a small group) and due to this we could customise parts of the day according to various suggestions from the driver (length of stay at places and options to visit various locations). I would definitely recommend this trip to others for both its content and value for money (less that half what we would have paid if we'd done a similar trip from our cruise ship which would have been on a large coach as well).
The guide was very funny and knowledgeable. It was a great trip, I had such a good time, very glad I went on this tour. Highly recommended.
A fab day out - Steve the tour guide was great. My 83-year-old Mum can't manage stairs/steps very well but Steve looked after her all day. The tour was very interesting and the scenery stunning. Highly recommend this tour!
The Blue Mountain Trip was absolutely fabulous and I would highly recommend this trip. the driver was extremely informative, had a great sense of humour and answered all questions. The schedule was tight but that suited to allow us to see as much as possible. While looking at other attractions the driver ensured the tickets were purchased for the train rides which saved a lot of time. Fabulous day and I would go again.
Amazing tour that was well placed that brought us to great places. The view at secret location of the blue mountains was simply breath taking
Great value with a lot for the money. You see a lot and do a lot. The animal reserve trip, where you get to pet a koala and feed kangaroos, was our favorite part. Plan on being asked if you want to supplement you trip with other buying tickets to ride the tram and train at the Blue Mountains. It's worth the $30 but it is extra. Everything else is included. Great trip!!
Fanastic day.Stunning scenery. Grandson loved feeding animals at Featherdale. Brilliant informative tour guide.
This was a fantastic full day trip which took us around the Blue Mountains and back to Sydney via the Parramatta River Ferry. The group was small and the driver was informative, fun and conversational. Of course their is never enough time - but we were not hurried although kept to a strict schedule. This trip is a must do...
I really enjoyed my trip and was good value for money. I was a bit worried as I was traveling on my own but the small group number meant I felt very comfortable. The tour guide (Mark) was very friendly and knew all the best look outs of the blue mountains.
Lovely tour guide who made everything to make our trip as amazing as possible! Great arrangement, amazing lunch, nice charter group..absolutely great!
This trip is really amazing, we have a really nice tour guide Mark, who bring us to lots of nice look out point which not much tourist bus goes to, he also explain very well about the place and provide us some history of this place. The view was amazing, and the weather was perfect as well on the day of our trip. Highly recommended for everyone
This day trip was fantastic. It was just as described and our tour guide, Steve, was great. My sister and I enjoyed the Featherdale Wildlife Park and seeing the Blue Mountains best. The ferry cruise and going under the Sydney Harbour Bridge at night was fantastic as well. I definitely recommend this tour.
The day trip was awesome. Our driver/tour guide - Mark is fantastic. He's been sharing a lot with us along the way and took really good care of everyone.
This tour allowed us ample time to enjoy the Blue Mountains, get a feel for what's happening beyond Sydney and then some! Our driver, Nigel, provided colorful insight of the area and took us beyond the usual sights. We especially enjoyed the fact that he took us to local places such as Lawson's Bakery for provisions (don't pass on the apple pie!), and his trek into the forest was wonderful! It was a wonderful day for the family well worth the tour cost and time.
This was a brilliant trip and the tour guide Mark was excellent! From the pick up at our hotel to the drop off at Circular Quay it was amazing and Mark made it special for all 16 of us. Its a must to visit the Blue Mountains, Scenic World and Featherdale Nature Reserve although a bit more time could have been allowed for the Nature Reserve as it was a very hurried visit. Overall, 10 out of 10!
Lovely! Small groups and nice lady tour guide! Had fun-tastic day at Blue Mountains!
As this was a small-group tour, we managed to do a lot of non-tourist sights. It was left up to the group to decide what they wanted to see/do and the excellent driver/guide designed our itinerary for us on the day.
The tourist guide is very informative with good service.
All the features are as advertised.
Top tour guide with humour added with history intel. Very busy day but you get a lot in, don't miss out on this
This was a very informative and action packed tour, great value for the price. We visited Featherdale Wildlife Park, the Blue Mountains National Park, Scenic World, had lunch in Leura, visited the Sydney Olympic Village, then beat the Sydney traffic by enjoying a 45 minute cruise down the Parramatta River back to Circular Quay in downtown Sydney. Steve was a great tour guide and kept us all inline!
A very nice tour -- pickup was on time and as confirmed. A fair amount of city driving for pickups and then leaving the Sydney. The first stop was a private wildlife location -- Feathersdale. Very nice indeed, good staff there and a large range of Australian wildlife on view -- much in the open. Then on to the Blue Mountains. We were there on a clear day, so the views were awesome. The guide was quite knowledgeable (and quite opinionated as well). He arranged a lunch which most of us on the bus took advantage of. It should be noted, that there were a number of extra cost elements -- particularly lunch and the steep cable car down into the Blue Mountains. Other tours are much more expensive but include these things -- something of a trade off there. Also the river cruise is simply one of the Sydney Ferries from Paramutta to Circular Quay -- no problem with that, but the description of that as a 'river cruise' is a bit of an oversell -- I think the other tours do this as well. It does mean that returning to your hotel or apartment is on you. Not a problem for us, we had transit passes. All in all though, an excellent excursion, noting that lots of the excursion was bus travel outbound and back.
A great way to see a variety of wonderful sights, Ina short period of time, for a fair price.
This was an excellent trip from the 07:30 pick up at the YHA in Sydney to the boat trip back it was well worth the money, and the experience was nothing but exceptional. The drive was a very knowledgeable person who was always flexible to meet the needs of the people and the changes of weather, making sure we got too the best attractions at the best time. Whether it was the animal rescue centre or the tram rides we always there in time on time and before the rest. the tour as a whole was a full day and we saw things we could never have expected. On one thing to say is if you have a day in NSW and you want to see the blue mountains, the Sydney Olympic park, ride on a cliff tram, walk down cliff paths, go to the edge of cliffs on a large canyon and then ride a boat back under the Syndey harbour bridge on the way back beating all the rush hour traffic then book this one...... Well done to everyone involved, especially the driver.
