Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour covers the Blue Mountains’ top sights plus options to customize your day with lunch or Scenic World.
Part of a UNESCO World Heritage site, Blue Mountains National Park offers a spectacular natural playground just 1.5 hours from Sydney. Your wilderness tour begins with morning pickup at your Sydney hotel and a drive across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. 
See the park’s ancient plateaus and valleys come into view along the spectacular Cliff Drive. Visit Scenic World, at the edge of the park near Katoomba, where you can ride the world’s steepest passenger railway, and get an aerial park view from a gondola skyway (if option selected). Take in panoramic views of the Megalong Valley and the Three Sisters rock formation, and hear the Aboriginal legends associated with the awe-inspiring landscape.
For a taste of mountain culture, visit the charming township of Leura. Browse antique shops, indulge your sweet tooth with authentic international treats at The Candy Store, and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (own expense, or included if you choose the lunch option). 
After lunch, visit a wildlife park to see native Australian animals. Snap pictures of kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas, and observe exotic birds in a natural bush setting.
Afterward, relax on the scenic return drive to Sydney, where your full-day tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the early evening.

We had a great time on this day trip - the pacing of the day was good, the guide was very friendly and gave us a lot of good info about Sydney and the Blue Mountains. I'd definitely do this trip again!

I made an error when booking the tour by entering thr wrong date. The error wasn't discovered until the date of the tour. At the point of discovery I was in Cains (not Sydney) and was unable to contact the tour provider. When I arrived in Sydney I made several attempts to discuss the problem with the tour provider but they absolutely refused to discuss or resolve my problem. I am very disappointed with this stance. While I realize that I don't have much recourse, I don't think that it is fair.

Great stops! Knowledgeable tour guide who told stories and history about the area. Tour guide allowed everyone to sample vegemite. Good tour for solo or group travelers.

Great tour! Unfortunately, fog in the mountains obscured most views. Walked the paths on valley floor which were great. Wildlife park and tour narratives were excellent.
