My wife and I booked this trip from the advice of others. We absolutely had a great time. Our driver was Tony and he had great stories and was very knowledgeable. We drove for just over an hour and arrived in Luera. We had a coffee and our two boys had hot chocolate. The Luera candy store is loaded with candies from the US and other parts of the world. We then headed for Scenic World. We did not purchase the ride tickets from the Viator but we did end up purchasing them at the site. They are pricey, but well worth the expense. After two hours, we boarded the bus and traveled to Echo Pt. for another view of the Three Sisters. Our final destination was to the Featherdale Wildlife Park and this was our favorite stop. We got to pet wombats and took a picture with a koala. (They charge $25 for the family photo) We ended the evening with a cruise to Circular Quay. The boat offered soft drinks, beer and wine. Great time overall.
Everything was great until we got to the boat for the cruise. The boat was seemingly over-full. All seats were taken. The only option was to stand outside. Luckily it was a nice day but if it had been cold or raining, it would have been a disaster.
Very long day but worth it. Blue Mountains are beautiful. Loved seeing the koalas and kangaroos at the park. Book your rides in advance for the Scenic Park, cheaper than if you wait and buy there. Must take the steepest railway and the cable car! The cruise at the end of the day does not have seating for everyone so be prepared to stand in the wind and sun for at least 45 minutes. Also, was not aware we would have to find our own transportation back to our hotel.
A must visit place when going to Sydney. The tour was very organized. Pick up on time, drop off on time, seating arrangements, tickets, time schedule for the day. Nothing can ask for. Excellent driver/tour guide. All praises.
Once we got to the Wildlife park it was a little chaotic. We did not realize that we needed to pay extra money to be able to view the park properly. Our driver kind of sprung it on us asking for more money in cash only to see the park much more easily. I think aviator should spell out that it would be very difficult to access the park with out the upgraded.
This was a great tour I would defiantly recommend it. We had a great time and our tour guide Tony was awesome. He told us all about scenic world. Featherdale wildlife park was the best. You could get your photo with the koalas and they had so many kangaroos. One had a little joey sticking his head out of mummy's pouch. We played with tho wombat scratching her tummy there was so much to see. I will defiantly book this tour again. Although we had a group of 19 and we walked about 3/4 of a mile to catch our bus and then the bus drove right up to out hotel and picked up 1 passenger. So I wish they could of organized that a bit better.
