Traveler Tips

It is really nice to have hotel pick up on time !
I chose to go on the Scenic World portion, it's extra but completely worth it!
Just watch the news about bushfires in the area before you decide.

Blue Mountain trip
Lesley_C, Dec 2022
The day was enjoyable and Matt the driver was very entertaining and informative. Highly recommended.
Can’t beat the Blue Mountains on a sunny day.
Sandra_T, Dec 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. We were able to message the trip provider for help on where to best connect with the bus and got a prompt reply with explicit instructions. An advantage of this trip was being able to opt in and out of the different experiences according to your physical ability or previous experience. We really enjoyed the cable car and train in the valley. Most of all our guide Les was very knowledgeable, easy to listen to and funny too. He was clear on instructing us to places to eat, good vantage points and where to reconnect with the bus. Very helpful and approachable. We would highly recommend this trip.
Great trip
Joseph_S, Dec 2022
Our guide Matthew has a well knowledge of the itinerary of places visited. Despite certain delays during the trip, it was great and we ended the trip at Sydney Olympic Park on a ferry cruise back to Circular Quay.
Great Tour with a great Tour Guide
Amone_v, Dec 2022
The tour included many beautiful scenic spots and a comfortable way to get around. The tour guide Les made the day fun and was very knowledgeable about the landscape and area . My friend and I had a great time .
Nice experience
Xiaohui_L, Nov 2022
Nice guide and great experience. Really enjoy the cable car, skyline and cable train. Different sceneries in different seasons.
Great Blue mountain tour.
Viren_J, Nov 2022
Great tour guide with Matthew, very knowledgeable of the area, having grown up there. The whole day was perfect with first stop at the zoo and then the falls, lunch, 3 sisters. We found the stop for lunch was a little short and rushed. Perhaps as we were a larger group and some folks were slow. Otherwise great experience.
The Amazing Blue mountains
Brian_B, Nov 2022
All of it. At the start of the journey our driver Les made it interesting with a running commentary of our surroundings, his wealth of knowledge throughout the whole trip was amazing and very interesting The Blue Mountains are absolutely breath taking and well worth the trip, it was definitely the high light of our trip to Sydney. Would definitely recommend putting this trip on your bucket list and don't forget to add Scenic World onto the trip. The steep railway was a thrill and the view from the cable car was dazzling
Breathtaking views and a passionate tour guide
Elizabeth_S, Nov 2022
Les was an awesome tour guide - so knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. He has an infectious energy and passion for what he does, and you could tell every tour was unique with him pointing out animals and plants along the way. I especially loved learning about the history of the area both from the 1800s to the more recent events that are continually changing the landscape.

Blue Mtn Trip
Jack_P, Nov 2022
The driver was excellent and was quite knowledgeable about Australian history flora and fauna. A most enjoyable day and we would highly recommend this excursion
The right choice
Marcos_N, Nov 2022
Very informative. It also covered many different lookouts, cable cars, trains, zoo, all included in a single day trip.
Wonderful tour to learn about the blue mountains
Ridhi_C, Nov 2022
The individual historic and scientific context provided by Lez (sorry if name is misspelled) as he covered a broad range of topics. Can not understate how wonderful he was at allowing time for questions and discussion, blending humour and emotional beats into his stories and teachings that never felt leftureish. Totally agree with him on the importance of microbial animals, and he came of as completely knowledgeable, answering all questions (even those particularly off topic) with ease, confidence and accuracy.
Blue Mountains and Cable Car ride.
Cary_W, Nov 2022
A brilliant excursion all the better because of our guide Les whose knowledge and humour turned a great day into a fantastic one. The mountains themselves were the highlight of course with the added bonus of 2 cable car rides and the steepest train ride I’ve ever experienced. A fantastic day out well recommended.
Amazing! Worth every penny
allanlamb, Nov 2022
Lez was the by far the best tour guide. He knew an amazing amount about the wildlife and history behind Australia. You will see amazing sites on this tour really recommend
A fun day out
Christina_L, Nov 2022
Les picked us up on time. Gave our small group a quick tour of the Sydney on our way to the next pick-up point. Throughout the day he shared a lot about Australia's history from its people to its ecosystem. He had a witty sense of humor and was passionate about providing us a wonderful day out. We are truly happy to leave Australia knowing more about it from a local. Though we enjoyed each stop I would have preferred a little more time in Leure to see the shops. I would also recommend comfortable hiking/walking shoes for those venturing out to Blue Mountain.
An amazing experience
Justin_A, Nov 2022
An awesome experience! Would recommend to anyone who can hike and loves the outdoors! Les was an awesome guide as well, with tons of knowledge about Australia, the flora and fauna and the geology of the mountains.
Brilliant tour
Nancy_S, Nov 2022
The small coach was comfortable and well airconditioned. The tour guide, Les, was well informed, interesting and funny. The day was packed with activities that Les personalised and gave us all the insights and tips into making everything great. I came away feeling we’d had an amazing day in the Blue Mountains.
