Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Blue Mountains Day Trip and River Cruise

Scenic World Valley

Begin your experience of the Blue Mountains with morning pickup from your hotel in Sydney. After collecting your small group, your air-conditioned minicoach takes a scenic 1.5-hour drive to the town of Leura. Nibble on complimentary morning tea and have time for a look around the boutiques in town, then head to nearby Echo Point to see the majestic Three Sisters, one of the region’s most famous rock formations.

Next up, your guide takes you to Scenic World where your tour includes rides on the cable car, railway and skyway. Descend a steep track on the Scenic Railway route to arrive at a pristine rain forest landscape where you can stroll around the greenery. When you’re ready, step into the fully-enclosed cabin of the Scenic Cableway, which offers aerial views of landmarks such as Mt Solitary, Orphan Rock, Three Sisters and Katoomba Falls, then get another perspective as you soar high over Jamison Valley on the Scenic Skyway.

After your visit to Scenic World, have lunch in Wentworth Falls. Soak in views of Valley of the Waters from large picture windows in the Conservation Hut cafe as you enjoy a delicious lunch. Get a closer look at the waterfall during a leisurely stroll through the area after your meal.

In the afternoon, start back towards Sydney, stopping for a close encounter with the animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Hand-feed furry critters such as kangaroos and emus, photograph a koala and admire some of the 2,000 creatures in residence at the seven-acre park. Finally, board a boat on the Parramatta River to cruise back to Sydney in style. Get a good look at charming waterfront homes and Sydney Harbour Bridge before your boat docks in Circular Quay to end your tour.

The only day we had foggy weather, therefore we did not see the Blue Mountains.
Was still a great day, enjoyed all 3 methods of transportation at the Blue mountains and at the Featherstone Wildlife Park.
Nice river cruise into Sydney Harbour

Our tour guide Brad was very nice and informative. Little surprise was they offered us simple breakfast at a beautiful small town on the way to Blue Mountains.

About as close to a true 5 STAR experience as you can get without paying a 5 STAR price. The one yuck on this trip was truly a double-edged sword, so to speak. The mini-bus we were on was cramped and detracted a bit from the overall experience, which was the downside, but the upside was the small bus allowed to go places a larger touring coach would not have been able to go. Our tour guide Smokey was truly a great tour guide. Along the way we detoured to see kangaroos in the wild and at various other points in our journey he also went off route to show us things we might not have ever seen otherwise. He gave us a great overview of Australian history along the way, which provided some interesting context to the overall tour. One particular benefit of this small group tour was Smokey acted as a private tour guide at the various points that we stopped at along the way. We weren't just dropped off and told to meet back at the bus at a certain point, we were escorted at each stop and he provided informative commentary. You can find cheaper options for a tour of the Blue Mountains you can take a train on your own for example, but I do believe the attentive service we experienced made this tour worth every penny. If you end up having Smokey as a tour guide/bus driver consider yourself lucky.

Such a fun trip. Henry was a great guide. And the river cruise really capped off a great trip with a relaxing cruise back to Sydney. Worth the money and then some.

A day well spent taking in the sights of the Blue Mountains and all of its surroundings, Senic Railway was excellent, our Bus Driver and tour guilde was excellent and I would definitely recommend this tour. To top it off we had a river cruise back to Circular Key/Darling Harbour.
