Great tour, very full day. Loved it all.
Bus trip to mountains, zoo, and ferry ride back. Excellent! Wonderful scenery and guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. Zoo was cool. We chose the express ferry to Darlington Harbor, and sat in the lounge -- very comfortable and relaxing drinks available.
We did this tour at the beginning of our Australia/New Zealand vacation and it was a wonderful start to our trip! The weather didn't cooperate that well during the Blue Mountains portion of the tour, but we really enjoyed it and all the knowledge we gained during the bus trip. The river cruise did not disappoint either... seeing Sydney, the Opera House and the Bridge from the water was amazing! And the ferry literally dropped us off at our hotel - bonus - would definitely recommend!!!
Absolutely fantastic tour with a great guide Peter T......The itinerary was fantastic, really covered a terrific range of spectacular sights and activities morning tea and lunch were also great. This tour was made particularly special though by Peter T who was really knowledgable and engaging who provided really interesting information about Sydney, the Blue Mountains etc.....and also very tasty Arnott's Biscuits!. This tour is really highly recommended ....It was definitely a highlight of my trip to Sydney!
amazing views ..
Great day out. Very busy over the Easter long weekend but we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Peter our guide was fantastic and kept us amused, the food was tasty and the scenery was beautiful.
We had a great time on this excursion
The tour was very good and guide was helpful and informative. He gave us some extra time at the sites by shortening up the meal and shopping times, which I appreciated. The Blue Mountains are worth a visit and can be hard to get to from Sydney unless you have a car or figure out how to take the train over, so I liked this option. Featherdale is a small park, but since you only have 1.5 hours to walk around, it's a good size to see in the time allotted. Lots of animals to see and pet that you don't run into in the states. The boat ride back was a good end to the day. I enjoyed meeting the people on the tour as well, and a few of us actually had such a good time that we ended up meeting on our own to see more sights the next day.
The one piece of advice I would give is to bring a jacket with. Even though it was quite warm in Sydney, the mountains are quite a bit cooler. Many of the people on the tour had to buy overpriced jackets at the first stop because they didn't realize this. It would be worth mentioning in the tour description.
Normally we rent a car and do our own exploring, but the hotel we were staying in Sydney wanted AUD 50 per night, so I booked this tour. A great way to see the Blue Mountains! The drive was about 2 hours from the city with Jason, our guide, filling us in on the details of the tour and answering a bunch of question about Australia and Sydney. Had a lovely banana bread and flat white in Katoomba. Saw wild cockatoos in the trees all around there. Then off to Scenic world - very nice. Took the gondola across to the main area stand on the right to get the better view of the falls. Took the tramway down to the bottom and came up the rail. I think the coolest ride was the train! Great view of the 3 sisters from a few vantage points. We had lunch at a little place in the woods, food was quite tasty. We set off from there to Featherdale wildlife park. Got to feed kangaroos and pet a koala. We then drove to the wharf in Parramatta right by the Olympic summer site and boarded a ferry back to Sydney. Well worth the price and convenience!
Exciting trip, especially with the driver assigned. A light breakfast and a full lunch are included.
The return by River Cruise could use a guide detailing the riverside.
