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.

We're sure other drivers and guides were great, but we were so fortunate to have Andrew Andy as our companion through the day. What a pleasant, fun and funny guy he was.

This is a GREAT trip!!! Our guide Andy was wonderful.. He was funny , kind, and very informative. You could tell he loved this trip too. We had an airconditioned comfortable van for the trip. We stopped in a small town for tea and yummy banana bread. Then we took off for the scenic mountain views. It was fun to experience the cable car, train and tram. The walkways were easy to walk and not over crowded. After seeing different areas we boarded a ferry for the ride back to Sydney. We had a great day!!

Even though it was pouring most of the morning, we enjoyed the tour immensly! Our guide, John S., was wonderful and knew how to keep our spirits up. By the end of the walk through the rainforest the clouds had lifted enough to see the Three Sisters, and by lunchtime we could get a nice look over the Blue Mountains already. The morning coffee break as well as lunch were well organized and good, with a variety of food to choose from. The highlight for us was Featherdale Wildlife Park, where we could handfeed kangoroos and not only watch Koalas close up, but also got our photo taken with one! Of course lots of others animals, all rescues, could be visited as well. Back into the city we went by boat on the Parramatta River, which was a really nice way to go back and arrive back at Cirqular Quay. Really a tour to recommend!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

This was a great tour, with great sights. It was a day filled with varying experiences that gave us an opportunity to see much of the Blue Mountains area PLUS a wonderful Wildlife Park. To top off the day, we enjoyed our cruise back to Circular Quay. We had a great tour guide, who improvised with some of our extra time and give us an extra drive-through tour of Sydney's Olympic venues.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

This is full day out and involves a fir bit of travel in the coach but which is well organised and works well. The driver/guide we had was very pleasant, helpful and knowledgable. Included in the tour is hotel pick-up, morning stop for breakfast coffee and toast, the tickets for Scenic World - a really different kind of experience with cable cars, a forest boardwalk and fast near-vertical railway, lunch at a scenic restaurant, entrance to a very interesting small wildlife sanctuary/zoo and a boat trip back to Circular Quay from the Olympic Park. As I said - a full day!

Really enjoyed the day, great value for money and the guide really knew his stuff

Excellent trip, well organised as usual with Viator partners. The bus driver was terrific and kept us amused throughout the day. The Blue Mountains were spectacular and the Katoomba railway is a must try experience. The Featherdale wildlife park was amazing and to feed and interact with the kangaroos and wallabies was special. The ferry ride back to Sydney was great even though it rained. All in all a great day out and terrific value for money

Excellent tour, good value. Smokey our guide was fun and very informative, he had a great rapport with everyone and also the other guides and staff at Scenic World. This tour included morning tea, lunch and the rides at scenic world. It was well worth the fees not to have to wait in line with people who were purchasing their tickets. Everything was very well organized. This was a trip that delivered more than we expected.
