See the park’s ancient plateaus and valleys come into view along the spectacular Cliff Drive. Visit Scenic World, at the edge of the park near Katoomba, where you can ride the world’s steepest passenger railway, and get an aerial park view from a gondola skyway (if option selected). Take in panoramic views of the Jamison Valley and the Three Sisters rock formation at Echo Point lookout, and hear the Aboriginal legends associated with the awe-inspiring landscape.
For a taste of mountain culture, visit the charming township of Leura. Browse antique shops, indulge your sweet tooth with authentic international treats at The Candy Store, and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (own expense, or included if you choose the lunch option).
After lunch, visit the new Sydney Zoo to see native Australian animals. Snap pictures of kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas, and observe exotic birds in a natural bush setting.
Afterward, relax on the scenic return drive to Sydney, where your full-day tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the early evening.

This is the second time we have been to the Blue Mountains. It was a perfect day and the weather was great Steve was our guide and did a great job. The bus had a bathroom and was very comfortable We had a great time
Fantastic day out to The Blue Mountains & Wldlife tour. We also choosen the option of Railway, Skyrail & Cable Car, this is a must as the views are spectacular. The Wildlife zoo is great, you get to see all the animals they have there. I would recommend & go back there again.
Really great trip. Excellent coach and driver. Only recommendation would be to allow more time at the blue mountains experience centre and perhaps miss the wildlife park n the way back which was average. Overall definitely recommend
First, our coach driver, Peter, was an AMAZING guide. He did a great job explaining the sites we were seeing on our coach drive from Sydney to the Blue Mountains (roughly a 2 hour drive each way), and did it with humor and fun. Peter was very accommodating and made sure everyone was aware of when we would leave each location, and where he would pick us up if he needed to move. He bought cookies and gummy snakes to give out as a snack after our lunch break, and even gave each of the passengers a mini-Koala as a keepsake after our visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Lastly, Peter even dropped my daughter and I off at a public bus stop since it was closer to our hotel than returning us to the Holiday Inn where we originally started the tour. Overall, it was an enjoyable day in the Blue Mountains with amazing sites to see (The Three Sisters, Scenic World, the city of Leura), and a wonderful tour guide in Peter that made the day even better. I would definitely recommend the Blue Mountains day tour with AAT Kings.
Good way to get to the Blue Mtns but would recommend not recommend the Wildlife Tour

Trys was an awesome tour guide. He was knowledgeable of the locale and sights. He seemed genuinely interested in telling us about the places and things in the tour and his passion for his work really came through. He was very forthcoming with tips and answers for any of our questions during the tour. I took one star away because of the proportion of the amount of driving around to the amount of time we had at each location in the itinerary; I didn't feel there was enough time to explore and do things at each location. I took another star away because of the Featherdale Wildlife Park. Although they had a bunch of plaques and accolades commending them of their work, the place was filthy and the animals seemed overcrowded.
The whole day trip was incredible and the tour guide Jason was great and really knowledgable and funny. The zoo was great we got to feed kangaroo’s!! And the view of the Blue Mountains was definitely worth flying round the world for!
