Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This more economical and flexible tour is limited to 20 people and includes a river cruise.
After morning pickup in Sydney, enjoy the scenic drive to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.
Stretch your legs and meet amazing native Australian animals during a stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park. You might like to hand-feed the kangaroos and emus, or have your photo taken with a Koala. Plus. Be sure to bring your camera for great photo opportunities!
Once you reach the Blue Mountains, stop at Echo Point to admire one of the Blue Mountains’ most heralded sights: the Three Sisters. Your guide explains local lore about this sculptural rock formation, which sits above the picturesque Jamison Valley. Next up, a nature hike to stunning Wentworth Falls. Then choose from several tour options at Scenic World (own expense). You might ride the rails or take to the air in a gondola to view the rainforest and valleys of the Blue Mountains.
Expect a break for lunch in Katoomba, a charming village in the Blue Mountains. You can either bring your own picnic or stop into one of the town’s fine cafes to purchase your lunch. Throughout the day, your guide provides informative commentary about the sights along with time for photo ops and rest stops.
As your small group-tour heads back towards Sydney in the afternoon, stop at Olympic Park, where the Olympic Games were held in the year 2000. Then hop on board a comfortable boat and glide along the Parramatta River. Take in the waterfront homes and lush greenery as you cruise back to the city. Once you pass under Sydney Harbour Bridge, it’s not long before your boat docks at Circular Quay where your full-day Blue Mountains tour ends.

Booked this trip over the other Blue Mountain ones because there was the option not to do the Scenic World rides which I'm not keen. I expected to just have to wait while the others do the Scenic World rides, however, our wonderful guide Scotty took me on a great walk during that time. I was treated to beautiful sights as well as knowledge of some plants. The tour is made great with out our exceptional guide Scotty's enthusiasm and energy. Highly recommended.

We are a group of 3 from Malaysia and had a very good time doing this Day Trip especially with Steve from Adventure Tour as our guide. Although it rained all day, it was really fun and worth all we paid for. I would recommend this trip if you are looking for some fun thing to do outside Sydney. Keep up the good work!

Visited Blue Mountains, animal park, Olympic village and finished the day on a river cruise back into Sydney. Steve, our guide, was very knowledgeable and hosted the day with great humour. Worth taking an extra $40 per head to cover the cable car and railway at the Blue Mountains ...well worth doing.

The tour was great, alot included for a relatively small price. Steve, the guide, was super knowledgable, enthusiastic and very accomodating. He made the day a treat with a few insider deals. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking to see the blue mountains in a short timeframe!

Great day trip, really value for money.Steve - our guide and driver - was informative and entertaining.There was more than enough to do and see, and different optional activities if you wanted.The day wasn't rushed nor did it go on forever.The Blue Mountains was the main highlight, which you're given plenty of time to explore.I would 10/10 recommend going on this tour if you're staying in Sydney.

Although the weather was not so friendly, I enjoyed walking in the valley. The waterfall was beautiful and walking in the forest was a great experience. Thank you!!

Steve was a very good guide and the day was well put together. We both enjoyed it.Were puzzled by the sign in the bus that said you had to have a seat belt yet there was just provision for front seat guests and the driver. Perhaps the buses used need an update

Would recommend to anyone. Itinerary was varied and fun, something for everyone. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The boat ride back to Sydney was memorable.We had a great day. Well worth the investment of time and money.

Steve was a great tour guide and bus driver, with lots of knowledge and a great sense of humor. You get to pet a lot of the animals at the wildlife park. Steve points out lots of good restaurant choices at the lunch stop. The national park is very scenic. You will enjoy the skyway and the descent into the rain forest on the canyon floor. The ferry ride from Olympic park back to circular Quay is a nice touch to a fun-filled day.
