Our tour guide Steve was great. Really knowledgeable about the area and made the trip very enjoyable. :
We took this trip with Mark of Activity Tours. We were a group of 12. All pickups were on time and we made good time to our various stops. We were one of the first groups to arrive at the Featherdale Animal Park so got good views of the native animals. Nice to see Skippy and her mates! We then visited a lookout over the Jamieson valley for some great views over the eucalyptus forest below. Following that we were given the option to go to a cable car lookout where we would have had to pay additional fees to see another view of the same valley and the Three Sisters or visit other valleys. Thankfully we all opted to see 3 other valleys in the area. Mark was a great guide who also enjoyed getting away from the tourists and showing us less known sights. He had those willing do a small trek down a side path to get another view. Beats sitting in a bus all day with no exercise! We had our lunch in a quiet village in the Blue Mountains, at our expense, before getting time to see the Three Sisters. It was nice to see because it is what tourists come for but it was better to have been able to see other views tourists on these tours do not usually get to see. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and we highly recommend this trip - without the cable car ride and with the addition of 3 more valleys!
Well worth the price of admission!
We had a great time with Steve. It was just a wonderful day trip enjoyed it.
The Blue Mountains to the west of Sydney offer some truly lovely vistas. This tour was also an opportunity for us to get out of the city and experience a little bit of small town Australia. On the way back into Sydney, we stopped to see the Olympic Complex, and we ended the tour with a short boat ride into Sydney Harbor. The tour helped us to round out our Australia experience in a time-efficient manner. We also learned about the Wollemi Pine Trees on this tour. We then made a point of seeing these ancient, rare, nearly extinct trees in the Royal Botanical Gardens in both Sydney and Melbourne.
This was a fantastic day trip with a great tour guide who was extremely knowledgable. Highly recommended.
The tour is totally worth it. Steve was our guide. He is a great guy and youll have tons of laughs while riding from one spot to the next.
Excellant tour, driver went out of his way to make it a good trip!
Fun day starting with a pickup at a nearby hotel. First stop was at Featherdale Wildlife park, where we hand-fed animals and had a photo-op with a koala. We saw a lot of native Australian animals there, too. Next, our driver took us to the Blue Mountains, which are stunning. It is a privately-owned park and quite large, so if you want to explore that on your own, I would recommend going to the Blue Mountains on your own. We did a short hike and went on a steep railway back up.
Then our guide took us to some other viewing points of the Blue Mountains. It was nice to have a local's guidance for those.
Unfortunately, we did not have time to go to the Olympic Park, but did drive by it.
We had a river cruise on the way back. I ordered a beer and enjoyed the sights.
Loved this! Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun.
