    Outstanding trip and wonderful memories. So many fun things, hard to mention them all. A highlight of the trip was Scenic World cable car, rainforest and train ride back. Tea in the town of Leuna was perfect. Lunch at Blue Mountains National park was fun and delicious. The River Cruise ferry back to Sydney was a great way to end the day. Our guide was very accommodating and very informative.

    I enjoyed my day at the Blue Mountains, lunch, Featherdale Wildlife Park, and the boat ride back to Sydney. Nice tour overall, great tour guide very nice gentlemen I forgot his name. It was cool to see the Blue Mountains close up and ride the cable car from one side to the other. Nothing really flashy about the tour, but it was a nice tour and a nice way to spend the day outside of Sydney!

    Great value for money trip, a lot was included. Morning tea/Scenic World/lunch/Featherdale Wildlife Park/river cruise. The guide Peter was very knowledgeable and great fun. The only downside was we didn’t get enough time to explore, but you would need several days to see all of Blue Mountains.

    We loved this day trip! Pick up at our hotel was prompt, and because the bus filled up there, we were able to start the day earlier than scheduled. Glen was our tourguide, and he gave us excellent information throughout the day about Sydney, Australia, and more, to the point where our Australian friends were even impressed with what we learned when we met up with them the next day. Tea in Leura was lovely, as was the town in general. The Blue Mountains were wonderful, and we were lucky to be there on a clear day and able to see far. I do wish we had a little bit more time at the first lookout stop to be able to take our time and enjoy the view, rather than just snap a few photos and be on our way, but it was a lovely view of the Three sisters. The rest of the day was great - Scenic World was fun, the short walks were interesting, with lots of information along the paths, both about wildlife, flora and fauna, and history. We loved Featherdale Wildlife Park and thoroughly enjoyed feeding the kangaroos and wallabies! Great day trip, would highly recommend!

    What a fun way to get out of the city and see the beautiful Blue Mountains National Park. Our driver was full of information and very helpful. Being on the smaller bus was great too because we were able to do things the bigger busses simply could not do. Highly recommend!

    First I must say we had the best tour guide in Jason he was knowledgeable, fun and his love of Australia was evident in his desire to show us the best of the Blue Mountains. It was an awesome day beautiful weather, small group, great morning tea and lovely lunch all included. Scenic World provided such a great view of the gorge and the Three Sisters we took the cablecar across and the scenic railway up per Jason's suggestion which was spot on. Featherdale Wildlife Park was great had our picture taken with Koala. We had no waits Jason kept us ahead of crowds, timing is everything and he made the best of our day..If you are lucky enough to be in Sydney do not miss this tour.
