    One of the reasons we picked this tour was that we did not have to decide, in advance, about going on the rides at Scenic Park. Prior to that stop, our driver required our commitment so that he could buy the tickets before we got there. We bought the tickets and then when we got there decided we were not comfortable going on them. We, therefore, wasted the time. Had we not bought the tickets, I believe we could have gone to the nearby time. We were able to get our money back. The Teapot Museum, in Leura, was a wonderful surprise. Overall, a good trip.

    A must trip if you visit Sydney! This small group tour is the way to go. A small van with less people is much better than a crowded bus. Your able to fit into smaller spots where the buses can't fit. I would rate this trip a 10 out of 10.

    Steve was such an amazing tour guide and this was SUCH a great tour. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could. It was a small group and our guide made sure we all had a good time getting to know each other. Each stop was more beautiful than the one before and the little towns we stopped in were great. Bring cash to pay for the rides in the valley 39AUD but Steve makes a pit stop early on for you to get cash and use the loo. This was our first tour on our big trip and it became the best one we took over all the cities and places!

    This tour is a must if you are going to Sydney. Our driver Steve was brilliant. He amazed us by remembering our names all round the bus straight after we had all called them out. About 16 people all nationalities. He was so informative. We had been to some of this area before but still thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a great crowd on the bus. The only bit that spoilt it was the cruise back to the city afterwards was a nice boat but very overcrowded and lots had no where to sit. We had to stand all the way for about an hour. This is the only reason I didnt give it 5 stars

    The whole day was FANTASTIC! Especially Steve our guide, he was amazing! Very entertaining and really informative. We have done numerous tours in many countries across the world and consider this to be the best we have ever done. The whole timing of the day was perfect as was the small group. We cannot fault this tour and have already recommended it to people strangers we have met. The 'cruise ' under the Sydney bridge was a very memorable end tho a wonderful day!! Thanks Steve for a great day

    We really enjoyed our trip to the Blue Mountains leaving from Sydney. We were picked up across the street from the Central Train Station right at our scheduled time. The drive up into the mountains was a beautiful one with a stop at the Featherdale Wildlife Park. Being from the USA, California, we were excited to see many of the animals in their natural habitat that we do not have here in the states. The Blue Mountains were beautiful and reminded us of our Grand Canyon only with trees. The rides at Scenic World were fun and exciting, with fantastic views. It was exciting to end the day with a river cruise that took us into the Sydney Harbor so we could see the beautiful view of the Opera House from the water. The whole day turned out to be a very beautiful and fun experience.

    Excellent choice. Witty and well-informed guide. Small bus was able to stop at some viewpoints which larger buses could not stop at.
