Our Blue Mountain tour was very nice. The bus driver was on time and very nice. She allowed us to bring my husband’s go/go cart along. This allowed him to enjoy the tour. Unfortunately the weather was really chilly and misty. But our driver was very creative. The Featersyond stop went well and the park was really nice. The animals were out and about and the background was great around them. Nice stop. She included extra dialogue and even let us enjoy a local craft and food sale at a town before the Blur Mountains. The Blue Mountains was cloudy- foggy but she made sure my husband could enjoy most of the area. Overall it was a great tour. The one thing I found a problem was the way the tour ended. I never had a tour that didn’t meet you at the end and take you back to where you got on. The bus dropped us off at a boat trip down the River in Sydney. The boat ended at the area around the City Center by the Opera House area. We had to find our own transportation back to our hotel. I didn’t realize that when I booked. We had to find a cab large enough to carry my husband’s gocart snd pay for a taxi to get home.
Absolutely wonderful day tour with a superb guide, Jed. A prompt hotel pick up and we were off in a comfortable coach with approx 30 people to Featherdale Reserve where we saw Koalas, Kangaroos, Wombats, a Tasmanian Devil and more....what a treat seeing these animals up close for the first time. Onto Leura, a gorgeous and picturesque little town in the mountains, and lunch in a delightful little restaurant...Loaves and Dishes, before heading to Echo Point for spectacular views across the Blue Mountains, and seeing the 3 Sisters.
Scenic World is a fantastic experience with a cable cars and the steepest railway ever, and the views from each and while walking through the forest all quite breathtaking. After a scenic drive and a stop at Cahills Lookout with the opportunity to walk the boardwalk and enjoy the magnificent views, we headed to the Paramatta River and our cruise boat for the superb comfortable cruise back to Circular Quay.
A sensational day exploring gems of the area and with a fabulous guide...we would recommend this tour very highly, it was a fantastic experience, so well organised and well executed. Thank you again, Viator!, and Jed.
Although this is a long day, it was well worth the time to venture out of Sydney which is AMAZING. The tour bus was comfortable and other than our stop for lunch there was plenty of time at each stop. Don't dilly dally when you get off bus for lunch. Eat first, then dilly dally. Scenic world was a blast and one of the most unique tourist attractions I've been to throughout my travels. Our tour guide was very accommodating when there was a mechanical malfunction at Scenic World that could have made us miss part of the excursion. He sought us out and made arrangements to pick us up in a different spot so we wouldn't miss anything. The wildlife nature center was great also. I got to have a picture taken with a Koala Bear! I would highly recommend this excursion.
Really good / stress-free way to get to these places if you haven't rented a car. Pick up was on time, Jed was a great guide and the cruise back to Sydney was a nice touch. There are several versions of the tour that include lunch / rides at Scenic World, etc. so choose the right one for you.
