A fast pace to maximize all the sights in one day. Just what I was looking for! Our tour guide David was amazing. Not only knowledgeable but helpful and outgoing. Here is an example. Many tour companies provide similar scheduled days. At the end of the day they drop you off at a ferry terminal for you to return to Circular Quay. David was the only tour guide that not only stayed to make sure everything was correct but was helping people from other tour companies who had been just dropped off!
We really enjoyed this tour. The blue mountains were stunning and we enjoyed being with a small group of 20. The only bummer is that they take you to Featherdale in the late afternoon and all the animals are asleep. We were so looking forward to feeding the roos and they wanted nothing to do with us
John was a great guide! Passionate and knowledgeable. My friend and I really enjoyed the tour and the commentary. The wildlife park was really fun we got to feed some wonderful animals, Leura is a nice little town I had a kangaroo meat pie and bought some sweets from the famous sweet shop, and the express ferry back to Sydney was a nice touch. This is a great deal.
We encountered just one problem: the pick-up location at Sydney Central YHA was quite confusing -- there was a sign that pointed to where we should wait for the coach but that sign pointed straight ahead into some light rail construction. Telephoned the tour company after we saw no one past the pick-up time, and was told to wait in the hostel itself. Waited a bit more, telephoned again, and was told to wait outside. So my friend and I stood around feeling very confused until we saw someone rushing up to us 20 mins after the pick-up time phew!. My friend and I didn't stay at the YHA and were told to go there as it was the closest pick-up spot to our place in Waterloo I made a telephone call soon after the booking to confirm the pick-up spot and was told that there'd be lots of buses along the street, which wasn't the case as it was closed due to construction... perhaps another pick-up spot could be chosen until light rail construction ends? Or maybe the office could let us know that the driver's slightly delayed as we were wondering if the coach had left without us...
Overall, though, this was a fantastic way to spend the day. Highly recommended!
Der Veranstalter hatte unsere Reservierung über Viator nicht beachtet und uns auch nicht vom Hotel abgeholt. Erst nach telefonischer Rücksprache wurde nach langem recherchieren unsere Reservierung gefunden.
Uns wurde dann ein Ersatztermin angeboten und als Entschädigung ein kostenloses Mittagessen.
Zum Glück hatten wir noch einen freien Tag zum ausweichen.
So etwas sollte aber nicht passieren.
Der Ausflug war sehenswert, allerdings zeitlich sehr knapp berechnet.
Im Wildlife Park hatten wir keine Stunde Aufenthalt. Das hat gerade für ein Foto mit einem Koala gereicht und einen Schnelldurchgang durch den halben Park.
Die Besichtigung des Olympic Park bestand aus einer 5 Minütigen Rundfahrt über das Gelände.
Die Bootsfahrt war eine Fahrt mit einer öffentlichen Fähre vom Olympic Park bis zum Sydney Circular Quay.
It was a good thing I decided to contact the Sydney operator to confirm out booking as our Booking Reference was non-existent. Viator did not send out details to the local operator. We had to make a new booking reference, tell them what package we bought and the amount paid. They just made a new booking for us without additional charges. This was the only hiccup to an otherwise great tour. I highly recommend the tour but you should confirm your booking on arrival.
The tour was great, and the guide was very informative and looked out for us, especially getting on the Skyway at Scenic World. Didn't see any of the Olympic Park except for the ferry stop. Would recommend buying the complete tour, lunch and Scenic World to save the hassle of purchasing after.
