Just wow wow and wow! A must-see experience for anyone visiting Sydney - truly enjoyed the Sydney Zoo, the Scenic Railway, the gorgeous views and walks to Katoomba Waterfalls and the various lookout points on a lovely day Also the ferry ride back to Darling Harbour - worth every dollar paid!
Very nice and comfortable trip, a brilliant experience.

Very nice and comfortable trip with a brilliant experience. It is nice and helpful for family tourists. Save me plenty of time to prepare in quite a different city. They are very experienced and trained people to help us have a good journey. I can't believe I live on a planet with northern lights, coral reefs, snowy mountains, mossy rocks, and sparkling waterfalls, and I just have to go to work.

Most amazing trip ever - my friend and I had a most memorable trip yesterday to the lovely Blue Mountains with our fantastic and lovely guide and driver, Grant, who took care of our group of 22 really well.

Great experience with a good host. It’s such a lovely place I hope to go back to explore more.

Great experience with a good host. Had a morning tea and biscuits. Lunch was in the cutest town ever. Absolutely enjoyed myself. The pick up was swift. I did the railway ride. Worth doing for sure. It’s such a lovely place I hope to go back to explore more.

The trip was just amazing

The trip was just amazing! The views are indescribable, the guide was very dominant over all the subjects he covered during the day, he had a great recommendation for the places we visited and the all given times were strictly respected. Would really recommend everyone to take it!

It was a lovely day out

It was a lovely day out. Due to the bush fires, we didn’t manage to see much however that’s no fault of the company. Loved doing the optional team. And cable car. Ferry home was really good. The guide was funny and informative. Overall a great day out.

We did the Blue Mountains one day tour and it was great

We did the Blue Mountains one day tour and it was great! Our tour guide Simon was very helpful and passionate about his job. He told us about the history of Australia during our bus rides and that was very interesting. We also got to ride on all three rides at the Scenic World which was cool.

It's the best tour I have ever had

It's the best tour I have ever had! I had lots of information stuck on my brain like sticky notes. I still remember a giraffe has 7 bones in the neck. The tour guide was very funny and he likes to prank everybody like that fake spider prank. The whole experience made the money worth. Thanks, Lez!

A very good day

A very good day, lots of information and enough time to do everything would have been nice to have gone on the cable car and Skyrail both ways not just one way but still a very good day trip would do it again. Coming home on the boat was amazing as it was our first day in Sydney and got to see the Bridge and Opera house lite up. Thank you!

Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again.
The Blue Mountains can be equally spectacular on both sunny and cloudy days - so don't let the weather discourage you from booking as the clouds hovering over the rock formations makes a wonderful view!
