Fun and interesting
Patricia_W, Mar 2023
Our tour guide, Mic, was great. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and tried very hard to please all of us. It was great fun and very interesting The only bad thing about it was the bus. Way too small, crowded and uncomfortable, especially for an all day tour.
Horrific tour/tour guide; Viator won’t help.
Karl_G, Mar 2023
Caveat emptor!! This was one of the single worst tours I have ever been on. (For reference, I have been to 6 continents and 50+ countries.) The tour guide demanded we communicate outside the Viator application. While using the 3rd party messenger, the guide changed the time and place of pick up without confirming with us. When we “missed” the changed pickup location, he forced us to take an expensive Uber to pickup the tour or forfeit the entire tour fee. The tour operated despite the severely inclement weather conditions in the mountains. The guide knew that we would be unable to see anything on the sightseeing list. We ended up having to buy rain jackets because of the pelting rains. A rebooking option should have been offered. Why spend all that money to see the inside of a van? Lunch was served at a local restaurant, which is run by a bizarre religious sect. There were limited food options and the food was mass produced and rushed. When we finally returned to Sydney after having seen nothing of the Blue Mountains, the tour guide refused to drop us back at our Airbnb (pickup and drop off was included in the fee). We incurred another Uber ride fee to get home. To make matters worse, the guide was rude and indignant to the tour group members. It was so bad that my husband and I tried to make alternative arrangements to get back to Sydney early. This was impossible because of the remote location of the tour. I’m short, Viator has refused to help with the issues. We feel the tour went on simply to collect the fees, not to show us anything of value. Cancel or walk quickly away from this scam!!
Fun and special

The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Took us to the different places before it got crowded. Believe me it gets really crowded and just changes the nature experience. Food was delicious. Photo ops were fantastic. I really recommend this tour.

Awesome tour with amazing locations and very good guide. Food was delicious. We got very close look at the local animals at the wildlife park.
Great trip
Elaine_F, Jan 2023
The most memorable part is the magnificent blue mountain tour. The trip could have been more Perfect if we were allowed more time at the echoPoint lookout, or add a short visit to Leura, as the trip was indeed shorter than we expect (630am to 340 pm ), maybe it’s because of the very Smooth traffic. Tour guide very friendly and knowledgeable. The morning tea and lunch were superb too.
Blue mountain fun experience.
Andrew_D, Jan 2023

Great guide. Menashe was absolutely terrific. His experiences in Australia and New Zealand were very helpful in our future visit to New Zealand. I’d tour with him again!
Super Erlebnis.
Bertram_W, Dec 2022
very comprehensive tour experience. the tour guide was very good and easy to understand. he had very good knowledge of the entire area.
The tour is a great experience
Jing_M, Dec 2022
I would give Menash 10 stars if it’s possible. He is one of best tour guides we’ve ever met. The tour is of great value for its price, including a nice coffee break in the morning , lunch, a glimpse of the beauty of blue mountains and also a chance to pet and feed koalas and small kangaroos at the zoo. I like he is very on time and the pace of breaks and sightseeings are reasonable. Perfect for all ages!
Great Tour & Great Value
