Traveller Tips

It is really nice to have hotel pick up on time !
I chose to go on the Scenic World portion, it's extra but completely worth it!
Just watch the news about bushfires in the area before you decide.

A Ride with a View
George_C, Mar 2023
Guide was great, very knowledgable about NSW Flora and Fauna. Scenic World and Zoo were great, spectacular views, fun rides on cable cars and near vertical railway…
Blue Mountains fun day out
Barbara_S, Mar 2023
The Blue Mountain trip was a great day out, despite the poor weather, and the driver/guide Matt was very informative and entertaining which made for a fun day out. I would highly recommended you take the opportunity to visit Sydney Zoo to see the cute koalas and the Blue Mountains Scenic rides, which were thrilling.
Air conditioning up too...
mary_g, Mar 2023
Air conditioning up too high on the bus. It was freezing. Driver talked too much, although very knowledgeable and a nice man. Weather wasn’t great so your couldn’t go to all sites. The tour was too long and should offer shorter tours.
Even though it was a...
John_B, Mar 2023
Even though it was a rainy day as bd the mountains were shrouded in clouds, we still had an enjoyable day. Our bus driver/guide Matthew was great. He kept checking the radar and adjusting our stops to try and get us the best experience possible. B
Floating with the clouds
Susan_B, Mar 2023
The views were amazing made all the more spectacular by the cloud formations. Les was an excellent tour leader and kept us well informed and helped us all make the best of our day.
Great day exploring the expansive Blue Mountains NSW
Veronica_M, Mar 2023
Organised Guide, kept the group together which would have been challenging at times due to the activities undertaken. Great overview of a beautiful expansive space, plenty of photo opportunities. The River Cruise return initially seemed confusing but the Ferry arrived and the cool breezes across the river and views of the Harbour provided a nice end to the day.
Great guide. Fun trip
Leta_P, Mar 2023
Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about the history and geology of Australia. Lots to pack into one day. Wish we’d had more time in Leura

Great Blue Mountain Trip
Margaret_F, Mar 2023
Matthew was a wonderful guide. He made our trip to the Blue Mountains very enjoyable. He is very quick witted with a wonderful ozzie accent. He was extremely knowledgeable and included fun facts about the aboriginal people. It is obvious that he loves his job. The van was comfortable (29 guests) and air conditioned. Highly recommend!!!!

Blue Mountains

Blue mountains day trip in the rain
Anne_G, Mar 2023
We loved our guide Les. He was great. Very knowledgeable and informative. Unfortunately it was a very wet day and visibility was nonexistent, but Les made it a really enjoyable day overall. A little disappointed that we didn’t get the river cruise, but we had a lot of fun. Can highly recommend.
Day trip to blue mountains
Arunika_G, Mar 2023
Hearing all the aussie stories The panorama of the blue mountains The walk through the rainforest The vertical railway up! The whole trip was fantastic. Thanks to Les.
Good crew average spot
bhargavaruchira, Mar 2023
The tour operator and our Guides Mathew and John were excellent. The pick up was hassle free. However the location i.e. blue mountains go a day trip could be debatable. I went with my sister and both of us concluded ot could have been avoided
Great , but!
martin_c, Mar 2023
Great trip with very knowledgeable driver. However you should make it clear route takes in Zoo with one and half hour stop less than hour into trip. Also at Blue Mountains there is pressure to take in Cable Car and Railways as bus goes direct to that area. It would be better is full cost was made known at time of booking.
Great tour of blue mountains
Rick_A, Mar 2023
Overall a great trip! Les was very knowledgeable about the things we saw and very entertaining in his delivery. The only slight negative I would is that he tried to pack almost too much into the day. I would have eliminated the Sydney zoo and/or wentworth falls
100% recommended for someone looking for a day tour away from city
Vishnu_S, Mar 2023
It was amazing, our guide Matthew was very knowledgeable and funny. He is a great storyteller too! He guided us throughout, just make sure you are on time. Would recommend it for a trip that covers outside city life.
Wonderful day at Blue Mountain
Ellina_A, Mar 2023
