Traveller Tips

It appears the only way to get down there is to take the cable car and then the railcars.
Would definately reccomend this tour, It is worth the money!
Although it rained all day, it was really fun and worth all we paid for.

Amazing day in the Blue Mountains
Randall_L, Mar 2023
The views of the Blue Mountains from the various lookouts were beautiful. Our driver/guide Jim was excellent and very informative, taking us to out of the way viewpoints without crowds and arranging the day to avoid the rain while outside. Hard to believe this is close to Sydney.
Worth the price
Rosemary_C, Mar 2023
The best part of the trip was the wildlife park - cutest and liveliest animals! Weather wasn’t very kind to us that day but our guide was quick to find alternatives ie it was foggy and wet so we didn’t get good view of the Three Sisters & Blue Mountains but our guide changed the itinerary and brought us to view those areas later in the day at lower grounds. It was the best he could do and we’re happy!!
Nice day away from the city
Kelly_O, Mar 2023
Great views and the animals and birds in the wildlife park were very unique. Our guide Scottie was very knowledgeable and kept the day fun and interesting.

Our guide Jeff was a real character who went out of his way to keep us entertained while ensuring he found us the most amazing views of the Blue Mountains. We loved the little village of Leura where we stopped for lunch.

Saw clouds
Hilda_P, Feb 2023
A big hype about things you may or may not see. Yes, the tour guide was very nice and did know a lot about the history of Sydney and more but...i didnt see what i payed to see. All the beautiful pictures and you see nothing but clouds and i was told it was worse the day before so i do feel a little salty about it.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that the weather was not as good as if often is and that this did not allow you to experience the amazing views in the Blue Mountains. We're glad that your guide was able to share their knowledge of the area and to take you to some different places to try to maximise the available sightseeing opportunities. We hope to see you again on a brighter day!
Simply one of the best excursions
Montgomery_L, Feb 2023
Small group tour went to places the big buses can't go. Driver (Jim) did a remarkable job trying to avoid the heavy rains, and took us to very unique places, some off the beaten path. Gave everyone a great look at the Blue Mountains. One of the most careful driver I've had on excursions.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your great feedback on your tour with Jim. He is a fantastic gudie and loves to show people around the Blue Mountains. His vast knowledge of the Mountains and the small group allows us to adapt the itinerary to make the most of the viewing opportunities at different times of the day. We're very pleased that you were able to appreciate the majesty of the Mountains, even on a day when it was not clear blue skies.
Koalas, waterfalls, and gondolas
Nancy_C, Feb 2023
We've been traveling for 4 weeks and this is the best tour we took during that time. Our guide, Steve, made the bus time go by so quickly with his interesting and humorous commentary. Our experience at the wildlife park was made special by paying extra to get a picture tourmaline a koala. I would recommend spending the $30 , otherwise you'll never touch one. At the Three Sisters site we also paid extra to ride a tram and a gondola across the canyon, as well as a railcar that had a very steel incline. It was fun, and the aerial views were wonderful. It was a great day.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your feedback on the fantastic day that you had in the Blue Mountains with Steve. He definitely keeps everyone entertained throughout the day and we are really glad that you enjoyed your up close encounter with the Koala at Featherdale wildlife park.
Best Tour of the trip
Glenn_H, Feb 2023
The guide (Scottie) was one of the most knowledgeable I have met. From the Aboriginal origins of the valley, to the history of the first settlers, his commentary was fascinating. The drive and scenery were beautiful, and the wildlife park topped off the day. The tour is well worth the day.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your wonderful feedback - Scott will be very happy to hear that you enjoyed your in the Blue Mountains day so much.
Excellent scenery with a very knowledgeable tour guide

Epic Blue Mountain Tour
MrUmp, Feb 2023
Exploration of 3 Beautiful valley floors, explanation of why Blue Mountains and sculptures of the Three Sisters
Response from Host, Mar 2023
There is so much to see in the amazing Blue Mountains National Park - our guides love to explore more remote places and share the stories about the areas that we visit. We're very pleased that you had such a great time.
Lovely Wildlife
Jean_T, Feb 2023
Wildlife Animal Park. Lots of very tame animals who came up to us for attention Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and we still haven’t seen the Three Sisters or the Waterfall
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry that the weather did not cooperate on your tour, but are very glad that you enjoyed the animals at Featherdale wildlife park and the day exploring in the mountains.
Lovely end to a perfect hoilday
Keith_H, Feb 2023
The whole day was perfect. The only way it could be improved is for longer walks and more time to explore the blue mountains.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
The Blue Mountains national park is a beautiful part of the world and you could certainly spend many days or weeks exploring. It is great that you enjoyed the taste of some peaceful areas on your tour. Hopefully we will see you again on another trip!
Fun day especially if your guide is Scotty Edwards!
Claudia_T, Feb 2023
Scotty Edwards, our tour guide, made the day interesting, funny and informative as he relayed First Nations stories about where we were visiting and seeing how they used the stars and the landscape to inform their living. The lunch break in the town of Leura was most excellent, and the Featherdale Wildlife Park was the perfect stop at the end of the day--especially as it included the opportunity to purchase your photo with a koala. All in all, a very fun time.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for sharing how much you enjoyed your Blue Mountains tour with Scott as your guide. He loves to entertain and share his knowledge and is quite generous in relaying what he knows about the stars and the environment. We're pleased that you enjoyed your whole day experience, including Featherdale wildlife park and the relaxed village of Leura at lunchtime.
Must do in Sydney!!
Dan_L, Feb 2023
We had a great, full day tour of the blue mountains with a stop at a wildlife park. Great tour. A must for people visiting Sydney.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
We could not agree more! Thanks for your great feedback. We're very glad that you had an enjoyable time exploring in the Blue Mountains and seeing Australian native animals at Featherdale wildlife park. We'd love to see you on tour again!
Blue Mountains plus Animals CloseUp
Scott_R, Feb 2023
Excellent tour, Christopher was a bundle of knowledge and took us to wonderful sights and made sure we took advantage of the best opportunities!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for the wonderful feedback. We don't go to the same places every day so that our guides can adapt and make the most of different weather and conditions. Chris will be very happy that you had such a terrific day and enjoyed the locations that you visited as well as the knowedge that was able to share.
Great trip
Luba_K, Feb 2023
Trip was fantastic. The sights and trip to wilderness park were made all that much better because of our tour guide Scotty who was a wealth of information and delivered it in a fun and engaging way. Also like the small hike we did to see the three sisters.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for the great feedback on your Blue Mountains tour with Scotty. He is great fun to be around and has a wealth of knowledge to share throughout the day. We're pleased that you enjoyed the guided walks too.
HOT day but beautiful sights
Rema_T, Feb 2023
I wasn’t comfortable going alone to the Blue Mountains via public transport and not knowing where to go so I chose this tour. This tour was a great way to showcase the different spots within the Blue Mountains. Jim took us on a trail to where Wentworth falls was and the views along the trail were stunning. We also went to different lookouts throughout the day which was also nice. Day ended with seeing the Three Sisters. For the summer, bring lots of water and sunscreen.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for your feedback. We are very happy that you enjoyed your small group guided day tour with Jim to show you around and use his expert local knowledge to explore the best sights. The temperature in the Blue Mountains is usually 5-10 degrees cooler than by the coast in the city centre, but in the middle of summer it can certainly get quite warm. Very good advice to bring sunscreen and drink plenty of water during the day.
Worth it
Emily_R, Feb 2023
Had a great time, your guide was lively and experienced, especially loved the Wildlife Park. Made many new friends and saw things I otherwise wouldn’t have!
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for the wonderful feedback on your tour experience to the Blue Mountains. We try to explore to more remote places off the beaten path while still seeing the main highlights. We're so pleased that you enjoyed Featherdale wildlife park and the comeraderie of the small group.
