I'm sure this is a beautiful tour. Unfortunately, all we saw was dense fog! It is hard to rate a tour when you are weathered out--that is part of the risk in traveling without having spare or bad weather days. Something I will remember in the future. We did see Featherdale Wildlife Park which was a good place to pet... More

The views are wonderful over the 3 sisters and the cable car ride into the mountains is great, you don't get that long on your own to explore as it takes a while to get out to echo point. Good trip.

an excellent coach driver enabled us to get ahead of the bigger coaches. We went in a small coach which made it more pleasurable but very little time available at Katoomba. The wildlife park was interesting and the river cruise very enjoyable. Overall an expensive day out but worthwhile especially if time is limited, however do not expect to see... More

Too much time waiting in queues. Too little time to look at the blue mountains. Too long at the wildlife park. Cruise into Sydney very good. Coffee stop and lunch excellent. Our driver / guide did a good job. Small coach travel a good idea.

Rhys our tour guide and driver was very informative and knowledgable. The aboriginal display was interesting and informative. The scenic tours with the cable cars and train were great but could do with more time. Lunch was awful not worth the cost. Fern dale was brilliant up close and personnel with the animals. Finished with cruise down the river. Well... More

I joined this tour on 30 Dec 2014. As this is the peak season in Aus, there're really a hell lot of people at the blue mountains. We got instructed by the tour guide/driver (Peter) to take the cable cars and trains to enjoy the scenic view of the 'BM'. Peter also told us to have a quick lunch there.... More

Ended a whole day tour of the Blue Mountains at Ferndale wildlife Park that was brilliant. You really get in the enclosures with the kangaroos, wallabies and emus and feed them. You see loads of Koalas and can actually get to stroke one as you have your photo taken. Great expereince

Full day tour to the Blue Mountains and Wildlife Discovery tour. My favorite part was the Wildlife Discovery Park. Lots of Koalas and yes you get photos taken with them petting their back with your own camera. Priceless. Kangaroos and wallabies everywhere and yes you can pet and feed. There are other animals as well but these were my favorite.... More

A wonderful day to the Blue Mountains. Includes a stop in a surprisingly complete wildlife park – lots of koalas and wallabies, many birds, animals, and reptiles, even a large saltwater croc. Many lookout points over the Australian Grand Canyon, greener and more lush than many such canyons. A cable car and (very steep!) train ride provide additional views. Includes... More
