Great views of the Blue Mountains, but the so-called wildlife park is like a kids petting zoo, with all the attendant smells and dirt, not what I would call a wildlife park! And when the driver asked for gratuities (presumably because there were no Australians on the trip who would know better) it just capped a disappointing day trip for... More

Its a full day trip which we all enjoyed. We saw the mountains, which do look blue!. We went to an animal sanctuary and actually saw Kangaroos, Koalas, Dingo and Tazmanian Devils as well as lots of indigenous birds and reptiles. We moved to various locations on Skyway and cable-car which was an experience to the rain forest, fortunately it... More

You have to go and visit Blue mountains to understand what I am trying to convey, the journey from Sydney to the mountains, the flora and fauna, wildlife parks and finally the mountains themselves were scintillating. The Scenic World maintains the high skywalk, cable car and probably the world's steepest cable train in the mountains which made the trip a... More

You will get a chance to see a bit of the countryside, the zoo with ever so sweet Koalas and on the way back the tour showed us the Olympic Village and gave us some history of the area. Really worth while! The Blue Mountains are very attractive but a far cry from my beloved Gran Canyon in Arizona or... More

Most people tour Sydney for the night life and teh city expereince. We were there for just 2 nights and 3 days,and were able to capture the natural beauty of teh blue Mountians (a bus ride away). It was beautiful to see the countryside and then return to the city life at night-a good balance. the Wildlife at the conservation... More

Very nice trip. U can either book it via traveling agency or go on your own with the train. Just 2hours from Sydney city center u find yourself in the middle of wild and beautiful nature. U have the chance to see Three sisters, and walk around the touristic paths. Also Very good for those who are not great tourists,... More

Really enjoyable day out (full day). The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and had lots of good stories to tell, some very funny!! The blue mountains very nice, but not all that impressive. It has become very commercialised!! We went to Scenic World as part of the trip, great for kids, bit of fun but not fantastic. Also went... More

This was an excellent all day tour of the beautiful Blue Mountain area. Many places to visit with wonderful views and sights to see. Great luncheon along the way. Got some unbelievable pictures including some panorama shots already printed and framed up.

Four of us headed off to view the Blue Mountains and its seven sisters from Sydney a bus load of other tourists on a glorious sunny day. A wonderfully exhilarating experience which will be long remembered. You could skip the lunch Provided on this trip and have better for less money yourself. An alternative way to visit the Mountains would... More
