I will begin by saying this was a good way to see the Blue Mountain area. We found their "office" with very little problem but they were a bit busy and directions to the first departure point was a bit confusing. There are quite a few stops - all the major points of interest in addition to a number of... More

We have recently stayed in Katoomba for 4 days and had made full use of the explorer bus. We were lucky to be on Jimmy's bus for many times. Even my 5-year-old daughter were really amazed by him, in particular his ability to manage so many languages. He remembers the nationalities of all passengers and where they might want to... More

This is a must visit place around Sydney. The cable car rides show you a good portion of the valley and the steep train ride is like a roller coaster ride. The beauty of the place is magnificent!!!

We visited the blue mountains last week and had a fantastic time. The drivers Jim and Dave were fantastic. They were very polite and extremely helpful and made us feel vey welcome and talked about lots of very interesting things on our journey. I would really recommend this tour.

I choose to visit the Blue Mountains on a day trip from Sydney without using a tour. I took the train from Sydney's Central Station to Katoomba. The train trip takes about two hours. The train has four cars (which I think is standard, at least for this time of year) of which the first and last cars are "quiet"... More

We spent lots of time on the bus with three different drivers and all of them were fantastic. Very helpful with making the most of the attractions, what to see, when and even how to see as much as possible in the shortest time.

We went to Katoomba on Wednesday 2 July 2014. We hoped on the bus at the beginning and went to the Adventure area where the railway was, the cable car and skylink. All of which were good. We then waited at bus stop number 10 but no bus turned up, at all. We checked and re-checked the timetable and we... More

This is an excellent way to see the Blue Mountains, especially when the weather is too uncomfortable to be able to do a lot of walking. It drives by all the major attractions, and stops long enough to be able to take photos. The drivers are excellent and provide a good commentary.Most of the time it is a half hourly... More
