This day trip is well worth doing to get out of Sydney and see some of the surrounding landscape. The tour guide/driver was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the local area. We stopped at feathersdale wildlife park first. We got there early before the main opening so got to have photos and stroke the koalas before the queues. The walk... More

My family of 6 (adults) had a great experience on this tour. It's a family owned company and they do a terrific job making sure their customers have the best experience possible. Our tour group was small, 11 people (max of 14), which helps make the tour experience so much more personalized and fun. The tour van was comfortable and... More

Brilliant final leg to our 4 days in Sydney. Rob our guide was great fun, and sitting with him chatting away in the front seat made the journey to and from the mountains fly by. Wildlife park was great, Kangaroos and Wallabies the highlight - would have liked a little more time to explore the rest of the place. When... More

My friend and I had a wonderful time on this tour. Petting koalas and kangaroos at Featherdale was one of the coolest things I've ever done and I've had some pretty amazing adventures in my travels. Featherdale is amazing! The Blue Mountains are really beautiful, as is the boardwalk through the rain forest at Scenic World where we rode the... More

This trip was okay. Pros included being first at Featherdale to pet the Koalas and some beautiful sights of the Blue Mountains. Cons included the tour guides borderline/ blatantly discriminatory jokes and running diatribe, the truly scary "hotel" (more like a hostel that you would see in a horror movie) where you have lunch and the large portion of the...

Very nice tour of the Blue Mountain area. Rob our tour guide knew the area well and was great at giving details about each stop on the tour. The small tour group was nice because you could easily ask questions or make suggestions. Our stop for lunch was nice and the food was decent. It was fun to take the... More
