    We really enjoy it

    Jason was very informative and made the day a fun adventure. Pickup was a bit chaotic that morning with so many groups getting picked with different tours.

  • 28-Oct-2019

    Fantastic day out to The Blue Mountains and Wldlife tour. We also choosen the option of Railway, Skyrail and Cable Car, this is a must as the views are spectacular. The Wildlife zoo is great, you get to see all the animals they have there. I would recommend and go back there again.

  • 14-Oct-2019

    Really great trip. Excellent coach and driver. Only recommendation would be to allow more time at the blue mountains experience centre and perhaps miss the wildlife park n the way back which was average. Overall definitely recommend

    First, our coach driver, Peter, was an AMAZING guide. He did a great job explaining the sites we were seeing on our coach drive from Sydney to the Blue Mountains (roughly a 2 hour drive each way), and did it with humor and fun. Peter was very accommodating and made sure everyone was aware of when we would leave each location, and where he would pick us up if he needed to move. He bought cookies and gummy snakes to give out as a snack after our lunch break, and even gave each of the passengers a mini-Koala as a keepsake after our visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Lastly, Peter even dropped my daughter and I off at a public bus stop since it was closer to our hotel than returning us to the Holiday Inn where we originally started the tour. Overall, it was an enjoyable day in the Blue Mountains with amazing sites to see (The Three Sisters, Scenic World, the city of Leura), and a wonderful tour guide in Peter that made the day even better. I would definitely recommend the Blue Mountains day tour with AAT Kings.

    Trys was an awesome tour guide. He was knowledgeable of the locale and sights. He seemed genuinely interested in telling us about the places and things in the tour and his passion for his work really came through. He was very forthcoming with tips and answers for any of our questions during the tour. I took one star away because of the proportion of the amount of driving around to the amount of time we had at each location in the itinerary; I didn't feel there was enough time to explore and do things at each location. I took another star away because of the Featherdale Wildlife Park. Although they had a bunch of plaques and accolades commending them of their work, the place was filthy and the animals seemed overcrowded.

    The whole day trip was incredible and the tour guide Jason was great and really knowledgable and funny. The zoo was great we got to feed kangaroo’s!! And the view of the Blue Mountains was definitely worth flying round the world for!

  • 03-Jul-2019

    This was a fantastic trip with AAT Kings! Our guide, Brad was knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to see everything!

    This tour was amazing! I was traveling solo so I went by myself and loved every minute. Our guide, Henry, was the nicest and most knowledgeable guy. He really made the tour worth every penny.

    The mountains were absolutely STUNNING. Pictures don’t do them justice. At Scenic World (second stop on the tour), I opted not to pay the additional fee for the rides and just walked some of the trails instead. I’m really glad I did that. We then had lunch in a cute little town just a short drive from Scenic World. (It’s not necessary to include lunch when you book the tour as there are plenty of places to choose from.) After lunch, we went to Featherdale Wildlife Sanctuary, where we saw tons of indigenous animals and got to feed kangaroos and wallabies! At Featherdale, there was an option to get your picture taken with a koala for $20 AUD. Heads up though: Henry told us that the state of New South Wales does not allow people to actually hold koalas (i.e., your picture will just be you standing next to one). You can hold koalas in Queensland, though, so if you’re planning to visit some place up north I’d suggest getting your picture there. The day ended with an optional river cruise back to Sydney (about $16 AUD). It was really nice to get off the bus and see the city from a different perspective.

    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Sydney for the very first time. You’ll be in good hands, as the staff at AATKings works very hard and cares deeply about making sure their customers have a great time. And if anyone from AATKings reads this... Henry deserves a raise. :)
