  • weather problem....... they dont advertise that if the fogs in, you wont be able to 3 ft in front of you let alone the scenery......

  • Amazing tour.

  • Great day tour out of Sydney, has a bit of everything, plenty of time to take it all in.

  • This day trip had everything we were looking for - amazing views, rides and walks at Scenic World, and up close and personal time with the native wildlife at Featherdale. The lunch portions were huge, and it was nice to have the food pre-ordered and ready when we arrived, but there were other cute cafes in Leura that seemed like solid lunch options, if you decided not to go with the lunch option through Viator.

  • A marvelous day and tour.

  • we liked the tour a lot. Departure and return times were reasonable. We did not purchase the lunch offered by the tour but the town had other options and enough time to look around. Guide was very knowledgable and provided many cool information.

  • Excellent tour with a knowledgeable driver/guide.

  • We had an amazing time on this tour. Our bus was packed for the day, but our driver, John was an awesome tour guide who was very friendly and kept us on schedule. He shared a lot of information with us as we were driving to and from the Blue Mountains. I HIGHLY recommend getting tickets for Scenic World. There are three rides you can go on that give you stunning views of the mountains. Lunch in the town of Leura was really nice. Even if you don't get the lunch option, there are many restaurants and cafes you can go to. Featherdale wildlife park was one of my favorite parts because you get to interact with some of the animals! Overall, it was a really great experience.

  • Excellent and funny tour guide.
    Scenic world add-on is totally worth it.
    The restaurant was packed during lunch.

  • Amazing tour. Beautiful coach and tour guide. Tom was very friendly and informative.

    But it's a bit rushed in the viewing stop. Plenty time in the Blue Mountains.
    We did the tour including lunch. Good food and large portion.
