  • This is a comfortable tour, I can recommend it to anyone. You will see spectacular views of the Three sisters and will enjoy an unforgettable walk in the Scenic World. In the Featherdale wildlife reserve you can see the most unique animals of this country. If you like doing a lot in one day, this is your tour.

  • Four of us went on the tour, we were picked up on time from a nearby hotel, the guide and the driver were a comedy double act which made for an entertaining day. The trip was well planned and professionally run and was excellent value. The bus was very comfortable, the lunch was good and well organised. The venues were stunning. Once again viator has exceeded our expectations .

  • A good day trip to see something of Australia beyond Sydney

  • Very very bad waste of time and money they always late some times more than hour

  • Excellent experience. Our driver Danny was superb. Didnt rate the lunch though

  • This is not worth the money! We made three stops, one to the Blue Mountains which is not what it's all cracked up to be. The only fun part of this stop was hiking down and back up the mountain. The next stop was to a pre selected restaurant They probably get a kickback for stopping there where the food was ordered in advance and sitting under heat lamps waiting for the bus to arrive, which made it luke-warm. They cram you in and rush you out just in enough time for the next bus to arrive, it's a scam and way over priced for what they give you. The last stop was to a petting farm. It was nice but there wasn't enough time spent there because we had to get back into the city plus it was over priced. It would be better to go to the zoo if you want to see kangaroos and koalas.

  • awesome....

  • I took this tour on Friday, January 19th,2018. There were a few disappointments, but I'm not sure if it was the fault of the driver or simply the crowds. The driver gave no commentary as we drove through Sydney and out to the Blue Mountains. Traffic was heavy, we arrived at the overview site too late to see the aborigine show. It was a very hot day, by the afternoon when we arrived at the wildlife park, most of the animals were resting in their shelters. Maybe the driver doesn't have the authority to change the timetable, but it would have been better to go to the wildlife park in the morning, when the animals would be active and see the Blue Mountains in the afternoon when perhaps they would be less crowded.

  • Very cool tour.

  • We had a wonderful day. Our driver, Tom, was excellent! He had a great sense of humour and was a wealth of knowledge. We learned so much about Sydney, the Blue Mountains area and everything in between.
    The Blue Mountains are beautiful!
    Thanks for a great day.
