  • Really enjoyable and i would do it again with Viator.

  • Awesome tour organised by AAT Kings. Our guide Henry was very efficient and quite informative. Opt for the small group - it is worth the spend

  • Professional tour guide aka driver who can share enormous amount of travel tips and knowledge about the destination, definitely worth the money to book a tour with Viator !

  • Awesome tour

  • Amazing tour got to see the blue mountains and scenic world. Scenic world was far out the best place I've ever been to.
    I just wish the tour bus would give us some time to grab some coffee in the morning.
    Last but not least do not get the lunch option. Lunch was
    pretty much garbage.

  • Just one word... Amazing :

  • The Blue Mountains were picturesque, the wildlife tour allowed you to close to many animals including Koala.

  • Long day but well rewarding and fantastic views of the mountains

  • Beautiful place. And the guide was great! We had a problem with the bus and could handle it very well and we didn't miss anything. I just wish we had spent more time at the Mountains and had more time to walk along the scenic park.

  • I must read the descriptions better. This is a very toruistic endavour with very little true nature. I think the title is a little misleading. Never the less, it was a good day out and the vdriver/tourguide was friendly and professional.
