  • This tour was amazing!

  • Trip was great, beautiful views and gorgeous setting. Wildlife park was a bit disappointing but was still a very enjoyable day.

  • It was an unfortunate weather but the tour was full on the Christmas day.
    We wanted to have a bit more time at Wildlife park.
    If the weather was good, we would have wanted more time at Blue Mountains, too.
    Our driver guide was great and enjoyed his commentary.

  • We were happy with our experience. Though I must point out that this isn't so much a tour as it is an easy transport system. We were driven from Sydney to the Blue Mountains at the Scenic World where we were on our own for 2 hours to go on the different rides. From there we were taken to a lovely village called Leura to have lunch. There are many restaurants and a lovely bakery so I don't recommend the lunch option as you have a lot of choice at the village and the food at the restaurant we were taken was ok at best. From there we were driven to the wildlife park and were on our own to visit the park for 1.5hours. The gift shop at the park has very reasonable prices for souvenirs, I highly recommend it. We were then driven from the park back to Sydney. Overall we recommend this experience!

  • Great day trip.Highly recommended must do trip when in Sydney. Our tour guide / bus driver Brad was awesome. Very professional, kind knowledgeable and great with tour tips. Great job AAT Kings

  • This tour was better than I expected. You can take it easy or you can hike to the waterfalls. I hiked to the waterfalls. The waterfall didn't have much water but it was a grest hike! The guide was knowledgeable and the bus was comfortable.

  • it was a good tour programme but in fact you don't need to take a tour.because you buy a ticket which is 39 aud,and which enables you to use cable car, etc full day pass.
    but it is to busy and you can use only once
    if I go again I will choose to go not with a tourthere is a train to close area and you can take bus from there it is much more easier

  • We had a fabulous day! Our trip started with a pickup at the hotel and a comfortable ride to the Blue Mountains. We arrived at Scenic World before the crowds and were able to ride the Cableway and Railway into the valley. Loved the views traveling up and down to the valley, as well as the opportunity to do some hiking. From there we drove around the area and had the opportunity to view the Blue Mountains from some great lookouts. Would definitely recommend this tour.

  • Good adventure for a day. Pick up went smoothly, bus was equipped with everything glass roof, AirCo, Toilette, phone charger, wifi. Driver / Guide is absolutely amazing. Shared a lot of info and repeated our options, expected return times from activities, etc. many times. BM is nice, although I could have spend more time watching it. Visiting a little Zoo was a surprise, but we missed the cruising option back to Sydney.
    Trip was operated by AAAKings. Viator is a reseller I think as many others and offered almost everything for the day. The only one missing option is a boat trip back to Sydney. Please include this in your offer in the future.

  • This was a fantastic Tour from start to finish with our Tour Guide and Driver Tom. We received an on going commentary from Tom about each place we were passing. He also gave us some unexpected stops for photos and took us to see the Olympic Stadium and village on the road back even although this was not part of our tour. The Blue Mountains were beautiful even though there was a little cloud and seeing the animals and birds at Featherdale Wildlife Centre was also a wonderful experience. Stopping at Leura for a lovely lunch and also had time to visit the shops in the Town.
    Overall a great Tour and would definitely recommend.
