This trip included everything - an hour at Featherdale Wildlife Park, Lunch and Shopping at Leura Garage, Scenic World entry, a few scenic picture stops, and a river cruise into a drop-off of Circular Quay or Darling Harbor so you can enjoy additional shopping or dinner during the sunset near the Harbor Bridge and Opera House. The guide was knowledgeable, wi-fi on the bus was not only available but free, and on the ferry ride we each got 1 free beverage of our choice (including alcoholic). Our favorite experiences on this excursion included feeding the wallabies at Featherdale and the hike at Scenic World to The Three Sisters!
One very minor criticism would be that, as a younger couple, we could have done without the lunch/shopping at Leura Garage, especially if it would have extended our time at both Featherdale and Scenic World purely because of how much fun these stops were in comparison. We felt very rushed in both of those parks; for scenic world specifically, there is a lot of time lost simply waiting for the trams. We were able to ride all 3 (yellow, red, and blue) but definitely did not see everything because we chose to hike to The Three Sisters and were on a time crunch with the tram wait. However, these minor criticisms were not enough of an influence for us to rate this excursion lower, because it was still completely worth it just to check-out.

The three sisters were a nice sight with a nice story but the amazing rain forest was truly amazing, unique and once in life time experience. Primitive plants and landscape frozen in time

We have to give our props to AAT Kings and our guide, Smokey, for a fantastic day out! Its a really long drive going to the Blue Mountains but our guide gave interesting trivia along the way and it was a smooth ride that we took a little nap as well. Lunch was lovely, it was nice that we had multiple menu options to choose from. The cruise back was definitely a great option so we didnt have to suffer through rush hour traffic back to Sydney.

Being an all inclusive we expected that the time for visiting each site would have been “just enough”. Actually our guide/driver Steve was very helpful giving suggestions to enjoy at most each site. Great experience

Major cudos to our guide Steve.. he was great.. gave us a history lesson on Australia, which really made the trip memorable. He was funny and informative.
Each aspect of the excursion was excellent and a definite recommend to friends!

Overall a really good tour operated by AAT Kings. Our driver Jon was very knowledgeable and kept the bus entertained on some of the longer driving stints with interesting facts and history of the area and wider Sydney region. There was plenty of time at each stop to do the main activities and get photos- which hasn't always been the case on other tours I've been on. Lunch was also really good with a good selection of choices available. The only slight disappointment was the attractions at Scenic World which only lasted a few minutes each and we had to wait in long queues for. Perhaps a longer stop at the 3 sisters lookout or main mountain town instead would have been better. But overall very good and I would definitely purchase a tour with AAT Kings again.

Pick up fairly good time. Big John S was a brilliant driver and tour guide very helpful and entertaining. First stop Featherland Wildlife Park was a great stop seeing Koalas Kangaroos wallaby’s Wombats snakes birds great collection and all very well cared for. Lunch at a little town was a bit too early and the menu that was offered was 2 pastas and pork but when we got there a far better menu on offer such as Pizza such a simple addition to what we were offered but had to book ours 2 hours in advance. Then onto Scenic World which was great fun. Lastly cruise down the river to Darling Harbour and Circular Quay Brilliant day just need to sort out the Lunch. Thanks to John S for making our day

Long day, bus was comfortable but hot, should have a least offered water, rushed through zoo, should have more time there and less in the lunch town,blue mountains were nice, nothing compared to the grand canyon, also it was a slow day and barely had time for the rides which were no big deal, walking down below is more important but ran out of time. Boat ride was like being on a bus with no commentary
