After meeting your guide at your centrally located pickup location, travel approximately 45-minutes towards Featherdale Wildlife Park, one of Sydney's favorite native wildlife sanctuaries home to iconic Australian animals such as kangaroos, koala's, and a range of stunning native bird-life. Here you'll have the opportunity to take a selfie with a koala, get up close for a face-to-face encounter as you hand-feed and pose for the camera with the animals.
Next, enjoy lunch at a cafe in Leura. After lunch, your tour will make it's way to Echo Point Katoomba, the perfect vantage point for the iconic Three Sisters; a stunning natural rock formation named after an Aboriginal legend which describes a tale of three sisters turned to stone. Here, let your guide take you back in time as you explore the legends of the local Indigenous people and discover the history surrounding the rock formation. You'll also have time for the perfect photo opportunity as you look-out across the Jamison Valley and view the unique blue haze that covers the skyline.
Up next is Scenic World, one of the Blue Mountains most frequently visited attractions. For the nature lovers, soak up the fresh air and see the world heritage listed rainforest canopy as you make your way through the lush greenery along the boardwalks. If you're up for a little more adventure, scenic world is home to the worlds steepest incline railway as well as an incredible scenic cable-way ride. The cable-way is a fully enclosed glass floor cabin providing unique views over the valley out to the Three Sisters, Orphan Rock, Mt Solitary and the stunning Katoomba Falls. You'll feel like you're flying as you travel over the breathtaking Katoomba Falls - a sight you won't want to miss. If the glass floor isn't for you, there is solid flooring with seating available around the outskirts of the cabin.
End your day on a high as you bypass the peak hour traffic with a relaxing cruise down the Parramatta River back to either Darling Harbour or Circular Quay. See some of Sydney's most expensive real estate as you cruise along the river and end with the perfect harbor photo opportunities as you arrive back in the CBD.

This was a excellent trip, Aaron our driver and tour guide was exceptional, his knowledge and humour made this trip wonderful, he was also a true gent. The tour takes you to a animal zoo and the various different creatures are amazing to see, you can feed baby kangaroos who are very sweet and gentle. We had lunch provided on our trip, which was very nice. You then go to the blue Mountains and the stunning scenery, which can then be view by cable cars and the mountain railway, you finally finish on a boat trip back to Sydney which takes you back under the Sydney Harbour bridge. This tour is well worth it.

Mark was very good and gave a nice verbal image to match locations we visited.
It was a very good all day tour that ended with a Cat ride.

The trip to the Blue Mountains is definitely worth it. It was beyond what I was expecting. During this full day of travel you will be experiencing numerous modes of travel (tram, bus, cable car, boat, vertical train). If you are afraid of heights this may not be for you. There is some walking, steps and steep hills during the day. Some of our fellow travelers who had mobility issues were not able to enjoy the full experience. The trip included a stop in little Leanu where we had lunch on our own and time to walk around.

Need to start by praising our guide Aaron! He was funny, informative and even helped a couple whose tour bus did not pick them up... which made their day! The day could not have been more beautiful with blue skies and sun. There was a lovely mix of animals and nature on this trip with enough time to explore each one. Would recommend this tour!

Graham was an amazing guide. If there was anything that may be a constructive comment, it was a little long and the boat trip back to Sydney was not noted on the original trip description.
Loved the destinations on the trip.

Graham was a delightful commentator. The visit to Featherdale was excellent as was the time in the Blue Mountains and Scenic World. We also liked the commentary on our River Cruise returning to Circular Quay.

Excellent tour, with knowledgeable tour guide. Even though it was a rainy and foggy day in the Blue Mountains, we had a great time.

Great tour, good value. Graham was our shuttle driver and guide and was outstanding. Wildlife park was fun, could feed wallabies and kangaroos. Good lunch included. Rides at Scenic World were fun and gave great views of Blue Mtns. Did not see any fire damage.

Jack was our guide, he went above and beyond to give us a great day out, with three bonus stops not on the itinerary. The twelve apostles and ocean road were spectacular, and we also got to see koalas in the eucalyptus trees, along with another stop by a golf course to see quite a few kangaroos. Also many white and colorful cockatoos. Jack was entertaining with his humor and packed a lot in to maximize our once in a lifetime experience. Can’t beat the price, great value for money, highly recommend. Sunshine a great bonus.

Featherdale was highlight because we have yet to really see Blue Mountains..fog and mist so didnt see the 3 sisters or much of the terrain. Boat ride ok, not sure why that is used as the end of tour.
