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.

The All Inclusive Full-Day trip to the Blue Mountains was a highlight of my trip to Australia. The guide was extremely knowledgable and the pace of the trip was perfect. I would highly recommend a visitor to Australia/Sydney take advantage of visiting this beautiful area. The visit to the animal sanctuary and the cable car, rail, and tram ride made the experience special. An added attraction (due to the guide's choose) was the hike to the Prince Henry Cliff Walk.

Very nice tour and great value for the money. Guide was a bit aloof or depressed with stories of people or animals dying or afraid to die. But after lunch explained that he was having health issues in the morning and feeling much better. He then became more engaged and his sense of humor improved. He was excellent with instructions and directions, letting everyone know meeting places, what to do, etc. Really enjoyed the wonderful vistas of the 3 sisters and short hikes. Timing was perfect considering all that the tour included. Overall a wonderful tour if you don’t mind having limited time for activities as a trade off for all the inclusions. We always felt relaxed. Great tour and value which we recommend without hesitation.

We had a fabulous tour with Graham as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and prompt. This tour enabled you to see as much as possible in the day. The koala sanctuary and feeding the wallaby’s was our favorite. Lunch included was very good, and scenic world was fun. You can hike a longer path or take a short one at scenic world. Fabulous day.

This was an amazing package. We booked many adventures through Viator and we were NOT disappointed with any of the trips. Every trip was great and well organised. We booked all our trips over the year before we went to Australia and it worked out superb.

Well organized trip, many sites to see. The trip to the Blue Mouniwas great. The driver, Tom, was very punctual, but could be a little more friendly.

Because of the bush fires our stop at Scenic World was canceled and we were given a refund for that part of the tour. The bus driver Jed did a great job considering a number of roads and lookouts were closed due to the fires. Lunch was fantastic, especially the fish and chips. The river cruise at the end didn't amount to anything. Disappointing.

Due to bush fires and the weather, the tour was vastly modified and we were not able to do a lot of things on the itinerary. Tour guide/bus driver did try to compensate by showing us other things but still wasn’t the full experience we were hoping for. Nonetheless, still a good trip.
