This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, 217 - 229 Kildare Rd Doonside, Blacktown, New South Wales 2767 Australia

After meeting your guide at your centrally located CBD hotel, 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 pose for the camera with the animals.

Stop At: The Three Sisters, Echo Point road Echo Point, Katoomba, New South Wales 2780 Australia

Next, make your 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.

Stop At: Scenic World Blue Mountains, Corner Violet Street & Cliff Drive, Katoomba, New South Wales 2780 Australia

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.

Stop At: Parramatta River, Sydney, New South Wales Australia

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.

Tour guide Jed made trip to this magic place even more interesting than it would be if we went there by ourself. A little bit expensive compared to train and walking alone but worth it. Times on attractions should be a little longer.

This is a must visit when you are at Sydney. It was a great ride to the Blue Mountains except that weather ditched us and didn't get a good view of the 3 Sisters. So do check out the weather at Blue mountains before confirming the trip. Enjoyed the Scenic world rides especially the train ride was thrilling. Do try the Kangaroo burger at Leura village, and we had fun at the wildlife park getting up-close with Koala's and Kangaroos. The bus left and arrived as scheduled and the driver/tour guide was okay. Highly recommended!

Was in Sydney for work and had one day to tour around. I signed up at the last minute and was not disappointed. Between the wildlife center, the visit to the town of Leura, various stops in the scenic Blue Mountains and the boat ride back into Sydney under the Harbour Bridge, we packed a LOT into that one day. Jed the tour guide was a blast and made the day fun and kept us all on time (no easy task). Would definitely recommend!

The tour guide Mike was great fun and gave interesting facts as the day went on. The tour is family friendly with a variety of activities to suit a range of interests; sight seeing, walking, food, boutique shops, animals, scenic cable rides, river/habour cruise. Very good value for money and the coach was well equipped and comfortable. A great day out!

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The sites alone were worth it - simply amazing views at multiple locations. The extra stop at the wildlife park to feed kangaroos was exactly what a tourist to Australia needed! And Jed the bus driver was excellent and made the whole experience fun and full of interesting information.

I feel that this tour is pretty 'touch and go'. I think visitors who purchase this tour should bear in mind that it is actually a long time before we embark on a tour as it picks up many people at many hotels.. The bus was a little cramped for my liking (and I'm not big-sized), and the aircon didn't seem to work well as many were complaining about the heat. I also felt that the tour was rushed, especially the part where we took the Scenic Skyway etc, I had to run to catch the transport twice, because the group of people in the same tour had to stick together to take the same cable car or something, and it didn't help that it was quite crowded. It left me with very little time to really experience Blue Mountains since I was rushing. The wildlife park was actually quite all right, as we are pretty much left to our own devices. In fact it was my favourite part of the tour. In general, my advice for people taking this tour is to just be aware that this is a pretty much 'touch and go' tour at Blue Mountains - perhaps maybe about 2 hours or so in total. If you would like an in-depth tour, I would suggest going with a smaller tour group (there were about 30 of us), and perhaps to make sure that you have more time at Blue Mountains.

I would only recommend this for those who don't want to walk much and get a brief over view of the Blue Mountains. There is very little time available at the lookout so you can't get an type of hikes in or even do the steps down to the 3 Sister bridge. We got it done by running down the path and spent a couple of minute took some pictures and ran back up.There are several look out points but did don't have time to do them.
The bus driver Jad was very good and enjoyed all the information he shared.
