Your tour starts with hotel pickup (depending on your accomodation location) before you head off towards the Blue Mountains. 

Firstly a Comfort Stop in the lower Blue Mountains. Opportunity to purchase refreshments.

Visit Kings Tableland or Evans Lookout, the best place to view the wilderness of the Blue Mountains. Take a pleasant bushwalk to Wentworth Falls, one of the most spectacular lookout points in the Blue Mountains.

Stop by Leura where you can spend free time exploring this picturesque village with great shops, excellent choices for lunch to cater to everyone. Leura is very popular with the Sydney locals.

Next up is Katoomba. Katoomba is the center of the Blue Mountains and the gateway to its two most popular tourist attractions: The Three Sisters rock formations and Scenic World. It offers lovely heritage cottages, a well established hotel industry and a wide range of cafes and restaurants.

Visit the Three Sisters rock formation where you'll hear the Aboriginal legends about this famous rock formation.

If you're interested in visiting Scenic World , enjoy all the features that one of Australia’s most visited tourist attractions offers including:
• Skyway – Australia’s highest cable car.
• Cableway – Australia’s biggest cable car.
• Railway – The steepest incline passenger carrying railway in the world.
• Walkway – the longest elevated boardwalk in Australia, with 2.4 km inside a temperate rainforest.(This is at an additional cost)

Aboriginal Site, learn about aboriginal rock engravings and the Dharug, thought to have arrived in the Blue Mountains over 22,000 years ago.

En route see Homebush Bay, home of the 2000 Olympic Games.

What a great trip to the Blue Mountains! Our guide for the day was Les and our driver was Colin. Les is extremely knowledgable and made our trip all the more enjoyable with his stories and interesting facts. We were taken to interesting places away from the crowds. Scenic World was a real highlight and definitely worth the money. The ferry ride back to Circular. Key was a great way to finish the day. We would certainly recommend this trip to everyone!

I love how the driver was very knowledgeable and had very good sense of humor and I'm pretty sure everyone on this trip agreed with me on this.

The trip was fun. The driver stopped the car and allowed us to spot kangaroos by roadside. Thank you very much! :)

The beginning was very annoying. I received an e-mail saying 8.03am pick up. I assumed that as it was winter there were not so many pick ups and our collection had been brought forward. It asked me to confirm that this was acceptable, which I did. Therefore, we were ready and waiting pick up at 7.55am - we hate to be late. The bus eventually rolled up at 9.20!!!! Not a good start.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the scenery was awesome.

However, not impressed that we basically had not much option but to do Scenic World at our own expense. The tour guide collected our money (same cost if you arrived on your own) and pocketed any discount he would have received for multi booking. You could walk around the top for 2 hours if you wished but when booking it was not made clear that you would have to hang around and wait for 2 hours while others did Scenic World.

The visit to the wildlife park was not offered as advertised.

Then the 'River Cruise' turned out to be. Get off the tour bus, here is a $10 Opal card and off you go. There were 2 Ferries in at the drop off point and we were told both were going to Circular Quay. However, the one we went on took us to Brangaroo and then you had to get another ferry to Circular Quay. People we were travelling with then had to make their own way back to their hotel near Central Station at their own expense. We were collected from our hotels so expected to do a "River Cruise'and then be dropped off back at our hotel!

You need to ensure that your trip is as per your advertisement - not happy.
