James was a fantastic guide. I believe the animals knew him at Featherdale. He took us to a few off script views of the mountains that were breathtaking. The road travel was a bit long but not boring. I highly recommend this tour.

Beautiful mountains
Louise_C, Apr 2024
Really enjoyed Featherdale wildlife park, seeing the blue mountains from the various Lookout points and walking around the national park. The driver was very knowlegable and friendly. For us scenic world was too much like a theme park being rallied around in queues with lots and lots of other people. If you prefer to see the blue mountains focus more on the national park side.

A must do while in Sydney. The blue mountains were extraordinary and the Featherdale Zoo exceeded expectations with up close animal encounters.

Fantastic tour to the blue mountains. Despitecpoor weather we gsined a real sense of the scale and beauty of the area. Mike, our guide/driver had expert knowledge and pointed out mant interesting facts. We had a coffee stop and a lunch break in two of the beautiful villages abd tine to look roundcthe local areas and shops. We also vidited Scenic World. I eoukd recommend this private tour.
Absolutely amazing!
Stephanie_M, Jan 2024
James was our driver and he was amazing! He knew everyone we ran into so we got the inside scoop on things. Our first stop was Featherdale Zoo and we had the best time there. Even the animals knew and responded to James. James told us information about each animal and bird we saw. This was the highlight of my day. Next was Three Sisters but fog had set in so we couldn’t see. James went back there after Scenic World but we still couldn’t see. After returning to Sydney we asked James if he would take us by Marsh Cove so we could see where NCIS Sydney is filmed. We were able to see enough that we went back the next day. If you are considering a trip to the Blue Mountains be sure to do so through Viator. THEY ARE AMAZING FROM START TO FINISH!! Well done matey!
Perfect Blue Mountains day
Melanie_S, Jan 2024
James was knowledgeable, personable and respectful of time and our interests. We were never rushed and felt he guided us in maximizing our time at each stop. He even insured we were safely on the correct ferry back to Darling Harbor to create a memorable finish to a great day.

This was such an amazing day trip from Sydney! Our guide, James, was very friendly & knowledgeable.

HELENE_B, Oct 2023
Very nice daydrip. It allowed us to see the most interesting sites with a good schedule. James was a very kind and professional guide. The private tour is a plus. We could visit places at our own rythm and James fully adapted to it.

Drive through Blue Mountains
Madeline_N, Sep 2023
Very fun! Got to see a lot of the iconic sights. Not a lot of time for true hiking or exploring. This trip is mostly a scenic drive to see the mountains. Stopped for lunch which was very tasty.

Avoid that expérience
Charlotte_G, Jul 2023
Very expensive , better rent your own car , car wasn’t confortable. The driver was nice but he was rushing us , he start by tell it us we need to leave at 2.30 and we have to call the company to confirm we booked a ten hours tour . We wanted to see more but he wasn’t happy and we had to leave at 3.30 anyway!
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Hi Charlotte, I am very sorry to to hear that the tour was not up to your expectations. It is good that you found the driver was nice. But it is not certainly acceptable that he misunderstood the timings of the day, and he made you feel rushed. I am sorry that I was not available to be your guide on that day, but I will certainly be talking to him about the need to know the length of the tour, and to make the tour as enjoyable as possible. I hope that you can visit Sydney again. Mike
Good tour, but some items questionable!
Sarah_R, Jun 2023
Great tour and info, driver of car was questionable. Also the title of the tour is miss leading when we booked this we thought we were paying for the blue mountain tour and featherdale zoo. Turns out you have to pay extra for the zoo later.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Sarah for your review. I am happy you had a great tour in the beautiful Blue Mountains. I'm very sorry that there was some confusion about what was included based on the title only. However, it is very clear as to what is and isn't included, by reading the tour's listing and details . Mike
Mike was fantastic!
Kyle_M, Jun 2023
Mike was awesome! No need to look any further. He took great care of us and was extremely good to our 11 month old son! Fantastic tour!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
