What a wonderfully experience. Our guide, Barry was great. A great driver, give us so much information about the area. Answered all our questions. The Featherdale rescue park was delightful, feeding the animals. The Skyline park was great, beautiful views. Lines were a bit long but moved pretty quickly. A must experience if in Sydney. Oh, boat ride too!

An amazing experience exploring the blue mountains plus sanctuary visit.

Firstly, after a mix up of dates, they managed to fit us in at late notice and were really quick to respond. Our bus driver Aaron was amazing, lots of great commentary and really helpful. Would thoroughly recommend!
Wrong expectations but friendly guide
Mavis_H, Feb 2024
Our guide Ben was friendly and knowledgeable so the two stars off were mainly for the wrong expectations. The description says the entire trip lasts about 10 hours so I thought we’d have plenty of time at each attraction but turned out that we spent about 5 hours on the bus. The itinerary packs multiple stops so there was definitely not enough time for each stop if you actually want to have a more in-depth experience. For example, we only had 60 mins at the Featherdale Wildlife Park (which was an amazing zoo) and not only did I not get to check out every mammal housed there, I didn’t get to check out any bird sections. I literally rushed out of the zoo to make the meeting time and was already one minute late (didn’t get to browse the gift shop either). If you were looking to hit as many tourist attractions as possible, this is for you. But if you’re like me who was looking to spend some reasonable time at each point for your experience, find something else that packs only 1-2 destinations because it’s a long drive in and out the city already.

Highly recommend this tour. The stop at Featherdale was so neat. We were able to feed baby kangaroos and wallabies. Scenic World was a great way to see the Blue mountains
Featherdale and BlueMountain are Exceptional Experio
Susan_B, Feb 2024
Our guide Ben was fabulous. He allowed enough time to take pictures at each stop and at memorable stopping points. The journey to Blue Mountain was well planned with numerous stops before reaching the mountain. The stop at Featerdale Wildlife park allowed us to not only see but also interact with the kangaroos and have our photo taken with a koala. The Scenic World rides- cableway, railway, and skyway were unique and gave us great views of Three Sisters, Jamison Valley, and Katoomba Falls. The town of Laure was very nice, the stop there was a little too short- only time to get lunch and not really see the shops. Ben was always making sure everyone in the group was accounted for and was having a good experience. I would definitely recommend this tour. Sue
Great Day Out - Well Planned Throughout
Geoffrey_B, Feb 2024
The trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park was enchanting. Nice town to stop for us to purchase lunch. The Blue Mountains are spectacular. Scenic World was a little busy but still managed all the rides (but walking at pace!) Value for money with a great guide - highly recommended way to spend an action-packed day.
Great tour in Sydney
Thomas_M, Feb 2024
Views were fantastic and Ben explained everything. He made it a great time. Animal park was great fun and boat ride was perfect ending to the day.
weiweileehsu, Feb 2024
We love this tour, and our tour guide Ben is the best! No only he continuously introducing Sydney’s best to us, he also gives us a lot of little treats ❤️! I will definitely recommend this tour and hopefully you get Ben as your tour guide.

Excellent value for money. Our driver/guide Max was fun, friendly and very informative. He was punctual and knowledgeable. Featherdale sanctuary is included in this trip and it was great to get up close to some native animals. Scenic world was great fun!
Blue Mountains and Featherdale Wildlife Park
Mark_B, Feb 2024
We enjoyed our tour with Aaron. He made the trip enjoyable. The wildlife park was very enjoyable Was good to get Koala pictures again. Glad we arrived early on the lunch stop places overflowed. Was a great day and value.
Great day out
Cara_V, Feb 2024
The wildlife park was really good, would have liked to spend more time there but then we only just had enough tie to queue for all the rides at scenic world
Fun day at Blue Mountains
Mike, Feb 2024
Excellent trip on the whole very well managed. Would have given 5 stars except for the following: 1. Insufficient time at the wildlife reserve - an extra 15 - 20 minutes would have enabled us to get completely round. 2. Despite being told it was a quiet day the queues at scenic world meant we had to forgo the 30 minute walk. Perhaps this was because several coaches arrived together and maybe in future these could be staggered. 3. The ferry was a public ferry with no commentary - perhaps in future the guide could provide this.
Great guide!
John_Q, Feb 2024
Very nice driver and guide!!! Enjoyed the day. Stop at Leure was a good idea and enjoyable. Recommended.
Awesome Full Day !!
Rowena_V, Feb 2024
Visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park was a compact walkthrough, didn't have to walk thru a big zoo. New to us was the cassowary bird. Pretty creature. Scenic World Blue Mountains was great. Who knew one could find cool relief in the forest floor when outside weather is 40°C (100°F). Wonderful and entertaining guide Aaron was a plus. Thank-you for a swell time. Andy&Rowena V.
Incredible experience
Dylan_N, Feb 2024

It was a fun day out and Jed was a great guide. We had a great time despite the weather at the end of the trip, thank you!
More than a scenic tour
Bob_M, Feb 2024
The choice of venues was excellent. I was not expecting much from Featherdale Wildlife Park having been to do many small zoos, but the variety of exotic wildlife and the friendly wallabees won me over The Scenic Village was a unique experience with cable cars and trams traversing the canyon walls, and the rain forest walks.
Worth the money
