What To Expect

After morning pickup at select central Sydney hotels, your small group travels in a comfortable minivan to the outskirts of Sydney. The first stop of the day is at Calmsley Hill, a working farm also home to kangaroos, emus, wombats, and koalas. Enjoy morning tea and time to wander at your leisure.

Next, travel to a lookout where you can enjoy sweeping views of Jamison Valley before heading to Eaglehawk Lookout to see the famous rock formation known as the Three Sisters. Your guide shares local Aboriginal legends about the formation and shows you the best spots for photo ops.

Stop for lunch in the town of Medlow Bath, where the Hydro Majestic Hotel sits overlooking Megalong Valley. You have the option to include a 2-course lunch at the hotel restaurant, which features fine regional foods and sweeping views from large picture windows. Drinks are not included but can be purchased during lunch. Alternatively, your guide can recommend places to eat if you do not wish to include meals.

Continue exploring a number of scenic lookouts in the afternoon, including the celebrated Govetts Leap, which boasts great views of Bridal Veil Falls, a waterfall that cascades 590 feet (180 meters) down a forested cliff. Wrap up with a walk through the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens Mt. Tomah where you can see more than 40,000 types of cool climate plant species from gardens that overlook the Blue Mountains. Your tour ends with return to Sydney in the late afternoon.

The tour quite was informative, witty & accommodating. Our tour guide (Ian) was prompt & friendly. We got more value for what we paid in terms of experiences; the lunch and the different locations we visited.

It was a big disappointment. That’s totally not our guide’s fault but because of the weather we saw literally nothing - all of the viewpoints were covered by fog and because of the weather conditions we were unable to go to Botanical garden as well. So at the end we just spent the whole day in the van :( Out last day in Australia was lost. I’d suggest to have an alternative route for the days like this because our guide mentioned that it happens in 50% of the cases.
Highly recommend!
Kris_K, Feb 2024
Matt was amazing! So knowledgeable about Australia. We learned a lot. The farm we stopped at was neat. Unfortunately we had a lot of fog the day we went and were unable to see the blue mountains. Matt changed directions and took us on a drive to see kangaroos in the wild. We saw quite a few. The botanical gardens were beautiful. The lunch was really good. Highly recommend this tour!
Great trip, great guide and wonderful day!
Karen_Y, Feb 2024
This was a really great trip! Our driver/guide was wonderful. Got to pet a koala, my husband got to meet a wombat and the animal experience was great. Blue mountains are beautiful and our lunch, which we included, was fantastic. We have done lunches before with excursions but none of them have been as good as this one was at Hydro Majestic Hotel. We ended the day with a visit to the Blue Mountains Botanical Gardens. Plus we got picked up at the door of our hotel.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Hi Thank you for reviewing our tour, and glad to hear you had a great experience. Safe travels. Regards
Devin_A, Feb 2024
Amazing tour. No other way to see so much in one day. Knowledgeable guide who gave information on everything big and small.
Great way to pass time waiting for evening flight
Rosalind_G, Feb 2024
We were picked up at our hotel right on time. We first stopped at Calmsley Hill Farm to see the animals. We were able to pet a koala on the bottom. There were wombats, kangaroos, wallabys and other animals. From there we headed to the blue mountains. The mountains are beautiful and there were great views. Lunch was included, we had pre ordered when we got on the bus so it would be ready for us. The meat pie was delicious. Other choices included spaghetti bolongese, chicken picatta and a couple of other choices. Lunch was good. After lunch we continued through the blue mountains before heading back to Sydney where we were dropped at our hotel by 5. Our flight home was not until 9:40 so we had plenty of time to get to the airport before our flight,
Foggy and Fun - a great day
Jill_A, Feb 2024
On a foggy day, John made the best of the experience ensuring we were able to see as many beautiful sites as possible! We started the day meeting koalas, kangaroos, wallaby and a wombat, then saw beautiful landscapes once the fog lifted. John was a fountain of knowledge and made the day very enjoyable and educational.
Best Tour to the Blue Mountains
Marilyn_L, Feb 2024
I can’t imagine a better tour. We had a nice excursion to the blue mountains. From being picked up in a comfortable 13 person van to our return to our original pick up, The trip was breathtaking site after breathtaking sight. The vistas were beautiful, we saw animals had coffee/tea at an animal preserve along with snacks. We had a delicious lunch at a really nice restaurant. We got to see everything that was listed on the tour and more. Our tour guide was amazing and made the trip more personal for all of us. Mario you’re the best. Your commentary through the whole trip was interesting and you tried to answer everyone’s questions. I highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
thank you for your wonderful review and so thrilled to read you had such a lovely day in the Blue Mountains with us! It is so rewarding when we receive reviews like yours! Wishing you a wonderful time in Australia!
Great Bkue Mountains visit
Christine_W, Feb 2024
We had a great day in the Blue Mountains not just because of the amazingly beautiful scenery but because we had an amazing guide. John was incredibly knowledgeable AND personable. In addition he had a great sense of humor. Our tour included lunch and we were surprised that the food was very tasty and the location lovely, not always something we would have expected on a tour. It was a long day but very enjoyable!
Foggy and wet.
Donald_L, Feb 2024
Ian was a great tour guide. Very good driver and very knowagable. Gave great presentations about the country of Australia and the sights we visited. However, we were not able to see the vista's that we toured due to heavy fog and rain. It Wes a foggy washout.
Long day but interesting tour
Don_T, Feb 2024
Lots of past and current historical details provided during the entire trip by Nigal and Heldi. Calmly Farms was nice, but since we were there before they open, not everything was open or ready for viewing. They have a variety of animals (koalas. red kangaroos, wallabies, peacocks, turkeys, cows, pigs, birds, sheep, etc). We did see a sheep dog at work. That was cool. It was not part of a show as it appears they do. Just happened to be in the right place at the right time. The siting's were Lincoln rock, Three sisters, Evans lookout, Govern leap, and Botanic garden. Lunch was a preorder from a short menu when you get on the tour. The food was decent. Did not work out for my wife as they put a dressing on the salad that is not noted in their menu. Was nice that it was a small group of 14. However, there were two vans of 14 going to the same areas. This actually caused our lunch to be later than planned due to a scheduling issue of the two vans by management. There were USB ports on the van for each seat. They offered water for people throughout the tour.
Blue Mountains in the Rain & Fog
Joyce_W, Jan 2024
Our guide, John was wonderful! However, the weather was horrible! Rain & foggy and couldn’t see much of anything! Also, not fond of walking around in the pouring rain! This should have been cancelled and give us our money back! It was not t fair on John to try to make it bearable! Money back!!!!!
Excellent small group tour of the blue mountains.
Linda_K, Dec 2023
Kathy was an outstanding guide. We enjoyed our stops and her commentary concerning our various stops. Enjoyed the small farm we went to and saw numerous animals. I would recommend this tour. The vehicle was comfortable and clean.
Great trip.

Great Way to Spend Our First Day in Australia
Jay_L, Nov 2023
Great experience! Nigel, our Guide, was extremely knowledgeable, informative and friendly! Lunch with delicious! I would definitely do it again. Worth every penny…
Do yourself a favour & participate in this day!
Pauline_W, Oct 2023
Loved that the bus was so comfortable & was a small group tour. Our tour guide Ian was amazing. He provided great information and got the most out of our day for us. I have done a lot of world travel and our day with Ian was certainly up there with the best! We could not have faulted our day in any way. Thankyou ever so much for giving us such an enjoyable day that we will cherish forever.
Excellent Tour and Tour Guide
BarbaraF_S, Oct 2023
Although the weather was less then ideal, we were ble to see and do almost everything on the itinerary Three Sisters was fogged in, but Ian made sure we had lots of other things to see. He was informative and unfailingly patient with our questions. Lunch was really good, and the restaurant had great views. All in all it was an excellent experience.
Ruth_K, Sep 2023
Karen, our driver was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. The whole day was the best from pick up to drop off. Plenty of room to take in the views and take photos with going in the week.
Perfect day of exploring the Blue Mountains and seeing wildlife
Leah_B, Aug 2023
This trip was outstanding! Well worth the money. We got to get up close and personal with the native critters at Calmsley farm, took in absolutely beautiful views at a few overlooks in the blue mountains, enjoyed lunch at a historic hotel and then ended the day with a trip to the Botanical Gardens. The tour guide was excellent and highly knowledgeable on a large variety of topics! The van service was very nice and pickup was on time. The tour goes very quickly, but is great fun. 10/10 stars! I highly recommend!
Good Day Trip
Karen_B, Aug 2023
Nice day outside of Sydney. Some outstanding views. Great lunch. Guide was excellent. Felt a bit hurried at some of the viewing spots.
