What to Expect
Your day trip to the Blue Mountains begins with convenient pickup from your Sydney hotel. The first stop is Sydney Zoo, home to native Australian species such as koalas and kangaroos. Spend some time getting to know the animals.  Then head to Scenic World Blue Mountains, where you can experience rides on the railway, skyway, and cable car—all of which provide different perspectives of Mt. Solitary, Katoomba Falls, and Jamison Valley. Following your visit to Scenic World, stop at a local restaurant, where you enjoy a delicious lunch. Finally, board a sightseeing cruise along the Parramatta River that returns you to Sydney in style. Pass iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, and conclude your tour at Darling Harbour or Circular Quay.

Overall the tour was great and very informative. The tour guides kept things moving along and certainly kept us laughing. The only negative I have is due to the bush fires the Blue Mountains were limited. While this was out of their control I felt like I should have been

We booked our trip via Viator after my wife and I decided to visit Blue Mountains during our stay in Sydney. The tour bus picked us up at the Shangri-La right on time and we were greeted by Steve who happens to be both the driver and the Tour Guide. This was an all inclusive

We were picked up by our tour guide, Smokey (not a great omen when there are fires in the area). Smokey was very talkative and I enjoyed that about him. Other guests were not as thrilled with that, but he did give us the option of hearing from him or asking him to stop and

Dear John K, Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your Blue Mountains Day Trip along with Smokey. We do appreciate your feedback on the weather, this assists us in improving our products and services for next time. Due to the unpredictable nature of a bushfire, conditions are frequently changing and hence it is not always possible to give notice in advance. The smoke and views are also impacted by wind direction which can change at any given minute, this is also beyond our control. Safety is our top priority and we are frequently monitoring the bushfires with Rural Fire Services to ensure this is not compromised. We thank you for travelling with us and hope to welcome you on board again next trip. Kind Regards, The Team at AAT Kings
