Fantastic day out to The Blue Mountains and Wldlife tour. We also choosen the option of Railway, Skyrail and Cable Car, this is a must as the views are spectacular. The Wildlife zoo is great, you get to see all the animals they have there. I would recommend and go back there again.

First, our coach driver, Peter, was an AMAZING guide. He did a great job explaining the sites we were seeing on our coach drive from Sydney to the Blue Mountains (roughly a 2 hour drive each way), and did it with humor and fun. Peter was very accommodating and made sure everyone was aware of when we would leave each location, and where he would pick us up if he needed to move. He bought cookies and gummy snakes to give out as a snack after our lunch break, and even gave each of the passengers a mini-Koala as a keepsake after our visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Lastly, Peter even dropped my daughter and I off at a public bus stop since it was closer to our hotel than returning us to the Holiday Inn where we originally started the tour. Overall, it was an enjoyable day in the Blue Mountains with amazing sites to see (The Three Sisters, Scenic World, the city of Leura), and a wonderful tour guide in Peter that made the day even better. I would definitely recommend the Blue Mountains day tour with AAT Kings.

This tour was amazing! I was traveling solo so I went by myself and loved every minute. Our guide, Henry, was the nicest and most knowledgeable guy. He really made the tour worth every penny. The mountains were absolutely STUNNING. Pictures don’t do them justice. At Scenic World (second stop on the tour), I opted not to pay the additional fee for the rides and just walked some of the trails instead. I’m really glad I did that. We then had lunch in a cute little town just a short drive from Scenic World. (It’s not necessary to include lunch when you book the tour as there are plenty of places to choose from.) After lunch, we went to Featherdale Wildlife Sanctuary, where we saw tons of indigenous animals and got to feed kangaroos and wallabies! At Featherdale, there was an option to get your picture taken with a koala for $20 AUD. Heads up though: Henry told us that the state of New South Wales does not allow people to actually hold koalas (i.e., your picture will just be you standing next to one). You can hold koalas in Queensland, though, so if you’re planning to visit some place up north I’d suggest getting your picture there. The day ended with an optional river cruise back to Sydney (about $16 AUD). It was really nice to get off the bus and see the city from a different perspective. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Sydney for the very first time. You’ll be in good hands, as the staff at AATKings works very hard and cares deeply about making sure their customers have a great time. And if anyone from AATKings reads this... Henry deserves a raise. :)

Great tour! Unfortunately, fog in the mountains obscured most views. Walked the paths on valley floor which were great. Wildlife park and tour narratives were excellent.

This was a great tour. The scenery was awesome looking over the Blue Mountains. The trams and the cable car felt safe as we were co concerned. Our bus driver was wonderful as he was very informative about the city, culture and venues. The lunch was also a good value. We would recommend this tour to everyone.

We had a great time on this tour! I really wish I could remember the bus driver's name - he was wonderful. Knew so much history of the area. We liked that there were multiple stops, and we got see a variety of things.

Four of us went on the tour, we were picked up on time from a nearby hotel, the guide and the driver were a comedy double act which made for an entertaining day. The trip was well planned and professionally run and was excellent value. The bus was very comfortable, the lunch was good and well organised. The venues were stunning. Once again viator has exceeded our expectations .

We had a wonderful day. Our driver, Tom, was excellent! He had a great sense of humour and was a wealth of knowledge. We learned so much about Sydney, the Blue Mountains area and everything in between. The Blue Mountains are beautiful! Thanks for a great day.

Very cool tour.

A really memorable day out and although I worried they were trying to pack too much into the day you needed to do something else as well as the blue mountains to make it a full day. We took children aged 8 and 4 and we all loved this trip.
