Tour started with 7:15 pickup. Weather had been poor the day before but began to clear as we made our way out of Sydney in a small bus. About 20 people overall. Tash was our driver/guide and provided lots of interesting information as we journeyed out to the Blue Mountains. There were some tremendous scenery, though some low cloud lingered in the morning, impairing our views. Lunch was great, with an opportunity to check out the town. Featherdale animal park was great for photos of the unique number of animals native only to Australia. Took a boat back from site of Sydney Olympics, to Circular Quay. Was a great day.

The weather was perfect which really helped with the views and as for the rest of the day.....that was perfect too. So much packed into one day. Coach ride, then the rides at Scenic World, lunch, a trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park, other stops for fantastic photo opportunities and finally a trip along the Paramatta River, sailing into the harbour and passing under Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Coathanger. All with a very knowledgeable guide. A highly recommended tour.

We had a wonderful day trip with Anderson Tours. Our tour guide Tash was just brilliant. Extremely friendly, chatty and knowledgeable. She took us to amazing look out points away from the crowds. We got to see and do so many things during the day, yet never felt rushed at all. Would highly recommend this trip. Brilliant time from start to finish.

This was a wonderful tour in spite of the rainy misty weather we had throughout. Our tour guide Bob gave us numerous insights into history and legends and continued throughout to look for breaks in the weather to enhance our experience. Walking in the rain on the valley floor and then later down the path to see one of the three sisters and part of the second was memorable. The ride through the Olympic Park and the ferry back to Sydney were great. This tour does it all.

We had an excellent day visiting the Blue Mountains. We went on many tours during our 18 days in Australia and this tour stands out as one of the best. I was not expecting this kind of mountain experience so close to Sydney. Although the weather started out a little dull an grey, it turned out to be great. The scenery is fantastic and the guide was as well. Would recommend.

Kunal, our guide was awesome. The tour was well organized, incredibly informative and fun. This tour is a definite must while in Sydney. The lunch was delicious and filling. We had plenty of time at each stop and got to ride multiple cable cars, walk through the rainforest, feed baby kangeroos, and end the day with a ferry ride back into downtown Sydney.

We had a very enjoyable day with Robert, our informative, friendly, and funny guide. We spent the morning admiring the beautiful Blue Mountains. Our time viewing the koalas and other native Australian animals at Featherdale Wildlife Park was fun. Feeding the kangaroos and wallabies was priceless. Our boat ride back to Sydney Harbour was relaxing and the views were beautiful. Very good value for the money.

Our guide, Kat, brought this entire experience to life. She went above and beyond expectations. Her depth of knowledge and grasp of history provided dimensions rarely experienced in such an outing.

Expectation of questionable weather but it changes by the minute in valley. Fog moves in and moves out. But sun burned fog off in afternoon and driver took us back to get a second chance at viewing beautiful valley.

Steve was an awesome tour guide. He has lived his entire life in the Blue Mountains, and his experience shows. I was worried that the tram and train rides would be hokey, but they were great. We were fortunate to miss any significant bush fires, and the views and weather were magnificent. The wildlife preserve was only so-so, but the ferry ride back to Sydney was a wonderful end to a great day.

Scottie was a great tour guide, very colorful, knowledgeable, and enjoyable. It was great to go to the Blue Mountains first and Featherdale second. We were almost alone at the Blue Mountain Stops. At Featherdale, Scottie told us that the kangaroos are the front would be full from the earlier visitors and he took use to the back area. We didn't have enough food to feed them all.

Great tour. Bob was a super knowledgeable local. He showed us some hidden view spots and organized the day to see sights with the fewest crowds.

Pick up really prompt. Really informative and helpful guide Kunal. Sadly weather not good so views not as hoped still taken to some great spots and waterfalls amazing. Trip to Featherdale Wildlife park was amazing. A value for money tour.

Book with confidence. Despite the massive firestorms in Australia, this tour to the Blue Mountains is currently minimally affected. Scenic World and the lookout spots are quite clear. Our guide John was full of details that helped give us perspective and understanding. Lunch was better than expected. The animal park was a bit disappointing as we do not want to see caged animals. We did not have an unduly long wait for the ferry st the end. Overall, this was a very good day trip outside of Sydney.

Our guide Ian was fabulous. Went beyond the call of duty. It rained in the morning and her arranged the day so we would see everything.
