    So Much Fun!
    Tour was so much fun. We've taken many day tours and some extended ones, and can honestly say that Rod, our tour guide, was the best we've ever had. He was really fun and very engaging. He kept us smiling and laughing the whole day, no one wanted to leave.

    Must-do tour while in Sydney
    Very informative. Our 2 tour guides(Leonard and Rob) were very knowledgeable. Leonard gave us a great take on Sydney’s history with some humorous remarks which made the whole trip light and fun.The views at the lookouts and the rainforest were breathtaking. And of course we finished off with the Sydney zoo which had Australia’s most iconic animals. Amazing day with great temperature. And I finally got to try a kangaroo burger and found my pavlova. Definitely recommend.

    Skip the zoo
    Great tour and informative guides. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the zoo was a bit sad.I would have preferred to spend more time in the Blue Mountain area and skip the sad little zoo altogether. The Koalas were adorable but the zoo is old.

    Fantastic day trip! It’s a very organized and fun way to explore the mountains and Sydney in a stress free way.
    This is such a great way to explore the Blue Mountains in a day, see wildlife, and learn a lot about the area. Rob was so kind and knowledgeable and truly made it a wonderful experience. Highly recommend going!

Really enjoyed this trip, and our host 'Scotty' made it very personal and interesting. Pick-up was on time, and the journey to the Blue Mountains full of facts, information, and stories from Scotty. The scenery was spectacular, and the cable cars and cliff railway were something different. The fact that these were built upon existing artefacts from the mining heritage of the area rather than just a touristic construct added legitimacy and additional interest for me. Lunch stop at a quaint Blue Mountains town offered many options for a very reasonable meal, we used the Chinese $14 lunch special, really nice. An hour at the Zoo was pleasant, although I thought it lacked in information. My only minor quibble being the 21 seater bus being a little cramped, but there were plenty of leng stretching opportunities. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Recently joined the Diamond Tours Blue Mountain/Three Sisters/Scenic World with its "Dinosaur theme"/Sydney Zoo/Sydney Harbour ferry small group day-tour and I had a very enjoyable time. The Blue mountains region offered spectacular natural scenery, lots of photo opportunities of the Three Sisters geologic features, Scenic World's steepest railcar ride was fun, we enjoyed time at the zoo closeup with koalas and kangaroos, and our knowledgeable tour guide/driver named Helder, worked hard to provide continuous historical, cultural, touristic and interesting facts about Sydney and Australia, with his unique sense of humor, almost comedic style. Well done, Helder! For those seeking a fun, actionpacked, full-day tour outside Sydney, I highly recommend this tour.

Had the best day in the Blue Mountains with our tour guide Sean! He was very friendly and funny, and had a lot of knowledge of the area. Doing the combination of the mountains first and then the zoo, we were able to beat a lot of the crowds and even had some parts of the mountain entirely to ourselves. It didn’t feel rushed even though we were on a schedule, with in my opinion plenty of time for the different places. The other travelers were on time back to the minibus all throughout the day so we were able to enjoy the different stops with the maximum amount of exploring. The zoo was also a very nice experience, focusing on the Australian area. The day ended with a beautiful ferry ride down the Parramatta river. It was mid July so bring warm clothes, especially in the morning before the temperature rises a bit.

This trip is great if you have one day to explore the area, want to get a nice overview of the blue mountains and the nicest lookout points, and enjoy having somebody telling you about the local area, the mountains, and to show you the good places. Also a great trip for solo travelers! Do you want to know why it’s really called the Blue Mountains? This trip is for you. If you want to hit a trail on your own and walk for a day, then maybe go by yourself. I do recommend this one though.

Thank you so much to Sean and Diamond Tours for a very nice day!

Had the pleasure to experience a trip to the Blue Mountains with the expert guidance of Scotty. Beautiful scenery and a perfect itinerary was enhanced to the next level by Scotty’s perfect blend of knowledge, expertise, whit and humour.

A fantastic day out, topped off with a final stop to mingle with the kangaroos and koalas.

Rob the driver and owner of the tour company did a great job escorting our 15 person group. We visited Echo Point, Cahill Lookout (on cliff drive) and the rainforest before the crowds arrived - fantastic. Then went to Leura for a great lunch and some shopping. Then went to Sydney zoo for about 90 minutes and finished up with a ferry ride from the Olympic Park to Circular Quay. Rob was a wealth of information. The cost included everything except lunch. Fantastic time.

First, our guide Scotty made our entire trip fun and engaging throughout, hard to do for an 8 to 10 hour day of driving and site seeing. We had a great time as we explored the Blue Mountains. Scenic World provided some adventures as we did the three different experiences over, down, and back up through the mountains and jungle too. As we left the Blue Mountains we stopped in a small town for lunch before making our way to the Sydney Zoo to see koalas and other animals from around Australia and the world. We finished with a ferry ride from Olympic Park under the Harbor Bridge to Circular Quay at the Sydney Opera House. It was a great and very well planned day, we really enjoyed our time, feel that we saw a lot, and it was great to meet Scotty too.

Scotty was fun. We were a part of 20 people tour from Sydney to Blue Mountains, three very special almost vertical rides, Sydney Zoo and a return via ferry.

Scotty Edward was a delight. Funny, informative and kept our interest throughout the whole day.

Scotty was an amazing guide...we learned so much about the history, culture and fauna and flora of the Blue Mountains region and Sydney as well.
Scotty picked us up the hotel we chose right on time (although we forgot to set our clocks ahead..so we were an hour early). He makes a point of finding out our names and where we all were from...and remembered who was who. He has a great sense of humor and told some really silly jokes in between a narration of what we were looking at and what to expect. We luckily had great weather and clear views. I found the tour quite strenuous with many stair steps...I have a bum knee, but managed ok just slower than most tour members. Run by a small family company not a corporate company. Highly recommended

Scotty picked us up from our hotel bang on time. His local knowledge, his humour and his professionalism was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and Scotty worked hard to give us the best possible experience.

He took us to several lookout points with spectacular views, we had a brilliant, relaxed lunch before riding the steepest train track in the world, a stunning gondola ride, a visit to Sydney Zoo and a boat trip down the Parramatta River which took us under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and alongside the Opera House.

A great day out, great value for money, plenty to see and do. Thanks again Scotty !

So grateful to have Scotty as our tour guide for our Blue Mountain Tour in Sydney on March 6, 2023. He was an an amazing wealth of information. His narrative was both interesting, educational and humorous and his rendition of Waltzing Matilda was priceless!
The tour thru the Blue Mountains and Rain Forest were incredible! Scenic World Rides had amazing views and were so much fun. Then, to top it off, the Sydney Zoo - I got to have a photo with a koala! Wow! It was such a fun filled day - I believe I took over 200 pictures!
I wish we could have done more excursions with Scotty as our guide. This was hands down our favorite experience in Sydney!
Thanks so very much for making our visit so wonderful!
