Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This tour is a pleasant day trip outside Sydney to see the Blue Mountains, Katoomba Falls, and Three Sisters. Then, we fed kangaroos and wallabies at the Sydney Zoo and wrapped up the day with a ferry through the Sydney Harbor. The weather was surprisingly cooperative with our schedule despite the forecast of thunderstorms. What a wonderful day with our guide Bob! Highly recommend Anderson's Tours.

    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.

    I spent my first full day in Australia with Blue Mountain Tours and it was the best decision I made, besides cuddling a koala. Hands down, good information from our driver/guide, great conversation with others from around the globe and beautiful scenery and amazing Aussie animals. The ride was comfortable and the hospitality so friendly. Thanks BMT!

    Except for the drizzle and rain, which was no fault for the tour guide, it was superb. Be forewarned, it is NOT A MODERATE HIKE! It is extremely strenuous but well worth it!

    Our tour guide Tom was a wealth of information and has a unique ability to call birds to him…well trained cockatoos!

    Greg was an amazing guide. Had lots of laughs and was overall a great experience especially for the first time in the area. The tour had a great range of wine and distilleries and a good lunch location.

    This was amazing! I went with my mother, we wanted a tour where you actually got to see the animals up close and not in captivity. We got that and more. Not only did we see vombats and kangaroos up close, we got a great guided tour through national parks, a great dinner and wonderful views. Beautiful day, I can not recommend this trip enough. And if you like wildlife, a great addition to this tour was the Flying foxes bat tour.

    Thank you Dave! It was the best!

    The Taronga Zoo is a great place to explore and see all the animals while in the Sydney area. If you go with children, you could easily spend a full day there. They also have a hotel at the zoo, in case you wanted to do night walks to see the nocturnal animals in their natural habitat. That would be very cool to do also! I would definitely recommend this trip, but depending upon your available time, you may want to take a regular taxi ferry, as they run more frequently than the Captain Cook Cruises.

    Went for the blue mountain day tour. It was one of the best guided tours I've been on in any countries - and I've been on many! Few things I really appreciated:
    - Dan really knows where to take you and when. Although there are many tour groups for Blue mountains, our group avoided other groups most of the time. This helps to really enjoy the beauty of the nature so much better.
    - He knows about the mountain and the park very well. You can tell how passionate he is about preserving the nature, he knows a lot about the trees, birds, flowers etc. He will teach you a lot about it throughout the day.
    -He is a great photographer, and he will take amazing pictures of you/your family/your couple throughout the day if this is something you like. (He wont bother you if you don't want pictures). He will send you an edited version by the day after. I like all of the pictures that he took! Better than what I took hands down.
    -Some guided tours try to sell something to you, either from their own business or from a partenreing business. There is nothing like that in this tour. Even for lunch, he gives you recommendations of nice places to visit, and he lets you pick. The tour really is all about having a great day , seeing the nature and beautiful scenery.

    Few questions I had before the tour : Blue mountain tour is not very demanding in terms of hiking. You would walk about 10000 steps at the end of the day, but wear good shoes(any type of runners would be fine). The group is about 7-8 people. You do not have to purchase separate national park entrance fee, it's all included.

    All in all, very happy that I got to see blue mountains, and also happy that I chose this tour specifically for it. Strongly recommended.

    Our host Korhan created a beautifully orchestrated day that allowed us to see so many areas that we would not have been able to experience on our own or with other tours. He allowed us to set the pace that worked for us which made this day spectacular. He picked us up at our hotel, arrived early and greeted us like longtime friends. Was able to provide Indepth historical information during the entire day. He also acted as our personal photographer with wonderful pictures of all areas visited. My wife and my self would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great all-around historical day trip.

    Great day with Jelo of Dingo tours who provided great insight to the various points of interest at each stopping point and as a small tour you get to places that the big buses cant get to. I highly recommend this tour

    It was a great experience to appreciate Australian nature. Tour guide, Derek, gave us brilliant explanation about the local flora and fauna. His tour was so organized and well-planned that we could feed ourselves on proper time at Glenbrook and enjoy the sunset at Lincoln's Rock. The view was amazing and breathtaking.
    Also, we could meet groups of wild kangaroos on our way to destination.
    Bush-walking wasn't that much tough and I could see several cockatoos at the mountain. Almost every famous spot of Blue mountains (Echo Point Lookout, Three sisters, Wentworth Falls) was included in this tour. -From Korea

    We really enjoyed this all day tour! Aimonn from AEA Tours was our tour guide and he did an excellent job of providing very interesting commentary and information throughout the day.
    We really enjoyed the Calmsley Hill City Farm and all the other beautiful sights this tour had to offer, we were also blessed with really great weather during the entire day so that definitely made the trip even more memorable.
    We decided not to purchase the lunch that was extra with the package so we had lunch at the deli inside the Hydro Majestic Hotel and it was really tasty.
    I would highly recommend this adventure if you are visiting Sydney!
