Overview
Experience the spectacular World Heritage listed Blue Mountains on an all inclusive tour from Sydney. Visit the famous Three Sisters at Echo Point for incredible views over the Jamison Valley and jump on as many rides as you like at Scenic World with your Unlimited Discovery Pass. You could ride the world’s steepest railway to the rainforest floor and take a short guided walk or travel across the valley in the famous cableway gondola. Enjoy a delicious lunch at an award-winning restaurant in Leura and meet koalas and kangaroos and other exotic animals at Sydney Zoo, leaders in animal conservation. Top of the day with a scenic river cruise that will take you under Sydney Harbour Bridge to Circular Quay, or if you prefer you can disembark at Darling Harbour.

Highlights
  • Pack more into one day on an activity-filled trip to the Blue Mountains 
  • Stop at more sights and lookouts by traveling by bus rather than by train
  • Return to Sydney by boat for a different—and memorable—view of the harbor
  • Hassle-free: all transportation, entrance fees, and lunch are included 
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.

AAT Kings pulled together a great excursion. The wildlife experience was nice, the lunch was excellent, the blue mountains were exquisite, and the return boat ride was the perfect ending to the day. Our tour guide was well informed and interesting.

Booking was quite straight forward through hotel concierge within less than 24 hours notice. However, as I am a first time visitor amd since this is mainly a sight seeing tour, I would have expected the company and reservation desk to mention the possibility of low visibility

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

Dear 399joyw, Thank you for your review. It's great to hear you enjoyed the Blue Mountains tour along with our informative commentary! We regret to hear that the bushfires had some impact on your experience. The wind direction is what controls the views and levels of smoke around the areas we visit, which is changing on a regular basis, hence unfortunately giving notice ahead of time is not always possible. We consider the welfare and safety of our guests as the utmost priority and are continuing to monitor the local bushfires and make decisions with our itinerary accordingly to ensure our guests a positive and safe experience. Thank you for travelling with us and we hope we can welcome you again next time. Kind Regards, The Team at AAT Kings
