From Sydney: Blue Mountains Nature and Wildlife Tour
- Pickup available
- Duration: 11 hours
Started off with a wonderful stop at the wildlife sanctuary where we cold get close to several animals including kangaroos (who were rather affectionate :)) and had a photo opportunity with a koala. In the blue mountains I opted to skip the rides as I prefer doing the less touristy things. Instead I went for a good bush walk. Leura was also a pleasant little town for lunch. The boat ride back was initially a little dragging since it was pitch dark however amazing scenery as we got into circular quay. Steve, our guide did a fantastic job...not just as a guide...but also as an entertainer ;).
In general, we are satisfied, we were only unlucky with the wheather. The scenic …. (cablecar …) did feel a bit like a tourist trap though, and, was the least portion of the one-day trip. We were very satisfied with the guide, despite of the wheather, he did try to make the best of the day.
It was a fantastic day out with very experienced tour guide, Scotty, who is knowledgeable not just about the course, but also about the biography and aboriginal culture. We could ask anything that's caught by our eyes and learned a lot about it.
I really enjoyed the tour: the scenery was beautiful, the tour showed different aspects of Australia and thanks to our amazing guide (was it Steve?) we really got a better understanding of Australia.
This tour is excellent value for money. Steve our driver and guide for the day was very friendly humorous and knowledgeable guy, keeping us all entertained throughout the day. Definitely go.
