We booked a 1 day Grand Tour with this tour company, which turned out to be very delightful! The pickup was scheduled at 7.05am but we were only picked up at around 7.20pm due to bad traffic conditions. Nevertheless, as the group was small, we managed to pick up everyone else fairly quickly and leave Sydney by 8 am.
We started off the day at Featherdale Wildlife Park (admission included) where we got to interact with lots of animals. We arrived earlier than the park's official opening hours, which was great as it meant fewer people around! Since we had made up quite a bit of time, we next headed to Lincoln's Rock, which is accessible only to small tour buses, for some amazing views of the Blue Mountains.
We then had 1 hour free-and-easy for lunch in Leura. Loved the idea of a free-and-easy lunch as we were able to search for food that we wanted to try, rather than be forced into a certain restaurant. After lunch, we headed to Echo Point and Scenic World (admission included) for more views of the Blue Mountains. Finally, we ended the day with a cruise down the Parramatta River back to Circular Quay. There was also an option to alight a Darling Harbour instead.
Shoutout to our driver/guide, Max, who was extremely witty and informative throughout the tour. It must not be easy being concurrently both the driver and guide, but he did it fantastically well. The bus was also clean and comfortable.
