Our most popular Private Blue Mountains tour is our full day. Our half day tour is a 6 hour day. Driving time is usually about 1:45 minutes one way so this tour is just for the highlights. Our Full day tour allows for flexible time and a range of activities and sights to fill your day.

The Blue Mountains Private Tour – Tailored for You

We’ll fill the day with your choice of activities. 

You might spot wild kangaroos at Glenbrook National Park or get up close and personal with the koalas at Featherdale Wildlife Park.

You can take in the ancient landscape of the Jamison Valley from Lincoln’s Rock at Kings Tableland and visit the magnificent Three Sisters.

Bushwalk at Wentworth Falls or visit Blackheath for a look at the Grose Valley.

We’ll stop at lookouts along Cliff Drive. And have the option of checking out views of the valley from the glass-floored Skyway cable car or ride the world’s steepest railway at Scenic World.

Leura, Katoomba, and Blackheath offer charming cafes, restaurants, and bakeries – we’ll stop and explore some of these villages. You can have bite to eat, take a stroll, or look for perfect gifts in the high street shops. Please enquire in about fine dining options.

Afternoon Sightseeing, The Grose Valley, Blackheath or Katoomba,

After lunch there’s time for more sightseeing. If we’re in Blackheath a visit to one or more of the lookouts over the Grose Valley are in order: Pulpit Rock, Anvil Rock, or Govetts Leap. In Katoomba we can follow the Cliff Drive, pulling in for views over the Jamison Valley. If you want to visit Scenic World, this is time. Our final stop is always Echo Point in Katoomba and the postcard view of Three Sisters in the afternoon light.

Sydney Return -Via Glenbrook National Park, the Olympic Park ferry or direct.

If we haven’t stopped at Glenbrook National Park or Featherdale Wildlife Park on our outward journey, we might stop on the way home. At Glenbrook we might spot wild kangaroos while at Featherdale you can get up close and personal with all manner of Australian animals and birds.
If you’d like something different for your return to the city – we can drive through Sydney Olympic Park to the wharf from where you can catch a ferry to the City. This commuter ferry cruises down the Parramatta River through suburban Sydney. It takes about an hour to reach either Barangaroo or Circular Quay.
