We had a great day the tour guide Henry was informative. Traffic was a nightmare though and the tour was advertised as blue mountains and Jenolan caves but when we were picked up it was Jenolan caves we were asked if we were going to I wasn't the only one who was confused it would be better to go to Blue mountains separately to really enjoy the experience

My husband and I wanted to do something different for our honeymoon. This trip to the famed Blue Mountains and Jenolan cave along the way is indeed something interesting that caught our eye. Henry, the guide from AAT Kings tour picked us near our hotel early in the morning with a big and comfortable tour coach bus. We reached the beautiful Leura garden village after a 1.5 hour drive from Sydney for a 45 minute break. We had a satisfying breakfast at Loaves & the Dishes which was highly recommended by Henry. Here people can also grab some lunch for later on, as there are some other cafes and a Woolworths. Up in the Blue Mountains the view is breathtaking. Had some photos at the lookout points. The blue haze created are actually from oils that evaporates into the air from the Eucalyptus trees. Henry was such a good driver maneuvering the narrow mountain paths. We then waited by the Blue Lake just beside Jenolan caves entrance hopeful to sight platypus. The 90 min Lucas cave tour was scheduled half an hour later so we have some time to explore the area. We actually had to climb 910 steps in total, through various chambers including a Cathedral chamber which can hold weddings boasting its perfect acoustics. The cave formation and stalactites are indeed spectacular work. Our group were also lucky to be able to feed carrots to a wild wallaby which Henry has named her Matilda! A really awesome and fun day tour which I highly recommend to everyone seeking adventure in nature.

Had a wonderful tour guide named john! He really put all his effort into being accommodating from dealing with my big bags to dropping me off out of his way! Great tour only recommendation would be less time at the first pit stop! Awesome nonetheless :)

The Blue Mountains was a beautiful as I expected it to be but I didn't think we spent nearly enough time there. We stopped in the quaint town of Leura for refreshments but I think that could have either been cut out or shortened because then we were only given 15 minutes at Echo Point Lookout to see the Three Sisters Rock formation (which I was really looking forward to). The Jenolan Caves were cool but again, feel as though our time there could have been shortened. Overall it was a good day (very long) and our driver was very friendly and informative. The drive itself was scenic and it was nice to be able to relax comfortably in the bus. Pack your walking shoes and bring food and drink.

This is a good way to get to the Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves without having to worry about driving yourself. The bus is very modern and comfortable, with plenty of room to ensure you aren't squished for the long drive. We left Sydney at approximately 9.30 which I found quite late as it really limited the amount of time we had to spend at the mountains. The first stop after a 1.5 hour drive was the town Leura for a 45 minute break. Here you can grab some lunch for later on, with some cafes and a Woolworths. I found this stop a bit long as it resulted in us only have 15 minutes to spend at Echo Point (home of the Three Sisters etc). Next stop was Echo Point for a VERY quick chance to enjoy the great views of the Blue Mountains - the views were magical! Back on the bus for a 2 hour drive to Jenolan Caves. Once at Jenolan Caves we had 30 minutes to walk around blue lake before a 90 minute Jenolan Caves tour. The tour guide was great and very informative, however by the end I found the tour very long - unfortunately the caves don't look much different from each other. The group was also quite large resulting in us not all being able to fit on the platforms at times. Back on board the bus, we started the journey back to Sydney arriving back at around 6.30. All in all, it's a good way to get to the Blue Mountains, however i think some improvements need to be made to the itinerary to make this GREAT. Our bus driver was awesome and very entertaining. This is a very long day however, so probably not ideal for young children.

Top tips

"While it's possible to drive to both of these locations, it's a 5+ hour round trip from Sydney on some winding road; tour operators know these roads perfectly allowing you to relax and take in the views. Also, the Jenolan Caves are a constant 15 degrees Celsius all year – perfect for walking even in summer!"
