The Real Blue Mountains Tour
Pick Up: 7:30 am
Duration: 11 Hours
Cost: $900 AUD for 1-3 guests (If 4-10 people register for the tour, the cost will be $210 AUD per person.)
The Blue Mountains is a World Heritage listed national park, a two hour drive from Sydney. The area is named for the blue haze let off from its dense cover of eucalyptus trees. We stop at a magical lookout where you will get your first glimpse of the rock formations and flora that form the Blue Mountains region.
Then it’s off to Scenic World at Katoomba where we experience some of the more popular Blue Mountains attractions. We offer you a complete experience at Scenic World which entails going across the valley on the Scenic Skyway and then descending into the temperate rainforest on the Scenic Cableway. We do a short boardwalk through the rainforest area and then travel back up to the top via the steepest incline in the world…the Scenic Railway. The rides are short and a Must Do in the Blue Mountains, hence the pass is fully included in the tour price.
The exploration continues by taking in another lovely lookout and perhaps a small walk to discover the flora of the area.
Your lunch stop (at own expense) will be in the boutique village of Leura where there are some lovely cafes and places to stop for scones and jam if you prefer. Leura also has quaint shopping for those who want to pick up something special.
Then we leave the Blue Mountains and head to Featherdale Wildlife Park. This is a great chance to get up close and personal with our weird and wonderful Aussie animals like koalas, kangaroos and wallabies. Most of the animals here wander around freely and you can feed the kangaroos and have a photo taken with a cuddly koala.
After our action packed day we leave Featherdale and drive back to Sydney Olympic Park, the main location of the amazing Olympic Games in 2000. From here you will board a ferry for a leisurely cruise back to Sydney. What a wonderful relaxing way to end your day.
You will arrive at Darling Harbour at approximately 6.30pm and Circular Quay at approximately 6.45 pm.
The Real Sydney Tour
Pick Up: 8:30 am
Duration: 4 Hours
Cost: $600 AUD for 1-3 guests (If 4-10 people register for the tour, the cost will be $110 AUD per person.)
This is our signature tour and it’s a great way to explore Sydney. You will learn about the local history and folklore, but just enough to be entertaining, never boring. You will get glimpses of Sydney only locals know about without cramming in too many things. We want you to experience the Sydney we love…
Our journey usually begins with a drive down Macquarie Street to get a sense of how the history of Sydney has changed since its days of early settlement. We enter the Royal Botanic Gardens precinct where we take a short stroll to see some lovely views. From here you can capture the perfect photo of the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Then we stroll down to Mrs Macquarie’s Chair for a bit of history right on our harbour foreshore.
We will drive through lively Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross before we leisurely make our way through the beautiful Eastern suburbs of Sydney. You will see how each suburb is a small village in its own right as we introduce you to Double Bay, Rose Bay, Parsley Bay or Nielson Park, Vaucluse and Watsons Bay. We explore an area called the Gap and show you the brilliant cliffs and waters of the Pacific Ocean .Our harbour and coastal exploration gives you a real insight into life in Sydney. Of course we stop at Iconic Bondi Beach before returning you home via a drive through the historic Rocks area.
The Real North Shore Tour
Pick Up: 8:30 am
Duration: 4 Hours
Cost: $500 AUD for 1-3 guests (If 4-10 people register for the tour, the cost will be $100 AUD per person.)
We cross the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge on our way to the beautiful North Shore. First stop is Milsons Point, which offers arguably the best vantage point in Sydney for spectacular views of the famous harbour and city skyline.
Travel through the exclusive and trendy suburbs of Neutral Bay and Mosman before making our way to the tranquil scenery of Balmoral Beach.
Then we wind our way through the suburbs to a wonderful lookout at Georges Head. This area was a Harbour Fortification until 1979 when it became part of our extensive Sydney Harbour National Park. You will find in Sydney it’s all about the views. The view from here is marvellous.
From here we head further north over the Spit Bridge, taking in the areas of Middle Harbour and Seaforth before we arrive at Manly Beach. We will have time to appreciate this beautiful beach that has contributed to Manly’s reputation as a popular waterfront suburb. You will have time to walk the Corso, a pedestrian mall which runs between the harbour and the ocean. You can also stop for a snack at one of many quaint beachfront cafes.
No visit to the North is complete without a visit to North Head, which used to house Sydney Quarantine station. Here you will appreciate the size of Sydney Harbour and the vastness of the Pacific Ocean.
Sadly it’s time to head back to the city. Alternatively you can choose to take the famous Manly ferry back to Circular Quay (ferry ticket not included).
