"A five star journey hosted by Les who provided a six star experience. The tour was more than expected. Les was the bonus. Fully recommend to all that may hesitate. Just do it."
- Included in price:
- * Entrance fee to the National Park * Complimentary hotel pick up (this is one of the few Blue Mountains tours that will pick you up in Manly) * Clean, modern buses * 40 minute Parramatta River & Sydney harbour cruise on Fantasea's flag ship Catalina. ( see picture ) * Professional and VERY experienced Tour Guides - We only employ the best....And there is a BIG difference between a bus driver and our passionate Tour Guide.
- Able to be purchased/hired:
- Lunch - We don't include lunch....WHY? Experience has shown us that if a set menu is included, half the group will enjoy it, but you may not. And if you don't like the lunch offered, you have no other options....... The town of Leura is full of great little take-away food places ( for the budget minded ), bakeries, great cafes, excellent restaurants, a little supermarket. You'll get to enjoy wandering around this pretty little town and YOU can choose what you have for lunch......Not US. We include the trip up the harbour at the end of the day instead of lunch. Scenic World Entry $39/Adult, $21/Child - payable in cash on the day.
