What people are saying about Katoomba
With all due respect to the TOTALLY disabled passenger & heroic husband & prevailing laws for disabilities accommodation laws, I make this suggestion. This person who arrived in a wheelchair could not stand, or even hold her head erect without assistance. Hence she had to be physically carried from the wheel chair into her seat by her husband, and more disturbingly, by our driver, who was totally unprepared for her and his physical participation. (He was fabulous as a guide, but 75 yr old) The bus, as well as not having a lift for a wheel chair, or a space to accommodate & secure a w/c, did not even have a space to store an unoccupied w/c except at the back tenuously blocking the aisle fort the last row of clients. So while the husband claims he reportedly mentioned the potential problems to you, it doesn’t appear any attempt at accommodation happend. While he & your driver were heros in all this, to the rest of us, while accepting, had our experience significantly diminished.
Excellent adventure! Our guide, Robert, was awesome in sharing facts, history, and Australian tidbits. From the beautiful blue Mountains and thrilling experiences at scenic world, to off road overlooks, a tasty lunch at local pub, hand feeding kangaroos (so cool), to the final ferry ride into circular quay, this was fantastic! I’m so happy we found and booked this excursion. We never would’ve been able to do all of this on our own. Plus, Robert’s expertise and friendly interaction made this a definite must-do!! We made such amazing memories and have great pictures to go along with them. If you are reading this review, stop and book this! You won’t regret it :)
The views and places are totally amazing and must see. My best-visited place around Sydney. However, I didn't like the tour guide that much, he was a bit rude, old fashioned and too much talking about his personal life instead of Australia and Blue Mountains. Other than that it's a really awesome experience! I believe that All Inclusive is not necessary, so you can find other and cheaper option for even better quality :)
We had Rod as our guide. He was knowledgeable but he made some jokes about people’s country of origin. While good at taking us to various locations, we found that we were a bit rushed in the Blue Mountains and in Scenic World. Overall great experience in seeing the Blue Mountains as that was once in a lifetime.
This tour was put together well, with adequate time in all of the tour locations. We had a great group of people who all got on well together, our tour guide and driver Lloyd, had great knowledge and a good repotoire of ‘old & stale’ jokes, which helped to gel the group. A great day was had by everybody.
