Great day trip out of the city. Featherdale was a fun stop.. loved interacting with the animals. The park wasn’t crowded so 1.5 hours there felt adequate. Then it was on Leura..lots of great options for lunch and then scenic world. Could’ve spent a little more time there but had to factor in the wait for the rides (which wasn’t long but still a factor in determining how much actual time you had to explore the park) Barry was a very informative guide and driver giving us lots of fun info about the history of Australia as well every day Aussie life. Highly recommend!

We had a very good day. We enjoyed the whole trip, especially wildlife park and Scenic World. Our Tour guide Barry was awesome, he gave us a lots of info about Sydney and whole trip and cracked a lot of jokes too, which kept the trip funny and pleasant all the way. I would recommend this trip to all my friends and everyone who I meet. Thanks for a lovely Experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire excursion. I love animals and personally would have liked to have been able to spend a little more time at the wildlife park. However, this was my first time visiting Australia and so I appreciate the day being packed with activities and things to see.

Absolutely the best tour we have been on. Tom was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Thank you Tom for a great day!! :)

Great trip , well worth doing , highly recommend .
