Our trip to the Blue Mountains was one of the highlights of our three and half week holiday in Australia and New Zealand. We enjoyed excellent weather and wonderful views. The hoho bus was an excellent way to get around and linked the most important viewing points and walks. Drivers very friendly and the first we met took great care to speak a few words to travellers in their own language and on our bus they included those from Germany, Holland and Taiwan ! Scenic World had excellent adventure rides which gave spectacular views. We also visited the toy museum which was one of the stops on the hoho bus and this was very interesting and took me back to my childhood.
Had awful weather when I went, rain mist and fog so can’t really give a true review as unable to see all the beautiful scenery. However, there was still a certain beauty walking through some of the bush walks in the rain forest. Had a really helpful driver on one of the Hop on, Hop Off buses who went out of his way to tell me things and even stopped to show me a LyreBird.
The smoky conditions in the Blue Mountains meant the number of stops had to be curtailed and therefore full use of the ticket was limited. Scenic World was open though and time there was well spent. Credit to the bus company for offering food/ drink voucher without charge as compensation for disruption caused through no fault of their own.
This bus was convenient to get around various locations at the Blue Mountains, and the drivers were extremely helpful. There could have been better signs at some of the stops directing where to go for the sights (e.g., Lyrebird Dell). It would also be helpful if the bus ran later into the evening.
Unfortunately, we were rushed as we arrived late and could only catch a few things before the buses stopped running. Scenic World Rides were just okay wrt scenery. The bus driver were very informative and friendly.
