Overall rating

Our guide Tom was great. He gave us very entertaining commentary both on the blue mountain region but also in Sydney as we were driving through. Our trip included a ferry back to Sydney. Since ferries were free at that time we were reimbursed the fare which they were under no obligation to do. I highly recommend FJ tours. The blue mountains and 3 sisters were beautiful. The rides at scenic world were a bit lame but can’t be helped. You are already there so may as well take them

Great selection of wineries - 3 different wineries had different specialties and experience (there was 1 very young i.e. 8-year old estate), distillery was very average and lunch was well catered at a brewery. Driver was fantastic - personality + driving responsibly (i.e. not a rash bus driver)

Sensational. Great company to deal with, all staff very helpful and courteous. And what a view, something not to be missed. Can't wait to be back in Sydney to do it again.

A journey that is really impressive and worthwhile. A good guide, Jett. And good program items planned in sufficient time

It was a great trip with every stop timed seamlessly. I enjoyed every activity. I met some new friends.
