question for local tour, which is the best?

hello everyone, I have this question I want to take the local tour to blue mountains, hunter valley, jenolan caves, etc. Can you recommend a good local tour that can include jenolan, blue mt and koala on a 1 day itinerary? Bec with grayline they separated this.
thanks in advance!

you may want to check out greatsights.com.au - I picked up their brochure but did not book one with them. In Sydney - we took a tour with APT tours -- a trip south along the coastline and enjoyed it. It was called Jervis Bay Dolphins and include a variety of activities -- no Koalas however.

G'day valen
"blue mountains, hunter valley, jenolan caves, etc."
I think you are trying to fit too much into one day. That is most likely why Grayline don't do that.
Take your time and enjoy,
Mike

Hi rheamarie: thanks for replying. I am planning to go to Tangaloma Wild life resort to see the dolphins.

Hi OzMike: thanks for replying. Sorry I guess my question was not clear what I meant was 1 day blue mt, 1 day jenolan, 1 day hunter valley. I want to have a concentration of the place per day.

valen --

For Hunter Valley I recommend www.redcarpettours.com.au

I had a good experience with them and for more details you can read my trip report " Trip Report - Part 1 Sydney".

For Blue Mountains I can't express how much better off you will be if you do it yourself but if you want a tour company that was good, Dal Myles was recommended on here - my experience, also on the Trip Report was sub-par but I attribute that to the tour guide and it being his last day of work ( he was a poor guide ). Anyway, again, you will get rushed around the Blue Mts with a tour and not enjoy places the way you would desire. Do a search on Blue Mts and read some posts where people tell you how to "do it yourself". There are a bunch of options to self drive or train to Katoomba /Leura. From my experience - not following that advice when I planned was my biggest and only real regret of the entire vacation.

Good luck -- sorry I can't provide info about Jenolan Caves.
