In our amazing fun day tour you’ll hear stories about Aboriginal dreamtime, snakes and spiders, trees, rocks, local wildlife and waterfalls from people who know the areas from experience. Step into our office, the Blue Mountains are awaiting you!
A Sydney day trip: cheaper and so much easier than doing it yourself!
Why would you take a Blue Mountains Day Trip? There’s quite a lot of reasons actually! Most of our destinations are many kilometers from any train station or public transport, and also many kilometers away from each other! We have years of experience. It is very difficult to do what we do in a day without the knowledge we have gained over many years, and especially not for the price. If you went by train, the destinations are impossible to cover in a day. If you went by car the fuel alone would be quite expensive, let alone knowing how to get to all the best places. We have lunch included, guided bushwalks with great guides and no extra charges. Our Blue Mountains Day Tour has been catered to fit the most into a day and at the same time keep it as relaxing and fun as possible. We pick you up from Sydney and drop you back to Sydney in the afternoon
I went on the Blue Mountains tour with Happy Coach and had an excellent trip! The tour guide Shane was very informative, friendly, funny and approachable. I learnt a lot and it really had a personal feel. Lots of hiking involved (around 3 hours in total) but nothing too strenuous.
Would 100% recommend going through this company as pick up from great locations, a full long day with delicious food and the best guide you could hope for. 5/5!
“Great Blue Mountains tour with the Happy Coach Sydney”
‘We took a Sunday tour to the Blue Mountains with the Happy Coach company, that worked out well for us. We went with this tour because we liked the idea of getting out and doing some decent hikes, instead of just being bussed from one sight-seeing spot to another. The bush hike at Wentworth Falls was a highlight – awesome views, and just long enough to feel like you achieved something. Despite the fact that we were travelling on a Sunday (read – loads of tourists), our guide was adept at giving us the full Blue Mountain experience without the throngs of crowds, kept us thoroughly entertained and amused with a mix of facts and Auzzie funny. Great Blue Mountains tour – well recommended’
‘After exhaustive research on which tour to take to the Blue Mountains, we decided on The Happy Coach. It was perfect for us! The bus is small and air conditioned (a real plus there), and our fearless leader Rod was interesting, knowledgeable and funny. He’s very familiar with the area. Rod explained all about what we were seeing, and gave us insights into the Australian culture. We hiked to Wentworth Falls and saw spectacular views, including wild cockatoos. The hike is not at all difficult for anyone who’s in fairly decent shape, It is about an hour and includes some ups and downs and stairs, but I’m 66 and my boyfriend is 75 and it was no problem for us. Then we had a smaller bushwalk, which was very impressive indeed (no other coaches there), and then we enjoyed a simple, nourishing lunch in another beautiful spot before going to see the Three Sisters. Then we headed for home. Rod not only navigated the trails beautifully, but navigated us through Sydney traffic just as well. We had a wonderful time and recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see The Blue Mountains in all their natural splendor, it’s a long day – but it’s well worth the trip!’

‘I went on a Blue Mountains tour with Happy Coach Tours today, and it was excellent.
It’s a small bus – 21 passengers plus the driver/guide – and it felt like a small group, like a personalized tour. Our guide was fantastic. He was friendly and cheerful the whole day. Great energy.
They picked us up on time in the city, and then we drove out to Blue Mountains National Park (air-conditioned bus, bonus!). We did a great hike around Wentworth Falls. The stories and jokes were hilarious, and they know quite a bit about the local wildlife.
This was a great tour by a superb tour guide, and very good value in my humble opinion for a full day of activities and lunch included’
