Frequently Asked Questions


How much is the tour?

Our tour is $70 per person, lunch is also included in the price, a tour guide and driver, the bus and walking. We usually drive around 260 km in a day to the Blue Mountains


Are there any extra charges?

There are no extra charges on a normal day at The Happy Coach Sydney. We do recommend to bring a little bit of extra money for morning tea and drinks, or you can bring your own


We are of a certain age group, will this tour be suitable for us?

We have people of all age groups from all demographics from all over the world coming to walk through the forest with us! If you like a good healthy walk, you will love our tour. There is a medium level of fitness required, if you can walk up the stairs in a building that is 5 floors high with no problems, then you will be fine on our tour


Do we catch the ferry home?

No we don’t drop at the ferry which takes you back to Circular Quay to leave you to make your own way home, we drop you back in the city. We previously had the ferry as an option to return to Sydney, but we found that after doing a full days tour and walking, almost everyone preferred to get dropped back to the city instead.


Do we visit any scenic rides or wildlife parks?

We don’t have any extra charges, and scenic rides cost $40 per person extra to visit there. We will make exceptions for groups of 4 or more people, the whole group must pay the extra to do the rides

We don’t visit wildlife parks on our tour, but we can give you great advice on were to see and visit animals and parks in your own time. We have done tours with wildlife parks included, and you really don’t get enough time to stay and see enough animals and go to the mountains to get a full good day. Most tours will only let you stay at a wildlife park for 40 mins to 1 hour as they have a lot to cover in one day, and limited time


I have a special dietary requirement, will I be okay?

Our food is prepared fresh, the ingredients are separate and we can cater for most standard dietary requirements. It is best if you tell us what your requirements are, and we will do our best to accommodate you!


What is your cancellation policy?

We have a 48 hour 100% payment cancellation policy on reserved spaces on tours


Do you have minimum numbers of passengers to run the tour?

Yes, we require at least 8 people to run the tour. There is a small possibility we may have to cancel the tour if we don’t have enough passengers to cover costs, which is very rare


Do you have a discount rate for children/seniors/people with a card from an organisation?

Sorry! Everyone pays the same amount on Happy Coach!


I have a medical condition, will I be okay?

We do a fair amount of walking on our tour, we recommend that you need to be of a medium level of fitness. The example I often use is, if you can walk up the stairs in a building that is 5 floors high with no problems, then you will be fine on our tour. If you do have a concern, please ask us first and discuss it with your tour guide on the day


Why is your tour so much cheaper than others?

That’s a good question! We really should make it more expensive shouldn’t we?!


Do you offer other tours?

We sure do! We offer other tours to lots of destinations, but we only offer them as full day full bus charters. Please contact us for details
